You’re finally realizing a life-long dream: you’re opening your own restaurant and bar. You’ve paid your dues in other kitchens, and learned the trade; now it’s time to put it to good use. You’ve gotten solid financial backing, and formatted a solid business model. Now, the rubber hits the road as you design your new space, from the exterior frontage all the way to the basement, with special attention given to the kitchen – after all, the kitchen is what will make or break your venture.
In planning your kitchen, you’ve researched appliances and countertops, bake ware, cookware, cutlery, linens, and the list goes on. You’ve paid special attention to the appliances, as you need solid, reliable workhorses, capable of taking the punishment of a busy kitchen. In looking at dishwashers, you’ve selected the best – the Champion DH-5000T-HWC Door-type Genesis dishwasher.
What makes the Genesis the best? Capacity, for one thing; the champion Genesis runs fifty-three trays through an hour, as opposed to the Jackson Conserver HL, with thirty-seven, or the Fagor Commericial AD-64CW,with only thirty-five. Higher capacity means more clean dishes, and for a busy kitchen, that’s an essential.
The champion Genesis dishwasher has an extended hood (27” for trays), and an auto-start feature when the hood is closed. The unit is Energy Star rated, saving you money on your electric bill each month. The unit is field-convertible, from one to three phase, or from straight-through to corner operation. Most commercial dishwashers come with self-draining pumps, and with connections for detergent, rinse agents, and sanitizer dispensing; the three units discussed here all have these features. The Genesis has in addition to these an automatic drain valve, to drain the tank when the unit is switched off. The Genesis also has standard and heavy-duty wash cycles, to clean pots and pans as well as plates and bowls.
The champion Genesis unit is constructed with a sloped hood, to keep the hot water vapors away from the unit operator. The unit also has vent fan controls, allowing the operator to decide to vent, or not to vent, so to speak.
The champion Genesis dishwasher also has interchangeable spray arms, making maintenance an easy task. The Genesis runs a high efficiency one horsepower pump, and has a two horsepower self-draining pump as well.
The Genesis dishwasher is solidly constructed of stainless steel, to provide many years of worry-free service. The surface is easily cleaned, requiring no special chemicals.
The Genesis dishwasher unit has more features than most other commercial dishwashers, making it worth the investment. The unit features a rinse sentry, ensuring the dishes receive a final rinse in 180-degree water, per the NSF recommendations. Other washers have a similar feature, but none provide all of the features the Genesis has to offer. Champion dishwashers are a great choice for any restaurant. If you are looking to save a little money, the Champion CH2000 Dishwasher or the Champion UH130 (CMA 180UC) under counter dish washer are great alternatives.
When you build out your kitchen, you want the appliances to provide reliable service for many years, with as few visits from the repair man as possible. The Genesis commercial dishwasher does just that – it installs easily, has many options, washes more dishes in a one-hour cycle than its competitors, and is energy efficient to boot. The Genesis is well worth its cost, and will give you clean, sanitized dishes for many years. Hard to beat a combination like that.
