into your sink completely? For those of you in a commercial space/ operation.

I'm trying to plan w/ my architect, but I don't have a hobart yet...so I don't really know. I am planning on getting a dishwasher too, so does it matter? As long as it fits in the dishwasher?

Depends on the sink. My 20-qt bowl fit fine in my commercial sink, but it would never fit in the sink that's in the hotel kitchen I work at now. It fit beautifully in the dishwasher, but mine was a big $15K "high-boy" comm'l dishwasher, not an under the counter comm'l dishwasher.

I have a large two bowl commerical sink that it fits fine in...I dont think it would fit in a kitchen sink. Dont have a dishwasher! (my DH drools over those big pan washers..haha)

I just measured the bowl for my 20 qt. and it is about 15" round by 12" tall.

Wait! Debi, you're working in a hotel kitchen? Is this a student work/study?

Thank you for your help. I haven't seen the plans (first draft) yet so I didn't know how to answer either way.

I so lucked out on this one! Needed a job that is flexible around a school schedule. Found a Night Auditor job at a hotel that is less than 5 minutes from my home. I applied online on a Saturday night and they called me for the interview on Sunday .... hired me on Tuesday.

I work 11pm to 7am, 4-5 days a week, doing the end of the day audit reports. About 3:30 a.m., I start setting up our (free to our guests!) breakfast buffet line for the morning crew. I don't do any of the cooking, just set out the equipment and do some preliminary prep work for them. (it's a very small kitchen! very very!)

It's the perfect job for a full time student. Except I'm always chasing sleep. On those rare days that I have no school or work, I sleep 12-15 hours straight!

According to the food code, your sink should be able to hold the largest washable thing in your kitchen.

Yes ... as in "totally submersible" be able to hold. Good point, Mike, that I'd forgotten about!
