Winterhalter’s glasswasher is bang on trend
Advice on looking after fashionable glassware
In the parts of East London where they like to set a trend rather than follow one, there’s a newfound love for a traditional pub favourite. Turns out that old-school beer jugs with dimpled glass are making a comeback. While this is great for the nostalgic, it’s not necessarily so good for bar staff.An average pub has a broad range of glassware, from fragile wineglasses to the solid, intricate shapes of the traditional beer mugs and a proliferation of shaped lager glasses, often featuring decorations. These require different cleaning styles to maximise their lifespan.
While most places won’t need a different glasswasher for each kind of glass they use, looking after the different types needs a little planning.
Winterhalter, the market leader in glasswashers, offers some tips on getting the best results from your glasswasher.
- Some modern machines have adjustable controls letting them easily adapt to different types of glass, so make sure your staff know what setting should be used for what type of glass.
- If you find that your glasswasher isn’t cleaning properly or is damaging the decorations on the glass, make sure it’s on the correct setting. If the problem persists, you might have to get an engineer in to have it checked out.
- If glasses are still coming out dirty or streaky after making these changes, check the dosing of the detergent and rinse aid and make sure they are correctly proportioned.
- Busy pubs where a fast turnaround is required may want to consider using lower temperature settings for the cleaning cycle. This allows glasses to come out cool and ready for instant use.
Winterhalter’s UC series of undercounter glasswashers has easily adjustable washing pressure, with three different programmes controlled from the intuitive icon-driven touchscreen. Fine wine glasses are washed gently while more robust glasses and mugs are washed more vigorously, all within the same amount of time. Other elements of the wash – temperature, dosing, etc. – are adjusted automatically dependent on the program, making it a simple to use but powerful addition to any busy drinking establishment.
“At a time when landlords and bar owners are thinking further outside the box than ever before to attract customers, it’s good to know that more unusual fashions or revivals of traditional glassware can be integrated with modern kitchen technology,” says Paul Crowley, marketing manager at Winterhalter.
