Foto Finish Friday-How high can you go?



Our dishwasher is broken, dead, no longer functioning. RIP. So I bought a larger dish drain and now have to wash the bastards dishes by hand.

Now the contest begins.....How high can  you go?

Notice my strategy? A large flat "piece" at each end to balance dishes against. Plates lined up underneath and round things on top. Plastic at the very top so if it falls off, no matter. Smaller items and rinsed cans for recycling and returning sprinkled in the openings. I particularly like the shot glasses balanced on the cutlery.

I'm so sorry your dishwasher broke. I lived with the world's worst one for so many years. I finally got a Bosch and I have loved it every day since:)

Oddly, when the dishwasher "fairy" unloads our dishwasher and stacks them in the cupboard, they look just like that!
Hope a new a machine lands on your doorstep soon! - G

I do that with all the ones that don't fit in the dishwasher. Those holders can handle A LOT! Impressive :)

I can't tell you how many dishes I've washed by hand. We didn't have a dishwasher growing up. In fact, my parents just got a dishwasher when they remodeled their kitchen 2 years ago. I am very skilled in dish piling.

I think my wife has you beat. ;) She cheats a little, but her pile is HIGH. I'm much more organized and I usually don't stack anything on top of plates/bowls except for cups. ;)
