Classeq Choice for Smaller Ops

Smaller outlets should not be seduced into thinking a domestic dishwasher will cut the mustard environmentally or cost wise.


Many smaller premises such as B&Bs, farmhouse tearooms and small start- up cafes may be tempted to struggle on with a domestic dishwasher as they build up their business. However this can be a false economy as domestic dishwashers are not built to withstand the heavy use of a commercial operation. Commercial machines are cheaper to run and far more energy- and water-efficient.


Whereas domestic dishwashers are usually designed to perform one wash per day, a commercial machine is designed to go through 30 washes or more per day. “A domestic machine usually takes between 45 to 90 minutes per cycle, which is a long time to wait to turn dishes around,” explains Nick Burridge of Classeq. However, a small commercial dishwasher will just take a few minutes to compete its cycle.


The Duo 500, Classeq’s smallest model takes just three minute to complete a cycle. It’s a small and affordable front loading dishwasher with a footprint of only 470mm x 550mm and height of 760mm.


Integral chemical dosing pumps ensure accurate dispensing of detergents, saving time and money. The Duo 500’s extremely low capacity wash tank, only 10 litres, means a quicker start-up time and lower bills as there is less water to heat than in comparable models. Another energy- saving feature is its full-coverage filter system which keeps the wash water cleaner for longer, resulting in fewer water changes, cleaner plates and lower energy bills.
