this must be one of those things from chimdhood that's been implanted in my brain, much like a bird sings tbeir parents' song, but i prefer to wash dishes by hand (for tje most part) because that's how my mom did it.

ypu know for sure that they are done right. no bits left on. no dried soap or minerals dried in vertical recesses.

it's just better.

like an amplifier that goes to 11...

For the most part I agree. Things that have a lot of nooks and crannies or places you can't get to are better in the dishwasher, like one of those folding steamers.

I still wash a lot of stuff by hand: most of the crystal glasses, the silverware (silver, not regular cutlery), my enamelled cast iron pots, the wooden cutting board, etc.

I enjoy hand dishwashing better when the counter has an edge slightly higher than the main, flat part. The one I have now is completely flat and if I wash a lot of stuff, I always end up with the front of my shirt soggy. I hate that.
