Our dishwashers are made to stand up to the rigors of K-12 food service. So, no matter how many plates (and trays, and bowls, and forks, and spoons) you have spinning at any given time, you know that you’re serving your students on clean dishes. Better yet, you know that you’re serving them on clean dishes that were cleaned quickly while shrinking your carbon footprint and saving money by conserving energy, water, and your staff’s precious time.
