      Checked. I don't hate it. Doing them can be relaxing to me even, like the zen aspect. But my hands developed eczema because of it lately.

        Stop using such harsh dish soaps and such hot water.

      I was in the same situation when I moved out, hated handwashing dishes, finally got a small dishwasher. Didn't really feel like it saved me any time as a single guy, since you have to soak/prewash the dishes anyway. I just got over it and handwash everything now. Idk what eczema is though, but good luck with it.

      Looks like an ancient wirlpool. I'd go modern, less confusing racks, better heating element and more efficient.

    meh if you're single you might not fill up the dishwasher fast enough for it to be viable, unless you have a lot of dishes you can use or are okay with running small loads. I would just keep handwashing personally, I think it's relaxing and it's really not that much work. try to get some done while you have stuff cooking on the stove or whatever. put some music on. it's chill.

      I fill up mine every couple of days, so I am running it like 2-3 times a week. It's easy to insta-fill it when you are cooking something complicated too that needs prep dishes.

      You don't need to prewash jack shit. I shove em in dirty, they come out clean. The main thing is ensuring you clear off big stuff into the trash can first. Soaks are only if you stick crap onto stuff so bad you need to loosen it up to clear it off, and that is essentially pans only. Since you have a day or two between washes, soaks are easy.

      If you have room next to the sink, it's worth it. Especially when company is over and later if you choose to expand your family.

    I have had a dishwasher for 8 years and not once have I ever used it. It has zero purpose for a single person.

    Not that useful as a single person unless you plan to be hosting a lot of dinner parties.

    You single morons do realize you can just run the dishwasher once or twice a week, right? You don't have to run it daily or whatever. Never prewash my shit, just scrap bigger stuff into the trash and never had anything come out bad that wasn't my fault for positioning it poorly.
    Sure it may "only" take 5m to wash up after dinner, but you could spend 20 seconds instead and then 5m unloading it a week later. You also use far less soap, water, and energy(even if you only run the tap for like 60 there's all that hot water in the pipe going cold that you paid to heat).

      I only have so many dishes & utensils is the thing, I use a lot of stuff every day or other day. so when I already got the soapy water out to clean that stuff I may as well finish off the like one plate and fork that are left over

      I'm under impression that dishwashers will rinse the plates, at most, so if pans/plates require any kind of scrubbing, you're going to have to do it by hand anyway, so what's the point
      the few times I tried to use it I've had to wash half by hand again
      maybe I'm too moronic to use the thing though

        Older dishwashers were often weak or poorly designed. Current dishwashers do a pretty good job unless you have something that's really stuck on hard. They have built-in disposals to grind up anything large that comes off your dishes, though you should clean the filter out from time to time. Rinsing can be counterproductive because modern dishwashers are very efficient in water use and also have sensors that detect the level of debris in the water and use that to set the duty cycle. If you have a couple of dishes that have something stuck on them but the rest have all the easy stuff rinsed off, you'll trick the dishwasher into using a lighter cycle than is needed.

    On your own, and you don't have one already? No, don't bother unless you're the type of extreme 'hoarder' who doesn't clean anything until literally have nothing left to use.
    Mine broke a while back and I found it easier to just use a squirt bottle of concentrate and hot water from the sink to wash the handful of dishes I was using. It also means you can get it over with straight away.

    washing dishes by hand is meditative activity - its literally you organizing your life against the chaos of the world. imagine being bother by having to wash dishes? its a great way to take care of yourself.

    I let my dog degrease and desauce my dishes. Takes all the hassle out of not having a dishwasher.

    They have those cool countertop dish washers that hook up to your water line. You could get one of those.

    I personally hate dishwashers. They leak, require maintenance, can get backed up from the disposal, my current one smells and has mold on the racks. Top it all off, they don't clean everything unless you prewash which begs the question of not handwashing everything to begin with.

    They're so much fricking trouble in my experience. I just take fifteen minutes out of my time when I cook to do the dishes, just like a nice shower it's meditative.
