As someone who was an appliance sales person for years, I can say for a fact that washing dishes with a dishwasher is way cheaper than hand washing. That is, if you’re using a more modern dishwasher.
Like most other things, I personally would save and spend more on the better of anything I purchase vs buying the same thing many times, and this goes for appliances also. The newer dishwasher are amazingly efficient and for those complaining about how loud the dishwasher is, there is no need to worry with these newer machines. They’re so quiet these days that you can run your dishwasher while watching a movie sitting right next to that washer.
Appliances has come a far way from the old days where everyone who think they have to spend a lot more on energy and water. If you’ve been hesitant, I say go out and research dishwashers and get one that is efficient and save some money on energy and water along the way.
