Dishwasher Purchasing !

Postby ShaluC » Thu, 05 Aug 2010 2:48 pm

Hello,

I need to purchase a dishwasher.. can somebody tell me from where should I purchase it? The brand that we should consider...etc...

Also, i would like to understand its reviews.

Does it work with the Indian cooking system ?

Thanks in advance !

Indian cooking system? You mean you don't use pots to cook with or dishes to eat off of? You actually wash & reuse banana leaves? :cool:

hmm... :)
Now this is for all the curious readers...and interesting responses:

By Indian cooking system I meant that we do cook in big utensils .. but we mostly cook with lots of spices and oil.... and after cooking the utensils are in a bad shape. So if we clean them manually, we have to put in good amt of effort to clean them.. so was curious if a dishwasher works in this case or not! or how much helpful it would be to purchase a dishwasher.

There is no damage to the utensils actually. OP is trying to say the utensils become more greasy and has more cooking residue because of the cooking.

Ever think maybe you should change cooking styles? I now know why so many Indians have Cholesterol problems and subsequent heart attacks. :cool:

Actually it is more easy to clean if it is greasy as it does not heat-dry-stick that quickly so I am too confused what is here the problem. The only difficulty I see cooking "Indian" is that places like basin or the kitchen benchtop get yellowed but this is a) not that permanent b) has nothing to do with the washing machine.

Yep, you are right, but the OP was asking about dishwasher :lol: :lol: :lol:
Well, if the dishwasher is used properly (the right program) there should not be any problems, but if you will choose economical option (i. e., shorter program) you may end up with some grease stains on the utensils and dishes nicely 'preserved' into dry, heated up dirt.

I am amazed that SMS is a moderator considering the fact that he makes comment over a race.

Ideally a mod's responsibility is to avoid such things over a forum and not supporting them

What's wrong about making comments about a race? You clearly don't know much about SMS.
