Dishwasher, an innovation of the 20th century is now a part of the home appliances in the 21st century which is really very quick.

Earlier the only problem for washing the dishes was scarcity of water. As the water was not readily available people had to carry them to places where there was enough water supply so that the utensils could have been washed. One of the alternate methods was to carry water in various tubs and buckets to the place where the utensils were kept. The no. of dishes and their types which were used earlier were also very less. With the passing time, indoor water supply took place which made bathing, washing clothes and utensils easy.

The first dishwasher was invented in the year 1850 which consumed steam power and hot water in order to clean numerous dishes at a time. The notion of water spraying through jets was developed by, C. E Hope-Vere in the year 1875. Earlier the dishwasher used to slosh water on the dishes which led to wastage of water. Another basic idea of spraying water through jets which are used today was introduced by, A.

W. Bodell in the year 1906. In 1915 the first dishwasher model was introduced but was not very common among the households till the year 1930. Refrigerators took over dishwashers as refrigerators were introduced at the same time. Refrigerators are of greater importance than dishwashers as preserving food is more important. The dishwashers which were invented at that point of time were also not a success.

The dishwashers were not at a fault rather the detergents used then were faulty. By the year 1950 better and special detergents were introduced which were used in the dishwasher that helped in cleaning the utensils thoroughly, after which the public showed greater interest in the dishwashers. Dishwashers that are fully automated is still not much in fashion but by the year 1970 dishwasher was something on which the women started relying on.
