WHAT IS A DISHWASHER?

A dishwasher is a machine for cleaning dishware and cutlery automatically. Unlike manual dishwashing, which relies largely on physical scrubbing to remove soiling, the mechanical dishwasher cleans by spraying hot water, typically between 45 and 75 °C, at the dishes, with lower temperatures used for delicate items.

A dishwasher is a robot that cleans and rinses dirty dishes. Humans have to load the dishes, add detergent, set the proper washing cycles, and turn it on, but the dishwasher accomplishes a whole series of functions by itself.

DISHWASHERS BUYER’S GUIDE

User Friendly

It is a very new concept in India and therefore it should be very user-friendly with easy steps and a manual guide. It should also come with some free demo when initially installed just the case of an automatic washing machine or an oven that you are not accustomed to the operations.

Budget-Friendly

The appliance should be affordable and budget-friendly so that the market can accept it easily just like purchasing an air conditioner or a washing machine. The dishwasher is a new concept and it’s important to decide a budget before you make the decision. The dishwasher usually ranges from around 30k to 55k.

Power Consumption

Resources being limited the appliance should come with an auto on/off button to save power. The consumption should be minimized to reduce the total costing required to use the dishwasher. The less power consumption the more efficient is the appliance.

Efficiency

The dishwasher should be efficient and should complete the cleaning fast as well as efficient. All the dishes kept inside the washer should be properly cleaned and they should be insured of after-sales services. This will help in case of any manufacturing defects.

Performance

Dishwashers are more hygienic than washing-up by hand. The dishwasher’s high-wash temperatures – hotter than your hands can bear – and efficiency of dishwasher detergents play an important role in the results you’ll see.

However, they may work wonders but they aren’t miracle machines and won’t cope with burnt or dried-on leftovers. To make the most of your dishwasher, scrape plates clean before stacking them and use the rinsing program if you don’t want to run a full wash for some time.

Make sure that spray arms can swing freely and aren’t impeded by tall or bulky dishes. From time to time, the spray arm may become clogged so the dishwasher won’t operate properly.

To avoid a build-up of scale that can damage the machine, renew the salt for the water softener when the warning light shows that the level is low. Clean the filter after every use and wipe the door seal after every load or it may perish and leak.

Programs

Most dishwashers offer a range of programs for optimum cleaning efficiency. There will usually be at least 3 programs, with the main one being at 65°/149°F, an economy program for normal washes, and a light or dedicates program.

Additional programs vary slightly depending on the machine and might include a glasses-only program, or a half-load option, and some machines offer a rinse and hold function for very heavy soiling.

Sophisticated machines often have sensor features designed to adapt the program to the load in the machine, to reduce or increase the amount of water or rinses needed depending on how dirty the dishes are.

Too many options can be bewildering, so look for features that make using the machine easier, and bear in mind that special programs such as the ‘delicates’ are only worth paying extra for it you will use them regularly.

Flexible racks and baskets

Basic models offer less in the way of gadgets, but the best machines, across all budgets, have adjustable or removable lower baskets and a height-adjustable upper basket to help you make the most of mixed loads.

Each brand has its way of moving the baskets. Some use a clip system to alter the height of the top basket, on others you’ll need to remove the whole basket to change the height setting. Other models have tilting upper baskets to help use up every bit of space.

Hidden controls

Many freestanding models now have hidden top-edge controls if you’re looking for a sleeker look for your kitchen, but don’t want an integrated machine.

Pre-rinse

Useful for rinsing plates before washing a full load.

Drying cycle

Full-sized dishwashers usually have a drying cycle. There are two different methods used:

Hot air drying (element) Most effective drying method but uses slightly more electricity. An element heats the air to dry items in the dishwasher.

Residual heat (hot rinse) Uses the residual heat from the final rinse to dry the load.
