A dish-washing dishwasher.

I’ve never had one, have you?

Pretty sure we’ve lived in at least fifteen homes with fourteen different dishwashers (not counting replacements purchased) and I have YET to own a dishwasher that can literally wash dishes, as in clean off those infamous “stuck on messes..”

You know the messes I’m talking about..the little bits of food your significant other leaves on the plates that wind up getting ‘baked’ on during the drying cycle.

Those stuck on messes..

“What’s the point of having a dishwasher..” my honey-hubby will ask in sheer frustration “if we have to wash the plates before we put them in?

“Good question,” is the always answer, “just do it.”

But seriously, what IS the point of having a dishwasher if the plates, silverware and cups are already squeaky clean going into the machine?


Sure..I’ll bite. I don’t know how hot we all think the water gets, but there’s a part of me that believes this whole dish-washing dishwasher concept is a conspiracy..one giant hoax funded by Maytag, Samsung, the Prego spaghetti sauce people and the federal government that requires manufacturers produce machines that only use two tablespoons of water.

No wonder the ‘normal’ cycle takes half a day.

All joking aside, would we buy a washing machine if we had to clean off all our clothes in the sink first?

Our lastest, fancy-schmansy, eco friendly, low water usage, over-priced dishwasher is so quiet you can’t even tell it’s doing anything.

I’m pretty sure that’s because it isn’t.

    Nothing, I repeat, nothing, is ever improved after the government decides it needs to be regulated. I think think the time is fast approaching when we just need to hand wash our dishes and be done with it…..

      I am basically already doing them by hand.. that’s the frustration. I ought to just stack them in the dishwasher to dry..but at this point, it’s like I’m brainwashed into running it..for some reason!
