What will be the most com­pelling rea­son to put a dish­washer in your kitchen? The sheer con­ve­nience of it? Time sav­ing? En­ergy sav­ing? (Def­i­nitely. A dish­washer uses on av­er­age 10 to 14 litres of wa­ter, whereas hand wash re­quires 30 to 40 litres. More­over, a dish­washer uses only 1–2 kW of en­ergy ev­ery wash, de­pend­ing on the cho­sen pro­gramme.) Hy­giene? (Man­ual wash is usu­ally done with cold wa­ter, while a dish­washer uses hot wa­ter to wash the dishes; this helps to kill harm­ful germs dur­ing the wash­ing cy­cle. Plus: The sponge used in man­ual wash ac­cu­mu­lates and breeds germs.) A stylish ac­ces­sory in the kitchen? A more de­pend­able al­ter­na­tive to you or the help if you have one? Pos­si­bly all of these rea­sons will play their own role. What must be noted is that it is a long-run in­vest­ment and one needs to do the home­work well to un­der­stand the fea­tures well, and as­sess the best fit for one’s life­style.
