What kitchen chore do you detest the most? I hate emptying the dishwasher and or putting dishes away out of the drain rack. I would rather spend 30 minutes washing dirty dishes then five minutes putting away clean dishes.

Cooking is a big NO NO for me. hahaha. It's okay for me to prepare the ingredients needed and be an assistant of my mother while cooking but I really don't like to be the one who's doing 'real cooking' in front of the stove. I don't know why but i prefer washing dishes.

When you say a big NO NO do you mean your not allowed to cook or you just hate to cook?

oops sorry to confuse you. Yep i'm allowed to cook. It's just that I'm not interested in it. I object at home whenever my mother asks me to do so.

That's just is rhane, I don't mind doing the dishes, the part I hate is putting them up. It takes longer to wash them then putting them away, yet I can't stand that part. The good thing is, I now have that as one of my son's chores. I make him put them away lol

Why do you suppose that is? You with silverware, me with putting up dishes, we would rather spend more time doing something gross than doing something quick and simple. I wonder if it's something in our past????

Could be. But i had rather think that it is because we are unique. So there.

Thanks for the best response. I really need to go through some of my unresolved discussions.

Using a dishwasher. I find it time consuming to load, wasteful of water, and takes WAY too long to get the dishes all cleaned up. I can hand wash the whole lot in a sink and be done long before the dishwasher. I have saved time, water, and expensive dishwasher chemicals. I have also had fun satisfying my logical processing of things: plates first, glasses next, cutlery (sorted into knives, forks, spoons to make them go faster and easier to dry and put away), pots/pans/misc. Such a satisfying feeling when I'm done. Clean cupboards, no having to come back to unload and put away in an hour or so.

lol, When we bought this house I told my husband I didn't think we needed to order a dishwasher. I had never had one before. He was insistant that I have one even if I chose not to use it. I wouldn't give it up for anything now. Sometimes I will completely stop using it, then I'll go back to it. One thing I like is being able to fill it all through out the day. Around here they feed all day long which is annoying and it leaves me with glasses, saucers and all kinds of dishes piling up. I just fill the dishwasher as I go through the day. At the end of the day I set it on rinse, then wash. My son is old enough now, and I have him unload it, which he thinks is just awful.

I wonder why unloading is such a chore? Dishwashers, at least the non-commercial ones, don't hold that much. And it doesn't take that long to unload.
