The Many Types Of Dishwasher Racks That You Can Find
Posted: May 13, 2019
When you are in the catering business you are no doubt in it for two reasons. First you are in it for the money, and that is just fine. Why ever not? Catering involves long hours, so you need to get a fair reward.
Also, you’re in it for the joy of producing food that people will love. Being a caterer is a form of artistry, and when people love what you produce you get pleasure from it as well as the income. In fact, the better you are, the more income you will make because your customers will spread the word.
However, as with everything in this world, there is always a downside. If you are an artist, you have to buy paints, and perhaps sit on a windswept moor in the depths of February to capture the image you want to portray. If you are a taxi driver, you may have to work all night. If you are a gardener, you have to do a lot of digging and get covered in mud. And if you are in catering, you have to do the darned washing up after your customers have eaten.
All right, today we have some automation, so you don’t have to get out a mop and stand at the sink for half the night. You have a dishwasher. But that means that you need dishwasher trays for plates, cutlery, a dishwasher cup rack for cups, another one for glasses, and so on.
Now you would think that dishwasher trays were fairly simple things, but there are many different types, and some are very good, while others are actually virtually useless. It depends very much on the design of the trays. Some set the utensils at the right angles so that they get thoroughly cleaned, while others simply don’t let the water through at the right angles to get everything perfectly clean. That means that you can get cups and glasses coming out of the dishwasher that still have lipstick on them, and smears, and at best need drying and polishing. Other items may not be properly cleaned either.
There is a company in Austria, called Friers, which has devoted itself to producing catering dishwasher trays which actually do what you expect them to do: that is, clean and dry the mugs, glasses, plates, cutlery, and so on, so that it all comes out of the dishwasher perfectly clean and dry and all you need to do is to pick up the tray full of glasses or whatever and put it into storage for its’ next use. That is the way things should work. You want to be experimenting with your next recipe, not standing by the dishwasher drying and polishing cups and glasses.
Friers also has many other innovative ideas. Not only are the dishwasher cup rack and glass racks that they have designed built so that they ergonomically allow the water at the correct angle into them to get them thoroughly clean, but they have lots of other benefits too. For example, they are not only sturdy and long-lasting, but they are available in seven different colours so that you can colour code your different glasses, for example, making them very simple to pick out and select the right ones for the right glasses. So you can have all your champagne glasses in one colour, your whisky glasses in another, and so on.
Then they have a choice of coding clips in different colours which is another way of identifying specific racks. The glass racks that they produce can be fitted with tilting clips so that the water easily drains off the bottom of the glass.
Not only that, the glass racks can be customised using their Clix system which means that you can allow for glasses in no less than eleven different heights from 73mm to 260mm. What’s more, you don’t need any tools to adjust them. The glass racks are also available in different formats so that you can allow for any width and type of glass as well.
Friers doesn’t just make glass and cup racks, but racks to hold plates, saucers, cutlery, and so on in all sorts of different sizes and designs to fit both your business and your budget.
