The poladèr was used to wash the dishes. It is located in a hole in the wall of the kitchen and consists of a stone lowered and tilted outwards with a small gutter that drains water to the kneader. This dirty water was collected and often used for the pigs. The water collected in the kneader was cooked in large pots with other foods.

This poladèr was an exception from the rest of Aranese poladèrs, which discharged the water outside.
