La Dolce Vita - dishwasher info found!

Sherri | Jan 21, 2006 02:20 PM

You posted a query about replacing your 9 yr. old Maytag dishwasher and I seem to remember that you run the machine several times a day. Many of the posters answered with suggestions about commercial dishwashers but went on to say that those required special plumbing, etc. and are not suitable for home use.

Cut to the chase, Sherri -- Cookbook author Ken Hom has a Hobart commercial dishwasher in his kitchen that is suitable for residential use. It looks exactly like a "regular" dishwasher, i.e. has an under-cabinet mount & front door instead of the restaurant-style countertop sliding style. With a 90 second cleaning cycle, this just might be the answer to your prayers. Hobart's phone number is: 937.332.3000. You can see a photo of this model in the book GREAT KITCHENS, AT HOME WITH AMERICA'S TOP CHEFS, pg. 9.

Good Luck on your hunt, hope this helps.
