How to Clean Hobart Commercial Dishwashers

Hobart dishwashers are heavy duty and clean dishes quickly.

Hobart commercial dishwashers are the heavy duty dishwashers seen in restaurants and are used to clean large numbers of dishes in short periods of time. They are available in large or small sizes, making them available for home use as well as commercial use. Cleaning dishes is easy with this type of dishwasher, but like any other cleaning device, unless the dishwasher is cleaned regularly, the dishes cannot become clean either.

Items you will need

  • Dish soap
  • Wash cloth
  • Spray bottle (optional)
Step 1

Empty the dishwasher of all food particles. Depending on the exact model, the emptying will vary slightly, but usually a food tray can be pulled out from the bottom and then dumped out to remove any food that came from dishes.

Step 2

Rinse the inside and outside of the dishwasher with plain water to remove any food that did not make it into the drain. Spray water on the dishwasher with either a squirt bottle or a spraying hose from a sink if it can reach the dishwasher. Restaurants will have a hose for cleaning available that is similar to the sink sprayers, but is larger and has a longer hose.

Step 3

Dip the washcloth in water and add dish soap to the washcloth. Lather it up until the soap can be seen and then wipe down the dishwasher, starting from the inside. Wash the outside with dish soap as well.

Step 4

Rinse the dishwasher with a spray bottle or water-spraying hose from the sink to remove the soap. Look for stuck on food and scrub it away if found.

Step 5

Clean the food-catching tray with a washcloth and soap in the sink. Rinse it before replacing in its proper place.
