Utility bill savings and connectivity focus the minds of warewashing giants

Meiko M-iClean dishwasher

Warewashing is a major aspect of any foodservice operation – and operators will have the chance to see how the latest technologically-advanced machines can save time and money at the Professional Kitchen Show.

A host of manufacturers are in attendance at the show, with energy efficiency and connectivity among the key themes.

Meiko is out to highlight the sparkling and spot-free results provided by its latest dishwashing equipment. Whether it’s a hood-type pass-through or an undercounter for the bar, Meiko’s GiO reverse osmosis water treatment should eliminate hand polishing.

The latest Meiko glasswashers also feature integral lighting — including a blue showing when the machine has finished. The automatic hood on Meiko’s new M-iClean H opens and closes with a touch of the finger, stopping the need to stretch awkwardly and repeatedly lift. M-iClean H also saves up to 21% energy compared to earlier Meiko machines.

Visitors can  check out all its newest machines, as well as its ‘No Bills’ all-inclusive package, on stand 220.

Winterhalter will have its latest Connected Wash dishwashers and glasswashers on view at stand 620. They are also featured in the Kitchenology Zone smart kitchen, demonstrating how innovation and smart technology are delivering business efficiencies and sustainability.

Highlights include the latest PT Passthroughs and the new UC undercounter models, with new upgrades designed to make them more energy and water efficient. Both ranges are also available under Winterhalter’s Pay Per Wash scheme.

Major glass and dishwasher machine manufacturer Krupps has more than 50 years of experience offering products designed to be high quality and innovative.

The company was one of the first to launch Wifi-connected warewashers in 2015, with its UniKo interface allowing machines to be linked to iKloud, a system for distributors and engineers that can set machine parameters remotely and allow them to view diagnostics and schedule maintenance and servicing via any computer or smartphone. 

It will be showing visitors how its iKloud connection enables engineers to solve issues remotely, saving time and money on stand 418.

The Smeg Foodservice stand will host the new generation of the 400x400mm basket glasswasher with its new patented filter system. Additionally, the stand will highlight the re-launch of the SWT thermal disinfection machine designed specifically for the care sector.

Smeg will also be exhibiting the latest Alfa convection ovens with a host of new features. The ovens will be mounted on dedicated provers and fitted with a new condense canopy.

There will be a dedicated selection of hotel room-specific appliances including minibars, while Smeg’s service manager will be on hand at stand 330 to take visitors through the unique features of the manufacturer’s machines and after-sales support capabilities.
