It's a dishwasher!! We've been hand washing everything since we moved into this house, but now we can just put it in the dishwasher and press START. Unfortunately, since the house was built in 1950 and dishwashers weren't so common in the home back then, I had to sacrifice a drawer and a cabinet in order to fit the new appliance in our kitchen. So...the rest of our cabinets and drawers are a little more crammed and crowded...but very worth it!!!!
