4 Equipment Sanitation Tips
We all use a plethora of bakery equipment to speed up and enhance the dough production process. From professional industrial dough mixers, to bread moulders, to dividers, these machines make production faster, easier, and effortless to scale.
However, these machines do require upkeep, and it is important to take care of them and to clean them daily..
- Take the time to disassemble and thoroughly clean all surfaces which come in contact with dough after each shift.
- Perform a deep clean at least once a month to take care of any crevices that might get neglected.
- Read the manual to make certain you are completely disassembling all parts of the machine, and you are using the correct cleaning products.
- Stock spare parts that undergo significant wear and tear. Damaged or worn machinery can have uneven surfaces that allow microbes and crumbs to settle into the crannies.
By following a disciplined sanitation schedule, you will ensure nothing gets left behind, and that you’ll craft a safe, consistent, and delicious final product.
