With everything else we can do in this world, there still is not a dishwasher that can unload itself? Seriously.

    My friend has a wheelchair bound sister. Their house has 2 dishwashers and dishes go from one to the other – never to the cupboard. Perhaps you just need another dishwasher?

        I have two dishwashers, and it is one of the best decisions I made when renovating my kitchen! I still hate to unload them, though! :-)

        As I sit.. lazily.. on the couch, I am currently hearing the clinking and clanking from the kitchen.. the kind that means the dishes are being put away.

        Point for Cait! :)

    You know what I really hate though? Cleaning the microwave. Worst. job. ever.

    Don’t I know it! Sometimes my husband will unload it for me, but he doesn’t know where everything goes so he leaves like half of the clean things on the counter. Good grief. I might as well do it myself!

    There are alternatives available such as train your spouse and/or children, eat out regularly or use disposable (not environmentally friendly though).

    Why unload when it goes back there again. Just use it straight out of the washer:)

      Haha, before I even read your whole comment, I was like “Ironing? I don’t iron!” I mean… my mom irons… but I don’t even own an iron. It would only be for special occasions and I am too poor and don’t have enough space :)

        Definitely a British thing. When I first moved to Scotland from Canada I barely ironed anything. Now…I have been brought over to the dark side. It’s sad really. BUT you can iron in front of the TV…

        • Andrea — May 14th, 2011 @ 8:50 pm

          In front of the TV or if you are very English….listening to Radio 4! One American cousin who just moved back here said she bought an iron because of how much we have to play for cleaning clothes….. but I am getting adept at tumbling and smoothing….oh and have just discovered drier sheets!! How sad…..x

    I’d do dishes all day long if it meant I’d never have to cook again. haha I’m a bad wife. I was always told not to put wooden spoons through the dishwasher. I think it might make them crack? You’d know better than me though. If you bake me cupcakes, I’ll do your dishes. :)

    The closest thing I’ve seen is an in-sink dish washer that you stack (vertically) the plates and silverware. You close the lid, wash, open the lid and use the dishes right out of the sink. Great idea, but it only washes a few dishes at a time. Blogging can create quite the pile of dishes ;)

    I’m with you, sister. Since it’s just me at home, I don’t use the dishwasher much, but when I do and the dishes are clean, I end up taking things as I need them and then hand wash them. This continues until the dishwasher is almost empty and then I put the last things away. It’s pathetic.
