Do you have a dishwasher? How many times a day or a week do you run it? We have one and since there are so many of us and we go thru so many cups and dishes and silverware we have to run it at least once a day, sometimes twice. What about you?

WHen we first re-built our old farmhouse, there was just the 2 of us. When my late hubby asked me if I wanted a dishwasher, I was a dummy and said no....I wasn't thinking about all of the company that we had for holidays! THEN CAME THE TWINS! After my husband passed, and I was refinishing a kitchen project (which the termites decided that they needed for a snack), I chose to put in a dish washer and have not regretted it. We usually load it up before we run it, usually 3 times a week.

I do have a dishwasher. It is only run at our house every other day or so- I wash pots and pans by hand. There are 3 od us and we have alot of dishes so I only run it when it is full. Sometimes it takes a couple days to fill it- Some days I wash all the dishes by hand- when my hands hurt- I love hot soapy water! In the warmer months we order out a couple times a week and have no dishes- I love the dishwasher!

I do have a dishwasher at my house thank god because I hate washing dishes by hand. Between my whole family we dirty up a lot of dishes during the day. The dishwasher will probably run once during the day and then while its running there will be a stack of dishes waiting to get washed on the counter so we usually end up running it twice a day.

We have one, I love it! I have found to cut down on energy, when it hits the drying cycle, just stop it and open it up to let them air dry ;) I usually run it about every other day, sometimes every day. The one in our house is really small compared to other dishwashers so I tend to have to run it more than I used to in our old home.

No dishwasher here unfortunately, for some reason my mom keeps telling there's no space for it... she just should ditch out some of the useless crap she has standing in the kitchen though, like a "microwave table", hell just place it on the dishwasher :P. One thing is for sure, definitely will get one myself later in life, hehe. Hate doing the dishes.

Hi there we have a dishwasher, and I count my lucky stars at times with it =) I have 7 children soon to be 8 and the dishwasher seems to save me a lot of time and work. I tend to use it also once sometimes twice depending on what we have that day =) But again right now I dont think I could live without a dishwasher =) Best wishes and Happy posting Stacy
