Am I Wasting My Dishwasher?

Good Questions

Q: How often do you use your dishwasher? My new apartment is tricked out with a dishwasher, but after two months I find I barely use it. Granted, it's just my boyfriend and I, but we do generate a good amount of dirty dishes.

I worked in small restaurants where cleaning dishes as you go was an absolute must and I haven't been able to put down the habit. These days, I feel like I might be cheating myself out of a convenience.

Editor: Readers, can you relate to this? How often do you use your own dishwasher? Do you save it for dinner parties, or do you take advantage of it every day? Any tips for Elizabeth?
