A dishwasher is actually an import feature of a kitchen, it also ups the market value of your kitchen when you want to sell your house or condo unit.
In this article, we will be discussing about 6 major reasons why you need a dishwasher in your kitchen. But before we start, let us explain the types of dishwashers available in the market.
There are two type of dishwashers
- Built-in Dishwashers: This type of dishwasher requires a specific plumbing system to drain and receive water, like many 18-inch types.

6 Major Reasons Why You Need A Dishwasher in you Kitchen
1. It’s hygienic:
Generally the kitchen sink is one of the dirtiest places in the kitchen because it can breed germs due to the amount of things tossed on it. Another germ breeder is the washing sponge, which is actually the number one place for breeding germs. In order to prevent this, a dishwasher is a more hygenic place to wash your dishes, it also has the ability to wash dishes with hot water which helps to sanitize your dishwares perfectly without using chemicals. This in turn prevents the spread of germs on your plates.
2. Saves water:
Washing dishes manually actually takes up more water than you think. A dishwasher is set up to take up a specific amount of water and even the new age dishwashers use water according to how much is loaded in the tub.
This helps you save money on electric bills. Also, a dishwasher is environmentally-friendly because it takes up less water and most dishwashers now are equipped with a power saving option.
3. Reduced house chores:
House chores can be so overwhelming especially when you have a 9 to 5 job, then you get home and after dinner there are a lot of dishes waiting for you. The good thing about dishwashers is that anyone can learn to operate it all they need to do is remove food scraps and load the dishwasher, press the start button and the washing cycle begins.
4. Effective cleaning:
Sometimes we underestimate the cleaning power of a dishwasher. No more soaking pots with water, now dishwashers are able to clean tough stains provided you have a good dish washing liquid.
5. Time saving:
Time is very important, imagine loading a dishwasher and that’s all you have to do while you clean up your house, or even go to bed. Most dishwashers now turn off themselves after washing so you don’t need to worry about what time your dishwasher will finish washing the dishes.
Having a lot of guest in the house is now not a problem when you own a dishwasher, you can now enjoy hosting your parties in your house. Some guest even go as far as helping you load your dishwasher because they are polite, and it is easy.
7. Saving your pretty hands:
Washing dishes can affect your hands by making it rough and sometimes some dishwashing liquids can be tough on our hands, giving rough wrinkled hands. So it’s best save your hands and let the dishwasher do its job.
