What is a dishwasher?

Instead of washing dishes by hand, simply put them in the dishwasher! Dishwashers automatically wash many dishes at once using a washing and drying cycle. Older dishwasher models simply wash and dry dishes, but newer dishwashers include a wide variety of washing programs, such a quick wash cycles, delay start, baby care, or energy saving features. Standard sizes for residential full-size dishwashers include 18 and 24 inches. Finish options may typically include white, black, or stainless steel.

What are the benefits of using a dishwasher?

Dishwashers offer many advantages over washing dishes by hand. Dishwashers save you time because instead of standing at the sink for hours after a big meal, you can just put them all in the dishwasher. When washing dishes by hand, you can’t necessarily control how much water you use, but dishwashers always use a set regulated amount. A full load of dishes in the dishwasher almost certainly uses less water than hand washing the same amount of dishes.

Dishwashers also offer a more hygienic option than hand washing because they use hot water to eliminate bacteria. While you can hand wash dishes with hot water in your sink, you can’t necessarily control the exact temperature or amount of water.

What is a portable dishwasher?

A portable dishwasher sits on wheels and can move from place to place. They use a faucet adapter to temporarily connect to the kitchen faucet. To connect the dishwasher, turn on the faucet and wait for the water to get hot. Next, turn off the faucet, attach the dishwasher hose, and plug the cord into an outlet. Their portability makes these kitchen appliances great for renting a house or condo without a built-in dishwasher. Portable dishwashers can either stand on the floor or a countertop, depending on the size of the unit.

What is a countertop dishwasher?

A countertop dishwasher, sometimes called a mini dishwasher, sits on the countertop and cleans smaller loads of dishes than a standard dishwasher. These easily portable units work well in places with a small kitchen. Some units connect to the faucet, while others use a built-in water tank for a true on-the-go experience. Countertop dishwashers also work to supplement the main dishwasher, perfect for washing a smaller load and not wasting water. If you want to wash baby care products, for example, you can put them in the delicate cycle on your countertop dishwasher.
