Re: Sources for Discovering Dishwasher Quality

Just a really small tidbit of a footnote here for those who have not bought a dishwasher in recent years.

I am finding that the run time for cleaning the dishes can be 1-2+ hours. Seriously. Apparently the energy constraints on how much energy can be used lengthens the cycle for the machine.

FWIW.
