After over 11 years, our faithful old Whirlpool dishwasher finally died. It started showing signs of its demise on Christmas Eve, and last Friday (Ryan’s Birthday Eve), it gave up the ghost. Fortunately, I was in the kitchen when it happened, or we would have had a major flood on our hands! I can’t even imagine how much work it saved me over the years…around holidays, it wasn’t unheard of for me to run it twice, and occasionally even three times a day! I always enjoy playing “dishwasher Tetris” trying to get as many dishes in as possible before starting a load, but when you’re talking Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner for as many as nine people, those dishes pile up fast!
It was, of course, very exciting to see our new Bosch dishwasher delivered today, and figure out what all it can do! It has three racks! And it’s SO QUIET!!! I can’t even believe it’s running, because I have to put my ear right up to it to hear it!
We’ve now replaced all of our kitchen appliances, plus our washer and dryer. I guess that’s to be expected, after 11 years in this house, and I’ve enjoyed seeing what new things each new appliance can do!
