Morning Scepticism: Convenience

For years I lived a dishwasher-free existence, so washing dishes was merely a nightly event. I didn't mind so much, it wasn't so annoying. But in the last two places I've lived, I haven't had the need to do it anymore. Both had dishwashers, so cleaning dishes became a matter of stacking and putting away, while the cleaning was done by a machine. Though now I'm not sure whether it's a good thing. The dishwasher uses more water, more electricity, doesn't do as good a job, and the current dishwasher is rusting stainless steel. If it weren't so gosh darn convenient, I'd go back to doing it by hand!
