Dishwashing Woes

We have really been dealing with a battle in the kitchen these days. Actually it’s been going on for at least a year. We purchased a new dishwasher in 2006. However, it doesn’t work. That’s right, it doesn’t do it’s one job and that is to wash dishes. Who knows if we had a warranty because we can’t find the paperwork. Anyway, lesson learned, make sure you keep all of those warranties in one place folks!

Fast forward to last week: the hubby and I to a trip to Lowes, and spoke to the gentleman in kitchen appliances. Yes, the children were with us, and, yes, they were less than enthused to be there. Anyway, the guy tells us that the dishwasher we had was just about the worst out there and he won’t sell it to anyone unless it’s perhaps a landlord that needs a dishwasher for a rental fast. Okay, so it was cheap, but we were trying to save money. Well, as they say, you get what you pay for.

I’m proud to say that yesterday though our new dishwasher arrived. It’s wonderful. It washes the dishes. Can you believe it? So, for now, no more rinsing the dishes, putting them in the dishwasher and then haven’t to rewash. I think this one may actually do its job. Oh, and it’s a water saver one too boot—which is a plus!

I’m excited about a dishwasher; excited enough to blog about it. I think I’m officially old now.

after never being able to find the book/receipt/warranty - we started a new system. After we get home with a new purchase, I take the receipt, make a copy of it, staple the original to the booklet and put it in an accordion file (file under correct subject, please!) It's saved our butt more than once, and it's easy to pack- they are all together...
