When Choosing The Best Dishwashing Machine

When we are talking about cleaning dishes and the best dishwasher, we should talk about “Miele”. In Germany where Miele was founded and where most of the company’s departments are still located, Miele is considered as the company which doesn’t make any money because the goods from Miele you just buy once in a lifetime due to that these are “Built to Last Forever”. The quality is so good that there will be no costs for maintenance, spare parts or repair.

When you check the components of a Miele dishwasher you will feel the quality. All parts is substantially built and even the racks glide effortlessly. Miele is pure quality. The water pump which is the hardest working part in any dishwasher got also an outstanding quality and will never break down. This pump produces unmatched water pressure which allows the Miele dishwasher to clean better than any other competitor’s dishwasher machines. And it’s quiet due to that the dishwasher got a stainless steel tub. Rated at 46 decibels, this dishwasher is really quiet. Stainless tub dishwashers are quieter than plastic tubs and are capable of washing at higher temperatures for better cleaning results. But not only the tub is made from stainless steel, Miele also uses stainless steel for their wash spray arms for enhanced durability.

With 16 place settings at a time the capacity is damn good and the lower rack may feature taller side walls than any other dishwasher. Special notches keep delicate plates in place during the wash cycle to avoid damage and the lower rack also features folding tines to accommodate large pots and pans or bulky items. The upper rack has two folding shelves to accommodate mugs and small items such as ramekins.

To save space Miele invented the 3rd rack cutlery tray.The 3rd rack makes it easy to arrange silverware for easy unloading later on. The fine silverware is protected from scratches since each piece of flatware is individually separated. This Miele dishwasher offers the best cleaning results for silverware by utilizing a full length spray arm that is reaching to the ends of the cutlery tray.

The drying process is mastered too. Condensation drying, which relies on the hot temperature of the final wash cycle to encourage water to naturally evaporate is used. Furthermore is a fan built in that circulates cool air along the outside of the dishwasher tub to enhance the condensation process even further. Also a Rinseaid dispenser to help improve drying performance and to reduce water spots is installed.

That’s why our product of choice is the Miele Futura Classic Plus G4227SCU Dishwasher with Cutlery Tray for Silverware – Stainless Steel, probably the best dishwasher money can buy!

By The Way How Does A Dishwasher Work?

It cleans the dishes, glasses and even pots are no problem: The dishwasher is one of the most important cleaning tools in the kitchen. But how does a dishwasher work?

How does a dishwasher work? Pre-rinse
At first fresh water enters the dishwasher from below and is decalcified by dishwasher salt.
The up to 50 degrees heated water is pushed by a pump into the rotary arms, which are usually located at the bottom and in the middle. Water pressure sets the rotary arms in motion. The water jet from the spray arms removes the coarse residue of crockery and cutlery. The dirty water flows back to the dishwasher bottom and seeps through a coarse and a fine sieve.
The purified water is now fed back to the rinse cycle. The dirt collects in a container and is pumped between the individual rinsing processes by the circulating pump into the sewage system.

How does a dishwasher work? Dishwashing detergent
With the next step the dishwashing liquid flap opens and the detergent reaches the heated rinse water and dissolves. How warm the water gets depends on the chosen program. The water with the detergent is now passed again into the rotary arm propeller and the process just described is repeated. After about half an hour, the rinse water flows off completely and it follows clear water.

Note! Sometimes the detergent does not dissolve due to less temperature, so we do not recommend to run “Low Temperature Eco Programs”

How does a dishwasher work? Rinse aid prevents water droplets
Then comes the rinse aid, which is usually in a flap with sun symbol on the dishwasher inside, added to the water. The mixture prevents water droplets from remaining on the dishes and causing stains. To avoid the annoying polishing of cutlery or glasses.

How does a dishwasher work? Crockery dries
Finally the drying process starts. The heating elements are raised even more. The dishes heat up and the moisture on them evaporates. After a while, you can clear out.
