Dishwasher vs. Hand Washing

Recommended Posts

Okay, guys.
So I posted a facebook status the other day about my Dishwasher, and recieved some feedback about how I was 'gioven two hands for a reason' and implying that using a dishwasher is lazy.
I didn't install the dishwasher, the house came with it and it's the first time in my adult life I've lived in a house with one.

I definitely see the benefits of a dishwasher, though. They are more economical, they save time, they save water (and are thus more environmentally friendly.)
Before I had one, I really thought I didn't need one. Now that I do though, I think I'd struggle to keep the dishes at bay without them (we used to have a bit of a problem with them piling up in the sik, in our previous homes.)

So I guess I put it to you, what do you prefer?
Is one definitely better than the other?
Did my friend have a point? (Not that it's likely to affect my choices...)

I use the dishwasher. It's way faster that way and you can wash more dishes at the same time especially when you have a lot of people over for dinner.

I still do handwashing the dishes sometimes though.

I don't have the privilege of having a dishwasher. My dad won't buy one and there's no place in my kitchen for one. I grew up handwashing my dishes and since I'm the only one in my house who actually cleans, I'm the one who has to do it since it's just me and my dad.

I use a dishwasher, because it's quicker and a lot easier.  Handwashing can be annoying at times when you have had a hard day at work.  I love the dishwasher, I got one for £60 I don't know if that's good for a brand new dishwasher.  It saves me a lot of time of doing it.  I used to do the washing up all of the time before I got a dishwasher.

I would say doing a combination of the two will give you’re the best results as both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Dishwashing is really good at getting rid of bacteria but is dreadful for removing stuck on food.

Hand washing is really good at removing stuck on food but is not very good at removing bacteria, due to cleaning things being used for multiple dishes.
