DualWash: The Waterless Dishwasher


A group of industrial design students from the Middle East Technical University in Turkey have developed a wall-mounted waterless dishwasher that doubles as a kitchen cabinet.

Conscious of water shortage issues, DualWash uses supercritical carbon dioxide rather than water to clean the dishes, which is pumped into the sealed compartment. This chemical has the density of a liquid but the ability to fill a container in a similar way to a gas, allowing it to cover surface areas easily and clean them effectively.

The two separate sections of the dishwasher allow for dirty dishes to be hidden away behind the sliding door prior to cleaning, while clean dishes can be stored on the other side.

DualWash was developed as part of the Home Heroes design programme, sponsored by Turkish home appliance manufacturer Profilo
