Are you using a commercial ware washer for your dishes and glasses?

We’ve laid out some really handy maintenance tips to ensure your investment is running to its full potential:

Daily Tips

• Switch off power                     • Remove basket                   • Leave door open
• Drain machine                         • Remove filters
• Wash filters                               • Wipe interior
• Top up chemicals                   • Rinse out

Additional Weekly Tips

• Remove wash arms
• Strip and clean arms
• Wash machine internally with Renovater
• Regenerate water softener (If fitted)

Before placing glasses, cups or plates into the machine 5 simple steps to follow:

1. Remove lemon slices and cocktail sticks or food scraps – The machine is not a waste disposal unit
2. Manually Remove Lipstick – The machine cannot do this automatically
3. Discard any drink residues into the sink – The wash water is only refreshed between 10 & 20% each cycle
4. Do not wash or empty ashtrays into the machine
5. Do not interrupt or shorten the wash cycle – To effectively clean & dry a full cycle is essential

Other tips for the maintenance of glasses

Renovate ALL glasses bi-monthly – Invisible detergent residues will damage a beer head. Caustic detergents visually damage glasses
Renovate all new glasses before use – New glasses are coated in a mould release agent and this will damage a beer head

IDS attended the latest Chefs’ Forum

IDS attended the latest Chefs’ Forum event at the Bristol Marriott Hotel yesterday.  It was our second exhibition since joining Chefs’ Forum and it proved to be a successful day all round.

Managing Director Bruce Dance had this to say “The Chefs’ Forum is a good platform to interact with chefs and business owners and introduce them to the full range of services on offer from IDS.  We can also offer a reminder about the pitfalls of poorly installed and maintained catering equipment which can add to the annual cost of running a commercial kitchen”.
