    We've got a maytag but found that with just the two of us, we'd run out of dishes before the unit was filled. We still do dishes by hand 95% of the time.

    One person's opinion
    Agree with Len, with the two of us we do the dishes by hand. We do run the dishwasher at least once a month to keep the seals soft and exercise it, usually after we do a big cook of some sort and load it up for a few days to get a full load.
    We pretty much put anything in but our wooden cutting boards and cast iron pans along with our utility knifes. No problems so far.

    Found a long time ago hand washing is not efficient at all (at least with modern machines) Even the worst of machines today use only about 6 gallons max. You cannot wash even a few plates by hand with that little bit of water. I will run ours even if just a few pieces are in there
