Below we have a list of do’s and don’ts for operating your dishwasher correctly.
Q1. Should dishes be rinsed before loading?
For most dishwashers, this is not a requirement per say. But if you are looking for better cleaning results it is advised that you rinse your dirty dishes before loading them into the dishwasher. When rinsing, focus on removing large food scraps. That alone is enough to make a very big difference.
Q2. Is there a wrong way to load a dishwasher?
Absolutely yes! And from that there is also a right way to load a dishwasher. You need to leave adequate space between your dishes so that water can get into those spaces and thoroughly clean your dishes. This Dilusso freestanding dishwasher is perfect for people with big families that require many dishes to be washed at the same time. It has ample space so that each dish can be thoroughly cleaned.
Q3. Should knives be washed in the dishwasher?
A lot of experts will tell you that knives should not be washed using a dishwashing machine because they will become blunt. But this is not always the case. There are a lot of factors that contribute towards whether or not your knives become blunt. The material of your knives, the type of detergent that you use, and the drying capabilities of your dishwasher are all important.
So, you need to give your dishwasher a try to see if it is suitable for washing knives or not. If you choose to do so, the knives must be put tip down to ensure safety. Make sure that they are not rubbing against any other cutlery and use a detergent that is not abrasive. Finally take the knives out of the tray as soon as the cycle is done so that they do not spend longer than necessary in the dishwasher.
Q4. How are dishwashers better than regular handwashing?
The main advantage of having a dishwasher is the fact that you get to spend very little time washing dishes every day. All you need to do is load the dishwasher and unload it. Everything in between is done for you. Dishwashers are also more hygienic than normal handwashing as they use very hot water that is simply not possible to use with hand washing.
