I'm opening a small restaurant at the end of August and am finalizing orders for all the appliances in the kitchen.
I've heard mixed things about how to acquire dishwashers -- it seems smarter to pay outright for a dishwasher as a long term investment. I've heard though that they tend to breakdown often and that you'll end up paying a lot on service repairs. Whereas leasing from Ecolabs is expensive per month, but it comes included with free and prompt repair.
I would rather just purchase a dishwash outright but can't tell if this is a mistake. For the record, I'm looking for a single, very simply undercounter dishwasher (one that can do a full load at high-temp in ~3 mins). Anyone have experience with this issue and care to weigh in?
