Blakeslee invented the first commercial dishwashers and we continue to lead the industry with rack dish machine designs that are more durable, energy and water efficient, easier to use and just more productive—by design!

Blakeslee means Durability

Blakeslee dishwashers are designed and manufactured in America’s Heartland to the highest performance and reliability standards, with the best materials available, by skilled craftsmen proud of our heritage of innovation and quality! Only Blakeslee Rack-Type Dishwashers feature:

  • A patented Internal Recirculation System that eliminates external pumps, risers and plumbing.
  • Custom made self-draining stainless steel one-piece sump-manifolds, with stainless impellers.
  • One piece welded spray pipes and spray boxes that are self-cleaning, won’t clog or need replacement.
  • An all stainless steel main frame that provides tank stability and extra strength.
  • A maintenance-free all-stainless dual pawl drive designed to resist any jam, without damage.
  • Slide-out, heavy-duty sectional scrap screens that cover each tank.
  • The maintenance-free all-stainless belt drive has a built-in safe switch.
  • Slide-out, heavy-duty sectional scrap screens cover each tank.

Blakeslee means Efficiency

The Blakeslee Quick-Start Plus Consumption Saver reduces water usage and the energy used to heat wash and pre-wash water by:

  • Initially filling the Rinse Tank with both 140 and 180° F water;
  • Then pumping it into the Wash Tank at about 160° F.
  • An overflow fills the Pre-Wash Tank from the Wash Tank.
  • Makeup water is reclaimed from the Rinse Tank. Cleaning water and its energy is recycled and used in all tanks.
  • “Economizer” rack sensor system reduces rinse water usage.
  • When steam is available, steam injection or steam coil heated models can be specified to reduce water-heating costs.
  • We use a photo sensor with no moving parts to activate the final rinse and conserve water.

Blakeslee means Performance

Blakeslee rack-type dishwashers outperform competitive models, with:

  • Upper spray pipes and lower “Sani-Stream” spray boxes that deliver torrential spray volume and complete coverage, for more effective cleaning action.
  • Our Quick-Start System reduces the initial waiting time for all tanks to come up to temperature.
  • Quick-Start Plus Consumption Saver means 160° F water [not 140° F] is used in the Wash Tank, which cuts grease and improves cleaning action.

Blakeslee means Ease of Use

Safety and better working conditions is key to employee efficiency and reducing staff turnover. Blakeslee Rack-Type Dishwashers are easier to load, unload, clean and maintain.

  • Our lower 57-1/2″ overall unit height doesn’t block the view and is easier to clean.
  • 30″ wide doors provide easy access for tank cleaning.
  • Upper spray manifolds and lower spray boxes are easy to remove for cleaning.
  • Safety cut-off switches are provided on all doors.
  • The stainless steel Control Panel Enclosure is mounted at eye-level, above unit.
