The word “dishwasher” does not do justice to the process. The fundamental distinction between a commercial and an industrial dishwasher is that a commercial dishwasher is typically an off-the-shelf product that has been customized to meet specific needs. In contrast, an industrial dishwasher is custom-built equipment for a specific purpose.
A commercial dishwasher is designed to clean many food service utensils and implements. An industrial dishwasher can clean everything from engine conrods to smokehouse trolleys, eyeglasses to cheese molds, wheelie bins to boxes, and so on.
