Water Blade for Tuff Stains

Scrubbing is a very important factor when cleaning dishes and this has to be done perfecto! There’s no way around it. Keeping this in mind, Domus student Pietro Russomanno designed the KEWA concept, an acronym for Kinetic Efficient Water Appliance. It’s basically a dishwasher that uses air pressure to direct water through kinetic jets to create a ‘water-blade’ that cleans the greasiest of stains.

I love its compact, counter-top minimalist design helping it to blend into the kitchen space. However, my only worry is the fate of delicate china but we all know those should always be hand washed anyways.

    • If I understand this, you can only clean one dish at a time in it? And what about larger pots, pans and baking dishes, which in my experience usually have the hardest to remove post-cooking detritus. Compact is good, but I'm not sure if this isn't wasteful and missing the mark.

        No, it looks like it can hold multiple plates and maybe a pot. Look at the diagram of the Dish Drawer at the bottom, there are grooves which show where the plates and pan fit in

        Yes, it's one dish at a time… but it needs 10 seconds and just a couple of strokes.
        The amount of water saved it's a lot because the water it's vaporized and the energy requested it's very little compared with a normal dishwasher. The container is able to fit a medium size pot or a medium size pan. For bigger dishes there is the gun always using high pressure water..

        I feel its missing the mark too; maybe integrate more jets on the other two ends, so that multiple plates can be washed. The Glass shot is neat but seems pointless if the exterior of the glass happen to be sticky or dirty, but i guess its just for rinsing hay? Some kinks to work out, but otherwise good idea.

    • The challenge is that the water blades come in from the side and won't work if there's anything between them and the plate or other element.

      I've never been a fan of the minimalistic-dishwasher concept, as they always seem aimed for the person who lives alone and eats everywhere but home. But as a strict for-stuck-on-gunk, which usually takes several minutes of handwashing after soaking for a bit, I can get behind this. However, having it default to being integrate with the sink? Heavens no. This would be perfect for the edge of the kitchen, maybe attached to the dishwasher itself (probably horizontally), or integrated into a kitchen set, similar to the KitchenScape by Astro Studios
