When I moved into my little farmhouse the dishwasher that came with the house was a “portable dishwasher” which I’ve never experienced. You have to roll it over to the sink, hook the hose up to the faucet, turn on the hot water and plug it in. It never really did a great job but I thought it was because of my well water. Turns out a NEW REAL dishwasher was the key! Because there had never been a “real” dishwasher in the house before I had to have the sink re-plumbed and since the PVC pipes needed to be changed out, I decided to change out the water valves, water lines, add a garbage disposal and add a filtered water faucet. Wow, I love it!! You don’t realize how much you appreciate the simple conveniences in life until you don’t have them and then get them back! The portable dishwasher is going to my neighbor who has NEVER owned a dishwasher – I know crazy! And one day there will be a full counter and a cabinet next to my new dishwasher. I moved the 4 drawer cabinet from where the new dishwasher is now to the opposite side of the kitchen and put it in between the stove and fridge. Kitchen re-do is not happening any time soon but this all works for now!! The dishwasher is a Whirlpool Gold Series and I love it!! Has a ton of space inside and is quiet!! The filtered water faucet is a Brita and it’s sold as a kit – comes with everything you need and you just hook it up to your cold water – between your cold water faucet and your water line (not at your water valve). Bought them both at Home Depot. Thank you sooooo much to Bob from work – he’s always so kind to help me out with my crazy endeavors!
