Three Differences Between Glass Washers and Dishwashers

Three Differences Between Glass Washers and Dishwashers

25/08/2017 02:15 PM |

If you run a business that serves food or drink, then cleaning your dishes and glassware is an important aspect of your business. Nobody wants to visit a bar, restaurant or cafe and be served food or drink from items that are dirty. So, these types of business need cleaning machines to ensure that anything customers will use is as clean as it can be. Glass washers are a great way to ensure that glasses are clean and sparkling, and here we look at three reasons why you should be using one of these for glasses rather than a dishwasher.

Not Mixing Glasses with Crockery

It is a good idea to keep glasses separate from crockery and cutlery that can contain food waste. There are a couple of reasons for this. One reason is that food waste can get on to glasses and leave them not as clean as you would like them to be. The other reason is that the cycle of a dishwasher is much longer than that of a glass-washing machine, so you would be waiting a long time for your glasses to be washed, and you wouldn't be able to wash as many in one go because they would be mixed with crockery.


As you will only be using the machine to wash glasses, it stands to reason that such a machine will not take up as much space in your bar or kitchen as a standard dishwasher, although you will still need to measure the model you are considering against the space you have to make sure it will fit. When you are looking at size, you need to think about how many glasses you are likely to wash in a one-hour period. Most glass-washing machines have a cycle time of two minutes, so you can do 30 loads in an hour. If you think about how many glasses you would fit into 30 washing racks, then you will know whether the machine you are considering is big enough.

Easy-to-Use Cycles and Controls

Unlike dishwashers, which can have many different cycles, glass washers usually have up to three washing cycles and have controls that are easy to use and include an LED display on the outside, allowing you to check the status of your cycle. They also usually include an automatic self-cleaning cycle, which most dishwashers do not, and some models also include an energy-saving mode. Most glass-washing machines include two racks, which means one can be washing in the machine while the other one is being loaded. Glass-washing machines also release the detergent and rinse aid through a pump rather than having to use tablets or powder and separate rinse aid, as with a conventional dishwasher.

Hopefully, this has helpfully explained why it is a good idea to have a separate machine for washing glasses. This will ensure that your glassware sparkles and is also clean and hygienic to drink from. As you can see, there is a good idea for many reasons.
