Use a dishwasher or hand wash the dishes?

I would MUCH rather wash the dishes by hand, probably because I've never had a dishwasher and I'd still try to wash the goofy things by hand first! Maybe I would love a dishwasher.. oh who knows!! What do YOU prefer?!

  • By hand is better!! Even when using a dishwasher, you have to wash them!

  • I use my dishwasher, but I've never minded washing dishes by hand. Sometimes, I prefer to wash by hand if it means I have to unload the clean dishes out of the dishwasher before I can reload.

  • Dishwasher, although I practically wash the dishes before they go in!

  • I love my dishwasher. I could not live without it. I give my dishes a quick rinse before putting them in the dishwasher and they come out so clean.

  • I use the dishwasher mostly. If the dishwasher is full or I have a very large dish that will take up alot of room I wash it by hand. I like having a dishwasher but I don't mind handwashing if it were to

  • My dishwasher SUCKS, so we pre-wash our dishes, then put them in the dishwasher! We basically wash them by hand, I dont know why we even use the dishwasher! Maybe just for reassurance :)

  • I prefer the diswasher but I was my pots and pans by hand. I really don't have room to put the dishes anywhere when I wash by hand either-before you dry them or let them dry.

  • dishwasher but mines broken so its dishpan hands for me these days, the first thing we did when we bought our house was put a top of the line dishwasher in, too many years of renting with no dishwashers.
