Washing the dishes

It’s a chore everyone hates. We have never owned a dishwasher at Renaud Manor, but that is soon to change. It is our hope to buy one and install it before the baby arrives next month. To do it, I’ll be converting some under-counter shelf space into a spot for the dishwasher.

We’re still looking into different brands and models to see what we might get. Yoli wants something black, and we both want something reliable. Several Kenmores scored really well in Consumer Reports ’08 buying guide. But the problem with diswasher makers is that they change model numbers fairly frequently, making it more difficult to guess a model’s longevity given past history of older versions.

Anyway, if anyone out there has dishwasher stories to share, please comment here. I’d love to hear about recent dishwashers that worked really well.
