Heatworks launched its latest home appliance, Tetra, an internet-connected compact countertop dishwasher. No plumbing is need and can be placed and used anywhere with a standard electrical outlet and Ideal for smaller household. If a two-person household were to switch from hand washing to a dishwasher for one meal a day, they could save 1500 gallons of water a year.
There are no faucet connections required and water is loaded by hand so users know exactly how much water is being used - about a half a gallon per load. There is also an internal detergent reservoir that will last dozens of cycles. And the coolest feature? Tetra is transparent so you can see exactly where in the dishwashing cycle it is.
