Every professional kitchen needs a professional dishwasher to help keep things clean and ready for the next use. An undercounter dishwasher, also known as a front loading dishwasher, sits out of the way and can finish a single wash within two minutes.
Do you have a lot of dishes in use in your kitchen all the time? Then you need a versatile appliance like an industrial front loading dishwasher that sits under the counter. It's suitable not only for glassware, but also plates, cutlery, cups, saucers, utensils and pans. Within two minutes, these dishwashers are finished cleaning the dishes and you can get back to the business of serving up delicious meals for your guests. Models are available for both 40 x 40cm baskets and 50 x 50cm baskets.
Is a professional undercounter dishwasher suitable for my business?
Professional undercounter dishwashers are indispensable in catering kitchens. They offer all of the benefits of one that is suitable for home use, plus so much more. The biggest factor is that these dishwashers are a lot more powerful so they can clean your dishes in a fraction of the time. The shortest programme on a dishwasher for the home can take 30 minutes. A professional undercounter dishwasher, however, takes between 1-3 minutes. This way you have access to your plates, glasses and utensils again as quickly as possible.
Household undercounter dishwashers also lack the flushing power of a professional dishwasher, such as these ones from Maxima. The hard water jets in these machines clean stubborn food residue much better and are ideally suited to daily intensive use. They are highly durable and can really take a beating. They also don't get clogged easily because the nozzles and wash arms are easy to clean.

How do you clean a catering dishwasher?
Most professional dishwashers consist of stainless steel parts that can be detached for quick cleaning. That's why you only need a little soap and water to do the rest.
- First, remove any food residue with a damp cloth.
- Use warm water and a little bit of soap for the top of the dishwasher and the tap.
- Don't forget to clean the outside and the handle of the dishwasher.
- Empty the dishwasher's filter and rinse it under a tap before reassembling it.
- Turn on the empty dishwasher and use a descaling agent and a special cleaning agent to clean the inside.
By regularly dismantling and thoroughly cleaning the filter, the washing arms and the nozzles of the machine, you prevent blockages and limescale. The filter should be emptied regularly and make sure you also keep the edges of the door clean.
