What Makes the Big Dipper AMA Different?
What makes the Big Dipper with Advance Maintenance Assistant different from the standard Big Dipper Internal Strainer (IS) models?
Both Big Dipper models capture grease and remove it using a heating element and skimming wheel. The Big Dipper IS models have an internal strainer basket that captures any small food particles that make it down the drain to be emptied by kitchen staff on a daily basis. The Big Dipper models with Advanced Maintenance Assistant capture these same small food particles and uses an impeller motor to push the particles downstream, removing the daily cleaning requirement. As a result, Advanced Maintenance Assistant models require half the daily maintenance of other Big Dipper units, they do not require handling a strainer basket which is more sanitary (and a big deal in the world today), and eliminate odors that would be experienced during the cleaning process.
