Do you still wash your dishes by hand? If it’s a yes, then you are wasting a lot of time and energy without any reason rather than just buy yourself a dishwasher. Today the world has become a much better place due to the contribution of several equipment’s which has given mankind the blessing of finishing daily chores quickly and conveniently. Washing dishes is not a very difficult job, but yet if you have to do it twice or thrice in a single day then it becomes quite monotonous and takes up all your leisure time.
The average dishwasher uses 6 gallons of water per cycle; the average Energy Star-rated dishwasher uses 4 gallons per cycle, and their energy use ranges from 1.59 kWh per load down to 0.87 kWh per load. Using the Department of Energy's carbon dioxide emissions numbers of 1.34 pounds of CO2 per kWh, that's 1.16 to 2.13 pounds of carbon dioxide emitted per load, to go along with 4 gallons of water.
Energy Star assumes each load in a "standard" dishwasher (usually 24 inches in size) has "a capacity greater than or equal to eight place settings and six serving pieces," so we'll go with that when considering how many dishes need to be washed by hand.
A noisy dishwasher isn’t just a nuisance that affects the kitchen, depending on its location it may be a disruptive distraction for many other day-to-day household activities. Waking up a sleeping baby or drowning out your favorite TV show are two scenarios that would likely play-out in my house, and depending on the layout of your home, you could probably think of a few situations where a loud dishwasher would be annoying.
Before you buy a new dishwasher, let’s take a closer look at what a dishwasher “decibel rating” means and why you should be paying attention to it.
Benefits of Using A Dishwasher
Washing dishes in a dishwasher is safer because there is less handling of the dishes than when you wash them in the sink. Less breakage means less of a chance for being cut by broken bowls or glasses.
Out of Sight
Placing dirty dishes out of sight in your dishwasher is not only convenient, but it also keeps the kitchen and the counters cleaner.
Dishwashers are more sanitary because they put the dishes through several cycles of scalding hot water, which disinfects them while cleaning. You can't put your hands in dish water that's as hot as the water used in a dishwasher typically 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
In one year, washing dishes in a dishwasher rather than by hand saves more than 230 hours of your time, according to the Energy Star Qualified Dishwasher Partner Resource Guide, published by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Using a dishwasher instead of hand-washing dishes not only saves your personal time and energy, it also cuts down on your water and electricity usage. The Department of Energy estimates that a new, Energy Star-certified dishwasher can save up to 400 SR a year in utility bills, and uses almost 5,000 fewer gallons of water per year. Not only does this save you money, but it also helps save the environment. Less energy usage means less pollution and greenhouse gas production.

Clean from Every Angle
High level Dishwashers starts from 9 programs up to 12 programs, additional programs here add as well the pre wash & additional wash cycle, adding to it the pots & pans cycle, also the noise level rate will be higher (40dBs -), the same will take a place for drying performance, elegant styles with an energy rate of (A++) & higher, as well the water consumption per cycle will be (<10ltr).
