So I was recently researching dishwashers for my home. Every list a quick Google search brings up are fairly similar, with reviewers of such things listing Miele as the number one option. Even the lists that don’t rank them at No. 1, acknowledge that they pretty much are the best, but they aren’t as easy to go out and buy (and have serviced if needed) here in the U.S., and are then too pricey as well. Anyway, during this personal search of mine is when a marketing person from Miele emailed me about the brand’s Professional series targeted at craft breweries. Weird timing! The cosmos thus dictates I share this Miele equipment info with all of you. No, I did not buy a Miele, but the info below is definitely intriguing for a professional brewery.
What’s cool about the Miele’s freshwater dishwasher PG 8056 is 1) glassware-specific wash programs, 2) the ability to wash up to 380 plates per hour, 3) final rinse temperatures of 158°F for maximum hygiene, 4) 6-minute wash cycles. Overall it has 13 programs, simple to use controls and a range of configurable baskets, including the option to accommodate 19 ¾” x 19 ¾” plastic racks on 2 levels, this dishwasher can handle the unique demands of any tap room.
Fresh water system. Miele Professional fresh water circulation dishwashers ensure consistently high levels of cleaning performance by taking in fresh water between individual phases of a program cycle. A thorough final rinse is carried out at a temperature adjusted to the washed items, significantly exceeding commercial dishwasher hygiene requirements.
Special beer glasses program. Cold rinsing for glassware using the Beer Glasses program, which enhances beer froth and promotes colder serving temperatures.
Short cycles. Connections for hot water, intelligent dishwashing technology and a powerful heater pump ensure optimum program durations and cleaning results.
Perfect GlassCare. Soft water helps ensure thorough cleaning, but it is aggressive towards glass. That is why Miele Professional dishwashers use.
Perfect GlassCare in the glasses program. This technology adjusts the water hardness precisely so that all the glasses are thoroughly but gently cleaned.
Low consumption values. Miele Professional dishwashers are acclaimed for consumption efficiency. From the product design stage, they are engineered to achieve perfect dishwashing results by using no more water, energy and detergent than necessary.
User convenience. The 3-line display control panel provides information on the selected program and the current program status. Important program parameters can be conveniently changed using the intuitive touch controls.
Integrated filter system. Miele Professional dishwashers feature permanent filtering of the wash water, to help protect the machine from damage and provide optimal cleaning results.
Plastic baskets on two levels. 19 3/4 x 19 3/4” plastic baskets can be used on 2 levels, offering maximum flexibility to clean more dishes, faster. Three spray arms allow perfect cleaning results to be achieved on both washing levels.
Connection for dispenser module. To simplify the use of liquid detergents and rinse aid, up to 2 liquid
dispensing modules can be optionally connected, depending on the model. Precise and automatic dispensing ensures perfect cleaning results and easier handling.
