Jackson Place Cohousing is a community where getting cleaners to commit to meals and follow through is generally working well. Two cleaners sign up for each meal. Cleanup after meals basically involves washing and putting away dishes and silverware, pots, silverware trays, napkin baskets, salt & pepper shakers and water pitchers, washing kitchen counters, sinks, wiping down dining room tables, basic dining room floor sweeping and spot cleaning, placing trash and recyclables in appropriate receptacles, etc. Cleanup can take at least one hour and sometimes two hours, depending on the size of the crowd of eaters and the variety of the dishes provided. Dishwasher: We have an American dishwasher which looks a lot like a Hobart or other standard unit. It's a pass-through, professional/restaurant corner unit. We got it used/reconditioned. It works great--it's fast and it is worth the space, we think. Because our project is in an older neighborhood where the voltage provided in the electrical power lines is not high enough for some modern equipment, and because of the city requirements around that, we have the kind of dishwasher that can't provide extremely hot water and so has to use chemicals to sterilize the dishes, etc. If you can get a higher voltage in the kitchen than we were able to get, and not have to be licensed as a restaurant to have one, it is good to get a dishwasher that sterilizes from the high temperature of the water.
