Is this acceptable sanitary behaviour

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Is it acceptable to re-use a tasting spoon if it is left in Quat disinfectant and wiped between uses. Everything must be tasted and during a busy service this means an enormous pile of spoons if you are using new ones every time and we don't have a whole lot already. Also, how long does the disenfectant have to be in contact with the surface to be cleaned to kill all microbials ? i read the instructions briefly and it just says different contact times are required but i didnt see how long exactly.

Wash, rinse, sanitize. Or use a new spoon each time. Re read your sanitizer directions.
Sounds pretty sketchy to me. Needs to sit in quat sanitizer a few minutes im not sure will look at my own again for sure.
Get more spoons and use a new one each time lol. It takes 2 minutes for most dishwashers to clean 200 spoons.
Keeping knives in sanitizer on line all day- just as sketch imo. Health inspectors are ok with it though.

Disinfectant baths are the bare minimum squeak by way to sanitize.

Imagine what is floating in that container 2 hours into prep (oh...you thought all those bacteria and virus and food residue just vaporize?)

Still need to scrub and run thru a dishwasher (and allow time to completely dry) to get all the dead and not so dead crap off.

Some virus are sticky and will not just "let go".
