Dishwashers are one of the most indispensable appliances around the kitchen. Families know this. Single people may not have much of a need for a dishwasher, as more of their time may be spent out with friends at restaurants or eating food ordered in, with little use to clean up dishes. But for families, having an automatic dishwasher to clean up after most every meal is a time saver and sanity restorer.
Dishwashers today come in compact models, standard models and hi-tech marvels, but essentially, they all do the same thing. Produce soap and water in concentrated amounts to clean your dishes and dry them with the touch of a button or two, leaving you with nothing but clean dishes, ready for the next meal.
Size of dishwasher
In large families, the more wash capacity inside the dishwasher matters a lot. Can you fit in the dirty dishes AND the pots that cooked the food? Before you start to look at dishwasher models, think about the size that’s necessary for your family. Are you 1-2 parents and 1-2 kids? Then a compact or standard model should work OK.

Assorted dials and buttons are used to set the type of wash that’s needed. The newer, high technology models offer controls for temperature settings and more.
However, if you’re looking at 5-8 persons or more for meals in the house, then you should seriously considering upgrading to a large-capacity dishwasher. These large dishwashers hold so much more that compact or standard models. Some of these marvels are a joy to see in action. They hold up to 10 ‘settings’ (which usually includes an assortment of large and small plates, bowls, coffee cups, cutlery, kitchen cooking utensils and more. In large families, this means high performance dish cleaning with large capacity for those big family meals.
