TOPIC 2 - CLEAN SERVICE WARE ANDUTENSILSIt is important to understand the correct way to sort and load dishwashers, as well as how to hand wash items so as to have a safe and healthy food preparation area and reduce incidents of illness in customers.SORT SERVICE WARE AND UTENSILS AND LOAD DISHWASHER WITHAPPROPRIATE ITEMSWhen using a dishwasher you should always follow the manufacturer’s guide when loading service wares and utensils into the dishwasher. Following the instructions allows for the dishes, utensils, service ware and cooking equipment to be thoroughly cleaned and reduce the chance of bacteria growing, therefore causing illness.It will also reduce the chance that the dishwasher, or item placed into the dishwasher can become damaged, from either falling or slipping inside the machine, thereby adding an unwanted extra cost to the running of the establishment.Basic steps to loading a dishwasher:1.Scrape off anything left on the dish2.Pre-rinse dishes if required. Some dishwashers do not require this step3.Some dishes with baked-on food may benefit from a pre-soak before being loaded into the dishwasher4.Load plates into the bottom section, facing towards the centre of the dishwasher Ensure that all surfaces are separated so the water can get to them5.Arrange cups, glasses, and bowls in the top section of the dishwasher6.Put your plastic items on the top rack. In most dishwashers the heating element is on the bottom, so plastic items in the bottom rack may melt or warp7.Pots and pans go open-side down in the bottom section of the dishwasher8.Load the cutlery basket. Cutlery should be loose through the basket and mixed to prevent items from nesting. Long pieces of cutlery should go in the upper basket, and sharp knives should only be hand washed as the dishwasher may dull them. SITHKOP001 Manual V1.0 Aug 201611
9.If cutting boards do not fit in the plate slots, place them on the very outside of the bottom section of the dishwasher, although it may be preferable to hand wash them as the heat from the dishwasher often warps cutting boards10. Add detergent; if you use powdered dishwasher detergent, fill to the designated line. If you use pellet-style detergent, add one pellet11. Some, but not all, dishwashers require a rinse agent. If yours does, check the level and, if necessary, fill to the designated line12. Be aware when stacking breakables that the dishes can vibrate during the washing
