Up until three years ago, I had never owned a dishwasher. I had always washed dishes by hand, but with a busy toddler under foot, I was having a hard time keeping up. Finally, my husband and I decided to look for a portable dishwasher on Craig’s List. Luckily, we found one pretty quickly, and once we brought it home and plugged it in I was ecstatic. The dishwasher changed my life.
My kitchen looked cleaner, because there were no longer dirty dishes filling up my sink. I became a more adventurous cook, because I no longer dreaded the task of washing all the dishes after the meal was served. Best of all, I no longer had to worry about my son pulling random dishes from the sink and hiding them around the house.
