Undercounter Glass Washers: The Busy Kitchen’s Secret Weapon

Friday, October 11th, 2013

This week at ShortOrder, we’d like to spotlight undercounter glass washers in keeping with the “undercounter” theme (see last week’s undercounter ice machine post), Although undercounter glass washers may be rather under-celebrated in the world of commercial restaurant equipment, the fact is that they’re an extremely useful asset in a kitchen or behind a bar. Read on for ShortOrder’s glass washer exposé.
Did you know that in order for dishes to be truly sanitized, the water they’re washed in needs to reach at least 140° F? Unfortunately, this scalding temperature can be hard to reach when washing glasses by hand. Additionally, washing glasses one at a time is slow work, which in turn slows down operations in the kitchen and behind the bar, two areas that require a quick and steady pace throughout the day. The advantage of undercounter glass washers is that they both save time and fully clean and sanitize your glasses. Glass washers like the Hobart Glass Washer LXEC-3 wash 34 racks per hour, and provide auto chemical priming, detergent, a rinse aid, and sanitizer pumps.

And undercounter glass washers aren’t just efficient; they’re good for your employees, too. Bartenders in particular have to wash a large volume of glasses over the course of a day, and doing so manually can be hard on the hands, thanks to the scalding temperature that true sanitization requires, as well as any harsh chemicals in the cleaner. Automatic glass washers eliminate this problem, as they generate the high temperatures and cleaning agents you need.

On the whole, when it comes to undercounter glass washers, it turns out that less is more. Undercounter glass washers tend to be less expensive than their full-size counterparts, they use less water per cycle, and most are designed to fit underneath a standard bar counter, so you won’t have to sacrifice space at the expense of efficiency.

Hobart Glass Washers: Perfect for the Busy Bartender

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

What is a bartender’s worst nightmare? We are pretty sure the possibilities for that category are endless. However, a lack of clean glasses on a busy night does not have to be one of them. That’s why Hobart glass washers from Hobart are a perfect choice to help make a hard-pressed night behind the bar just a little bit easier.

For bartenders, challenges such as demanding patrons, spilled drinks and changing beer taps are all in a good night’s work. And during the bar rush, multi-tasking takes on a whole new meaning. However, with Hobart glass washers, the during and after dish cleanup is a cinch. With an ability to clean and sanitize 30 racks per hour, your bar or restaurant staff can focus on what you do best – serving customers and spending less time stopping to find clean glasses.  Hobart glass washers provide the quality you’ve come to expect from the makers of Hobart slicers.

The Hobart Glass Washer LXIGH+BUILDUP/208-240/1 is a great choice for fast, hot water cleaning that gets out of the bartender’s way. With dimensions of 24″W x 33.75″H x 26.75″D, this washing system easily fits under most countertops and offers convenient access without obstructing the flow of employee traffic behind the bar. Likewise, the Hobart Glass Washer LXIH-3 also offers hot water sanitation and, with dimensions of 26.9375″W x 33.75″H x 26.75″D, is just slightly larger than its LXIGH counterpart.

If you would prefer the advantages of a great Glass Washer using chemical sanitation instead of hot water, the Hobart Glass Washer LXIC-5 is another excellent choice. This fabulous machine also fits under most countertops with dimensions of 23.9375″W x 33.75″H x 26.75″D.

All three Hobart glass washers received 5-Star ratings at Short Order, your leading choice for top-notch restaurant equipment, and come with automatic fill, two dish racks, upper and lower anti-clogging wash arms and more.

Hobart glass washers can not only help eliminate at least one bartender nightmare for your bar or restaurant, but you can also be a hero to your staff too.
