When we started looking for an apartment we had a long list of things we wanted. A dishwasher was one of them. It wasn’t a deal breaker for me, but it was for the other half of this decision-making team. After looking at over twenty apartments, that long list of must-haves dwindled down to a few would-be-nice items and a please-God-let-us-live-somewhere-larger-than-a-storage-closet.
Well we found a place that we could picture most of our furniture fitting in, had lots of light, was in a convenient location, but it did not have a dishwasher. With a promise of buying a portable dishwasher, we moved in.
Well it only took us two months before we were unpacked enough to fit one in the kitchen. We came across a decent used one on Craigslist. We’ve used it a few times this week and so far so good!! I’d say it’s a little louder than the “Whisper Wash” it says on the front, but it’s still quieter than I was expecting. And the dishes – they come out clean!
I’d forgotten how great it is to eat lunch and know that the dishes are going in the dishwasher. They don’t sit on the counter for hours. Ok, for days, if we’re being honest.
This dishwasher – it really is my favourite of the week! Here’s to doing more cooking and baking during the week. And not doing the dishes!!
