Best-in-class commercial dishwashers for your professional kitchen
Browse our commercial dishwasher range...
Our simple-to-use equipment includes our compact, undercounter dishwashers (front loading) which fit neatly into smaller spaces.
They cover the same footprint as a domestic machine, but are boosted by the enhanced cleaning performance of their purpose-built commercial design with time-saving cycles and water-saving programmes.
Pass through dishwashers
High turnover of plates and crockery demands a higher capacity dishwashing ‘workhorse.’
Our larger passthrough equipment is ideal for streamlining the cleaning process in busy commercial kitchens, offering heavy-duty performance when washing 100s of plates per hour and an guarantee exceptional rinse-finish on a large scale.
Freshwater, tank and thermal disinfection options
The JLA commercial dishwasher range features both freshwater and energy/water-saving tank type dishwashers, as well as models with thermal disinfection cycles – perfect for environments where audited infection control and compliance with food hygiene regulations is critical.
Speed, simplicity, reliability and superior wash quality
Our commercial dishwashers are designed to make it quick and easy to clean your cutlery, crockery, kitchen and utensils.
Whether you’re running a restaurant, pub, school, or hospital ward, a commercial dishwasher is going to be the key to unlocking a swift food service if you have a kitchen as part of your facility. When you’re catering for lots of people (choose appliances that wash from 200 to 1000s of plates per hour with programmes from just 90 seconds), there’s no substitute for heavy-duty warewashing appliances that are designed with the power, capacity and performance needed to keep those spotlessly clean plates, glasses and utensils coming.
We’ll take care of it.

Commercial vs domestic dishwashers
The biggest advantage a commercial dishwasher has over its domestic cousin is speed. Fast washing cycles, coupled with higher temperatures that reduce drying time, mean you can get through more dirty dishes in less time. Cycles take minutes rather than hours, and are therefore invaluable when facing a constant stream of cutlery, crockery and utensils.
Quicker cycles can also make commercial dishwashers more energy and water efficient. Tank models in particular can help you cut costs by storing warm water after a wash – thus reducing water reheating time and water waste overall.
And of course, because they are designed with the rigours of busy catering operations in mind, the sturdy build quality of commercial dishwashers makes them tough to beat when it comes to lifespan and reliability.

Commercial dishwasher FAQs
Since finding the best industrial dishwasher for your needs is dictated by your industry sector, there’s no simple answer here. The commercial dishwasher that’s best for you based on capacity, performance and features may not be adequate for other businesses, and vice versa.
JLA supplies undercounter dishwashers, pass through dishwashers, rack and conveyor dishwashers, industrial dishwashers, glasswashers and utensil washers, so you’re sure to find the right fit for your business.
Commercial dishwashers range from £500 to £20,000, and because of this wide variation, your requirements and bespoke additions will ultimately determine the price tag.
Naturally, large, industrial dishwashers intended for high-demand environments will have a higher upfront cost than smaller models. However, since they’re typically more efficient to run, they could actually help you money on energy-related costs in the long term. Tank models, in particular, can help you cut costs by storing warm water after a wash – thus reducing water reheating time and water waste overall.
If your requirements are commercial, then yes, an industrial dishwasher is recommended. Commercial warewashers are designed with the rigours of busy catering operations in mind, while their sturdy build quality makes them tough to beat when it comes to lifespan and reliability.

That all depends on the type of cleaning required, as well as the hygiene compliance standards your organisation is bound to.
Generally, we recommend between 49-60°C for a standard commercial dishwasher clean, and 85°C or higher when thermal disinfection is required (say, in a care home or hospital environment). JLA industrial dishwashers are up to the task of delivering these temperature ranges, guaranteeing exceptional performance wash after wash.
Before using a commercial or industrial dishwasher, it’s important to read the manual and review the steps required for correct operation and loading. The good news is, JLA commercial dishwashers are very intuitive and easy to use, so you and your staff should have no difficulties getting up and running with your new machine.
A premium, high-quality commercial dishwasher should last approximately 8-10 years, but this can vary depending on several factors. Installation, regular servicing and maintenance, repairing any issues, consistent cleaning, and operator use/misuse all affect the lifespan of a commercial dishwasher. Be sure to make use of your Total Care guarantee to have your JLA commercial dishwasher serviced and repaired at the recommended intervals.
Cleaning a commercial dishwasher is a similar process to cleaning a domestic appliance. Sure, it’s not much fun, but regular cleaning is essential to guarantee flawless results and keep your machine in the best possible condition.
