You're joking right?Nope. It takes about as much time to load/unload dishes into the dishwasher as it does into the sink.No, it takes far longer to load a dishwasher properly than it does to drop dishes in a sink. But that's not how I hand wash, anyway. I fill up the left sink half way with soapy water, the right sink with rinsing water, and set a towel on the counter to the right. Dishes get scraped into the trash, stacked to the left, get washed, rinsed, then piled on the towel to drip until all the dishes are washed. Then they get dried with a different towel and put away (by me or someone else). It takes less than 20 minutes to do dinner dishes (including cookware and serving pieces) for 10 people that way. I can clean the whole kitchen in the time it takes the dishwasher to just do the dishes "halfway". The dishwasher takes at least 30 minutes just to cycle, and you still have to add in loading, drying, and unloading time, plus putting things back in for another cycle that didn't get cleaned. Lipstick on glasses, for instance, or the disgusting cycle of dishes that came out filthier than when they went in, because "the water softener ran out of pellets". And you shouldn't put the fancy china or the plated flatware in the dishwasher, so those have to be washed by hand, too.
