Need convincing? Here's our top 5 reasons why you should use a dishwasher
Let me say right of the bat – dishwashers are not a luxury item. Although this amazing appliance was first patented way back in 1886 by Josephine Cochrane of Shelbyvillle, Illinois, the past 120 years has seen manufacturers around the world finding ways to improve them. So why the demand? Well that’s an easy question to answer – no-one likes washing up, especially the kids!
#1 - Save time & effort
Dishes pile up daily so why not let an appliance take care of the job? Dishwashers are quick and easy to load and unload - even the kids can do it. A dishwasher could easily save you 30 minutes a day, that’s 3½ hours a week you can spend doing something you really like.
#2 - Water & energy savings
Dishwashers save water
As a test at home fill your sink with 12 litres of water. This small amount of water is what many dishwashers use to run a complete load. Washing up by hand means you’re probably using more water than a dishwasher would. Being a cold water connection the dishwasher heats the water to the precise temperature to run the wash and only heats the water needed.
#3 - Cleaner dishes
Dishes not only wash and clean better in a dishwasher it’s also more hygienic. This is because the dishwasher heats the water to temperatures beyond what your hands could cope with in the sink. Combine this with the anti-bacterial properties of your powder and rinse aid and your dishes come out clean and dry every time. No more smelly washing up sponges or damp tea towels!

#4 - A clean looking kitchen
Dishes out of sight
The last thing you want to come home to is a sink / bench full of dirty dishes. It’s depressing to look at, they can smell, attract creepy crawlies and once all the food spills have dried on they’re harder to clean! A dishwasher lets you stack the dishes out of sight as you use them and when they’re clean you stack them back in the cupboard – just like magic!
#5 - Family time
Spend time cooking not cleaning!
Food is such an enjoyable part of our daily lives. Whether it’s the family meal or a big night of entertaining - the last thing you want is to be stuck in the kitchen cleaning up while everyone else is having a great time. So don’t argue about whose turn it is to wash-up, enjoy your time with friends and family and let your dishwasher do the dirty work!
