All of us should agree that our households are very dependent on our unreliable maids. Except for the few lucky ones, most of us have maids who bail on us at the last possible minute. And if you are like me, you also absolutely hate washing vessels. Enter: Dishwasher! A Dishwasher is such a life saver. You can just load all the dirty vessels into it and it’ll all be squeaky clean in a couple of hours or less (while you take a nap). Another huge advantage of using dishwashers is that it uses very little water. A manual washing session of a family of 4 per day will require up to 60 litres of water while the dishwasher uses only around 9 litres for the same amount of vessels. Wow, right? If you are having a tough time choosing a dishwasher that is perfect for you, here is a list of the  Best Dishwashers in India.

How to choose the Best Dishwasher for you?
  • Energy Efficiency: The energy rating levels for dishwashers range from A+ to A+++ with the latter being the best. The better the energy efficiency rating, the lesser your electricity bills.
  • Place settings: The number of place settings tells you how spacious the dishwasher is. Although brands convince you that a dishwasher with 12 place settings is enough for a family of 6, that is not exactly the case. With a family of 6 and a 12 place setting dishwasher, you will end up running 2 cycles in the dishwasher on most days, thus using more water and electricity. So buying a dishwasher with 15 place settings for a family of 6 will save a lot of power and water in the long run even though it may cost more during purchase.
  • Half load feature: On some days, you may have very few vessels to wash. You still don’t have to wash them manually as most dishwashers have a half load feature that will use less water, electricity and detergent while effectively washing all the vessels.
  • Refill Indicator: All dishwashers come with this feature these days but make sure yours does. Cos only the indicator lets you know when you should refill salt and rinse aid in the dishwasher.
  • Dry feature: If you don’t like waiting for your vessels to dry cos it takes too much space on your counter-top, you can choose the extra-dry feature and have them dried inside the dishwasher itself.
  • Pre-wash: Almost all dishwashers have a pre-wash or pre-soak feature. You will be needing this if your vessels are extremely dirty or have dried with the dirt on it. This will ensure completely clean utensils after the full cycle is done.
  • Warranty: Choose a dishwasher that has long warranty periods and easily accessible service centres.
  • Price: Last but not least, the price is what determines which dishwasher you should get. Do not pay extra for features that seem fancy but you may never use.

Some Dishwasher Pointers to keep in mind:
  • Always simply wash the vessels lightly so that no particle residue is sticking to them before you place them in the dishwasher. While the dishwasher can remove those particles, it’ll all get collected in the residue compartment and will therefore require frequent clean ups of the compartment or it may cause the dishwasher to not function properly.
  • Arrange the vessels in the dishwasher in such a way that allows optimal cleaning. Place the dirtiest parts facing the water spouts. Ideally, arrange vessels in the sections of the dishwasher that is meant for them (plates stacked one behind the other, cups facing down).
  • Look out for the Salt and Rinse Aid refill alerts and fill them up for the best cleaning.
  • Make sure all your cups and bowls are facing downwards so that soapy water does not get collected in them while rinsing.
  • Always choose a mode according to how dirty the vessels are. It does not mean that the vessels will only get clean if the dishwasher runs for longer. • Do not overload the dishwasher too much as you will only end up rewashing vessels that don’t get washed properly.
  • While using the dry or extra dry feature keep in mind that the dishwasher dries the utensils with steam. So plastic vessels that are not dishwasher safe but have survived normal rinse cycles may lose shape or even melt because of the steam! You have been warned!

Can I use Dishwasher Tablets?
Although dishwasher tablets are growing in popularity, they are not really user-friendly. Dishwasher tablets combine dishwasher detergent and dishwasher rinse aid together and so, seems like it is very easy to use. All you have to do is put the tablet in the detergent compartment. But a looooooot of people have reported that half or more of the tablet remains in the detergent compartment after the cycle is over. And this makes customers question the effectiveness of the cleaning cycle. Although this may be because the tablet contains a lot more detergent and rinse aid than required. But we don’t know. So I would suggest getting detergent separately and rinse aid separately. This way, you get to decide how much detergent to put depending on the number of vessels and their soilage. Therefore, saving detergent in the long run. Also, tablets are very expensive!
