Dishwashers for small families
What's the most energy efficient approach for washing dishes for a family of 2?
We dirty 2 place settings (2 dinner plates, 2 bowls and 2 small plates)/day. Our dishwasher holds 5 or 6 days of dishes. We only own 6 place settings, not enough to run a full load.
We live in a condo, don't pay for water usage (hot or cold).
Currently we wash by hand and use the dishwasher as a drying rack. We probably run the dish washer a couple of times a year.
I wonder if one of the new drawer-sized dish washers would work better. We're planning construction on a weekend home where we would only generate one full load a month.
