Female hands start glowing with the phrase “dishwasher”. The presence of such unit at home reduces the time, spent of housework by about a third.
A round jug with a content of dishes, rotating around its axis, whereby the water fall into, was the first dishwasher. In Soviet times, such devices flooded the ice cream cafes and eateries. People used it to wash notorious thick glasses and then pour a delicious soda or mmm… a milkshake.
The modern machine is a little more complicated and includes multiple trays for different types of dishes. Heavy pots and pans are down, dining utensils and cups – to top, and there is a special wide pan for cutlery.
It’s all fine, until you ask a question “What do I want?” The first thing you need to decide is the size of the desired purchase.
Types of dishwashers
• Compact (also named as the tabled). It’s advisable to install them in small apartments or country houses on the tables or embed in the wall closet. They have small capacity and four sets of utensils. Low efficiency and poor functionality are compensated by relative cheapness.
• Narrow ones have greater storage capacity (6-8 sets), are great for small kitchens.
• Standard machine will easily consume 10 to 14 sets, by combining such a good capacity with a great performance and rich set of features for any taste.
Recommendations for choosing a dishwasher
Often people have a question “What functions to prefer?”. Quite a difficult question, which you can answer only basing on your own preferences and budget. For example, the Duo Wash function gives the possibility of simultaneously washing of delicate and heavily soiled dishes. With OptoSensor you can select the water hardness. Infrared rat distinguishes the scale, adding necessary salt to soften the water. Lock Easy-Lock automatically locks the door in a case of a loose closure. The function “heating liquid” is activated after the primary wash, to make dishes pleasant to touch.
Rules of operation
Correct operation of the machine is the key to long and trouble-free operation. It’s possible to allocate a number of points, which should be paid attention to:
“Earthing” (by using a European wall socket or water communication), the lack of which threatens serious damage;
The connection to the hot water provokes the failure of rolling elements;
The presence of the food residue on the utensils (bones, cartilage, etc.) can damage the machine;
Unemployment hasn’t brought benefits for no one, therefore, do not let the machine to stand;
Strict adherence of modes, designed for different materials;
Use chemicals without fanaticism. The rule “the more, the better” doesn’t work here, and can even harm.
Serious attitude to the recommendations for loaded items will increase its service life. It’s strongly recommended not to wash wood, copper or brass items. Synthetics are completely immune to the effects of high temperatures. Napkins, towels, sponges, ceramics, old kitchen utensils are not included in the list of “invited”. But all these restrictions absolutely don’t diminsh all the benefits of purchasing a dishwasher, the main helper in your kitchen.
