Pros and Cons of Buying
When considering whether to purchase a smart machine dishwashing, potential owners as usually begin to study responses of real users and only then offer manufacturers of this kind of technology.
Arguments against the dishwasher
And here Opinions were divided into two opposing camps - "for" and "against". And the happy owners of machines are advised not to think long and just buy it.
But opponents lead a number of arguments against the dishwasher, noting it is completely useless on the farm. Moreover, they believe that you have to spend extra time rewashing her.
It is interesting, but most of the enemies - the husbands who do not want to spend time on the choice of optimal model and its subsequent registration in the kitchen on a regular basis
Having regard to the opponents of the dishwasher (PM), managed to identify the main reasons that lie in the following statements:
- buy it lazy housewives who find it difficult to wash 2 plates and cups per day;
- Machine 2-3 hours washing dishes, and water all that time flows and electricity is consumed;
- consumables need to buy any (tablets, salt, etc.), and that the extra costs,
- Cleaners for the PM - a solid chemistry that is not washed away;
- machine itself is expensive and you need to allocate space for it;
- half the dishes in it can not be washed, you still have to work your hands;
- PM spoils dishes, glasses hit.
In this series, the majority of negative opinions - errors that are not related to the actual experience of using the unit.
Consider the real shortcomings highlighted owners dishwashers.
Place - indeed, it may be a problem if the headset does not provide a place in the dishwasher. Especially on a close the kitchen in a big family, where the detached model does not hold, and the compact can not cope with the required volume of dishes
Consumables - salt, rinses, tablets and other funds have to regularly replenish. But the cost and the frequency depends on the grade and volume of the package - you can be guided by the recommendations of the manufacturer's specific model of PM and its budget
Cost - this is the main drawback, because of which almost every second family of 2-3 or more people not yet installed in the kitchen this au pair. Unfortunately, for many difficult to put an amount of 15-25 thousand rubles
Prejudices, namely a deep-rooted belief of the overwhelming majority of men that wash the dishes - it is a holy mission and sophisticated women in this is nothing. Mother, grandmother and the other ancestors did and had no problems - such argument leads husbands

The saddest of the shortcomings - the choice of a suitable location. Here it is optimal if it is provided at the stage of repair. Otherwise, it is possible to include fantasy, changing the placement of furniture / appliances.
After all dishwasher anywhere you will not put - it is also to water and sewerage connected. Yes, and free outlet is required.
The variant with a compact model may not be appropriate when the number of households more than 3-4 people. Here rational decision is to choose a bigger machine - 10 or more sets. Well, if the kitchen dimensions allow to allocate an appropriate location.
An interesting option for the owners of tight spaces - "3 in 1" or "2 in 1". We are talking about the hob, oven and dishwasher, in one unit. Or the last two of the unit without the cooking surface
About excess consumption of water and electricity can not speak - this statement is broken in the dust on the actual performance counters. The cost of 9-15 liters of cold water used per cycle, will result in a negligible amount per month.
And the bill for electricity will increase insignificantly - because modern PM require power from the network on average 0.75-1.05 kWh. Moreover, this figure depends on the model and the selected mode. There are even more economical.
With regard to difficulties in operation, then all that is required from the owner - the right to place the cookware, taking into account their specific features.
A timely refill unit detergents and 1-2 times a month to wash sprinklers (rocker) and filters.
In the battle of dishes guilty by the user - it needs to be correctly set, guided by the recommendations of the manufacturer. For glasses, for example, may be provided for the holders and knives / forks / spoons - a special basket / department
The benefits of using MMP
The main argument of opponents of dishwashers, asserting the need to clean up on day 2 and plates cup / glass, is true only in a bachelor apartment, eating my mother / in cafe / dining room.
