In an innovative move to improve food hygiene and safety, the governor of Bangkok has launched a scheme to offer street vendors cheap access to mobile dishwashers. The dishwasher resembles a food cart and is fitted out with two gas-fired boiling bowls. Metal baskets suspended in the bowls can carry up to 50 plates and other crockery and cutlery. It takes just ten seconds to clean one load of dishes, reports the Straits Times.
