Glass washers: types you should know about

Glass washers: types you should know about

It goes without saying that any commercial property needs a professional piece of glass cleaning kit, and a simple household dishwasher isn't going to do the job. Whether you run a hotel, bar, cafe, restaurant or other commercial venue, there is a range of glass washers on the market to suit your needs.

We've selected a number of brands of glass washers and what they offer to help you decide on the machine most suitable for your business:


Prodis glass washer models range in price from £550.00 to £1,200.00, with the lower to mid-range models adapted for small businesses and the higher priced models suitable for large-scale events requiring heavy duty washing. The basic model is of stainless steel construction offering a 2-minute wash cycle and a gravity drain. It is simple to operate, has removable wash arms for easy cleaning, includes a wash pump filter to protect the wash pump, and has a timed rinse aid pump for precise chemical dosing. Optional extras include a stand, rack and built-in water softener at a small additional cost, and the warranty on parts lasts one year.


This brand offers a slightly more sophisticated glass washer with appliances ranging from £750.00 to £2,000.00. As you would expect, the item offers accessories and benefits to match this higher price. For example, the innovative Evolution 501 model offers as standard an attractive LCD display and introduces extra cycles for special applications, such as for plate cleaning, for long washes and for steel cutlery, all of which are designed to produce the best and most efficient results. All of this can be yours with a 2-year warranty on parts and labour. You can pay extra for an adjustable stand and for professional installation by the manufacturer's own engineers.


A mid-range Classeq glass washer comes with a 1-year warranty on parts and labour and costs in the region of £1,000.00 excluding installation and optional features like baskets, a stand or a water softener. The licensed caterers' number one choice, Classeq delivers with this glass washer on simplicity and sophistication. It has an integral detergent and rinse aid dispenser as well as a full coverage double filter system and 2-minute wash cycle. Once again, Classeq's own engineers can install this washer for you.

Glass washer accessories

As with any piece of robust equipment, there is a certain amount of maintenance required to keep your system up and running and able to deliver a consistent service throughout peak periods. With glass washers, you may initially need to purchase compartment shelf storage in which to place your glasses, and these shelf storage items come in a range of sizes to suit different types of glassware.

For instance, should you be catering for a wedding reception with 200 guests having a sparkling toasting wine, you may need a crate that can hold the maximum number of champagne flutes as opposed to one destined for pint glasses which might be better suited to pubs, clubs or festival environments.
