Soak Sinks: Mobile And Functional Commercial Kitchen Sinks
A soak sink is a mobile compartment primarily used for soaking dirty dishes before loading them into a dishwasher or washing them manually in a 3-compartment sink. Removing the dried food residue and grease on kitchenware or cutlery improves the efficiency and speed of the actual rinsing process. Plus, as a mobile soaking sink does not require a faucet installation, it can be used as an additional utility sink wherever needed.
Standard Features Of Soak Sinks
Soaking sinks are made of stainless steel to resist corrosion and heavy use. The grade and gauge of stainless steel used in the construction may vary from model to model. Type 304 stainless steel is renowned for its remarkable durability.
Mobile Soak sinks stand on galvanized steel legs firmly dripped to one another with bracing on three or four sides. The four swivel casters, two with locks, allow you to easily maneuver the sink around the kitchen and fix it when necessary. This portability is particularly valuable for kitchens with limited space. Besides, if you are running a catering business, a mobile soaking sink will be a perfect tool, facilitating the cleanup process after an outdoor event.
A low-height mobile soak sink that easily fits under the counter implies increased washing capacity with almost no footprint. However, mobility may increase the likelihood of accidents. The rounded rims on all sides protect against crashes. Finally, with a lever handle attached to the drain, you can effortlessly empty the sink after each use.
Using A Soak Sink To Ease The Washing Operation
To ease your washing process, before loading the dishes into your dishwasher or the first compartment of your triple sink, you can put your mobile soak sink with warm, preferably soapy water next to your dishwasher or 3-compartment sink, and dip your dirty utensils into the sink.
You may be tight on space, but you cannot sacrifice sanitation. Alternatively, you can place a pre-rinse sink basket or a sink strainer basket into the sink. You may also want to check the 3 compartment sink and corner 3 compartment sink.
