Are you looking to replace a broken dishwasher or in the market searching for an upgrade? Dishwasher technology has made great strides over the last decades. Modern dishwashers combine effective cleaning with features that allow you to reduce energy and water consumption, while simultaneously improving performance. Here are some of the updates to look out for when you decide to upgrade your dishwasher.
The steam pre-wash option has revolutionized dishwashing. It loosens the stuck food particles on your dishes by harnessing the steam’s cleaning ability in the washing phase. By selecting the pre-wash part of the cycle, water circulates through the spray arms until the dishes are wet. The water then stops, and the heating element at the bottom of the tub automatically turns on. The wet glassware and dishware drip on the hot element creating steam inside the dishwasher.
With climate change on the rise, we seriously need to consider how each of us can do our bit to reduce our water consumption. There are eco-friendly models that are currently available on the market which can save, on average, 3,870 gallons of water over their lifetime.
Separate Wash Zones
Dishwasher wash zones give you options of washing the upper rack or the lower rack separately. You no longer need to wait to get a full dishwasher load to run a cycle. Others adjust the cycle’s time and water use to the load’s soil level, improving water consumption.
