None and have no plans to start. My dishwasher is usually full of dishes! I empty it just to refill it! It rarely sits there empty to cook a meal.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Hmm...I am the dishwasher in these parts.

With TOU electricity rates, I run the dishwasher in the middle of the night, if I run it at all during the week. Otherwise, I use it on weekends when the TOUs are the lowest. I'm not about to start cooking in the DW. But a friend's dad used to run his hub cabs through the DW.
