How often do you run your dishwasher?

I guess I would say I run mine every two or three days. There are only two of us here, and some days we don't make many dishes so we don;t need to run it on a daily basis at all.

I simply hated it when my dishwasher was broken. I like dishwashers because you can just throw the dishes in there and get them sanitized. I love sparkling dishes that gleam.

Sometimes daily. Rarely twice in one day. I have a family of 5.

@snowy22315 it all depends on if I have dishwasher detergent on hand and how many meals we eat at home. We try to eat at home often, but when there are family dinners, we usually aren't the hosts.

I don't possess a dishwasher - they are not standard in the UK, though they are becoming more popular.

We run ours about every second day. Sometimes it seems to be mostly full of coffee cups :)

I can relate to the coffee cup thing! There sure seem to be a lot of them around!

Wow! I guess Im lucky I only have to run it about once per week if even. Guess I dontake many dishes but I am also flying solo with no kids and no spouses. There are advantages. Lol

We'll do a dishwasher once every couple of days. Although there are times when we have to wash something by hand, as we are five here, and we tend to make sure the dishwasher is full before we start it.
