I complained before about the new dishwasher in our house when we moved in four years ago. As a matter of fact, I called that post "The Worst Dishwasher in the World" and I still stand by that. The dishwasher never worked well, so when it quit working in September, we didn't even think about fixing it. We waited out college payments and study trips abroad, tax payments and fixing the dent in the side of the car after it got hit in a parking lot and no one bothered to leave a name. Then finally, in this brief respite between college payments, we had the car dent fixed and, after much research, I dragged Earl into an HH Gregg where we picked out this sleek and lovely dishwasher. It isn't top of the line, but it washes the dishes, which is more than I can say for the previous dishwasher. And it's stainless steel, so it matches the rest of the appliances in the kitchen.
Yesterday, Earl spent the day installing it while I got a haircut then went to a track meet. When I got home, the dishwasher was humming along nicely. I took the opportunity to clean the sink and prepared to remind my children, who have been happily dumping dishes in the sink for months, to place them in the dishwasher instead. I'm so happy!
Hope something good happened to you this weekend. I can't believe you'll top the new dishwasher though.
