I took a couple of clean things out of the dishwasher yesterday. Today, Lovely Man saw the space, put in a couple of dirty things and started it running. We realised what has happened and:

"Sorry, it's my fault for starting... and.. um..." *wanders off*
"Not finishing, you mean?"

It's wonderful. And apparently more environmentally friendly - uses less water than hand washing!
We have a half sized one - perfect for two.

So I've heard. Just googled now, and I found these two links:
http://www.gippswater.com.au/environment/conservation.asp - lots of water conservation tips
http://environment.about.com/od/greenlivingdesign/a/dishwashers.htm - specifically about dishwashers

So, get an efficient dishwasher (check the energy ratings), don't rinse stuff before putting it in, and run it full only.

The only reason we have one is that it's in the house we're renting. I also had assumed handwashing was better (it's harder, it must be better) and had been of the opinion we should wait a few years before getting it in the new house, but now I want one as soon as we can, as I'm now spolied by using this one, and have no guilt about getting one.
