I've posted articles on Dishwashers before, such as THIS ONE on some very nice Bosch branded washers and THIS more general article on the virtues of portable appliances. Today, however, I examine several key factors to consider when preparing to buy a new dishwasher. As with the purchase of any large household appliance, there are a number of things one ought to consider before buying, but sometimes we get so caught up in the excitement of enhancing our home that we overlook something important and end up later regretting our purchase decision. This blog therefore is dedicated to the hope of not overlooking some key consideration, and thus choosing the best possible appliance the first time around. So read on for a few thoughts on what I consider to be key points to consider when buying a new dishwasher.

Toronto was abuzz August 28-31, as Fan Expo Canada, the nation’s largest annual comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, and gaming event, took over the massive North and South buildings of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The jam-packed Fan Expo schedule included celebrity Q&As, autograph and photo opportunities, workshops with industry professionals, cosplay, and retail and exhibitor areas. With over 100,000 fans attending this year’s convention, the show floor was absolutely packed!
