Oh! Two Dishwashers

  (+21, -2)(+21, -2)

  [vote for,

Like one dishwasher but better. This is two dishwashers: side by side, next to each other, in a kitchen. They're the same, but there's two of them.

Cutlery and crockery is now in just one of three places. It's in a dishwasher having just been washed, it's in the other dishwasher ready to be washed or, you're using it.

Two dishwashers negate the need for cupboards. It's cheaper and better for kitchen amnesiacs.

"Just like a conventional dishwasher, except there's two of them in this instance. A huge improvement."

Fisher & Paykel got there first http://fisherpaykel...77-F64B4A9CAF40FA9F
Two dishwashers in one unit. May be fully integrated into cabinetry or kept as stainless. Can also be installed side by side. [infidel, Sep 27 2010]

       I was going to say what [infidel] said, they're expensive, but nice.
neilp, Sep 27 2010

       You probably can't get them, in rainy, dreary Englalond.
infidel, Sep 27 2010

       No, we're only allowed one per household over here, on account of rationing. And they are made of leather.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 27 2010

       Oh, and it's spelled "Ingerland."
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 27 2010

       I have seriously thought about doing this.
nomocrow, Sep 27 2010

       Is there no limit to what two of one thing can do?
kaz, Sep 27 2010

       This is too good. So good I can't stand it.+
blissmiss, Sep 28 2010

       [MB], I meant Fisher & Paykel dishdrawers, churl.   

       Surprised to hear that leather buttplugs are rationed, in your country.
infidel, Sep 28 2010

       infidel... I'm beginning to think the majority of your time spent on here is dedicated to the belittlement of people in such a moderate way that it can almost be mistaken for lame attempts at cunning. I'll look into it further.
daseva, Sep 28 2010

       Welcome back, Jon
hippo, Sep 28 2010

       Wasn't this hippo's idea originally?
hazel, Sep 28 2010

       The problem with this as i see it is that one dishwasher becomes a dank cupboard unless you get through a whole load of crockery in one go. It would be rather like using a washing machine as a wardrobe.
nineteenthly, Sep 28 2010

       [hazel] really?
hippo, Sep 28 2010

       I'm not sure about cunning, but this place brings out the linguist in me, [daseva].   

       [+], by the way.
infidel, Sep 28 2010

       //infidel... I'm beginning to think the majority of your time spent on here is dedicated to the belittlement of people//   

       It's fine by me. I have egobesity.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 28 2010

       + I have always called my dishwasher *the wet cabinet*!! 2 would solve all problems!
xandram, Sep 28 2010

       I want to bun this on the principle that more (two) of a good thing is usually better, but I hate unloading one dishwasher. Would I have to unload two, now? (More {two} of a bad thing.)   

       And, would (could) they both be quiet?!? I hate the noisy ones.
Boomershine, Sep 28 2010

       [MB]//I have egobesity.//   

       But, you can't help this...and, you are not morbidly egobese. Those smarty pants just make your head look more egobese.
Boomershine, Sep 28 2010

       I'm on a low-fact diet to try to resolve the problems.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 28 2010

       "egobesity". My new favorite term. Thank you.
blissmiss, Sep 28 2010

       Of course. "The HalfBakery.--Naturally low in facts."   

       Stick with it, [Max]. The great thing about the HB is the more you want the less you get.
Boomershine, Sep 28 2010

       //The HalfBakery.--Naturally low in facts.//   

       I think we did that one in the now-dead "Taglines". Alas.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 28 2010

       This is a good idea - so [+] - but it is indeed baked by many. My parents for one...   

       It's better than you might think though. For general use things yo-yo back and forth between the two. Sometimes items get put back in a cupboard and othertimes new items join in the yo-yo action.   

       However, when you have people over, they work as a double size dishwasher and all the dishes can vanish.
saedi, Sep 28 2010

       After "Two Cups of Coffee", and now "Two Dishwashers", I will resist the temptation to post "Two Halfbaked Ideas".
normzone, Sep 28 2010

       //I think we did that one in the now-dead "Taglines".//   

       That is exactly where I got it. Did not mean to suggest otherwise. More of an endorsement of the HB for your um...issue.
Boomershine, Sep 28 2010

       Ah - sorry, my misunderhension.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 28 2010

       I just let nature take care of such matters for me.
quantass, Sep 29 2010

       //After "Two Cups of Coffee", and now "Two Dishwashers"// - I think this implies a house with two kitchens, each with its own coffee-making facilities.
hippo, Sep 29 2010

       Two houses!
squeak, Sep 29 2010

       You have taken that too far.
pocmloc, Sep 29 2010

       Parallel universes.
hippo, Sep 29 2010

       [21]//I'm at a loss to understand how an idea that is so obviously Baked is getting so many positive votes.//   

       Really? I can see how this idea might not get *your* positive vote, but I have no trouble understanding how it got so many *other* positive votes. Same voters, same standards (or lack thereof).   

       Which is not to say they are right, you are wrong. Just how it is.
Boomershine, Sep 29 2010

       Well around here you have twice as many cups to wash, so you need 2 dishwashers. I think.
blissmiss, Sep 29 2010

       [21Q]: Votes mean ... what? Doesn't have to be original to be liked, does it?
I personally think that two dishwashers is a great idea. It's wholly baked, of course - but I ain't grumbling too much as long as my dishes are done.

       What might be a better idea is to have two half-sized dishwashers co located. Like a dual compartment. Sure, efficiency might be poor - but you'd get the general benefit of this idea... it might even be preferable to a single full-size dishwasher. (Just spotted [infidel]'s link... "yeah - like that!)   

       Oh - and great to see ya, [jtg].
Jinbish, Sep 29 2010

       //Well around here you have twice as many cups to wash, so you need 2 dishwashers. I think.//   

       [21] See? Same voters, same flawless logic.   

       Thanks, [bliss]. Loved your post.
Boomershine, Sep 29 2010

       If it's of any help, I have a double-drainer sink.
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 29 2010

       Prolly 2 sponges too.
blissmiss, Sep 29 2010

       [21 Quest], I mean this in the nicest possible you, you must understand, hmmm?   

       Seriously, man, I am worried about you. I wouldn't make this entreaty to you if that were not the case. However, I feel I have to bring it to your attention.   

       People here post silly ideas in order to entertain themselves and others. It's not a life-or-death situation every time someone posts an idea or an annotation or casts a vote.   

       Buy, hire or steal a dog and go and play with it in the park for a while, or something.   

       This place is a playground, not a battlefield... OK?
infidel, Sep 30 2010

       now now [infidel] [21]'s opinion is as valid as anyone's ...
po, Sep 30 2010

       Valid perhaps, but I'm not so sure the level of belligerence underlying most of his/her annotations entitles the writer to continue to make such comments without an expectation of challenges from others.   

       If you have an opinion then, by all means, express it. My contention is that you can do so without hammering it down people's throats.
infidel, Sep 30 2010

       If I may say so (and I think I may), then it isn't so much a matter of whether, as it is a matter of when. Or don't they?
MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 30 2010

       There are some small blessings in this world, it would seem.
infidel, Oct 01 2010

       sp: bugs :)
po, Oct 01 2010

       Two dishwashers?   

       Bigamy is illegal in this here jurisdiction.
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Oct 02 2010

       Oh crap.
