Heatworks Tetra is a Self Contained Countertop Dishwasher

The new Heatwork dishwasher, the Tetra, offers two interesting advantages for kitchen enthusiasts who want to save. First, this countertop dishwasher is transparent, so you can see exactly how the dishes are being cleaned. Second, it is designed to be used completely without plumbing – there is no need to connect it to a water supply before using it. All Tetra needs is about 3 liters of water which is used in the wash cycle and then drained as gray water.

This allows the Tetra to save a significant amount of water for smaller cleaning jobs and is significantly cheaper than many larger models of dishwashers. That’s an interesting prospect for those living in smaller apartments, dorms or RVs where the dishes have yet to be washed, but space and money are important considerations.

The Tetra is large enough for three full place settings and has a unique detergent cartridge system for cleaning. Choose your preferred program and the cartridge injects the dishwasher with only the amount of detergent needed for the job. There are a total of five settings to choose from for cleaning: Standard, an Eco mode to save water for quick cleanings, a Gentle option for delicate glasses, Plastic mode to prevent plastic from melting, and a Fruit setting to products quickly before use (without detergent). Standard, the longest cycle, is designed to take less than an hour to complete a wash cycle.

When you’re done, the dishwasher also has a drying fan to help dry the dishes if you don’t mind leaving them in the washing machine a little longer.

If you are interested in the Tetra, you can pre-order it from today at a special discounted price of $399. The market price will be set at $499 after pre-orders are completed. However, if you pre-order, you’ll have to wait: shipments are expected to start in May 2022. Also, keep in mind that you’ll need to buy special detergent cartridges for the Tetra, so your favorite Cascade flavor isn’t going to cut it. On the plus side, Heatworks reports that this helps save on chemical use and helps lower carbon consumption.
