    Yep I have a dishwasher and absolutely love it!!!

    My moved in 4yrs ago and didn't have one for the first 2yr - so painful. Washing dishes is a wasted life.

    But having gone without I know totally love, admire and appreciate my dishwasher - its one of the things that each time I use I am soooooooooooooooooo grateful for.

    oh and i do put some pots and things in it, but i also wash the big pots/bowls/ackward things by hand.

    The next best thing to my dishwasher is a freestanding stainless steel sink/bench thingy with a 60litre sink - makes washing the things you have to wash by hand so much easier.

    I wear gloves when I hand wash (my dish drawer dishwasher doesn't fit large pots and I also hand wash plastics). I like to use really hot water to wash up so there's no way I could do it without gloves.

    I have 2 dish drawers. I love them so much. I fill it up every day. Just turn it on before bed and empty it in the morning.

    I only got one in the last few years since meeting DP and starting f/t work. It never used to bother me when it was just DS and I, there were few dishes as I'd tend to cook in big batches and then eat leftovers most nights lol. Sounds lazy, but for my budget back then it was far more economical to cook in big lots than to cook for one adult and one two-year-old every night.

    DP does the dishes most nights, so he packs the dishwasher but we still tend to hand wash pots, pans and lunchboxes but don't use much water for those because there's not generally many.

    Yep, I've also heard dishwashers use less. Mine certainly does as it's only turned on every few days.

    You could get a standalone one and stick it in the laundry
