    Default Re: Do I need a dishwasher?

    We dont have a dishwasher

    I have had one before and tbh by the time i rinsed the dishes, stacked the dishwasher then took them all out again it was still alot of work, seemed easier sometimes to just wash them by hand!

    I dont think anyone *needs* one but they are nice to have

    If something is burnt/really filthy etc, i might soak it in water on the sink overnight then load it in next morning.

    And if the dishwasher doesn't get it clean the first time... well you just give it another wash in the next cycle LOL

    The only thing i dont put in there is my cast iron casserole dish cos it is too big and heavy... but pretty much everything else is fair game. Nothing ruined yet
    I've got you beat.. My mother got her electric Fry an for her first wedding in 1967... I still put it in the Dishwasher today the cord is a bit old and dodgy but I cannot find a replacement.

    The only thing I don't put in there is anodized items (cake & pie tins) and raw wood items.


    Oh Also my Piping bags & Rolling pin. Everything else goes in there..

    I consider mine a necessity as I cut myself often washing up (knives, glasses spontaneously breaking) and If i keep going I will nick a nerve and that will be the end of that.

    AND I have the new Bosh.. the Cutlery Draw is Awesome. Never want to use a Cutlery Basket again.

    We have a Siemens which is also made by Bosch. I love it. It has a cutlery drawer and a basket, but TBH we have never used the basket. When we got it I was sure I was going to hate the drawer as I was used to a basket. Boy was i wrong.

    Default Do I need a dishwasher?

    I would be screwed without mine. I renovated my kitchen and I only put one small round sink in with a drainer. What was I thinking!!! Don't wash anything up.

    Default Do I need a dishwasher?

    I have a dishwasher and never use it!!! Honestly I'd rather wash everything by hand twice a day than to have to try and fit everything in the dishwasher.

    I had one in my last place too and used it maybe 8 times in 4 months and that was purely because I found dishwasher tabs in a box lol. Unstacking the dishwasher annoys the crap out of me.

    Electric Fry pan Yes. As long as the contacts are dry when you plug in/ turn on it's A-ok, I checked with Manufacturer.. it had a dirty old cloth covered Cord I would love to replace but Manufacturer are amazed it still works.

    Pipping bags NO. the tips & collars yes not bags. Bags, unfinished wooden items, rolling pins & cake tins are hand wash only. Annoying but I kinda soak it all and do it maybe once a week.. i try to avoid using those things.

    I was so overjoyed when I was advised Silicone bakeware & oven mits can go in there I tossed it all in at once.

    To me it is as essential as a washing machine. It saves a lot of time doing a boring monotonous job and does it way better.
