Warewashing supplies; like commercial washracks and dollies, aren’t just for cleaning, they are often used for storage and transport of clean dishes, glassware, and flatware.
In institutional foodservice, warewashing is all about efficiency, durability, and simplicity. Washracks are often designed for specific types of dinnerware, drinkware, or flatware. Open racks are made to hold large products that won’t fit in anything else. Open ended washracks can accommodate sheet pans or large trays. Not only do washracks run thought the dishmachine, but often they are used to store tableware so it’s ready to use or on dollies for easy transport.

Determine your specific storage needs before purchasing: This means considering the size and shape of your dishes, as well as the amount of storage space you have available. For example, if you have large, irregularly shaped dishes, you may need to look for dish racks with adjustable prongs or tines to accommodate them. If you have limited storage space, you may want to choose smaller, stackable bus boxes.
Look for durable and sturdy materials that can withstand heavy use: Stainless steel or plastic are good options for dish racks and bus boxes because they are easy to clean and sanitize, and can withstand heavy use. Reinforced corners and sturdy construction will also help prevent damage and prolong the life of your storage items.
Select bus boxes that are stackable and have reinforced corners to prevent damage: This will help you maximize storage space and protect your dishes during transport. Stackable bus boxes allow you to efficiently use vertical space, while reinforced corners can prevent damage to your dishes when they are being moved or transported.
Consider purchasing dish dollies to easily move large quantities of dishes from one area to another: Dish dollies are great for efficiently transporting large quantities of dishes from the dishwashing area to the storage area. Look for dollies with swivel casters and brakes for easy maneuverability and stability.
Check the weight capacity of the dish racks and dollies to ensure they can safely hold the amount of dishes you need to store or transport: Overloading dish racks or dollies can lead to breakage or damage, so it's important to make sure they can safely hold the weight of your dishes. Check the weight capacity of your racks and dollies and select items that can safely hold the amount of dishes you need to store or transport.
