Re: Dishwasher backwash


@BayouRunner Printed for my husband's reference. Lots of thanks headed your way :P

@ddawg16 I absolutely love it, no way I'd go back to a single drawer personally. We had four teenage boys so we used to use both drawers daily, but now that the kids are grown up and moved out, I really like being able to do a single drawer "half load." The only "problem" per say is really tall stuff doesn't fit in it (like my 1/2 sheet and 2/3 sheet baking pans) but hand-washing that stuff is probably preferable anyway so it works out great for us.

Re: Dishwasher backwash


We have one as well. Only two years old. My wife says that if this one ever goes out that she won’t go back to the single door. Our kids are gone as well. And for the most part we only use the top

Re: Dishwasher backwash


@BayouRunner seems to be a common theme for us empty nesters. [And us nearly empty nesters, I've got one left who's finishing up their last year of college.]

Re: Dishwasher backwash


We’ve had a couple of experiences where they came back with more then when they left. Last one came back with a husband, two kids and a dog. It was a long six months or so while they saved enough to buy their first home. They got pretty comfortable upstairs as they were looking. I walked upstairs and handed them the real estate financing papers. And told them “fill them out or move out”. Think they were quite surprised lol. Anyway all is good the last few years. I don’t foresee anymore coming back but you never know

Re: Dishwasher backwash


@BayouRunner Uf, I consider myself lucky that the three on their own are making great money in high-demand/portable fields. The fourth is following suit and already has a $70k/y job lined up as soon as he get's his paperwork from college.

We've always told the boys that if they had kidlits before they could support them, it was their responsibility to work two or three jobs to handle it on their own. (Of course we'd step in, but they don't know that :P) We made a very specific point to show the boys how much kids cost, and how much the house costs, every single month. So far it's paid off - the elder three are all over 27 and I'm not a grandma yet. All of the boys say they're going to wait until they have houses before they have kids - I think that's a pretty smart gauge for them to use. Proud mom here

Re: Dishwasher backwash


We've got five grandbabies and another in the oven. Every weekend one, two or more spend the weekend as they have lots to do. Have another in the oven as well. They have kids rooms, four wheelers, electric and gas, animals, bikes and toys galore. Yes we spoil them. We like it that the parents just drop them off. They are nowhere near the fun lol. All girls though. Got my fingers crossed on the next one

Re: Dishwasher backwash


I have to add my $0.02 to this thread. I bought a Fisher Paykel double Dishdrawer over 10 years ago. It is a fantastic appliance.....totally changes how you will view and operate a dishwasher.

My wife years past had back problems and this appliance does not require stooping over. She will never use any other dishwasher.

The only problem we have had in over ten years is when people (ie friends and visitors) overload the drawer.....you cannot do that as it will cause water to leak out of the top seals and cause a flood error.

I also had hard water (no softener) and got the model with the salt dispenser (ie built in softener). Works great and no hard water build ups.

It is a great design and follows up with great performance.

Re: Dishwasher backwash


I hadn't really thought about the bending over thing, but it's true, I have occasional bad knees and I do favor that top drawer so I don't have to bend as much.

Mine won't run if the top seal plate thing doesn't come down right. I ended up having to craigslist a whole set of stoneware dishes because the plates were too tall. (Probably good for us in the long run as Corelle is so much more durable and we're a bit abusive to our dishes.)

Re: Dishwasher backwash


God I would hate that. I have one rule in the kitchen in our house - everything that touches food must go into the dishwasher. No plastic dishes, wood handles on knives, etc. The only exception is cast iron, the rolling pin, the cutting board, and the waffle iron, but I'm the only one that cooks on cast iron my wife doesn't. Early on in our marriage my wife would fall for the "pretty colors" of plastic cups and plates, spatulas, serving spoons and such as well as that awful teflon cookware but after I melted and shrinky-dinked them in the dishwasher she finally stopped buying that garbage. She cooks but doesn't do dishes. Every last pot, pan, knife, cookie sheet, dish etc. and cooking utensil we have is either stainless steel, china, earthenware or heat resistant plastic. Every once in a while she complains about the kitchen looking "too industrial" but I just tell her your welcome to buy plastic kitchenware but I'm don't pay attention to labels on cookware that say "not dishwasher safe"

It's 2019 we have plastics that survive bolted to car engines if the kitchenware makers can't figure it out, screw em and their products.
