According to a study done a few years ago, in the UK in 2011 over 40% of households had a dishwasher. This number is likely to have increased since that time. This still means that at least 50% of the population washes their dishes by hand. There are many reasons for this. Dishwashers themselves are undeniably expensive, even though the price of consumer durables continues to fall. Dishwashers take up a lot of space in a kitchen. Dishwashers cost more to run and need electricity to power them and expensive tablets, finishing liquids and cleaning products to use them. All these reasons aside, there is the fact that some people just prefer to wash by hand. They maintain that you can guarantee a cleaner wash and not have to worry about washing larger dishes and pans separately.
