I don't like dishwashers though because I think the concept of washing your dishes in pumice grit on a regular basis is stupid.

the best dishwashers are the higher end residential ones by siemens/bosch that have the volcano rocks in them that absorb all the moisture during the drying cycle so everything is bone dry and cool to the touch when you open the door

i have a bosch dishwasher and an lg washer and dryer pair and they're good

i had the same bosch dishwasher for about 10 years and then something broke that was basically half hte cost of a new one to fix so I bought a new bosch and i dont like it as much.

Ive had an LG washing machine for about 4 years and its had a tiny leak in it for a long time and fixing it is again like half the cost of a new one so i just tolerate it.

Ive had the same whirlpool dryer for like 20 years, its great.

The samsung fridge loving sucks rear end, dont buy one.

I just got a bosch dishwasher and it's pretty ok

some stuff comes out smelling a bit like detergent, more than they did with the 10 year old frigidaire it replaced

the miele i have now can basically get anything off of the dishes. you can put some really nasty stuff in there and it comes out sparkling clean, even stuff like heavily coffee/tea stained cups that had to be scrubbed with steel wool in the past come out looking brand new

the worst thing about buying good quality appliances is that if you move house, the buyer won't care and the place you move to will have poo poo ones because most people are idiots.

mine are clean of pretty much everything. i just use a dishwasher to get the final bit of oil off, sanitization, and rinsing. i also did hand wash all of my dishes for years and ran a food truck.

if you rinse your dish clean of particulate right after use, washing is simple even a day later. if you throw dishes full of food into your sink and leave them, they’re a pain in the as to clean and attract pests.

commercial dishwashers are a different beast and are used after some person has already hosed down the dish of anything on it with a high pressure nozzle.

Scrape off the bulk food matter into a composting bin, but otherwise straight in.

The point of a residential dishwasher is labour-saving, if you're still hand-washing the dishes before putting them in then you're missing the point.

Commercial dishwashers are a totally different machine that serves a totally different purpose (rapidly sanitising dishes to commercial food-safety standards).

yeah you have to leave *some* debris for the detergent to react with, but big lumps or solids or large quantities of liquid will just end up in the filter. anything that can be easily pushed off with silverware goes in the trash, when it's just smears left it can go in the dishwasher

Even if it takes a couple of days to fill it, it’s far more efficient than you can ever hope to be hand washing.

even more efficient in that case, since the amount of water and electricity used doesn't vary that much with how full it is

ok fine, "having a dishwasher when you live alone is dumb if there are any relevant tradeoffs at all." the "use less water" thing is only compelling in arid parts of the world, and even then it's hard for me to get too worked up about it

I kind of agree that using a dishwasher for one person is more trouble than it's worth even if hand washing isn't actually more efficient or anything. Or at least I haven't bothered using the dishwasher when I have been in that situation and had a dishwasher.

the most likely outcomes of this are either a trivial fine or maybe advertisers have to pay slightly less.

the main virtue of zuckbot, despite being a little poo poo in nearly all other ways, is that he didnt give one gently caress about that one so it just takes another putative tech major to keep on carrying that torch while facebook gets its nuts kicked. i tend to think it'll be stripe this time

the real big problem w/ cartels is that they present strong avenues for defection. even with nation-states that know violence and how to do violence and poo poo, OPEC gets defections all the time. you need total unity to get a cartel going properly and groups of economic entities can't do total unity, really

why though? it's an inverse prisoner's dilemma, if one guy defects then everybody's profit goes down because now suddenly you have to pay the defector's offered rate if you want the very best people. and if you want to build something like adwords or apple's A-series processors or DynamoDB then you do need the very best people

if you have a cozy club that is for all practical purposes impossible for outsiders to muscle in on then the last thing you want to do is rock the boat

thats not the inverse prisoner's dilemma, that's just the ordinary prisoner's dilemma, because the defecting firm did get that good computer-toucher so now they have an advantage against all the other fucks
