Do You Have a Dishwasher?

As a kid, I took it for granted that everyone had a dishwasher. But now that I'm an urban dweller, I realize that they can be pretty rare.

I put in a new one when I redid my kitchen 2 years ago. I don't cook much and eat sporadically so I've only used my dishwasher a handful of times. It still looks brand new inside.

I lived without one for four years and when we moved, finding a house with a dishwasher was a high priority for me. I use it daily but if I had to, I guess I could live without it again.

Since there is only the two of us..We don't really need one.It doesn't take that long to do up the few dishes we go through.

the only time i wish i had one was when i have a dinner party. other than that, i use really hot water (the gloves protect my hands) and it doesn't take long- just part of my routine of cleaning the kitchen after i've cooked. i think i use less water this way too. usually i wash and my boyfriend dries- it's a good chance to have a chat after being apart all day!

My small apartment doesnt have one! I wish I had one. It cleans the dished a lot better than by hand. I'm a germaphobe so the high heat in the dishwasher is reassuring...

I actually don't mind doing the dishes by hand, is that weird? I find it kinda soothing. I hate drying up though, everything just sits by the sink until I use it again!

we inherited an old portable one when my pal moved into a house with a built-in one. We roll it from the dining area to the kitchen everytime we do dishes, but it's worth the effort. After all, I think this dishwasher is the cornerstone to our relationship, without it we'd probably fight all the time!

I don't have one and I grew up with one (not to mention I barely did any chores as a kid and that is totally biting me in the ass now!) and I miss it sooooo much. I hate dishes and I try not to eat out that often for both my own and my bank account's health...aluminum foil is my friend though!

Yes, it's a necessity in my home. I'm a bit OCD, I use alot of glasses throughout the day. I only wash when its completely full though.

Had a portable for a while, but it broke a few years ago and I didn't replace it because I needed the extra room in the kitchen. Now, I've just finished remodeling my teeny tiny kitchen and have an 18" model installed. Love it! :-)

I do, but it's as old as time. I'm not even sure if we still use it, it's seriously jurassic.

I spent two years in San Francisco without one and I hope I never have to do that again! It saves time and is better for the environment because it uses less water than washing by hand(assuming you run it when full). Can't get much better than that!
