5 children, Apple’s iPhones account for 12% of global smartphone shipments, one of master chef Thomas Keller’s 12 US restaurants and bakeries voted to give their most prestigious company honor the Core Award to a dishwasher: Jaimie Portillo who says he has never missed a day of work in seven yearsThe median annual wage for the 500000 or so dishwashers in the United States is about $20000 up only $4000 or so from just over a decade ago But a few restaurants including the French Laundry give cleaners the stature of sous-chefs and extend titles that capture the broad range of responsibilities "We don’t call them dishwashers but porters" says Keller who got his start washing dishes in his mother’s restaurant the late Bay & Surf in Laurel Md "We give them the same respect we give anyone else in the restaurant" Indeed the only difference between the embroidered uniforms worn by his chefs and his porters are the latter’s short sleevesWhen I start my shift at Caracol an upscale Mexican seafood restaurant in Houston Keller’s words are echoing in my head: "Everyone in the restaurant depends on you" he told me "If there are no glasses drinks don’t get served If there is no silverware tables can’t get set If there are no pots or pans food doesn’t get cooked"Yes chef"The main concern for dishwashers is not to get injured by hot pans broken glass or sharp knives" Caracol owner Hugo Ortega tells me before my seven-hour shift Caracol is the largest of his five restaurants one of which includes Backstreet Cafe where the recent James Beard Award winner got his start in the business in 1987 – as a dishwasher and a Mexican immigrant speaking no EnglishOrtega’s imagery suggests a war zone especially for a volunteer recruit with some notable handicaps including inexperience with pots the size of planters and the layout of a 3300-square-foot kitchen In my favor it’s the evening after the Fourth of July when Caracol has just 77 reservations on the books Instead of the usual four dishwashers there will be three including meCaracol has welcomed me with a black shirt vented cap industrial-strength plastic apron and a plastic container of water labeled with my name For tonight I’m "Tomas"My minders – dishwashers Esteban Soc 30 and Joselino Aguilar 19 both from Guatemala – are wearing black trash bags with holes torn out for their heads over their black shirts For their efforts here the dishwashers earn $10 an hour an invitation to join the staff for family meal health insurance and a week’s paid vacation after a year of service The presence of an interpreter (to help with my interviews) reminds me how lonely their job must sometimes beSteps away from the dining room’s oyster bar the dishwashing station is fronted with trash cans into which servers empty uneaten food and lined with an L-shaped stainless-steel counter On one side waiters put like dishes together and on the other side cooks deposit dirty equipment At the start of the shift the counter closest to the kitchen is already littered with utensils from the prep cooks and dishes from late lunchers and early happy-hour customersAt Caracol the dishwashers take turns rinsing sorting and moving dishes through the conveyor-type machine and taking them out sorting them on a steel table and delivering them to stations where other staff members dry the silver and stemware I watch Soc and Aguilar for a while before asking to relieve first one then the otherBy far the messiest chore is the front end of the businessA cutting board with an orange stain sends everyone around me into crying jags when I spray it down Note to self: Hot water on habanero oil creates tear gas Also unlike at home the five-second rule does not apply So when I drop a mixing bowl snatch it up and show it to one of my mentors he nods in the direction of the dishwasher rather than the sorting tableI push a full rack into the dishwashing machine where it gets blasted with 160-degree water and a solution of detergent and a drying agent emerging 30 seconds later Well most of the time When I send a large cutting board into the washer sans rack it brings the machine to a halt and forces my teammates to open a metal door in the center to remove the obstacleA little mindless the repetition can be a lot frantic Remember the "I Love Lucy" episode where Lucy and Ethel fail to keep up with a conveyor belt of chocolates in need of wrapping That was me only with plates and pans instead of candyTaking a cue from Soc who whistles to pass the time I stop rinsing individual plates and arrange them in racks before dousing them with water saving valuable time – and collecting less of Caracol’s menu on myself My teammates smile their approval"You’re hired" jokes AguilarShow me a chef who sings the praises of dishwashers and chances are he or she has spent time "diving for pearls" That’s how restaurant consultant Paul Sorgule describes searching for dishes beneath soap bubbles"If you want to be a chef you need to wash dishes" first says Sorgule former vice president of the New England Culinary Institute "If you don’t know where things go or how a kitchen functions – who does what and where – you have no business" As the executive chef of the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in Lake Placid NY, and the company has finally revealed that its upcoming mobile software will be called
