Do you have a low temp washer for washing dishes in your restaurant? Trying to decide between a low temp or high temp option?

The low temp option might be for you if you are dead set again the idea of a booster heater addition. Washing dishes at a lower temperature requires the use of sanitizing chemicals instead of the super heater water. Both techniques comply with Health and Sanitation codes, but which one is best for your restaurant?

Regarding the chemicals, some drawbacks include proper storage of these toxic substances somewhere near your kitchen. They also require that your staff is fully trained in using these chemicals, which are not very environmentally friendly. And, they require an ongoing purchasing costs.

The high temp option does require the installation of a booster heater, which will super heat the water to the required 180 degrees. The booster heater comes in both gas and electric, which each have their pros and cons.

To Boost or Not to Boost?

If you want to go with the high-temp warewasher, a booster heater is for you.

In the business we like to avoid using the common (albeit misguided) term “hot water heater.” We prefer plain ol’ water heater. Why? Because “hot water heater” is redundant. Think about it: you don’t need to heat already hot water; you need to heat regular tap water. Get it?
