Not every home owner is fascinated by the idea of a dishwasher and I can see why. I’ve overheard customers commenting that dishwashers are a waste of money because they have no problems in doing their dishes manually. But let me tell you one thing – dishwashers can help you in more ways than one. It isn’t all about comfort and convenience, a dishwasher can do a lot more for your home.
Efficient use of dishwashers in Perth, and the greater Western Australia, can really help households conserve water. According to a 2004 report by the Western Australian Statistical Indicators, the amount of water used by dishwashers varies from the equivalent of two sinks of water per wash for newer, water efficient models to up to 50 L per wash for older models (Govt. WA 2003c). In both cases, dishwashers can conserve mains water if they are used with full loads. In October 2003, 29% of Western Australian households connected to mains had a dishwasher. Almost one quarter (23%) of households with a dishwasher did not use it in the week prior to the survey. Close to half (44%) of lone person households with a dishwasher reported not using it in the week prior to the survey, while 41% of couple with children households used their dishwasher 6 times or more.
As the head of purchasing, I spend a fair bit of time talking with customers looking for dishwashers in Perth, which – as the statistics suggest – are quite a popular item for us. From my experience, many customers are unaware of all the advantages offered by dishwashers and once I explain these to them, they are much more inclined to look at our selection.
If you’re in the same boat as those customers who think a dishwasher is a waste of money, then this article is for you! I would like to take this opportunity to list out 7 of the top benefits offered by dishwashers.
1. Much more convenient
There hasn’t been a single customer to disagree with me on the fact that dishwashers offer great convenience. By using a dishwasher, you need not stand over the sink to do the dishes – you can simply load the dishes, press a button and let the machine do the rest. The added convenience is one reason why some of our customers opt for a dishwasher.
Most customers have admitted to having broken dishes every now and then when washing them in the sink. However, should you choose to use a dishwasher, there will be less breakage thanks to better handling. Less breakage of dishes also means that there are lesser chances of getting cut by broken glasses or bowls. The safety factor does tilt some of our customers towards buying dishwashers.
3. Energy efficient
Although customers assume dishwashers to be poor in energy efficiency, modern dishwashers are quite the opposite to say the least. I’ve mentioned that dishwashers help conserve water, but they can also help cut your electricity bills. By choosing 5 star rated dishwashers, you can save up to almost $40 in utility bills every year. Not a sizeable amount, but savings nonetheless.
4. Disinfect dishes better
Like some customers, you may be happy washing dishes by hand and believe you are cleaning them well, but are they being disinfected properly. By using a dishwasher, your dishes go through multiple washing cycles with hot water at about 130 degrees Fahrenheit. This disinfects dishes far better than manually washing them by hand.
5. Lower impact on the environment
As I’ve already stated, dishwashers help conserve both energy and electricity. Correspondingly this means that dishwashers have a lower impact on the environment. Also, the detergent used in dishwashers contains lower amounts of phosphate than standard liquid soaps, making dishwashers more environment-friendly also.
6. Keeps dirty dishes out of sight
Another great convenience offered by dishwashers is that you can load dirty dishes into them, keeping them out of sight. This helps keep your kitchen counters clean. Customers have mentioned that they appreciate a clean kitchen and although they may be reluctant to purchase a dishwasher, they agree that dishwashers help in this aspect.
7. Saves time
Finally, one of the biggest benefits of dishwashers is that they allow you to spend your precious time doing more important thing. It is estimated that if you use a dishwasher rather than washing dishes manually, you can save over 230 hours every year! This fact alone has prompted a large number of customers into purchasing dishwashers in Perth from us. It is no wonder that our Freestanding Dishwasher and our Fully Integrated Dishwasher have been purchased by many customers in Perth.
Dishwashers are certainly a very useful appliance to have in your kitchen. They offer a range of benefits and help save you time and energy. Furthermore, dishwashers keep your dishes and glassware safe, disinfect them better and help keep dirty dishes out of sight.
