How to load your dishwasher

Entertaining: Let Your Dishwasher Do the Work!

To get your dishes truly clean, you need to know how to load your dishwasher properly. This is especially important during weekends like Memorial Day weekend, when extra company and festive parties can create extra work for the hosts. ASKO has dishwashers that can do the work for you, including some that have a plate-warming feature to use before your holiday party. Here are some tips for correctly loading your dishwasher.

Do not pre-rinse, but scrape instead. A good dishwasher will save time and money by allowing you to scrape your dishes instead of rinsing before you load them. This saves water, as well as your time.

  • Choose a dishwasher that is the right size and configuration for your dishes. Many newer dishwashers have removable or adjustable racks, so that you can change it to fit your dishes.
  • Use a dishwasher with different cycles. An efficient dishwasher will allow you to run a quick cycle for lightly soiled dishes or dishes that you need to use quickly, and other cycles for more heavily soiled items.
  • Fully load your dishwasher. It is more energy efficient to run a dishwasher that is full, and a good machine will clean a full load just as well as a partial load. Be careful not to nest any dishes inside each other, as this will prevent water from circulating over the entire surface of each dish.
  • Go easy on the detergent. Today‚Äôs ASKO dishwashers use less water than traditional machines, and require less soap. Your dishes end up sparkling and clean, and you save money on soap and water.


ASKO is leading manufacturer of high quality European appliances, and their dishwashers are extremely innovative. Ranging in capacity from 14 place settings all the way up to 17 place settings, and up to ten spray zones, and a wide range of cycles, these dishwashers clean your dishes to perfection, and then dry them with a turbo fan drying system that eliminates the need for hand drying. Their patented self-cleaning, triple filtration system removes debris, preventing it from re-depositing on your dishes, and their dual pump system ensures that clean and dirty water never mingle.

Now, ASKO even makes your holiday entertaining easier with a plate-warming feature. Because gourmet chefs agree that hot food is best served on a hot plate, ASKO created the Crockery program, which can be used to heat plates before a dinner party.

Once you are sure you know how to load your dishwasher, be sure you are using the right dishwasher. ASKO has been in the business of manufacturing quality appliances for over sixty years, and they can provide the perfect dishwasher for your needs.
