Learning About The Latest Appliance Sales

About six months ago I realized that we needed to do something to renovate our kitchen. It was old, outdated, and a little non-functional. I didn't know what to do to improve things, but a friend of mine mentioned that it might be smart to go through and replace the appliances. We started going shopping, and I realized that we needed to figure out where to get a great deal. We started combing through sales, and I actually got pretty good at snagging bargains. This blog is all about learning more about the latest appliance so that you can renovate on a dime.

All The Different Wash Cycle Options For A Dishwasher

by Karl Jacobs

When it comes to taking care of your dishes, you want to purchase a dishwasher that will take care of all your washing needs. You want a dishwasher that will keep everything nice and clean. There are lots of different types of washing cycles on your dishwasher, and understanding these settings will help you better take care of your dishes. 

Sanitize Cycle 

The sanitizing cycle on your washing machine uses extra hot water to clean your dishes. The water is generally about twenty to thirty degrees hotter than it is with a regular wash cycle. This wash cycle pretty much kills all bacteria. The sanitizing cycle is great when you are feeding an infant and you want everything to be really clean. The sanitizing cycle is also great if anyone in your household is sick and you are trying to keep everyone else healthy. 


You may not always have enough dishes for a full cycle, but you may still need to get those dishes washed. With a half-load option, you can economically run your dishwasher when you only have half a load of dishes to wash. A half-load cycle uses less water and doesn't run as long as a full cycle. It will get your dishes clean without using that much energy and water. 

Power Cycle 

The power cycle is also often referred to as the pots and pans cycle. The pots and pans cycle uses hotter water and more water in order to remove all the grime that is on your pots and pans. This cycle is for cleaning things up when stuff gets really dirty. 

Quick Wash 

Sometimes, you need to get some dishes washed quickly. Maybe you forgot to run the dishwasher last night and you need clean dishes for dinner. A quick wash that takes less than half an hour will allow you to quickly get your dishes washed.  

Delicate Wash 

When you have some fragile items to wash, such as china or crystal, you don't want to use the regular wash cycle. You want to use the delicate wash cycle. With delicate dishes, you want to rinse them off before you load the dishes up. 

When it comes to your dishwasher, make sure that you understand all of the wash cycles and options you have for taking care of your dishes before you purchase a new dishwasher. Understanding your wash cycles will allow you to get the most out of your new dishwasher and will allow you to pick the right dishwasher for your needs.
