PLASTIC CUP & BOWL WASHING SYSTEM
WASHING REUSABLE PLASTIC CUPS & BOWLS
Reusable plastic cups and bowls washed clean. In less than two minutes.
Takeaway coffee, Chai Latte on the way to work, or Asian rice dishes to go – operators of gastronomic establishments frequently use reusable plastic cups and bowls for their “to-go” business. More and more consumers are acting sustainably, focusing on waste reduction and responsible consumption. Starting in 2023, legislation requires caterers to offer reusable alternatives for “to-go” beverages and take-away meals. Reusable systems are becoming increasingly central in addressing this new challenge. However, they can only work if washing doesn't become an issue, meaning absolute cleanliness and hygiene are guaranteed when washing plastic cups and bowls.
REUSABLE PLASTIC CUP WASHING PROBLEMS
The plastic material makes washing reusable plastic cups a real challenge.
The conventional machine programs, racks, detergent and rinse aid are no real solution: when washing, the light cups quickly tip over and fill up with wash water – meaning that they have to be emptied and washed again. And the low thermal conductivity of plastic leaves the cups dripping wet after the wash cycle, so they must be dried by hand. Winterhalter has now solved this problem and developed a professional solution: the reusable plastic cup washing system.

The reusable plastic cups easily tip over, fill with wash water and dry poorly.

Each individual component makes an important contribution to reusables warewashing. Together they ensure perfect washing and drying results.
INSERTS FOR CUPS AND LIDS
Do you want to wash just a few cups? Or just a few lids? No problem: individual rack inserts transform the Winterhalter reusable plastic cup washing system into a flexible and completely tailor-made solution.
Challenges in washing bowls
Washing plastic bowls can also be quite challenging. Due to the low thermal conductivity of plastic, bowls remain dripping wet after washing, requiring manual drying. If cleaned bowls aren't immediately sold, they need to be stored. Residual moisture in the grooves and indentations of the bowls can promote mold growth. Since food from bowls is often not consumed immediately and may even be reheated, bowls must be cleaned and stored with particular attention to hygiene.
The solution for bowl washing
Winterhalter offers a tailored system solution for these challenges in bowl washing: machine settings, basket, and washing chemicals. This combination ensures hygienic cleanliness, allowing water to drain quickly and reliably from the bowls.
