The Cutlery Polisher, or cutlery dryer polisher as they are also known is now becoming an important time saving piece of equipment for the busy kitchen, or back of house.

Cutlery is placed in, straight from the dishwasher (or from a bucket of water).

The cutlery travels through the polisher via a stainless steel chute that is filled with polishing granulate and this dries, polishers and sterilises your steel and silverware in a matter of minutes.

By using this fully automatic method of drying and polishing you are eliminating the lengthy chore of polishing each piece by hand and allowing your kitchen and wait staff to move onto other chores sooner.

Cutlery Polisher – Savings/Benefits

You will be surprised how much time and money you’re wasting on skilled staff standing around polishing your cutlery.

Our Cutlery Polishing units are designed for restaurants, kitchens, cafes and coffee shops with two clear intentions; unbeatable quality and cost saving.

It’s pretty easy for staff to get bored hand polishing cutlery, very often not doing  the job very well, leaving marks, streaks and wasting even more staff time fetching fresh cutlery when the guest complains!

Cutlery Polishers never get tired.
They just keep on going as long as you need them to, hitting an incredibly high quality level of perfect polishes without ever missing a spot or only doing half the job; and even better, they don’t leave damp dirty towels lying around after they’ve finished.

Hygiene benefit is that our dryer polishers sanitize at high temperature above 80 degrees C; the same temperatures used to sanitize in your dishwasher, This ensures that both the cutlery and granules meet sanitizing codes, whilst human hands and dirty polishing cloths can add bacteria, our higher temperatures makes sure that when the cutlery or items leaves the polisher, it’s virtually sterile!

Cost saving
Cutlery polishers are fast, and after the initial purchase are economical to run, saving you money in time and labour

Stop buying and disposing of all that polishing cloth.                                                                                          
Our polishing granules last longer, are far more hygienic and do a better job!

Stop wasting wages on waiting staff polishing spoons!
Larger restaurants may even be able to reduce the number of staff they need

Cut down on your cutlery stock!
Our units process cutlery fast so it’s back out on the tables in no time.

How It Works                                                        

Warewashing Solutions Cutlery Polishers deliver consistent, top quality polish and shine every time.

What’s more it’s simple to use and removes all of those damp and unhygienic towels and polishing cloths from your environment entirely.

Take your clean and wet cutlery straight from the dishwasher and place it into the patented circular tank, which is made to allow cutlery to virtually swim up and out of the machine.  A safe exit is designed to protect your cutlery from scratching.

The machine draws the cutlery through the heated dry grain granules, this removes out all the moisture, whilst gently rubbing off water marks and polishing silver or steel to incredibly high quality sheen.

The temperature and or UV lamp creates a  sanitizing stage on both cutlery and granules, killing bacteria. The cutlery travels with the vibrating granules to the top and passes out, maximizing time and temperature for hygiene and delivering the perfect knives, forks and spoons to your diners.

As you can see, it takes just a few seconds to place the cutlery in the machine. How long does it take your staff to hand polish it?
