Default do germans clean pots and pans in a dishwasher

we have a 4 yr old Bosch dishwasher and like it but it differs from us brand washers-
- you have to select a cycle, push start, and then close the door. Many whirlpool machines you just select a cycle and close the door

what I really wonder about is the instruction manual pictures that show the racks loaded with dishes dont show ANY pots or pans- is that a germany cultural thing?
the insides are about an 1 inch smaller than us made/designed washers due to the "condensation drying system- maybe showing pots and pans in the pix would make it look even smaller

Better quality pots, pans, knifes, and plates do not ever see the inside of our dishwasher.

I don't know if Germans put pots and pans in their dishwashers.

I don't think you can categorically track pots & pans along ethnic lines, but as mentioned above, you don't put all clad or calphalon pans in a dishwasher.
Maybe there is more of a link between people with expensive pans and people with expensive dishwashers?

I don't know if they do - but they make one hell of a dishwasher. We have a Bosch in the house we jut bought, looks to be 10+ years old - cleans better than any dishwasher I've ever owned and you can't tell when its running.

We (German folk) wash all pots and pans by hand. But we also hang pickles on our Christmas trees.

Better quality pots, pans, knifes, and plates have absolutely no problem whatsoever inside of a dishwasher. An exception would be knives with riveted wood handles. Not putting them in the dishwasher reinforces the illusion those thing were worth all that extra money you paid for them.

Germans don't have dishwashers. They make them and export them.

According to Consumer Reports, after 5-years any dishwasher isn't worth the cost of the repair. Part of the criteria is improvements in technology -- better cleaning, uses less resources, etc.

Ja, aber das ist über Geschirrspüler und Pfannen und Töpfe. Ich denke, das sind Überverkauft Erzeugnisse wie waschmaschinen.

Some people beat the crap out of $250K boats too!! They then complain that the engines don't run well and ask why is my hull cracking.

I am of German decent, as is my wife. We wash out pots and pans in the dishwasher so I do not think it is genetic.

Well, it could be genetic and you are genetically broken.
