I am talking about actual dishwashers, not your kids or your husband LOL


I was talking to my brother the other day and it came out that I hardly ever use my dishwasher.

Oh my gosh, you're a nut! LOL! I went two years without a dishwasher, and it was torture. DH finally surprised me with a beautiful sparkling new one for Mother's Day this year, and every single day I think about how glad I am to have it! :D

Don't be afraid to run it half full if that is what works for you. Even half full uses way less water and energy than hand washing your dishes.

Ours runs at least once per day and some days twice.

My answer to that is to buy more dishes! I do pretty much anything to avoid washing by hand. It seems like it takes more time, effort and water to wash by hand, plus they are far more sanitary coming out of the dishwasher.

I use the dishwasher just about everyday. I can't stand washing dishes by hand! When we built our new house i made sure to get a good dishwasher b/c the one we had at our previous house was loud and didn't dry the dishes very well. We have a Kenmore Elite and i LOVE it!

I wish there had been an option for "hell yes!"

I love my diswasher, and I live in mortal fear of it breaking because they installed our counter over it (previous owners) in a way that would make it impossible to replace. **shudder**

My in laws are like you, they don't use theirs either.

OMGOSh mine runs daily!!!!! I cant remember the last time I washed a dish - other than some of Joe's stuff that Im afraid will melt in there..

Im with Holly - it costs less to run it half full than to wash by hand (well it wastes less water, anyway). I run mine half full all the time - on the quick cycle.

I run it daily (family of 6), but I still ran it every other day with less of us.

And I will run it on the Economy/Delicate cycle if it's not completely full & it runs in way less time & still gets the dishes clean.
