Pot and pan washers are useful in kitchens dealing with lots of starchy, thick, caked-on foods -- and in kitchens where there are a lot of pots and pans that won't fit into the existing dishwashing machine.  As your cafe serves baked goods, the use of an independent pot and washer (which blasts high pressure water) will make cleaning pots and pans easier and faster.  The question of usefulness is really one of cost and existing capacity.  If your current dishwasher is able to handle your pots and pans effectively, and its capacity is sufficient, then there is not much added benefit to investing in an independent pot and pan washer.  On the other hand, if your current dishwashing machine cannot fit certain pots and pans, or if it cannot clean certain foods off your pots and pans effectively (starchy foods in particular), then you'll need to weigh the additional cost against the benefits.  Of course, in the meanwhile, you can have an employee manually wash the pots and pans, though that additional labor cost and inefficiency may be more costly in the long run than simply investing in a dedicated pot and pan washing machine.
