Miele gained U.S. NSF/ANSI 3 approval for its G 7859 commercial fresh-water dishwasher. The unit uses fresh water for every cycle, unlike most commercial tank dishwashers that reuse water from previous cycles. The G 7859 is engineered to provide dual-level cleaning and it reaches 185°F for 1 minute during the rinse to provide the sanitation needed to meet NSF standards without caustic chemicals. Despite using fresh water for every cycle, it is designed to consume little water overall—6.6 gal per cycle. The unit can be equipped with interchangeable accessories for dishwashing in applications such as day cares, B&B’s, small restaurants, retirement homes, churches, wineries, etc. It has a 17-minute cycle that includes the sanitizing final rinse, making use of a commercial-grade heating element to heat water fast. A strong circulation pump circulates water at 106 gal/minute for enhanced cleaning. The unit is engineered to last 15,000 operating hours, which the producer equates to 13 years or more life expectancy when used six hours a day, six days a week. The unit produces 65 dB freestanding; 61 dB when installed undercounter. It is designed to have a small footprint of 24 in., allowing it to fit into a residential dishwasher space.
