Did you know that you can use up to 122 litres of water washing dishes by hand? An energy-efficient dishwasher on the other hand could use as few as six litres of water per wash.
How To Choose the Perfect Dishwasher
Before shopping, consider:
- * Space: Full-sized dishwashers are about 60cm wide, slimline ones are around 45cm wide and compact dishwashers can replace a drawer or sit on a kitchen countertop.
- * Freestanding and integrated: There are many options if you want a freestanding model, but if you're pitting your dishwasher inside a kitchen cabinet, integrated is what you need.
- * Capacity: Bigger may usually be better, but work out how much you need to wash - you shouldn't run your dishwasher till it is full.
- * Budget: A higher end model might cost more, but they're usually much more energy-efficient - so save money in the longer run.
Do I need to upgrade my dishwasher?
If you are finding that your current dishwasher is unable to cope with those crusty pasta bakes and day-old porridge encrusted breakfast bowls, then it may well be time to upgrade it. Dishwasher technology has come on a long way over recent years, so you may well be missing out on a load of fantastic features that can make your dish washing life easier - such as a quick wash function or the ability to control your dishwasher from your smartphone.
Dishwasher loading tips
- * Put mugs and glasses on top, and plates underneath.
- * Don’t spoons nestle. Use the cutlery basket if you have one.
- * Anything that might collect water goes upside down – that is bowls, cups, pans and ladles.
- * Put plastic on top.as the heating element is usually at the bottom.
- * Don't let glasses touch – they can crack.
