Gutting a small galley kitchen to make the kitchen DH and I will use for next 30 years. We're retired, no kids, cook and entertain quite a bit. Much of our dishes, glassware, and flatware are not appropriate for a dishwasher. And, reading about dishwasher detergents on the Appliance Forum, it seems dishwashers are useful only for items you don't care much about. Our old dishwasher died about 4 years ago, and we have missed it only occasionally. Are we nuts to eliminate a dishwasher from the new kitchen? We would give the space to a cabinet or really wide sink set-up.
