Well, since I don't own antique Mexican pottery or Teakwood service or bone-handled anything like Geraldine does on pg. 1 of this post, I absolutely LOVE my dishwasher. I put stemware in it, but I don't put my good knives in it. I'll even do a load of china on a gentle cycle with air dry and not touch it until it's cool. I figure you only go around once, and if the gold comes off my china by the time I'm 80, so be it...at least I'll be able to say I made it to 80.

I do my birdwatching here in my home office, while I type these posts, and the dishwasher is in there doing the washing up without any complaints. What more could one ask for?

I kind of like doing my dishes.. I know it's weird but, I love playing in the hot soapy water. I have a heater vent right under the sink too.. so I get to me nice and warm. It's a good thing at least during the winter.

I just saw this thread and am sure everyone is completely delighted by now that they have mastered the clean up process and enjoy it so thoroughly. However, I've found those little brushes that hold the detergent inside are the handiest trick to quick kitchen cleanup. I use mine to clean spoons or cooking forks that get icky, my calphalon pans, including the lids, whatever really dirty things that I don't want to go in the dw or even before they go in. I've used it to clean spillovers on the stove, to clean the sink after washing up everything else. I even put one in my bathroom to keep the vanity sink nice and tidy. Hope this helps someone enjoy the task a bit.
