What is a bucket washer?

A bucket washer is an automated stainless-steel washing and sanitizing system designed to wash buckets, pails, lids, and utensils to a food-grade standard. Bucket washers use high-velocity stainless-steel V jets and hot water to remove debris and bacteria from wares in an industrial setting.

Why get a bucket washer?

Bucket washers are used across industries to clean a high volume of wares to food-efficiency standards at maximum speed. These sanitation machines clean eight times faster than handwashing and are less labor-intensive. This means that in today’s age of labor shortages and rising costs, rather than wasting time on the menial task of hand washing, your workforce can dedicate time to other, more complex tasks that add value to your business because washing will be done at the push of a button.

Bucket washers also increase the output of clean wares, which speeds up your whole production and minimizes downtime. You won’t be waiting on buckets, pails, sheet pans, or containers ever again. Automated washers also eliminate human error, meaning that wares will always be cleaned to food-grade sanitation standards, minimizing the risk of contaminants and bacteria that could render entire batches unusable.

Automated washing and sanitizing systems like bucket washers also conserve resources like water and energy, thus saving money in the long term.
