From here – the option to buy a dishwasher 45 cm (narrow, suitable for small kitchen in high-rise building) or 60 cm (full-size). With this capacity narrow enough cars to load at least 6-7 sets dishes – this is quite enough for a family consisting from 3-4 people. Moreover, the standard European-style kit is as many as 11 devices (3 plates, cup, saucer, 3 spoons, knife, fork, wineglass). After that, you can proceed to the analysis of others parameters.
If you often host a large number of guests, think about placing in the kitchen a full-sized dishwasher that copes with a lot of dishes in one wash cycle
The dishwasher, depending on the model, may connect to both hot and cold water. Last option most common, as cold water is cleaner softer, which means that the quality of washing dishes will be higher. But at the same time such cars consume more electricity – it goes to additional heating. Hot water models consume less electricity, but there are two negative factor a. The first is to turn off the hot water (especially in summer) and the actual cost of hot water, which almost eliminates the difference with increased electricity consumption in models, connected to cold water. True, there are special mixers, allowing to connect the car simultaneously to two highways – cold and hot water, but they are very expensive, their clean the cost is about $ 70-100
Typically, a dishwasher is built in next to the sink and they have a siphon to drain the water. On the machine heats the water for washing on its own (just like your washing machine), but you can save on electricity with a machine that connects to cold and hot water
Daily use trick: small items are best wash in the dishwasher. This will save you even more. time
Typically, the design of the dishwasher involves two baskets. Top – for tableware, glasses and cups, lower – for larger dishes. Also at the top place more dirty dishes, in the bottom – cleaner. For convenience placement and filling utensils baskets may have adjustments to height, removable or folding holders (stack small cutlery). May be special fragile glass holders (crystal) and special baskets in which stack sharp objects – knives, both ordinary and from kitchen harvesters.
Removable cutlery basket
Adjusting the height of the lower basket allows you to wash enough large items other than pots, such as metal exhaust filter grill or gas grill stoves.
Advice! It is much more convenient to work with retractable baskets that have a retractable front end pen.
In standard models, they are usually two rotating, in upscale there is an additional – third, upper, not rotating, but significantly improving the quality of the wash. Quality dishwashing is indicated in Latin letters – A (highest), B, C, D and E (lowest).
According to your daily needs, choose a car by washing class: A (highest), B, C, D and E (lowest)
Be sure to consider the water hardness in your area, otherwise on as before, lime stains will remain if there is such a problem. Use special water softeners when the need
The final stage of washing dishes – drying, the end of which the dishes can be taken out and immediately put in cupboard. It can be implemented by two ways:
- active (turbo-drying) – the dishes are blown with hot air, blower fan. This method is more effective, the dishes dry faster, but requires additional energy consumption
- condensation – natural. After the last rinse, carried out by hot water, the car is switched off. Leftover hot moisture condenses on the cold walls of the working chamber, after which just drain into the drain. Such drying is longer, but more economical
Drying efficiency is also indicated literally – from class A (highest) to G (low).

The efficiency of a dishwasher is determined by two factors – consumption of electricity and water for one wash cycle. For energy designations use standard scale from A (energy efficient) to G (very uneconomical). Modern economical models consume up to 9-10 liters of water per cycle, and all that require more than 15-18 liters, it is worth considering only after them.
Place the plates with the “front” side to the center of the basket: usually the water spray in the machines is directed so that it is in this position that they will be flushed flawlessly
Advice! To fully appreciate the effectiveness of using a dishwasher, you have to buy dishes so that you don’t have to wash the dishes after each meal.
