Why is a three-compartment sink recommended over a two-compartment sink?
Many health codes and regulations mandate using a three-compartment sink for proper food safety and sanitation. This distinct sanitizing compartment (3rd) ensures that all items, including blender components, strainers, and other tools used in smoothie preparation, undergo a thorough and effective sanitation process.
The separation of washing, rinsing, and sanitizing helps prevent the transfer of contaminants, thereby upholding food safety standards and reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses.
Smoothie shops must adhere to these standards to maintain a hygienic environment and prevent health violations.
