Discover how a dishwasher could benefit your household.

The dishwasher is an integral part of today’s kitchen. The appliance is especially important for multi-member households, who cycle through dishes like a well-oiled machine. A dishwasher can ease the strain of handwashing while conserving valuable drinking water. Discover how a dishwasher could benefit your household.

Save Time

A dishwasher saves you valuable time once dinner is over. Rather than hand washing a never-ending pile of pots and pans, the user can simply place them in the appliance and press “start.” The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that a dishwasher can save you more than 230 hours of personal time every year.

Clean Effectively  

While hand washing relies on physical scrubbing to clean dishes, dishwashers use hot water to sanitize plates, pots, and utensils. Dishwashers heat water to 150 degrees, in order to effectively clean grease and grime. Even while wearing yellow gloves, most people can’t physically handle cleaning dishes at such a high temperature.

Conserve Energy

Did you know that using a dishwasher reduces the amount of water and electricity you use each year? The Department of Energy estimates that an up-to-date Energy Star dishwasher can save up to $40 a year in utility bills. Energy Star certified appliances also use up to 5,000 fewer gallons of water per year, saving the environment and reducing your water bill.
