Zuma Dubai was the first to adopt the system of ROX Electrolyzed Water System from MGK in the UAE with the machine installed in year 2012. They have installed two units, one in the main kitchen and the other in the receiving area. ROX Water is manufactured by the Japanese company Hoshizaki and is a chemical-free electrolyzing water system; for cleaning and sanitizing food in preparation areas and kitchen contact surfaces. ROX machine works with tap water, table salt and electricity. Through the process of electrolysis, the ROX machine splits the water in two streams, one for Alkaline that is for cleaning and one for Acidic that is for sanitizing. The ROX alkaline cleaning water is a natural cleaning agent and detergent and a highly effective degreaser used to dissolve proteins, fats, biofilms and oils. While ROX acidic sanitizing water disinfects and sterilises any work surfaces on contact, as well as kitchen utensils, vegetables, raw fish, tables and hands.
