Understanding our dishwasher range and what’s best for your application

While Richard Jay is well known for our specialised expertise in commercial and industrial laundries, we are proud to offer our customers an end-to-end cleaning range that also extends to kitchen and housekeeping solutions.  

In the kitchen, the right dishwasher is essential to efficient, hygienic operation, and commercial kitchens demand a machine of a certain capacity and quality. 

Whereas domestic dishwashers generally take between 30 minutes and 2 hours to complete a cycle, professional settings require faster processes, with commercial dishwashers completing a cycle every 1 to 3 minutes. 

In order for professional dishwashers to work so quickly without compromising on hygiene, they must have certain features, including a wash tank that maintains a temperature of 55℃ to 60℃ and a rinse boiler that maintains a temperature of 80℃ to 90℃ to ensure best-in-class rinsing and sanitisation. 

Richard Jay stocks a range of models in different sizes to suit a variety of setups and applications. 

  Our glass washer, Electrolux Professional Model 402319, is the most compact option, ideal for space poor setups such as cafes and bars. It requires a 15 amp 240V plug point.


  The next size up is our most popular dishwasher, the general Electrolux Professional Undercounter Model 400208. This machine is an ideal solution for any commercial kitchen with enough space to accommodate an undercounter dishwasher with a slightly larger footprint. This can be used for processing most items, where the prior model is designed primarily as a glass washer.


Finally, we have our best-selling hood-type dishwasher, Electrolux Professional Model 505103 – a staple in larger kitchens around Australia and the most ergonomic option. For businesses with the possibility of accommodating the larger footprint, this machine offers the benefits of processing efficiency of up to 60 racks per hour. 


It’s worth noting that as each of these models includes an automatic chemical dosing pump, businesses will need to allow space to house the detergent and rinse aid chemicals. 

Does your business need a tailored dishwashing solution comprising glass washers, undercounter dishwashers, hood-type dishwashers or a combination? The Richard Jay team is here to help – for assistance with selecting the right model, give us a call on 1300 742 427 or fill in our contact form.
