Dish Carts & Dollies
What Is a Dish Cart?
A dish cart is a type of cart specifically designed to move large quantities of plates safely and conveniently from one place to another, usually relatively short distances. A dish storage cart, on the other hand, is a type of dish cart that not only helps transport plates and dishes from one point to another but can also be used to store dishes and plates much like a dish rack.
An industrial dish cart is the perfect tool for busy restaurants and other food-service establishments that wash an extremely large quantity of dishes and plates. A large majority of rolling dish cart models can carry up to a maximum of sixty dishes at a time, so it is important to take into account how many carts you will need for your establishment. This can be determined by computing the average number of dishes are used on an hourly basis in your restaurant. For instance, establishments that wash and use more than one hundred dishes inside a single hour will probably need more than a single rolling dish rack or cart
Ensure the Quality of Your Industrial Dish Cart Before You Purchase
Most dish cart models out in the market nowadays are constructed of heavy-duty plastic. Don't underestimate this kind of material: heavy-duty plastic are designed to withstand the rigors of a busy restaurant kitchen. An industrial dish cart is typically made of industrial-strength polymer, so they are guaranteed to take a beating from heavy use inside a commercial kitchen and still keep on working. In addition, most dish storage cart models are made of durable plastic that is also treated with an antimicrobial agent so that they are protected from bacteria, germs, mold, and fungi. This guarantees that your restaurant's dishes are safe and sanitary, which is good news for your customers and patrons.
It is important, however, to make sure that your dish cart is made of only the best-quality materials. You can make sure of this by purchasing your industrial dish cart from reputable retailers and wholesalers and choosing only the best brands available in the market.
What Is a Dish Rack Dolly?
A dish rack dolly or dish caddy a short, usually four-wheeled truck used to lug around stacks of standard-size racks. Food-service establishments like restaurants that store dishes and mugs/glasses in their respective racks are able to conveniently move from one place to another with the help of a dish dolly. Each dish caddy is usually mounted on four swivel casters.
These casters usually have slip-resistant treads to make it safer for any kitchen staff to navigate through wet and slippery kitchen floors. Generally, dish racks are stacked high enough on the dish caddies that food-service staff will navigate and control the caddy by gripping the dish racks themselves. However, this can be potentially dangerous, but this method of navigating a dish dolly can be avoided by using dollies that feature handles.
