While commercial dishwashers are by far the preferred way to clean dishes in a commercial kitchen setting, sometimes there isn't room for one in the kitchen or the budget. Even if you do have a warewasher, it's important to have a backup option in case it breaks or if you have oversized or oddly shaped items that need to be washed and sanitized. KaTom offers a wide selection of sinks, faucets, and accessories to ensure you can find what you need.
Common Questions About Dishwashing Sinks and Faucets
What is the 3-sink method?
The three-sink method is a dishwashing system that cleans and sanitizes dishes without the use of a warewasher. Each sink compartment is assigned a specific part of the cleaning cycle. In order, the three compartments are wash, rinse, and sanitize.
What are the benefits of a pre-rinse faucet?
A pre-rinse faucet, often used in a pre-scrape area in a four-compartment sink, provides high-pressure water to help clear food off plates and other dishes before they are washed in a sink or warewasher. Pre-scraping your dishes helps keep your wash water cleaner for longer and can help ensure that dishes only require a single wash in the dishwasher, saving you time and money.
What is a drainboard?
A drainboard is a flat or textured surface provided on one or both ends of some commercial dishwashing sinks. These can be used as work areas or as areas for dishes to drain and dry after they are washed. In most cases, drainboards are angled slightly toward the sink to encourage water to run back toward the drain.
