Dishwasher vs Handwashing

Once you own a dishwasher there's no going back! It takes away the hassle of washing up and is proved by an independent UK study* in 2008 to save precious time, water and energy too.

Save Time

Did you know that over the course of a year, using a dishwasher could save you over 130 hours, compared to washing by hand! That big pile of dishes building up in the sink can be daunting, but with a dishwasher all you need to do is load your washer and go!


Save Water

According to the 2008 Intertek UK study, manual dishwashing uses 49L of water for a full load, whereas automatic dishwashers use typically 10L - 14L per wash to clean the same number of dishes. Automatic dishwashing uses up to 80% less water than washing up by hand so can save on your water bills.


Save Energy

The study also showed you could save on your energy bills, because manual dishwashing uses 1.96KWH of energy whereas automatic dishwashers use up to half that amount to complete the same load.


Better Cleaning Performance

Just doing one load of washing in your day is sure to put a smile on your face! You can gradually fill your dishwasher with the day's plates and cutlery or load it at the end of the day, either way a fully loaded Dishwasher is more energy efficient than hand washing.


A squeaky clean and hygienic sparkle

Dishwashers run at higher temperatures than your hands can withstand, so kill more germs. Leaving you not only with sparkling results, but also the ultimate hygienic clean.


Softer and safer hands

Softer Hands

There's no need to dip your hands in and out of soapy water, leaving them dry, chapped and exposed to cuts from broken glassware.

Keep your hands silky smooth and simply load the dishwasher, add FINISH and enjoy The Diamond Standard sparkle.
