DW Rinse Cycle
Do any of you use the rinse cycle on your DW? I have a 20+ year-old DW and have always scraped and rinsed thoroughly before putting anything in the DW. I'm adjusting to the idea that when I buy my new DW I can (and should) just scrape the dishes. However, I've been concerned about odors and stuck-on food, since I don't always run my DW daily. I thought running the dishes through a rinse cycle would be advisable on days I'm not going to do a full wash. I've been told this is a bad idea and that the dw is more likely to develop an odor that way than if I just left it alone until doing a wash cycle. i have two questions: (1) Is that true? (2) If so, then why does the DW have a rinse cycle?
