high efficiency model
sunday morning, we carefully avoided the kitchen full of dirty dishes.
we went out to breakfast.
after breakfast, j suggested that i buy that dishwasher i've been planning to get. so i did. it arrived this morning.
it's a portable, just like both of my grandmothers had. it's (pretty much) the first time i've had a dishwasher since i moved out of my mom's house, about 18 years ago.
it's... very novel. a big box of electricity and water is sitting in my house. i guess that's not much different from a washing machine.
i have to say that it is nice not to have to hand wash that big stack o' dishes. my back always hurts when i do a lot of dishes all at once, and there's no place to dry them all.
anyway, this is an improvement in a lot of ways... i'll gain some counter space, and of course dirty dishes can be stored in the washer rather than on the counter.
perhaps boring to some people but quite exciting to me :)

Are you kidding? I've never looked back since buying mine, and for all the same reasons.

Dishwashers frickin' rock. Feel no shame in rejoicing -- or else feel shame for both of us while I remember dancing around the house for two days singing "I've got a dish...washer!" after replacing one that had been dead for a year or so.

i've already done two loads. what did i do with the extra time i had? a little knitting, which i never have time to do! wow.
it's pretty sweet :)
i like how the dishes come out all perfectly clean and hot and dry.

I'd never live without one again. I hate doing dishes by hand. I'd rather not eat at all than hand wash.
