Helpful Homemaking tip...:
A lot of dishwashers are starting to replace plastic tubing with stainless-steel tubing. Although they are a little more costly, they are also more efficient while going through drying cycles and are easier to maintain. Employing a low-watt heating element, these units save energy and help to protect heat-sensitive items on lower racks. By having a well insulated stainless steel interior, a dishwasher can use a 450 watt drying element instead of the more standard 600-750 watt types.
