Question and answer
Q: Why is the required water temperature higher when sanitizing dishes in a high-temperature dishwashing machine than when sanitizing dishes manually?
A: When using heat, a warewashing machine must be capable of a hot water rinse of 180?F (although not higher than 194?F, which will ?cook on? food to the surface). [ When inspecting a dishwasher, the inspector will most likely be checking the ?plate temperature of the dishwasher.? If the dishwasher is rinsing properly at 180?F, then final plate temperature upon completion of the cycle should be at
160?F or above. Disinfecting and Sterilizing are methods used to reduce pathogens at much higher levels. They are accomplished by applying much higher heat or higher chemical concentrations or just stronger chemicals in general. ]
