When contaminated foods make their way downstream into food processing plants and foodservice industries such as restaurants, school cafeterias, and even in the produce section of your local grocery store, hospitalizations and deaths may follow. Often it is unsafe practices that contribute to kitchen utensils and surfaces that are both unclean and not sanitized.
Cleaning utensils is a necessary step in limiting cross-contamination of food, but these same utensils must also be sanitized to further reduce the level of dangerous pathogens that can linger on surfaces. Cleaning removes the visible food and soil from utensils, but sanitizing reduces the amount of illness-producing microorganisms to a safe level.

In 3 easy steps, the Sani Station will provide clean kitchen utensils between each use, especially when the kitchen staff is conducting tasks that take them between meat, poultry and fresh produce.

- Next, the utensil is inserted is submerged in a solution and is rigorously brushed clean with the CENTER BRUSHES. Allow at least one minute for this cleaning process to be completed for best results.
