In high profile hotels, commercial kitchens, restaurants, or big healthcare units, dishwashers play an important role in keeping the utensils clean and kitchen room tidy, and uphold absolute hygiene of the cooking place.
They clean dishes, pots, bowls, and cooking tools by employing dishwashing machines or by hand, store them in right place, and maintain cleanliness of workstations and cabinets.
Typically, they work under the instruction of the restaurant supervisor. They used to accumulate the dirty dishes, heap them and load them in the auto dishwashing device to rinse, adding soap. And, upon completion of the washing process, they put washed dishes at the specified place for reusing.
This is the major activity of dishwashers, though they are also expected to clean the walls of dining room, cooking room, storage place, and the floor, and assist the cooking staff in food preparation and take part in other activities too.
