my secret shame. i have a portable dishwasher. the original cabinets in the house are too shallow to fit a built-in. I wash most of my pots and pans by hand, but I just stick plates and glassware in the dishwasher. oddly, when i have a big dinner party is when i do most of the hand-washing ... damned wine glasses and good silver.
ETA: that's actually the heart of my redesign. we've got a laundry room at the end of the kitchen that i want to change into a butler's pantry with dishwasher, washup sink and pantry. move the laundry room to the guest house ... only two of us, we wash more dishes than clothes.
