I fell for the “cash for appliances” boondoggle last spring when replacing our dishwasher, but now after the fact I couldn’t be happier with how much easier dishwashing has become. It’s hard to believe that in my lifetime Brenda and I have never had a dishwasher that cleans … or scrubs dishes. We’ve owned three different brands in the past, Kenmore, Maytag and KitchenAid — none have cleaned the dishes. We always had to handwash, or at minimum really soak the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. There was no way we could have put dried ‘gunky pans or plates into the machine expecting them to come out clean … until now. Our new Bosch dishwasher was worth every penny.
I ran a test this past weekend with one of my wife’s staple foods, dried beef gravy (on toast) and didn’t get to cleaning up until it had hardened and ‘glued’ itself to the pan. After just loading it into the Bosch and setting it to ‘automatic’ it came out clean. Amazing!
