The investment pumped into upgrading kitchens for free school meals has transformed the way many primary schools go about washing their dirties forever.
So says Nick Howe, managing director of Court Catering Equipment, which completed a number of school fit-out projects during the summer.
He says that in many instances, traditional ways of washing dishes have now been completely overhauled.
“In a number of schools the dishwasher replaced old sterilizing sinks so the working environment has been greatly improved as there is now far less steam in the environment, notwithstanding the far better wash quality,” he said.
Court is one of Meiko’s largest distributor partners in the UK and majored on its pass-through dishwasher range for the majority of school work it carried out.
“We specified to a number of local authorities either the DV80.2GiO or the larger capacity DV200.2GiO in nearly all cases, fitted with Meiko’s AirConcept,” he revealed.
“For the schools where the head count is higher, the throughput of the twin basket DV200.2GiO has helped reduced the clear up time post service.”
