I am definitely thankful to have a diswasher, because I didn’t always have one. The dishwashers I’ve owned have sometimes been ones that came with the house and were sometimes ones I shopped for. As I’m sure you know, all dishwashers are not alike.
After having owned a few, these are my “must-haves” when shopping for a dishwasher—
First, it has to get the dishes clean. Isn’t that a dishwasher’s number one job? If you have to pre-wash your dishes or you wind up scraping dried-on food off your dishes when they’re done, why do you even have a dishwasher?
Next, I want my dishwasher to be quiet. Like many, if not most, of you, my kitchen is open to the rest of my house. I have had dishwashers that were so noisy I could only start them right before we all went upstairs to bed.
Finally, it’s nice to open up the dishwasher at the end of the cycle, and have the dishes not only be clean, but dry! You should be able to put the dishes away without having to dry them first.
If your dishwasher isn’t doing its job, check out the Bosch AutoAir™ 500 Series Dishwasher. It has everything on my must-have list and more!
