CMA’s 181-VL High Temperature Undercounter Dishmachine

Finding a temperature balance for a bartender’s dish machine usually has its tradeoffs. A dishmachine with too low of a temperature doesn’t reliably rinse away cosmetics, leaving glass with a stain that casts a doubt how clean the glass actually is. And while effective at cleaning, high-temperature dishmachines create too much water vapor and steam for front-of-the-house applications.

The solution? CMA’s 181-VL undercounter dishmachine! It is uses a single rack, and is front loading with a heat recovery system that reduces water vapor for bar applications. No more fogged up glassware, bottles and mirrors…and no more lipstick stains!

The 181-VL is Energy Star Approved for reduced energy costs. It uses only a cold water supply, but has an on board Safe-T-Temp booster heater for a consistent 180° final rinse. It has a three-minute cycle and can wash 600 glasses per hour. With a raised door for easy unloading, and an automatic fill function, it couldn’t be simpler for employees to operate.

Other features include the Soft Start. This feature gently ramps-up the water pressure at the beginning of each cycle so that delicate stemware and glasses aren’t knocked over or broken by an initial blast of wash water. This feature also reduces noise.

The 181-VL is also built to last! With 304 stainless steel construction, a 1.0 HP corrosion resistant pump, and stainless steel upper and lower wash arm. Cleaning the 181-VL is also easy, as it has a removable stainless steel pump protection screen.
