High-End Features That Make Dishwashing Even Easier

Dishwashers made numerous huge conveniences, even just in the past couple of years. And these features are much more than just heavy and light cycles! In this article are the coolest newer features that can be found in dishwashers and how they may help us save energy, wash more dishes per load, and clean more difficult stains.

Sensor Mode

Sensor cycles make it much easier to save energy and give the dishes the best wash there is. These sensors may detect how dirty the dishes are and choose a cycle by on their own, which starts the best mode for your load type after just a short automatic prep. This mode also selects drying settings. A dishwasher can detect the dishes and change the setting of temperature in the drying cycle. No matter the model, sensor cycles are just a great option for any loads with different kinds of stains or soil.


Wi-Fi connection lets us control the dishwasher remotely from a smart device. Like most of the smart appliances, dishwashers can connect with AI assistants such as Google Home and Amazon Alexa or via a mobile app that can be downloaded on a smartphone. These added features make the smart dishwashers much more efficient and flexible. Most dishwashers let us check the status of the cycle remotely. Plus, they can notify us when our dishes are done and clean. We also have the ability to receive alerts when the detergent or rinse aid is low in the machine, which means you won’t forget to purchase it next time when grocery shopping.

Additional Rack

The good thing about this feature is that it's not a smart technology innovation and yet it gives a great convenience of additional space in your dishwasher. If anyone always runs out of room in the dishwasher, they should look for a dishwasher with a third rack. Many models, seem to have a smaller rack that's placed above the other ones - this is where silverware, serving utensils and small cups mostly go. Shifting the smaller dishes to the top will give more room in the rest of the dishwasher for any other item you need to wash. This third rack feature lets us fit bigger dishes where the silverware basket would be placed on the bottom rack.

Upgraded Jets

A lot of dishwashers nowadays come with jets specific for certain types of dishes. The upgraded jets do the heaviest parts of washing provide more options. For example, you don't have to hand-wash bottles anymore.
