We’ve updated this story to reflect the current legal status of the “fast dishwasher” class. We’d implied that no models are currently available because the DOE hasn’t yet set any rules for them yet, based on information we received from the DOE itself; however, the actual rule is that “fast dishwashers” are “not currently subject to energy or water conservation standards.” Still, no dishwasher brand has actually released a “fast dishwasher” yet, and the rule is under review by the Biden administration.
In October 2020, the Trump administration passed a new rule for dishwasher efficiency, claiming that it would undo “burdensome regulations” that made dishwashers slow and weak, and that it would “allow Americans to wash dishes in under an hour!” Donald Trump himself even boasted on the campaign trail: “Now you can buy a dishwasher and it comes out beautiful.”
