Blakeslee invented the first commercial dishwashers and we continue to lead the industry with door-type dish machine designs that are more durable, energy and water efficient, easier to use and just more productive—by design!



Blakeslee means Durability

Blakeslee dishwashers are designed and manufactured to the highest performance and reliability standards, with the best materials available, by skilled craftsmen proud of our heritage of innovation and quality! Only Blakeslee Door-Type Dishwashers feature:

  • Two heavy-duty springs that counter balance the door on D-8 models. Four are used on the Double D-8 model.
  • Our own stainless steel high pressure and high volume wash pump
  • An all stainless steel tank and hood
  • Our stainless steel welded frame and oversize legs provide tank stability and extra strength.
  • Two heavy-duty lift-out scrap screens are mounted over the tank.
  • We keep it simple with an easy-to-remove manual drain valve.

Blakeslee means Efficiency

Blakeslee door-type dishwashers are designed to be energy and water efficient.

  • The Double D-8 model can be ordered with a single tank switch for washing a single rack.
  • When steam is available, steam injection or steam coil heated tanks can be specified to reduce water-heating costs.
  • The D-8 can be specified for chemical sanitizing and used as a low temperature machine.

Blakeslee means Performance

Blakeslee door-type dishwashers outperform competitive models, with:

  • A NEW Cycle Time Selector that allows you to match wash time to soil conditions.
  • Separate, precision-engineered wash and rinse spray arms that ensure thorough cleaning & sanitation.
  • Auto-Fill, automatic liquid level control and door cycle switch or manual push-button START are now standard.
  • Spring assisted door makes loading and unloading fast and easy.

Blakeslee means Ease of Use

Safety and better working conditions are key to employee efficiency and reducing staff turnover. Blakeslee Door-Type Dishwashers are easier to load, unload, clean and maintain with:

  • Dual-spring counterbalanced lift-up door is easy to open and close.
  • Four-sided lift-up door vents steam to the rear of unit, away from the operator.
  • Lower wash and rinse spray arms and upper wash arms are easy to remove for cleaning.
  • A safety cut-off switch stops the wash or rinse cycle when the door is opened.
  • Integrated temperature gauge and control panel are flush-mounted, just below the door front.
