When you use a dishwasher compared to washing by hand, you use 2.5 times less energy and 3.5 times less water (about 10L compared to 35L)*.
It also saves time: about 70 hours a year!
To achieve this, remember to use the "eco" mode on your dishwasher whenever possible. It will take longer but can save up to 45% energy per cycle.
Your dishwasher is therefore more ecological and economical than washing by hand.
*According to GIFAM (Groupement Interprofessionnel des Fabricants d'Appareils d'équipement Ménager (Interprofessional Group of Manufacturers of Household Appliances)).
There is no need to rinse your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Simply remove any scraps of food with some cutlery... this will save you several litres of water!

Some dishwashers even have an automatic program that uses a sensor to detect the size of the load and degree of soiling and adjusts the cycle accordingly.
Some appliances also have a steam program to dissolve fat effectively.
The average household uses its dishwasher 5 times a week.
