Pass Through Dishwashers FAQs

What is a pass through dishwasher?

Pass through commercial dishwashers feature a pull-down hood, which is why they are often named hood dishwashers. They typically have tables either side for dirty and clean plates in the pre-wash and post-wash cycle. It’s a system of dishwashing which is made ideal for heavy-duty pot washing in a commercial kitchen environment.

Do I need a pass through dishwasher?

If you have a large commercial kitchen, a pass through dishwasher will be a worthwhile investment and they are recommended for kitchens that serve more than 200 meals in a service period. The need for quick turnaround in dishing up is what makes them particularly valuable, and is something that can’t quite be matched by an undercounter dishwasher, more suitable to a smaller kitchen.

Establishments such as chain restaurants, holiday parks, health clubs, hotels, and care homes all find that a pass through dishwasher is an economical choice for their catering services.

If you’re unsure which is best for you, consider your available space. A commercial hood dishwasher requires a larger floor space than an undercounter dishwasher, and in many instances will need additional height, so measuring is advisable.
