The soap used in a dishwasher is what makes a difference in how good and clean the plates, glasses, pots and pans come out of the dishwasher. The differences in the dishwasher machine makes and models are the number of different washing programs, the time taken for dish washing, the electric power the dishwasher consumes, the amount of water used per dishwashing cycle, the reliability of the dishwasher and the service facility for the dishwasher available near you. The top dishwasher brands in the world are, in my opinion, the German brands, especially Bosch and Siemens (both made by Bosch Homes) which are very good and reliable brands.
The top dishwasher brands in India are Bosch, Siemens, LG and IFB.
One important tip using dishwashers. Modern day dishwasher soaps use enzymes to break down starch and proteins in burnt-on or baked-on residue on dishes and make dishes spotlessly clean. Enzymes require time to break down food stuck to plates and dishes and they need to be at below 50°C to work properly. This is why modern dishwashers take such a long time to complete a cleaning cycle, usually more than 3 hours in eco 50 mode. Even though the dishwashers work for longer times than the older generation dish washers, it works at lower temperatures and uses lesser electricity and water. The Eco-50 is the ideal setting for dishwasher soaps to clean dishes thoroughly. So it is always better to run a dishwasher in the eco-50 mode. If the dishes are not very heavily dirty, then use just about a tea-spoon full of dishwasher soap. You need to add more soap in the dishwasher only when there is burnt-on or baked-on residue in the dishes. In such a situation a dishwasher tablet will be very helpful, or put dishwasher soap to the maximum level in the dishwasher soap tray. Also you can sprinkle a tea-spoon of dishwasher soap over the bottom tray of the dishwasher.
The main cost of running a dishwasher is in the soap, rinse aid and salt used in a dishwasher. All these together will cost under Rs.9- per wash as explained in our page about why buy a dishwasher and how to use dishwasers.
