Dishwasher vs. Hand-Washing Dishes


There are some people out there that hate washing dishes-like me! Have you ever wondered if washing dishes or the dishwasher is better for the environment or which one produces less water? There is a new study from Germany conducted by University of Bonn researchers that found that a dishwasher is much more efficient than washing dishes. They found that washing a load of dishes (about 12 dishes) by hand takes on average 27 gallons of water and 2.5 kilowatt-hours of energy to heat the water. This is equal to running a hair dryer for 2.5 hours! On the other hand, an energy efficient dishwasher only uses 4 gallons of water and 1 kilowatt-hours of energy for the same load.  The researchers also conclude that dishwashers tend to wash your dishes better than those who hand wash.

What do you think of this study?
