In an age where everything is being connected, Heatworks brings us, Tetra, an internet-connected compact countertop dishwasher. It requires no plumbing and can be placed and used anywhere in reach of a standard electrical outlet.
Compact on purpose, the Tetra holds two full place settings (including plates, cups, bowls, and silverware,) or up to 10 plates or 12 full pint glasses. Tetra greatly reduced the size of their design when their research came back to show that the average household is comprised of 2.58 people and the average dishwasher has space for 13 or more place settings. This disconnect was concerning to Heatworks and decided to do something about it – enter their very smart and very green dishwasher.
More research was conducted, considering the wastefulness of handwashing. If a two-person household were to switch from handwashing to dishwashing, only one meal each day, they could save up to 1500 gallons of water in the first year.
With a name like Heatworks, you might expect some impressive technology when it comes to warming your dishes. If so, you’d be correct. Heatworks uses a patented Ohmic Array Technology to eliminate traditional metal heating elements that can rust and scale over time. Instead the Tetra uses graphite electrodes and advanced electronic controls to more effectively and efficiently clean your dishware.
In the final phase of development now, the Tetra will be on shelves in late 2018, for a very affordable $300.00.
