4 Reasons Why You Should Use a Dishwasher

The main thing many people dread after cooking up a storm is the aftermath — washing the stack of pots and plates lying in the sink. Not only does hand-washing your dishes take up a lot of time and effort, you also have to worry about broken plates and being in constant contact with chemicals from your dish soap. Here, we have come up with 4 reasons why it is worth investing in a dishwasher for your family.

3. Less housework

Let your dishwasher do the dirty work and get out of your kitchen fast to do things you enjoy doing. All you need to do is load it with your dirty dishes and cutleries, making your job easy and hassle-free. For house parties and family gatherings where more cutleries are used, a dishwasher can most definitely clean faster than hand-washing your dishes.

4. Saves water

Wondering how much water hand-washing a full dishwasher load would take? You will be surprised at the answer — it actually uses around 40 litres of water. This means you would save up to 33.5 litres of water per rinse cycle as compared to washing your dishes under running water, which gives you enough water for one extra bath every week!

The most resource-efficient dishwashers, like the Bosch ActiveWater Eco dishwasher, use as little as 6.5 litres per full load. Its Standard Economy 50°C wash programme multiplies the cleaning power of every drop of water by 400 times. Water from the final rinse is stored in the water storage tank and reused for the next wash during the pre-rinse cycle. This saves an additional 2.5 litres of water.
