Jun 21st 2010 1:35PM Marie, you're confusing dishwasher efficiency with energy efficiency. If you're going to run your dishwasher, then to maximize the benefit, fill it up. If you want to be more energy efficient, then rinse, set the temp low - and fill it up. Washing by hand gives you more overall control of energy & water consumed. Use luke warm water & turn it off when you soap up your dishes, then rinse them all at once.
