I didn't see an existing thread so I figured I'd start one off. :D

We just had a Christmas of three this year but as usual, I still cooked for a family of 10 despite trying my best to get the smallest turkey, half recipes, cut back on sweets, etc.

I started pics....

And then never finished.  I took two pics while I was cooking in the morning, missed the third rack and then never took pics of the clean load.  As usual, though, everything came out spotless.  I have the same affliction as you.  I don't know how to cook for a small crowd.  I cooked for the two of us and the family we cook for (who are in quarantine) and that was another two people.  I made WAY too much.


BTW, how do you like your Kitchen Aid?  My sister has one on order.  They told her it would take about two months and that's when she ordered it over Thanksgiving weekend.

I hate how whirlpool...

I hate how Whirlpool doesn't market their dishwasher filtration on their latest models on their own line.

What cycle did you use for the load and how long did it take to complete?

The first machine is the main, a KitchenAid KDTM604KPS, and the second is a 2004 Whirlpool PowerClean.

The KA ran a ProWash (Sensor) cycle and a Cascade Platinum pack, and the timer starts at 2:14 but it usually jumps down a few times during the cycle, particularly in the final rinse when it will jump from ~:30 to ~:20. Then the PowerClean ran Normal with Hi Temp Wash, Air Dry as always, and everything in both machines emerged spotless. I meant to get pics of the PC but *someone* (Gan Gan, ahem) likes to pull from the dishwashers to get what she needs rather than just getting from the cabinet or drawer lol. So there are a few empty spots, including the entire silverware basket.
