The Ownwell® method is proven to facilitate and make the everyday life of professionals more efficient. The installation of the equipment, familiarisation in the method and its introduction are extremely easy to implement!

Professionals’ opinions – Testimonials

From the perspective of wellbeing and health, the kitchen is certainly one of the most important areas to clean. The surfaces are used to prepare food and raw ingredients, so they must be free of any harmful bacteria. The chefs at Restaurant Henricus initially doubted the functionality of the Ownwell® method, but after a short period of use they were showered with praises and the method was introduced.

The method is based on a Finnish innovation for which there is a patent pending. In the method, mains water is purified and optimised to be suitable for cleaning purposes. Safe cleaning capsules are added to the purified water. The capsules contain probiotics, which break down debris with the help of enzymes and reduce disease-causing bacteria.
