The Global Portable Dishwasher Market size is expected to reach $6.4 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 5.5% CAGR during the forecast period.
Portable dishwasher is a device that automatically cleans dishes, cutlery, and cookware. Unlike hand washing, done by hard physical scrubbing to remove dirt from the plates, mechanical dishwashing sprays warm water on the dishes, usually between 45C and 75C (110F and 170F). For delicate cutleries, the temperature is lowered.
A mix of washing detergent and water is supplied to one or more moving sprayer that cleans the plates with the cleansing mixture. The mixture is then recycled to save energy and water. Generally, there is a pre-rinse, which may or may not contains detergent, after which the water is discarded, followed by the primary wash with the mixture of detergent and water.
After the wash, the water is drained out, fresh hot water is added to the tub through an electromechanical solenoid valve, and the washing cycle is repeated until the dishes are clean. Once the rinse process is completed, the water is again drained out, and the wet dishes are dried using one of the many drying methods. Finally, a rinse-aid chemical is added to reduce the surface tension of the water, which helps remove water spots caused by the hard water.
The dishwashers are not just limited to personal usage; they are also utilized in the commercial industry like restaurants and hotels, where there is a need to clean a large number of dishes quickly. The washing is performed in the temperature range of 65 to 71C (149 to 160F). For sanitizing the plate, a booster heater provides a final rinse at a temperature of 82C (180F), or a chemical sanitizer is utilized to make the plates germ free.
