Before talking about this Dayoo Kitchen and steam, let me spend a few words of love for the contemporary "traditional" dishwasher ... It suits me: the homework is up to me, the family guy who "feeds" it every night It's me. However, I do not deny that it has enormous flaws.
Which? Well, one of all: it is basically a car wash for dishes. No? It simply sprays hot water in every direction, trying to remove food and dirt: it does not focus on the stains because it cannot "see" them, and it wastes a lot of water trying to clean all the dishes regardless of how many and how they are arranged .
Better to wash them in the sink?
Lifetime. It is much more resource efficient because it uses an adequate amount of water. The problem of stains does not arise: with our natural intelligence we work harder where it is needed. Did I say "let's work"? Here you are. As if during the day we were with our hands in our hands. It can not be done. You have no idea how many dirty dishes a family of three with a four-year-old girl can produce and dirty things just by LOOKING at them.
That's why my ears pricked up when I discovered this Dayoo Kitchen. With its appearance as an electric car charging point, this "portable" dishwasher fits on the kitchen counter and is the fusion of both methods: it washes like (better?) A dishwasher, but by hand and in no time.
Dayoo Kitchen uses a 105 ° C (221 ° F) high pressure steam jet to clean and sterilize dishes. Tiny droplets of hot water that blow dirt out of dishes in seconds without soaking, soaping and scrubbing.
Make love with steam
Hot steam does a better job of removing grease and food from plates and spoons, and the aerated nozzle uses less water than any conventional tap, saving time and resources in the process. According to the manufacturer, Dayoo spraying dishes is as simple as watering the plants.
Dayoo is designed to provide an alternative to the large and expensive dishwashers available on the market, which consume water and energy. Not everyone has enough space or money for a dishwasher but everyone needs to wash the dishes, so the Dayoo combines the key benefits of dishwashers in a small, affordable appliance.
How does the Dayoo Kitchen steam dishwasher work?
The whole device is as simple as it sounds. A hand shower allows you to spray tools, while a pressure wall module cleans and heats the water. The entire system has a single continuous dial that controls the amount of water pressure, as well as a trigger on the hand shower that allows hot steam to be directed onto the dishes. Dayoo, as mentioned, can heat water up to 105 ° (221 ° F), which raises safety concerns. The company, consulted on this point, however, claims as long as your hand is 10 centimeters (4 inches) away from the nozzle, you are perfectly safe. Sara.
It should also be mentioned that as soon as the steam is "spit" out it cools down to 50 ° C (122 ° F): it always burns a little, but is safe for tools and other objects, while remaining aggressive on stains. The "shower", in short, removes the dirt and then sterilizes the dishes.
Sure, Dayoo is still a manual cleaning tool, but what it lacks compared to an automatic dishwasher it more than makes up for in energy savings, environmental impact and speed.
In case you are interested (as always it is NOT a sponsorship, I have not received any money from the company, I have not received a sample from the company, I have done everything and I will never tire of repeating it) it is closing a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
By the time I found the device, the campaign had already raised over € 200.000 in funds. Dayoo Kitchen will cost $ 249, but there are about 70 pieces left at the price reserved for the first "financiers" of the project.
