Washing dishes at the sink can be a Zen-like ritual-or at least a way to get your hands warm and your fingernails clean. But automatic dishwashers have their benefits, too, and not just for the busy and the lazy. Used wisely, modern automatics consume

I don't use mine any more. Just me now and it's quick and easy to wash for one.

I don't have a dishwater. This article does raise a question though. Does anyone know how they cleaned the dishes and the uniforms on Star Trek or STNG? Just asking....

I don't have a dishwasher, but nice to see the market improving for such products.

I don't have one anymore. Don't miss it as it was rarely used.

I agree Kit - it's just something I dust.

On the old Queen Mary and Lizzie. there were no dish washers except the "Scullingers". Lined up at vast sinks. When a dish towel was too wet it was thrown over the shoulder to land on the deck where one other, Steward, even lower on the pecking order, scooped them up for the laundry. Just imagine. there was over a thousand crew, and three thousand passengers, minimum three meals a day. Now envisage the untreated sewage and waste being dumped (at night) every night, and from every ship in the world, well not on the ships in which I served , we dumped it during the day. At least the sharks were well fed.

Mine broke a couple years and I've never replaced it. Was never too thrilled with the results anyway and it used too much electricity. I LIKE hand-washing and it's quick with only two at home now.
