Do you know what is the most annoying task for a person who cooks?
Exactly. It is washing the dishes after all the cooking. Everyone loathes it.
Cooking can be enjoyable and so much fun, but when it comes to the washing up part, it is not at all pleasant. Not just washing the oily bowls and plates, but also the greasy pots and pans, caked with burnt food.
For home cooking, the number of the bowls and plates to wash daily is not many, so it is easier to maintain the cleanliness of the kitchenware. However, for a food stall, restaurant, central kitchen, food court and other retail food establishments, dish washing is a completely different story.
Dishwashing Is A Crucial Part Of Your Operations
Serving food on a dirty-looking plate is not only unappetising, it is downright unhygienic. So every food and beverage (F&B) business needs to ensure their tableware is always presentable.
Since the utensils and dishes are used to serve food to customers, the food outlet needs to ensure the diners do not fall ill as a result of consuming contaminated food. If so, the NEA (National Environment Agency) will not only issue demerit points and impose heavy fines for food hygiene offences, the F&B business may even have its licence suspended or revoked.
The Importance Of Proper Dish Washing
1) Eliminates germs and allergens
Germs and allergens can multiply and spread very quickly while you are prepping food. Serving food on contaminated dish ware is unhygienic and irresponsible. You do not want to see anyone going to the hospital because of your dirty dishes.
2) Improves appetite
Dining at a restaurant and eating food served on a clean and wholesome plate – does it elevate your appetite? How about if your food was served on a chipped plate that has yellowish spots and you were given a fork with leftover food stuck on it?
3) Removes soap and detergent residue on tableware
Sometimes when the kitchen is shorthanded, the dishwashing job may have been carried out in a haphazard manner. Instead of rinsing off the dishwashing soap and detergent from the plate thoroughly with clean water, the worker may simply rinse it once in soapy water. Such residual soap/detergent is detrimental to our health and also affects the taste of the food.
How To Wash Dishes In The Right Way
To really get rid of all the visible dirt or invisible germs, here are some tips you need to take note of:
1) Use anti-bacterial dish soap, not your hand soap
Try not to use a hand soap to wash the dishes because hand soap is hard to rinse off, which will leave more soap residue on your dishes. Hand soap is also not as efficient as dishwashing detergent at getting the grease off your tableware and utensils.
2) Wash with hot water regularly
Hot water is one of the best ways to kill germs and wash away the grease and food scraps from your kitchenware.
Difficulty In Recruiting & Retaining Dishwashers
We believe that these days, it is getting increasingly hard for food entrepreneurs and F&B businesses to hire reliable dishwashing workers to help in their daily dishwashing chores. Locals and Malaysians shun this dirty low-paying job. Whereas with the tightening of labour laws in recent years, foreign workers such as PRCs and Bangladeshis are no longer so readily available.
With such dire shortage of manpower, it gets even tougher to make sure all your dishes and utensils are always maintained at the highest standard of hygiene.
