Last year, Miele’s ultrafast commercial dishwasher was installed at the famed DeGustibus Cooking School
in Macy’s department store, Herald Square, New York and within just a few days, the kitchen staff experienced a 70% increase in cleaning throughput. Sal Rizzo, DeGustibus’ owner, says the commercial dishwasher is a hit with the chefs and kitchen support staff responsible for making each presentation a success because of its ability to turn around dishware, cutlery and glasses in just 10 minutes. But the real news here is: You don’t have to be a chef to own one
“If a culinary school can achieve this kind of efficiency, imagine what a home cook could do with this when serving guests ranging from 25 - 250 people. This is a one of a kind product and we are thrilled to have it as a part of our kitchen operation. It makes the whole clean-up process run much smoother,” stated Rizzo.
At DeGustibus, world renowned chefs provide cooking demonstrations year round and serve a five course meal every night, so a fast dishwasher is imperative to keep the dishes, cutlery and glassware flowing.” For the estate home owner that has staff and where entertaining is part of the weekly schedule, Miele’s G 7856 commercial dishwasher is the perfect purchase with its interchangeable basket and insert system that allows for multiple cleaning of one item—such as plates or wine glasses.
At DeGustibus, Rizzo can clean 60 plates in 40 to 45 minutes to an hour and keep the kitchen and chefs moving “Prior to installing Miele’s commercial dishwasher, we had two residential dishwashers running and we had someone processing the washing of glassware the next day, which would take most of the morning. Now, the dishes are finished at night and our morning person arrives and does a load of glasses every ten minutes. She is done within an hour and sets up for the day in the process. The machine does the glasses beautifully – at a maximum of 18 minutes. It is an amazing product and simple to use,” Rizzo concluded.
There are other features that make the Miele G7856 standout. First, it is a freshwater system. While other commercial dishwashers are tank washers, which reuse dirty water over and over again, the G 7856 uses fresh water for every cycle. Even with that, the system uses very little water -- as little as 6.6 gallons per cycle. The G 7856 also provides dual-level cleaning for large load capacity. So it looks and feels more like a domestic machine, but has the power of a commercial system, which is what the objective of Miele Professional products for residential application is all about.
While throughput and speed is a leading draw for the product, the fast cycle time is not offered at the expense of cleaning performance. Miele’s high-volume commercial dishwashers have a robust water circulation system, which is 4-6 times greater than that of a residential dishwasher. It also stands out from the crowd because of its advanced programming capabilities.
The Miele G 7856 dishwasher has 6 programs, including the rapid 10-minute cycle and a very gentle China and Crystal program. Other intelligent programs adjust mechanical variables for water levels, number of rinses, wash temperatures, holding times and even a delayed start to accommodate the wide spectrum of user requirements. In addition, the G 7856 is remarkably quiet for a commercial dishwasher, so it can be installed in a butler’s pantry, a catering kitchen, a galley of a yacht or in virtually any location with close proximity to guests without being a distraction.
