  • Manual pot washing in sinks > Washing in Granule Smart®

  • 2,185 liters of water/day > 741 liters of water/day



  • 66 % of water savings

  • Annual water saving of 528,000 liters of water

  • Improved working conditions for the staff and a better organisation and workflow



The hotel restaurant was washing their pots and pans in a 3-sink system, letting utensils soak for hours before they could be scrubbed clean. This was time-consuming and creating a lot of waste in water and chemicals.

With increasing costs of resources in Singapore and shortage of labour, Grand Hyatt Singapore considered if the No Pre-Washing ConceptTM from GRANULDISK could address these challenges.

The water consumption was measured before the pot and pan washer from GRANULDISK was installed in order to have a baseline for the comparison.




With an average of 150 pans and pots in the banquet kitchen, the stewards quickly took to using the Granule Smart pot and pan washer. With the new concept, water consumption was only 741 litres of water daily for pot washing. This is roughly 34% of what the water consumption was before.

The trial also proved that substantial time savings can be made by investing in a GRANULDISK solution. Savings of 80% were made or 1 352 hours yearly.

Plus additional benefits that wares are circulated back to chefs much quicker which is crucial during peak cooking periods. Last but not least, the wash result is impeccable.
