Cleaning and disinfecting with products you already have available

Vollrath Pro Staff -

Thinking outside the box to clean and disinfect with commercial foodservice products you probably already have available.

Cleanliness and hygiene are always a top priority in the food industry, but during a pandemic like we are experiencing now, it takes on a whole other meaning to be able to thoroughly clean and disinfect all areas that might harbor the virus. Here, we've provided a few common products found in commercial kitchens to get you rethinking how you might sanitize and disinfect your own space with items that you may already have.

1. LEXX Liquid Sanitizer and Cleaner Concentrate

Naturally-derived and readily biodegradable, this liquid sanitizer and cleaner concentrate mixed with water is ideal for general cleaning. The sanitizing solution is hospital-grade and can meet FDA and NSF disinfecting certifications.

2. Heavy-Duty Stockpot with Faucet

Designed for preparing and portioning stocks, soups and other liquids, this 60-quart stock pot is perfect for mixing and dispensing a cleaner concentrate into smaller dispensers. It is also a great vessel to sanitize a lot of items and safely dispense the water out of the spigot.

3. Basting Spoons

A large pot like the example provided above needs a large spoon for mixing efficiently.

4. Squeeze Dispensers

Commonly used in commercial kitchens to keep condiments, toppings, dressings and batters organized, these also work great for portioning and storing sanitizers and disinfectants.

5. Induction Ranges

Boil water for sterilizing anywhere you have 120V electricity, which is almost anywhere. The precise temperature control ensures safe and efficient heating. Some models come with a built-in timer and temp probe for added peace of mind.

6. Warmers and Rethermalizers

Keep hot water hot with impressive heating and intuitive controls that allow you to dial in the exact temperature you need. We have a large selection of sizes, styles and designs.

7. Sinks

Washing hands with soap and water is highly recommended to prevent the spread of the virus and we offer a wide range of styles and sizes, including many wall-mount options.

8. Companion Cart Portable Cleaning System

Cleaning and disinfecting potentially contaminated items can be challenging, time-consuming and ineffective, especially if they are not near a water source. This mobile cleaning cart by Stoelting, a division of The Vollrath Company, changes that by providing an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain mobile system.
