Dishwashers have come a long way since Josephine Cochran1 patented the very first “dish washing machine” in 1886 after growing tired of the tedious task of handwashing dishes. This appliance plays a critical role in just about everyone’s home — especially during the pandemic when families were stuck inside and dishes were piling up faster than usual.
With many homeowners expected to retain a work from home schedule2 at least for part of the week, and as wellness remains a top priority3, consumers will continue to rely on the dishwasher to keep the heart of the home clean and organized.
