Almost every family has a refrigerator, washing machine, stove, or even a microwave oven. Unlike them, the dishwasher is still a rare guest in our kitchens. In modern dishwashers, dishes are stacked in baskets and trays designed for different types of dishes.
Typically, large pots and pans are placed down, and plates, cups, glasses and cutlery are placed on top. The process of washing itself proceeds as follows: heated water with detergent under pressure is sprayed in thin streams by rotating nozzles onto the dishes, washing away dirt and grease. At the end of the washing procedure, rinse with clean water with the addition of rinse aid. Then the dishes are dried.
A dishwasher is a luxury item. An absolutely unjustified point of view. Of course, such automation is not cheap, it matches the washing machine, but no one considers the washing machine a luxury item ... Not a single housewife can do without it. There are many facts supporting the usefulness of a dishwasher.
The dishwasher does not waste your precious time. With this device, you will not spend so much time washing dishes, especially after you have had guests. All that is required of you is to load the dirty dishes into the machine, fill them with detergent, turn them on and forget (of course, after the end of the washing cycle, you can still put the dishes in their places). Not only does the machine not only make it all faster, it also keeps your hand skin smooth and healthy. After all, you do not need to immerse your hands in detergent, which is nothing more than chemistry.
The dishwasher does its job better than us. Its usefulness lies not only in the fact that it does unpleasant work for you. Most importantly, she makes her so much better! Not only is the dishes perfectly cleaned, they also dry out - you don't have to wipe down shiny glass or steel dishes, which can get ugly stains from dried water.
A dishwasher uses much less water than a hand wash. Very soon the time will come when water meters will appear - the owners of dishwashers will benefit, because they will spend some 15 liters of water on washing dishes per day - instead of hundreds of liters during manual washing. Although energy consumption does not play such a role in Russian conditions as in Europe, it is nevertheless nice to know that no more than 1.5 kilowatts of electricity is spent on the entire dishwashing procedure.
We'll have to buy some more dishes. Perhaps the most "popular utensils" (plates, cups, spoons ...) will have to buy more in order to start the sink less often. Many people try not to start a lot of dishes so that there is no temptation to put dirty dishes in the sink - with the purchase of a dishwasher, such ideas will become a thing of the past. You can collect dishes in the machine without fear that it will dry out. After all, the function of soaking dishes is available in almost all models, regardless of the price category.
It is best to connect the dishwasher to cold water. Modern machines are connected to both cold and hot water. But the best option is to connect it to cold water. This is due to the fact that cold tap water is usually cleaner than hot water. Although there is a disadvantage of such a connection - the machine will consume more electricity, since the water will need to be heated before being fed to the sink. Another important factor is the periodic shutdown of hot water. After connecting the machine to hot water, when the water is turned off, you will have to wash the dishes by hand, with cold water.
The more compact the better. It all depends on the individual operating conditions. Manufacturers offer a choice of different dishwashers options - solo or built-in, full-size or compact. When choosing a dishwasher, it should be borne in mind that a family of 3-5 people gathers a lot of dishes per day, plus pans and pots ... So you can choose a full-size machine with a certain amount of capacity, so that it would be enough to turn it on once in a day.
Installation and connection can be done by yourself. If you have skillful hands and a bright head, then plug it in, there is nothing complicated there. Like the washing machine, the dishwasher is connected to the water supply and sewage system. If you are afraid of problems with leaks and flooded neighbors, it is better to entrust this work to professionals, especially if some manipulation with the electrical wiring is required when installing the machine.
Any dish can be washed in the machine. The machine is capable of washing almost any kitchen utensils, glass, plastic, porcelain, etc. It is not recommended to use it only for washing products made of wood, bone, tin, copper, brass, mother-of-pearl and silver.
A variety of pre-installed programs will satisfy all your requirements. There are all kinds of dishes, and you have to wash them in different ways. Rinsing glasses after drinking champagne is one thing, but removing frozen fat and sauce from tobacco chicken plates is quite another. And here functions like "Daily", "Very dirty", "Soaking", "Economy mode" come to the rescue. A good dishwasher for each case selects its own processing mode (temperature of the solution, duration of washing and rinsing, etc.).
