Myth busting truths about using a dishwasher by AEG-Electrolux, world expert in ‘doing the dishes’ by dishwasher!

It’s hard to believe but only four in ten households in the UK have a dishwasher! To anyone who has had one, being without a dishwasher would be like being without your washing machine – you simply can’t ‘live without one once you have had one!’ Many people still justify their reason for not having one because ‘They guzzle so much water and energy’. In fact this is one of the biggest myths. Just take a look at what a dishwasher holds – 12 place settings or 120 pieces of cutlery and crockery. Now – can you imagine washing all these in one tiny bowlful of water (as little as 7 litres of water – see picture) – that’s what the AEG-Electrolux Proclean dishwasher can do! Its a fact that using a dishwasher saves water and energy. Here we bust that myth and several others!
