Choosing a pass through dishwasher for your commercial kitchen

Choosing a Pass Through Dishwasher is often a decision between an Underbench unit (which are best for small kitchens and bars) and a pass-through (which are better for high volume commercial kitchens). Your decision will rest on the following factors:

  • Output — how many plates, cups, glasses, and cutlery items will need to wash during peak service?
  • Benches — have you factored in the space (and acquisition) of dishwashing inlet and outlet benches?
  • Height — does your commercial kitchen have enough room for the pull-down hood?
  • Utilities — will you be able to connect your dishwasher to water mains and a suitable power source?

If you’re not sure, don’t hesitate to ask our sales team any of these question as well as information about: output and dish capacity, hybrid controls, water consumption, wash cycles, electricity usage, machine noise.

What is a Pass Through Dishwasher?

A passthrough dishwasher is no ordinary dishwashing machine; it’s built to withstand the demands of a commercial kitchen. This powerful appliance features a unique hood manually pulled down to initiate the washing process. Additionally, it may include inlet and outlet benches on either side, allowing dirty and clean plates to be arranged before and after washing. Hence, the name ‘passthrough dishwasher’.

Most passthrough dishwashers recycle their rinse water throughout cycles and come in single or three-phase power variations. The three-phase units may use slightly more power than the 240V versions, but they’re much more efficient. Thanks to their extra capacity, they can heat up, rinse, and drain much faster. Running a passthrough dishwasher on a single phase 240V may take considerably longer to heat and reheat the rinse water, ultimately slowing down the entire dishwashing process.

Passthrough dishwashers are typically much more significant than their domestic counterparts and can wash up to 900 dishes per hour! While they may be more expensive, their efficiency and capacity make them a wise investment for any busy restaurant.

How does a pass through dishwasher work?

Every day, restaurants use hundreds of plates, glasses, and pairs of utensils. Managing high volumes of washing up before, during, and after each service is crucial to maintaining the overall workflow of your restaurant and avoiding health and safety hazards. Customers should always receive food on a clean plate.

Many commercial kitchens use passthrough dishwashers to frequently manage large loads of dirty places without impacting workplace efficiency. These dishwashers are remarkably easy to use. Load the dishwasher with dirty dishes, set the cycle, and wait for clean plates, glassware, and utensils.

Passthrough dishwashers often have special features to make washing dirty dishes more accessible and practical. For example, the Eswood ES25 Passthrough Dishwasher offers thermostatic temperature control, a built-in automatic rinse dispenser and detergent dose, and a safety magnetic switch to open the hood. These features can guarantee a safe and comprehensive clean every time.

What is the benefit of a Pass Through Dishwasher?

Traditional undercounter dishwashers are different from the advantages of passthrough dishwashers. These dishwashers are large and can accommodate a significant load of dishes. For instance, the Eswood ES32 Glass & Dishwasher can hold up to 60 racks per hour, equating to 1,080 plates or 2,160 glasses per hour, making it suitable for most restaurants. It also has built-in steam recovery, eliminating the need for a separate exhaust canopy.

Passthrough dishwashers with rinse pumps have a higher water pressure, enabling them to clean dishes more effectively even in areas with low water pressure. They also have various settings, allowing users to customize the cycle according to their needs. For example, the Eswood ES50 Heavy Duty Dishwasher has three automatic processes, including a short, standard, and intensive program, making it possible to give dishes a quick rinse or a thorough scrub.

Finally, passthrough dishwashers often have a short cycle time, enabling users to quickly get their dishes clean and back into service. This feature is especially beneficial for large-scale kitchens where access to plates, glassware, and cutlery can significantly impact the quality of service.

If you need to wash many dishes quickly and efficiently, passthrough dishwashers are an excellent choice for your food service business.

How to Choose a Pass through Dishwasher.

When selecting the ideal passthrough dishwasher for your restaurant, there are a few factors to consider. First, choose a model that fits the available space without disrupting the kitchen’s floor plan. Next, compare different models’ energy and water usage to find a cost-effective one. Lastly, consider the essential features of your restaurant, such as built-in sanitizing systems, extra rinse cycles, reverse osmosis, or storage options. Considering these facts, you can confidently select the perfect passthrough dishwasher for your needs.
