Choose an ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwasher
ENERGY STAR® certifies that your dishwasher won’t use more than 16 litres of water. Filling your kitchen sink to hand wash dishes likely uses 20 litres or more.
Numerous ENERGY STAR® rated dishwashers are available, in pretty much every price range. As well as ensuring you buy ENERGY STAR®, look at the EnerGuide rating to be sure the dishwasher you buy is the most efficient one that will meet your needs. Both residential and commercial type dishwashers can be ENERGY STAR® rated.
