Whether you’re looking to save money or save the planet, folks have long wondered which is better: washing dishes by hand or using the dishwasher. It turns out, this question has been studied … in a lab … by fastidious German scientists!
Several years ago, researchers at the University of Bonn observed more than 100 people washing dishes, then crunched the data and compared how much water and electricity the humans used compared to the machines. The results? For the same amount of dishes, humans used an average of 27.2 gallons and 2.5 kWh of electricity, while energy-efficient dishwashers used about 4 gallons of water and 1.5 kWh. (The machines also got the dishes cleaner.) http://www.recipe.com/blo...dishwasher-ten-things/
Also you might want to consider cooking your salmon in the dishwasher. http://www.winexmagazine....eat/dishwasher-salmon/
Poaching fish in the dishwasher is a virtually foolproof way to shock your friends, prepare a succulent meal and do the dishes -- all at the same time. I've poached salmon in more than 100 dishwashers on three continents. There's never been a dull party.
