Effectively Using Dishwashers

In this lesson, you will learn about the safe and effective use of dishwashers when cleaning and sanitising.
Dishwashing Course - Lesson Excerpt

Dishwashing Machine While dishwashers are much more effective at cleaning and sanitising kitchenware, it does come with a few more hazards.

The Two Commercial Dishwasher Types High temperature dishwashers use heat (water hotter than 80°C) to sanitise kitchenware and tableware. Check in with your local legislation for the recommended temperatures. As each region has different food safety laws. For example: Australian standards Hot water used to sanitise items should only be operated once the temperature has been released. American standards Stationery Single Rack Dishwashers must meet the minimum wash and rinse temperature of 74°C - minimum 66°–71°C wash temperature and 82°C rinse temperature for other dishwasher types European standards - One-tank dish washers require 60–65°C wash (in the wash water tank) and 80–85°C rinse (in the rinse tank or boiler) where there is no sanitiser chemical used. ## Low temperature dishwashers require chemical sanitisers to be added for effective cleaning.¹

Manual Handling Guidelines Avoid over straining and hurting yourself by following these tips: - Don't overstack dishwashing racks as these can become quite heavy when full - Ask for help in carrying heavy items - Use a dolly or cart whenever you need to move heavy things or move things over long distances - Make sure your working area is organised in a way to prevent strain on your body - use anti-fatigue mats where possible as these reduce pressure on your joints and can prevent slips and trips
