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.

How much does a commercial dishwasher cost?

Commercial dishwashers range from approximately £500 anywhere up to £20,000 and because of this wide variation, it will be your requirements and bespoke additions which will determine the price tag. Naturally, larger equipment intended for high demand environments will have a larger upfront cost than smaller models.

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.
