Choose an ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwasher

Why

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.

How

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.
