    Default How often do you run your dishwasher?

    It's only myself and my daughter in the house but I have to run it every day and every 3 -4 days I need to run it twice. I cook most meals from scratch and make our lunches each day. It seems to be more than my friends do, but I don't know how I would cut back. I have a near new Bosch dishwasher so it's not the machine and I pack it pretty full.

    I have the F&P dish drawers and run at least one drawer daily sometimes both drawers. There is only DH, 3 yr DS and I. I cook from scratch also.

    There's 3 people in our house. DH...me and DD. I run ours each night without fail.

    Once a day normally and sometimes twice on the weekend.
    On top of this I hand wash most pots and pans because they are too big or I find the dishwasher ruins the nonstick surface.

    6 people in our house and I usually run it 1-2 times a day, once after lunch to do breakfast and lunch dishes, and once after dinner. Occasionally when I've done a big dinner using a lot of pots or my casserole dish I run it twice at night.

    1-2 times a day, sometimes more if I've been baking a lot.

    maybe 2-3 times a week? just dh and I at the moment.

    I've become increasingly lazy and chuck as much in there as I can to avoid washing up by hand.
