It’s been quite a busy summer – with the kids out of school, I haven’t been posting as much on MomHomeGuide. But, the kids will be starting up summer camp soon, so check in to read some new posts!
It’s been about a week since a new Bosch Ascenta dishwasher from Lowe’s has been installed in our kitchen. I am loving it so far!
The dishwasher is super quiet, and to date, it’s working well. I tried using the delay start the other day, and it worked fine.
Smaller, More Frequent Loads
One possible drawback I’ve found is that the rack space in the dishwasher is much smaller than the space I had in my old GE dishwasher. But this drawback has turned out to be a plus for me. I used to hold off on running my GE dishwasher because I felt guilty about running a dishwasher that wasn’t entirely full – I worried about wasting both water and energy. But, because this machine is slightly smaller and because of its Energy Star rating, I can run a cycle of dishes after every meal with no pangs of guilt! So now, my kitchen looks better, since the sink that once was usually filled with dishes waiting to be washed is now empty.
I’ve also noticed that the inside of the dishwasher drawer is wet after a wash. I don’t know if this is a problem, but now I routinely wipe it dry after a cycle – I figure that doing so will help maintain my machine, as well as keep it cleaner.
