Q. Should we use a rinsing agent, like Jet Dry, in our commercial kitchen dishwasher?

A. Rinse agents leave an oily film on tableware. Do the squeak test: when you take a plate out of the dishwasher is it squeaky clean? If it feels slippery, a rinse aid was used.

If it is a wine glass where squeaky clean, residue free surfaces are very important, then perhaps a rinse aid is not the best idea.

A. You’re only completing the first step in cleaning and this is not meeting local health department code. Your owner’s manual will specify which parts need removal when cleaning. Note that it’s important to take care not to damage scraper blades when cleaning and also replace blades, o rings and rear seals when necessary.
