The situation before

Soaking and manual pot washing in sinks and daily consumption of 2 185 litres of water.

The hotel restaurant was washing their pots and pans in a 3-sink system, letting utensils soak for hours before they could be scrubbed clean. This was time-consuming and creating a lot of waste in water and chemicals. With increasing costs of resources in Singapore and shortage of labour, Grand Hyatt Singapore considered if the No Pre-Washing Concept from Granuldisk could address these challenges.

The water consumption was measured before the pot and pan washer from Granuldisk was installed in order to have a baseline for the comparison.


The situation after

Washing in a Granule Smart, running on average 26 wash cycles/day and using only 741 litres of water a day - a 66% water-saving in the pot wash process.

With an average of 150 pans and pots in the banquet kitchen, the stewards quickly took to using the Granule Smart pot and pan washer.

With the new concept, water consumption was only 741 litres of water daily for pot washing. This is roughly 34% of what the water consumption was before. The trial also proved that substantial time savings can be made by investing in a Granuldisk solution. Savings of 80% were made or 1,352 hours yearly.

Plus additional benefits that wares are circulated back to chefs much quicker which is crucial during peak cooking periods. Last but not least, the wash result is impeccable.


The future

After a month-long test of the Granule Smart, Grand Hyatt Singapore was convinced of the savings and benefits of Granuldisk. With several restaurants under the same roof, there are more opportunities to make further savings for the hotel.
