You get overexcited, when you cook for your family or for house party. However, what kills your excitement is cleaning those huge utensils that were left on the table. It takes few minutes to consume the yummy food but takes hours to clean those utensils. Moreover, dishwashing liquids are harsh chemicals that are rough on hands. For all this reason, dishwasher was invented.
It was in 1929, that an electric lave-vaisselles was invented. Now with time, various companies have various options to offer. In US, more than 75 percent homes have dishwasher. Initially, dishwasher was sold as a standalone product but, with time manufacturers started selling dishwashers with standard size and height, which could be fixed under a countertop or in modular kitchen. This helped in saving that extra space which was captured by dishwasher.
Here are few things that will help you in buying a dishwasher –
- Decide whether you would like a quiet or convenient dishwasher because if you buy a machine that has filter traps they will not make noise but will have to be cleaned manually. If you buy a machine that grinds disposal waste automatically it will make noise while doing so but, doesn’t require maintenance and extra cleaning every time.
- You should know that the tub plays a vital role in a dishwasher because plastic might absorb smell and stain but, needs to be cleaned with vinegar in intervals, but stainless steel tub requires little maintenance and can sustain heat which is good for sanitization.
- Although the standard cycle of a dishwashing machine is 2 to 4 cycles but, with advance technology, companies are adding more features to their machine so they look different. They have half rinse, which will either clean top or bottom shelf, sanitize option that sanitize utensils especially baby bottles, quick wash when you’re in hurry and delayed wash when you want it to start after sometime.
- Most importantly, in a family of four you can’t have a machine that provides space for two people’s utensils. This will not only consume time but also waste dishwashing liquid and water.
Budget should be your priority when you select your model. There might be various features that can attract you but you need to understand your basic necessity and select the right one. Regular maintenance of these machines is important to keep them running in good condition. If you clean it regularly with warm water and vinegar it can save you lot of money in repairing.
