"Wow!"

That is what I said (outloud) when I opened my new dishwasher this morning. My dishes have never been so clean. And the premier load even included un-rinsed pans and peanutbutter knives. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm still no fan of doing dishes. But having a major appliance that does the gross stuff for me helps me dread it a little less.

There's a lot more I could tell to this story: how getting rid of the old dishwasher is symbolic of finally ridding ourselves of the mess left behind by the previous owner of our home, how we're finally over it, how we'll live in peace and harmony forever more. And how, if we ever happen to run into said previous owner we'll be pleasant and cheerful and enthusiastic about all the wonderful work he did on our home without mentioning the windows painted shut, the vermin, the haphazard plumbing and wiring, or the piles of (as it turns out) dog crap. But no one would believe the rest of that story anyway. So I'll just leave it at this: I love my new (black) dishwasher. Thank you Michael. And thank you Lowes.

Now saving the world is even easier! And more stylish, since you should not wear white after labor day.

I love your place and I love dishwashers! I have only had one for 2 years of my whole entire life- I loved those days.

Yay for the wonderful dishwasher! I am a little jealous of you. Even though we have a dishwasher, it is not stylish and black. Also, our dishwasher is really loud. I feel that I should prepare for takeoff each time I turn the thing on. Is yours super quiet? That's definitely a feature I want in our next dishwasher. And the whole not having to scrape gunk off the "clean" dishes would be a plus. Congratulations on your fabulous machine!

Wow. How cool that you have a black one. I have never had one that color. But, every time we have added a dishwasher to the home, it has increased peace and tranquility, as well as the amount of home cooked meals.
