    six people in the house, once a day. now only two people in the house, I don't use it all. I never put saucepans, or Tupperware in the dishwasher. or even the sharp knives, or the other utensils. I have lived without one, so I will quite often forget that it is even there. marie.

    There are 3 of us and we run it every second day.

    I still wash a small number of items by hand (saucepans etc.).

    3 of us and we run it daily. And still have heaps of hand washing up to do. I'd consider running it twice a day but so much stuff needs to be washed by hand. I make everything from scratch too - it does add up.

    Clothes washing is worse. Omg can not imagine once we have this baby I'll be living between the dishwasher and washing machine 😂

    Its just me and daughter and I run it mostly every other day.
    I cook from scratch as I put just about everything I can into it.
    Minus the global knives and my wooden cutting board it pretty much all goes in

    I am amazed at those who cook/prepare 3 meals a day and don't need to run it every day. I put everything in - if it doesn't go in the dishwasher (or washing machine) it goes in the bin. But cooking a meal I use knives, cutting board, usually at least 2 saucepans, plates, cutlery etc as a minimum, then there is lunch boxes, glasses breakfast plates. It's usually full at night and some things are left out.

    I have 4 kids. Three are at school every day so only 2 meals a day cooked here. My youngest usually has sandwiches or toasted sandwiches for lunch. Lunch boxes washed and dried in sun each afternoon.

    Mostly breakfast is in the thermomix. So no dishwasher there. Dinner usually thermomix too or saucepans and chopping boards. None of these go through the dishwasher. I'm particular about knives and saucepans and wash those by hand.

    I won't put mine through unless it's completely full. And if I'm filling a sink to wash pots pans etc I might wash a few extra things to save the dishwasher.

    Once a day. I put it on at night and empty it in the morning. And every day I do a load of washing too. It builds up quickly if I don't. There are 4 of us.
