Pretty ridiculous, right? Who designed this and thought "It loads 6 plates. That'll be great."? And why did the previous homeowner buy it? Our new dishwasher is definitely a different story. Our new dishwasher holds at least 10 place settings. The bottom rack has ample room for plates, pots and big bowls. The top rack has space for the numerous glasses, sippy cups and bowls we use throughout the day. The silverware caddy is in the door but can fit in the bottom rack. It took awhile for us to get used to everything the new dishwasher could hold. If we were behind on dishes and the sink was overflowing, we'd think "Great. That'll take at least two loads to clean." We were always pleasantly surprised when all of the dishes fit in one load. Here is a picture of the new dishwasher.
Much better, right? The best part about buying our new dishwasher was how we paid. I had won a health contest at work. I decided to take the $300 I received and buy the new dishwasher. Overall it has made life so much easier. The dishwasher is the working woman's best friend. So much time is freed up by using a dishwasher. I can be playing with Katherine and "washing" the dishes at the same time.
So, my faithful readers, what do you think of my dishwasher?
