Washing Dishes: That Inevitable Task After Cooking!
Tired of doing dishes by hand, or is your machine noisy or inefficient? Today's advanced dishwashers offer great features, like greater loading flexibility, a much quieter operation, and greater energy efficiency than units made only a few years ago. New dishwashers come in many different styles with tons of different wash options to choose from depending on what will work best for you and your family. Short on time and in need of extra cups and plates? The new Energy Star dishwashers can take upwards of 3 hours to run a normal cycle, so it would be best to look for a machine that offers a quick wash or 1-hour wash option. Stainless steel tubs can significantly cut down on dry time and wet spots but do come at a higher cost than plastic tub dishwashers. Here is where we can help you determine the absolute best machine for your money, based on your dishwashing needs.
If your kitchen space is at a minimum, you may want to consider a portable unit. These machines have easy rolling wheels, nicely finished exteriors, and usually feature nice butcher block tops. They are equipped with simple and quick water hookups to attach to your sink faucet. The handiest feature of these portable units is that they can be rolled right into a closet or under a stairwell, so they are right out of sight when not in use.
Saving Water and Electricity with ANY Model
Whether or not you choose to purchase a standard or highly efficient dishwasher, you can still save a great deal of energy while washing dishes by maintaining simple practices.

Here's how:

1. Always operate your dishwasher with a full load of dishes. Most of the energy used by a dishwasher goes to heating the water. Since you can’t decrease the amount of water used per cycle, fill your dishwasher to get the most from the energy used to run it.

2. Have a very small load of dishes, and you need to wash them? Fill up your machine with other things than can be safely cleaned inside: vases, cookie sheets, dusty plates from the closet, etc. Now you can get extra cleaning done at the same time.

3. Scrape off food from your dishes before putting them in the machine. Check and clean the dishwasher drain as necessary. Solid pieces of food waste can build up over the dishwasher drain and cause the dishwasher to work harder.

4. Avoid using the heat-dry, rinse-hold and pre-rinse features. Instead use your dishwasher’s air-dry option if it has one.

More Efficient than Hand Washing?
Scientists at the University of Bonn in Germany found that the dishwasher uses only half of the energy, just one sixth of the water, and much less soap than hand washing an identical set of dirty dishes. Even the most frugal and careful hand washers in the study could not beat the modern dishwasher. The study also found that dishwashers excelled in cleanliness over hand washing.

Did You Know?
Replacing a dishwasher that was made before 1994 with a new Energy Star dishwasher can save you in utility costs.
Your dishwasher can save you days and days (or even weeks!) of time over the course of a year. Add it up. Now you can have more time with your family and friends if you own an efficient machine!
