What are you doing with yours?

We've figured out what were doing with ours :). We have to repipe the house, rewire our house, building a back deck, putting railing around our front porch, and putting up a fence for our dogs.

It was better than nothing for sure but our kitchen is small.  To use it I had to roll it past the table and put it in the middle of the floor in front of the sink.  It was hard to use the sink while it was running because it was connected.  Then I had to trip over it unloading.  Half of the dishes just had to be piled on the counters until I moved it out of the way so I could put them away.  Then roll it back past the table to put it away.

Quoting mrsledford09:

You didnt like it?

Quoting JasonsMom2007:

That's what we had when we moved here.  I was glad to be rid of it!

Quoting mrsledford09:

Thats good that its helping :) Yes quiet ones are very expensive! I want a portable dishwasher.... :)

Quoting JasonsMom2007:

Well it would be awesome but it will only cover about 1/4 of the cost so...

And my dishwasher is terrible.  It won't turn itself off so we have to babysit it.  It leaks all over the floor.It doesn't clean really well anymore either :(  Plus my son has SPD and I can't run it while he is awake.  It's too loud for him. Quiet ones are expensive!

Quoting mrsledford09:

Awesome! I want 1 so bad lol

Quoting JasonsMom2007:

Starting to save for a new dishwasher. We aren't getting much.

This might interest you-it's the soultion in many cases.

GE Under the Sink Dishwasher — Freedom of Space

GE Under the Sink Dishwasher

Maximize your valuable kitchen space with an under the counter

Trying to fit large appliances in a small kitchen is always trying;
fortunately, there are plenty of smaller sized appliances that are made
specifically for kitchens with less room, like the under the sink dishwasher.

This compact machine fits comfortably under the
shallow side of a standard sink and is specifically designed to make room for
the pipe fittings. But the compact design doesn’t mean that you miss out on dish
space – the capacity to hold up to 10 place settings. It also has many
technological advances as their larger counter-parts, like:

  • 4-level PowerScrub wash system

    Powerful wash cleans dishes thoroughly

  • Two-stage filtration with ExtraFine

    Extra filtration keeps water clean

  • Piranha hard food disposer

    Grinds food into small particles that are washed away

  • HotStart option
    optimal water temperature for dependable

  • Spacemaker® upper rack

    Dishwasher can be installed beneath a sink to maximize
    cabinet space

we are not getting as much as last year :( But this year we will be putting it all into savings except enough to buy a cheap truck off craigslist. So looking to only spend $1000 on it. The other $7000 will go to the bank for getting hubs papers and whatever else we need
