Good day,


I cannot find any good information on:

  • What stages of the dishwashing cycle to measure temperature (minimum requirements vs. ideal)
  • What temperature limits that need to be adhered to on these stages.


Thank you for your help!

I got this info off the Ontario Food Handler Training Manual.


- High Temperature Machine: High temperature machines use hot water in the rinse cycle to sanitize. The water temperature in this cycle must reach 82°C (180°F) or higher and last for at least 10 seconds.


- Low temperature machines: use chemical sanitizers in the rinse cycle to sanitize. Test strips for measuring the sanitizer in the rinse cycle must be available to make sure the machine is sanitizing properly.


Refer to pg 86-87.
