I question to sanitary nature of that scheme. Degerming is a real process and tends to take real amounts of water. Add to that concern the base line energy it takes to keep you running and you may have a more complex situation on your hands. Add to that the fact that you are just one guy, dishes for a family means more dishes. You could just eat off dirty dishes too, but it wouldn't be advisable.

However, it offers something I love and so I'll always have one even if it isn't hooked up to water. You see it hides the dishes! And frees up my sinks and counters - bonus!

I forgot something. It would be very interesting to see two or three trials run. Number one hand washing as demonstrated. Second, a good but more run of the mill, likely to be found in most homes machine. Third the super duper Bosch. Run the same size and same amount of dirty dishes through all three. Then swab the dishes and run cultures. Also run a fourth set of cultures off some plates that have been sitting there in the cupboard for a few days, or a week. Also devise some test to determine if soap residue is rinsed as complete by the hand method vs the machines.
I personally don't think there are going to be any significant numbers of bacteria found on the freshly washed and dried dishes, either hand or machine. I do wonder about the soap rinse. As Paul stated some folks are too concerned, overly concerned, on bacteria counts. I despise all those anti-bacterial hand soaps as for normal use they are not necessary. Some say they may be doing actual harm, contributing to development of "super bugs". I'm all for my surgeon following a strict hygiene routine before operating on me, but they are overkill for everyday use. That's just my opinion, yours may differ.
