Dishwashers don’t just save more water compared to washing by hand, they can also be energy-efficient when used properly. If your dishwasher has an eco mode, use it according to the manual. And make sure to fully load your dishwasher before running it to maximize its output.
Cascade Platinum ActionPacs™ are powerful enough to clean dishes with up to 48-hour stuck-on food without the prewash, which can help ensure items don’t need to go through the dishwasher a second time. If you’re in the market for a new dishwasher, look for the Energy Star rating on new models. Cascade recommends brands like Whirlpool®, Maytag®, and Kitchen Aid®.
