Dishwashers are mechanical devices that are used to clean eating utensils and dishes. They are mainly found in homes and also in restaurants. They work by spraying very hot water, mixed with detergents to dishes, followed by clean water to get rid of the detergent. It is for the interest of saving time that people have continued to design kitchen equipment that saves time (Paul, 2007). Dishwashers are very popular equipment in the kitchen; they simplify work for many people, both at home and at restaurants. The purpose of this paper is to address the advantages of a dishwasher, and hence, create awareness on why it is important to own a Dishwasher.
Dishwashers have a lot of advantages, placing them among the most used equipment in the kitchen (Michael, 2004). Dishwashers are automatic machines, hence they do not need a person to monitor. Bryan Cranston, an American actor, verifies this when, in his famous quote, says, “My wife is the cook, really I am a good helper and I can clean like nobody’sbusiness. I can load a dishwasher like nobody else, hence all you need to do is load a dishwasher.” Before the invention of dishwashers, people used to wash dishes and utensils manually. It was a tedious process where one had to wash and dry the dishes and utensils. Nowadays the dishwashers save time and even make it possible for people to accomplish other activities (Rowley, 2007). Dishwashers are very convenient as compared to other kitchen equipment, hence majority of people have decided to obtain them.
Many people are sensitive to certain chemicals contained in soaps and detergents. When the soaps and detergents are in contact with their body, they develop certain reactions; this can lead to dry and squamous skin (Braun, 1997). Dishwashers will be of great help to such individuals since they do not contain soaps and detergents. The machine releases the detergents and the soaps automatically. An individual just needs to load the dishwasher and it does the rest of the activities (Jordan, 2007). It also will reduce the household expenses, since one does not need to hire another person to clean dishes in fear of contaminating with the soap and the detergents. Hand washing the dishes and utensils also make one prone to injuring themselves. Using the dishwasher reduces the occurrence of such a case.
The dishwasher can be adjusted depending on the utensils to be cleaned. For instance, one should set low temperatures for washing small utensils. This will ensure that each utensil is cleaned properly. One should not mix metallic cups with plastic mugs when washing since high temperature will damage the plastic cups. Similarly, one should not mix breakable utensils with utensils that cannot be broken easily (Freeman, 2004). This is because durable utensils will collide with the weak ones and cause breakages (Rowley, 2000). The temperatures of the dishwasher can also be adjusted depending on the stains on the utensils. For instance, utensils that have fatty residues of food will require hot water. Contrary, utensils that do not have fatty residues do not require hot water to remove the stains. The cleaning speed of the dishwasher can also be adjusted depending on the volume of utensils to be cleaned (Paul, 2007).
These machines have sensors that are controlled by microprocessors. These sensors can also detect the volume of utensils fed to the washer (Freeman, 2004). Special sensors give commands to the machine about the length of time it will take to clean the utensils. Therefore, a person should not worry about some utensils not being cleaned. The dishwasher also has numerous pros in terms of its economical nature. The device is very economical because it saves a lot of time and money. First, the machine only requires one person to operate. Before this machine was developed, hotels and restaurants used to employ a lot of personnel to do the dishes (Jordan, 2007). When used to clean dishes in commercial establishments, the device saves a lot of funds that could be spent to pay for human labour. This method of cleaning the dishes has been proven efficient, cost effective, and easy. The machine is also economical since it saves a lot of time. People do not need to spend considerable time doing dishes (Freeman, 2004). People who hand-clean their utensils use a lot of soaps and detergents, but the dishwasher regulates the amount of soaps and detergents utilized. This helps save those substances since the dishwasher will only use the necessary amount to make an item clean.
The dishwasher is an indispensable gadget in the modern kitchen (Jankowski, 2001). A lot of people have purchased this device, and they have testified that the gadget has helped them a lot. Since people become busier, this machine has helped save some time for other activities. The machine is efficient and convenient. It meets the challenges of cleaning dishes and, thus, making life easier. It is a very effective gadget that has transformed the modern kitchen to attain great levels of neatness.
