According to the rules of etiquette and table setting norms, a set of dishes for one person means:

- three flat plates - for garnishes, appetizers, salads and sweet desserts;
- cup for a drink( tea, coffee, compote);
- appropriate glass of alcohol or a glass for water or juice;
- knife with fork;
- three spoons - table, dessert and tea.

As you can see, manufacturers do not take into account pots, pans, chopping boards, as well as ladles, shovels, graters, meat grinders or nozzles of a food processor, pans, etc. When purchasing a particular PMM model, consider how often you cook at home and what kind of utensils you use - all of it should be placed in the tray of your device.
As a rule, trays and grids in PMM are designed for standard dishes - a wide and deep soup bowl, round, standard diameter, small plates. But we do not always use just such dishes - in our kitchens there are deep bowls or bowls for liquid, small square small plates, and other dishware “raisins”.The more non-standard the device is, the more space it will take, and the smaller the amount of utensils you can wash in one PMM cycle.
What are dishwashers?
There is a gradation of dishwashers for washing sets of dishes. Dishwashers are:
- Compact - wash 4-6 sets of plates, cups;
- Narrow - for washing 6-9 sets;
- And full-sized - cope with 12-14 sets of dishes at a time.
The first category is suitable for bachelors, in the kitchens of offices or couples, who only occasionally cook at home. Many such options are offered by the company:
- Bosch( SKS51E22EU, SKS50E32EU, SKS51E22),
- Candy( CDCP 6 ES, CDCP 6 E),
- Electrolux( ESF2400OW, ESF2400OK).
The second category will be able to effectively serve a family of 3-4 people. Please note:
- Bosch SCE52M65, Bosch SPS50E58,
- Hotpoint-Ariston LSTB 4B00 EU,
- Gorenje GV53311,
- Candy CDCP 8 E,
- HANSA ZWM 446 WEH.
But if you are a lucky person from a large family - from 5 people, then it is worthwhile to find a place in your kitchen for a full-sized dishwasher. For example:
- WHIRLPOOL ADP 500 WH,
- BOSCH SMS 41 D 12 EU,
- INDESIT DIF 16B1 A( EU),
- ELECTROLUX ESL95330LO.
This is interesting! There are dishwashers-record holders. One can wash 17 sets of dishes at a time! This is Asko, D 5893 XXL, manufacturer: Sweden. The second is considered one and the smallest. Electrolux ESF 2410 has dimensions of only 45 x 48x 46 cm.

Modern technology copes with any dishes and varying degrees of pollution. However, there are exceptions. In the dishwasher do not recommend washing:
- wooden objects - cutting boards, appliances, containers;
- plastic, which is subjected to deformation during exposure to high temperatures;
- aluminum cookware that may oxidize.
Carefully load crystal and silver into PMM, carefully approach the choice of washing program. It is also risky to wash porcelain painted plates and cups in a dishwasher - paint can be damaged due to high temperatures and chemicals.
