also unless you're hand-washing dishes in cold water they save energy because heating water takes energy

I used to handwash them, my water is relatively expensive and I realized that the dishwasher is way cheaper. Also if you get newer units they're super efficient and can run a cycle for like 5 gallons or something, can't be beat.

also the reason they don't work well is because they use the pods instead of powder/gel detergent you need to use some in the pre-wash outside of the dispenser so that soap hits the dishes twice
