A dishwasher is an industrial machine used to dry Cutlery and other food-storage utensils automatically without human interference. Unlike manual dish washing, which usually relies on physical scrubbing at the surface of dishware to remove stubborn soiling, the automatic dishwasher cleans by shooting high volumes of hot water, usually up to 125 °C, into the dishes. The heated water is used to draw out dirt and food particles from the dishes and wipe them away. This procedure leaves dishes looking sparkling clean.
Most dishwashers have five cycles, each of which can run for up to sixty minutes. Some dishwashers have as many as eight cycles may rua chen. Dishwashers with longer cycles offer more convenience, especially to busy people who find it hard to spend time in the kitchen running the dishwasher. However, long cycles of dishwasher cleaning might be too much for some types of dishes and hence cannot be selected necessarily.
Each cycle of a dishwasher corresponds to a set of predetermined numbers of rotations. When a cycle is started, all the non-cleaning cycles are immediately started as well. The maximum number of rotations of a timer is ten. Some dishwashers have separate cycles for different types of dishes; for instance, there may be a separate cycle for wet dishes and a separate one for dry ones. It is advisable to read the instruction manual to know the exact cycle/cycles for a dishwasher before purchasing one.
The start-up process of a dishwasher involves a series of pre-start procedures. The starter motor of the machine is pre-heated before it is switched on, and water is added to the pan as well as the dishes. Then the water is turned on and the heated motor starts moving, mixing the water with the heated water in the pans. This causes the water to boil and form steam, which rises through the heating element to fill all the dishwashers’ containers. The boiling water then meets the heated metal coils that form the inner lining of the dishwasher doors and the outer cover.
After the water is boiled, it is now transferred into the loading dishwasher bins by the use of a pump. Thereafter, these containers are separated to form individual cycles. When washing vegetables or clothes, it is advisable not to wash the inner surface of the garments with the same water as that used inside the container. It is best to wash them separately to ensure that the quality of both the materials is maintained. The washing of the outer surface of the garments also ensures that the outer quality control of the dishwashers is strictly followed.
After washing, all the dry dishes should be placed in the dishwasher’s storage racks, where they can be dried appropriately. Once the dishes are all ready to be stored, the control panel should be switched off. The automatic dishwasher is then turned on manually, and cycles should be started before entering the kitchen. As per the manufacturers’ specifications, a minimum of five cycles should be run for each load in the dishwasher, to ensure smooth washing of the utensils.
