I grew up in a house without a dishwasher. And for a really long time after—even when my college and post-college apartments had these cathartic symbols of luxury installed under the countertops—I sort of just... kept doing dishes by hand. It was easier, to me. While dishwashers are indisputably the pantheon of modern efficiency, it pays to mind the words of Uncle Ben Parker: With great power comes great responsibility.
