Many successful chefs and food-industry mavericks begin their life in the restaurant business in the back — rinsing, sanitizing plates and pans, loading and unloading the dishwasher, and being told to turn down their music.
The dishwasher, though, is the unsung hero of the food industry. People praise the food and admire the state-of-the-art cookware all the time, but the tough job of making those dirty dishes shine and sparkle like they’re better than new is taken for granted.
Whatever sector of the food industry you’re working in, you know just how much depends on having a functioning, top-of-the-line dishwasher.
Hobart’s Warewashing Units
For over 80 years, restaurants, cafeterias and others in the food industry have used Hobart dishwashers to cut through grease and keep their pots, pans and dishes clean. Not content to rest on their laurels, they have taken the lead in the power and water-efficient movement with their Advansys door technology.
The way their Advansys systems work is quite ingenious. The heart of the system is in their Energy Recovery Technology, which essentially creates a self-contained recycling system that saves a huge amount of power and money.
It works like this: You know how when you open a dishwasher, a huge amount of hot steam pours out? Well, instead of letting that steam escape, the Advansys system captures it and uses it to heat the water for the next load of dishes.
By drastically cutting back on how much energy is needed to heat the water, this process alone can save up to $1,500 a year. In addition, because Advansys dishwashers don’t require you to purchase or install any ventilation, it can save you as much as $5,000 in the first year alone.
Advansys dishwashers come in a variety of sizes, suitable for large-scale operations or under-the-bar use. They represent a major step in the future of warewashing. If you want to know more about them, contact your TriMark representative today.
