A modern apparatus is invented and many in an industrialized community finally endorse it.
Will it save us time? Will it do exactly what marketers say it will do? What does it cost? Is it a good use of time and energy?
Some confessions: I did not grow up with a dishwasher. I was the dishwasher. The fact is that my four siblings and I cleaned, washed and dried dishes from kindergarten through the high school. We did not own a dishwasher when I grew up. Therefore, I was exposed to detergent by hand from an early age and generally accepted this fact. I felt the more you wash by hand, the better you get after it was not a difficult task to complete.
On the other hand, my wife grew up a dishwasher - she was socialized and learned to believe that no sensible person in an industrialized society should clear dishes manually. Thats why you have a dishwasher! If you have a modern device, use it to the fullest to simplify and improve your life. When we first met over 20 years ago, she could not understand why I would wash the counter by hand. From her perspective, she did not see the purpose. In other words, if you have one, ever go back to something as basic as washing all the dirty dishes in a sink full of warm soapy water.
If you really think objectively, there may be some disadvantages of using a dishwasher. A modern convenience does not necessarily mean its a modern convenience. Were we willing to believe it? Would it be safe to say that only those who sometimes wash their dishes by hand feel that there are disadvantages to owning and using a dishwasher?
How about those who usually use a dishwasher? Should any of these people over time begin to see less and less value in the dishwasher? Will any of them ask about it over time or consider it average? It is a difficult thing to measure. In terms of my analysis and evaluation, it is based mainly on some dishwashers I have owned over the years in terms of size, age, functionality and noise generation.
Often you have to bend over to place a dish in the dishwasher. Sometimes you have to move around the counter to other areas to ensure that all dishes fit in place.
If you do not dirt too many dishes at a time, only run the dishwasher once a week. This means that dirty dishes eliminate the amount of clean glasses, intestines, cutlery or plates available. This can be an inconvenience. If you run it half full because you need some dishes, which are not a good resource use.
You must clean (or at least rinse) the dish before placing them in the dishwasher. If you run the laundry enough to clean, scrub or rinse the dish, why not just do it by hand? You may possibly spend as much water as preparing to place the dish in the dishwasher as doing it by hand and finishing the task.
What goes in has to go out. When done, you must bend over and pull out the clean dishes. We have invented a modern device to do it for us. Do not forget to bring a clean towel to wipe any dishes that are still moist or contain water.
There is also the noise level. Our dishwasher is about 8 years old and when we drive it, we need to turn up the sound on our TV, which is about 30 meters away.
When making dishes by hand, there are no extra costs. With this modern device you have to consider the cost of buying or replacing the existing one.
Some modern appliances can be considered a godsend and save time and a lot of work. For example, I would place the washing machine in that category. To physically wash three or four loads by hand would be a difficult task and would be extremely time consuming. A dishwasher does not save much time or convenience, although it may still have some value for some, but absolutely nothing compared to a washing machine.
Even if you did not have to rinse or wash the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, it appears that there is a lot of water that is used to clean the disc. Do not have the exact amount of water used for a load in the dishwasher, but it is safe to say that there is more water per item than washing the dish by hand.
If you have a party, you have to create a lot of dishes-just so many will fit into the dishwasher, which means you have to do some dishes by hand anyway.
You load the dish in the dishwasher and you do not have to worry about them for a while.
Each time, it would probably not be hurt to drive your dishes through the dishwasher to give them another alternative to being sterilized. Even if you can achieve the same results by using hot soapy water, wash them by hand.
