Yes. It is why we own one.

Whirlpool from 2009, run it every 2 - 3 days, always use the drying cycle. We quick-rinse plates and glasses under the faucet before we put them in, as they may be sitting for days before having a full load to run. It cleans real well, but we rinse to avoid any smells with it sitting till next run. No filters to clean, zero maintenance.


We hand-wash pots, pans, knives with wood handles.


We follow the loading instructions that came with it, which maximizes the water jets impact on items.

We mostly use our dishwasher as a drying rack (after hand-washing the dishes).

I can not stand dirty dishes laying around. Soon as dinner is done, DW goes to watch Wheel Of Fortune and I load the dishwasher. Before bed, she unloads and sets the coffee pot for the next morning.

It sounds like you've got your routine down pat!

Yes, we use the dishwasher in both our homes. We usually rinse unless we intend to run the dishwasher right away. We usually do pots and pans and knives by hand but will occasionally put pots and pans in the dishwasher.

New Samsung used every other day when full, scrape plates but don't rinse.
Using the dishwasher saves the DW a lot of work.

Yes. We have a quiet Kitchen Aid that we put in when we remodeled 3 years ago. Don’t need to rinse and everything gets clean, even the hard cheesy bits someone asked about.

When we were working, we only ran it a few times per week but now we run it almost every day as we are cooking a lot more at home. We do hand wash most of our wine glasses and all of our good knives. A few years ago we got rid of the high-end hand wash only cookware and bought a dishwasher-safe set, and now we wash all pots and pans in the DW.

Yes, I use a dishwasher. We just bought a new house (new to us -- house is over 30 years old). The prior owners had bought a new dishwasher in the last couple of years. I was glad because I am a stickler for having one of the newer quiet dishwashers. I had one at my old house that I couldn't tell it was running unless I looked at it. This one is the same way.

In most cases, there is no need to rinse beforehand. Rarely with something odd shaped I might rinse but that isn't common.

Yes, we also have a Bosch dishwasher that we bought last year when our Kitchenaid died. The Bosch is very quiet and cleans pretty well, but we do usually rinse.

We also have a Bosch dishwasher. Use it maybe twice a year. Sold it last night because we’re getting a free new one as part of a total kitchen appliance package. Probably won’t use it either.

Everyone in our house lightly rinses diahes/glasses and puts them straight into the Bosch dishwasher. No dishes in the sink means our kitchen is always presentable and tidy.

Yes, yes, no, no.


We have an 18 year old Kitchenaid (Whirlpool). It works well.

We have two dishwashers. Both are used daily. One is new. Very little rinsing.

Never use dishwasher -- easier just to hand wash the few dishes I use daily.

Yes, we have a Kitchenaid that is so quiet you hardly know it's running. We give the dishes a cursory rinse to get rid of big chunks and run it every other day or so. When we have company it's run every day.
