Yesterday was a kitchen day for me! Which means as a food blogger, your kitchen could possibly be disastrous by the end of the night. :) Recipes are organized, ingredients laid out, camera’s ready, laptop on the kitchen counter, dishes stacked up, pots and pans in the sink, iPhone ready for Instagram shots – it’s quite the process.

I know, it’s rare to see a blogger post her messy kitchen, but I have no shame. Ha Ha. I’m just keeping it real here on RE. There’s a lot of time, work, and cleanup involved in pulling so many recipes together! And for me–add in the entertaining element (lots of dishes and stemware)–I’m constantly doing dishes or running my dishwasher.

By the end of the night, whether entertaining OR making new recipes, I’ll be honest here … sometimes I’m pooped! And the last thing I want to do is clean up!

Enter our brand new GE 120 v Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher.

GE delivered and installed a new dishwasher in our home a few weeks ago, after a cry for help during the holidays when my old dishwasher died. I did have it repaired during the holidays (no other choice), and prayed that it would “hang on” until the new one arrived. :)

I love the look. It’s a traditional style that is clean, straight forward, attractive, with hidden controls. It’s lovely!

I’m happy to say that I have now have TOTAL confidence in spotless clean dishes!

Features of the GE 120 v Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher:

Stainless steel: The inside has hybrid stainless steel (inner door and tub)
Lots of power: There’s 65% more wash power than GE’s older models.
The way it cleans: The dishwasher cleans from the top to the bottom with 3 pressurized wash arms.
Not always a full load: You don’t have to wait for a full load, you can run half load in the upper or lower and save energy!
Steam prewash: Tough stains are loosened before any cycle.
AutoSense cycle: It automatically adjusts to soil level to maximize energy (savings) and will ensure clean dishes.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the Steam Prewash feature. With all the cooking I did yesterday, like I said, I had TOTAL confidence my dishes were going to be nice and clean! And I didn’t have to soak or pre-rinse the dishes like I’ve had to do in the past. What a great feature!

The outcome of my messy kitchen experience last night was that our family enjoyed a delicious Irish meal (I’ll be sharing the recipe here on RE very soon), with a fabulous Bacon Wrapped Apricots with Honey & Rosemary appetizer, another tasty recipe to take with you when invited out, or to make for your guests (recipe also coming soon!).

So here’s to my MESSY kitchen, our new GE Dishwasher, and a spotless kitchen when I woke up this morning! (top photo)

Clean just feels good.

How’s your dishwasher working for you? Do you have confidence that it will really clean the dishes to meet your standards?
