Commercial Dishwasher or not?

porthacking | Nov 12, 2009 03:10 AM

I am sick to death of domestic dishwashers with gimmicky draws and trays that do a poor job at cleaning. I used to run a cafe and we used a small commerical dishwasher (Sammic) that had a 2 minute cycle. Everything came out sparkly clean and it was easy to use. I also liked the easy to use trays that didn't have flimsy plastic coated metal prongs that force you to arrange 4 plates and 3 bowls a certain way. With the commercial it is easy to put anything in it, because the trays just have sturdy plastic spikes that make it easy to position any combination of plates, bowls, glasses, etc. They also only use about 2.0L of water per wash.

Any thoughts? Anybody use a Commerical washer at home? Are they too harsh somethings? (I think they are quite high pressure compared to a domestic unit).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
