Some people still think of dishwashers as a bit of a luxury, just for people who don’t want to do the dishes by hand. But it turns out this isn’t true. A scientific study* has demonstrated that dishwashers do more than save your hands, they save energy – and that means they save money too.

The study showed that to wash the same amount of tableware by hand as a full dishwasher used 75 litres of water. Over at Finish, we then compared this and found that the average dishwasher used only 14.2 litres, a significant difference in water usage. As a dishwasher only heats the water it needs, that saves energy compared to hand washing.
