washing dishes Our Dishwasher broke a few days ago...  and you really don't realise how much you appreciate it until you can't use it.

 

So Ladies, Do you think having a dishwasher is important? Why or why not?

I used to think so until my SO finally put one in and I ended up just not wanting to unload it, so I would end up just washing the future dishes.  We recently moved into a place that doesn't have one and I'm doing just fine with keeping up with the dishes...so far!

We don't have one. I'd rather keep my cabinet space. However, I do struggle to keep up with dishes, but I think that's more because I don't want to do it while pregnant. I was fine before pregnancy in keeping up.

not important..not passing judgement----but when I was growing up using a dishwasher was considered being lazy..lol...as an adult i rarely use a dishwasher and it seems it doesn't wash the dishes as well as when i do it manually (unless i don't know what the heck i'm doing)...now i only use it as drying rack really..i'm the only one that does the dishes and i wash them daily (sometimes more than once) i can't stand a dirty smelly kitchen--yes i'm anal lol

Definitely important! I hate hand washing dishes but there are certain pans I will hand wash.

I absolutely HATE washing dishes by hand, the house we lived in didn't have a dishwasher and it seemed like there was always a ton of dishes to do. It sucked. I'm so glad our apartment has a dishwasher. If we ever move into a house without one again I'll make sure we install one.

If I were the one who washed dishes, I would say it's a necessity. But DH does the dish washing and he doesn't seem to mind washing them by hand, so we haven't bothered to get a dishwasher.
