Washing the dishes could be quite a dreadful task—it could be grimy, tedious, and time consuming, and you have to do it couple of times a day. But if you have money to shell out, you might want to look into getting a dishwasher.

This small appliance lets you clean dinnerware, cookware, and cutlery without much fuss. Apart from not having to manually scrub plates and bowls until they’re sparkling clean, it also reduces the chances of breaking dinnerware because you just need to pop it in the machine and take them out after the cycling process is done. Take note that not all items can be washed using this machine, like cast iron pans, antiques, and sharp knives, among others.

As convenient as it may be, using a dishwasher also has its drawbacks. It’s one more appliance that would require power and space in your home. Plus, dishwashers don’t come cheap, and you’d also need to get dishwashing tablets or powders compatible with your machine. A dishwashing cycle might also take longer than washing plates manually, but of course, it all boils down to how many items need to be washed.


Before getting a dishwasher, it pays to consider how much you could load in it and where you intend to place it. You might come across the words “place settings” when going shopping, as these are used to determine the capacity of a dishwasher. A six-place setting, for example, consists of six sets of plates, glasses, and utensils.
