A Little Goes A Long Way!REVIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | March 31, 2010 at 7:39 pm
It is true: less is sometimes more. Although I have been excited about washing dishes (sure, call me a freak) I have been concerned about living in the dishwasher liquid aisle to replenish my supplies. And before you think how can I really like washing dishes, if you read one of my older posts about hating unloading the dishwasher you will know that washing is not something I detest as much. In case you have not heard I am test driving a new Frigidaire dishwasher and 2 months later and I can still say that I absolutely love it.
I read on the user guide (ok so I really glanced over it) about how the cost of running the dishwasher a year (estimated $21 annual cost when used with natural gas heater) and truthfully that figure made me feel a little less guilty each time I kick it off at night. My previous dishwasher (an ugly monster) took almost 4 times the amount of the dishwasher detergent. When I saw the itty-bitty compartment I was skeptical that such a teeny bit would clean the dishes, but it did. Bear in mind the energy saver mode will not be one to “hard scrub” the dishes but would get them adequately cleaned.
We all would love to go a little greener so when a dishwasher goes the extra mile to support that it certainly helps. I also try and use eco-friendly dishwasher detergent.
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a Test Drive Campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Frigidaire and received a Frigidaire Dishwasher to facilitate my review!
