While most dishwashers have a heated dry or dry assist option, the interior tub of your dishwasher has a hand in how quickly your dishes dry. Most dishwashers have a plastic interior tub; however, plastic interior tubs can stain or develop odors, especially when it comes to hard water or tough food stains. Unlike plastic tubs though, stainless steel interior tubs resist hard water stains. Invest in a dishwasher with a stainless steel interior tub for its efficiency and durability. Unlike plastic interior dishwasher tubs, stainless steel interior tubs are more durable because they resist corrosion better than other metals and are stronger than plastic. Another advantage of a stainless steel dishwasher tub is that the stainless steel interior also retains heat better than plastic, which results in superior drying time. Even with a heated dry or dry assist option, stainless steel reflects heat more efficiently.
Say you're throwing a dinner party in the evening or want to wash dishes during the transition from dinner to dessert, how quickly your dishes wash and dry in your dishwasher is important. You don't want to spend your afternoon waiting for a few hours for your dishes to wash and dry before you can set the table. Before you purchase a dishwasher, make sure you look into how long each cycle runs and how effectively the express cycle, should your dishwasher have it, cleans. Not all dishwashers have a heated dry or dry assist option. However, one of the benefits of a stainless steel interior dishwasher tub is that the heat from the water is retained and reflected to dry your dishes. Remember, glass and ceramic dishes and cups dry faster than plastic too.
