Favourite Things Friday
Well it was that bad, and we decided that we would get a new dishwasher. I was all for spending not much getting an el cheapo thing because if it was only going to last 4 years I wasn't going to spend big bucks. Then I had coffee with the girls last week and one had had a Bosche for 30 years and the other swore by her Miele.
We happened to be in the city last week and decided to have a quick look before our dentist appointment. The bottom of the range Bosche had a plastic bottom which didn't excite DH, but the Miele bottom of the range although it didn't have the pull out cutlery draw (Dishwasher Nirvana) it did look roomy inside was all stainless steel and $200 off.
There had to be a bit of demolition to fit it in the gap, however it is installed, with another minor hiccup being that it required dishwasher salt. DH did a "What the (*&^%^" This is going to be a piece of ^%$#. I made enquiries and made the purchase of dishwasher salt from the place where we bought the dishwasher (why the hell the sales guy didn't tell us about it is beyond me but it did take him 1/2 hour to complete the sale with his 2 fingered typing).
DH would marry the dishwasher if he could he is so happy with it. Plenty of room for plates, the dishes dry and he doesn't have to stand a wash dishes with me anymore. Either one of us can't stand each other's dish washing technique (his involves washing each dish, glass or piece of cutlery separately and I am not kidding took minimum an hour to complete). After putting up with that for 8 months I might even marry the dishwasher.
So Miele is my FTF this week. Head on over to Mrs P to check out everyone elses.
