Get a new dishwasher! Okay, maybe that’s not practical. Sorry about this 🙁

Buy a new dishwasher. We got ours–a pretty nice one–for around $600. Chances are, that’s equal or less than your new dishes, and not only are you sentimental about your dishes, but if your dishwasher doesn’t have adjustable racks, it’s probably pretty basic or relatively old 🙂

lol. I couldn’t resist making this. First world problems are hilarious! I’m sure you wouldn’t have to handwash all 12 daily, right?

Oh, no!

@HeMadeMeWantTo:  Haha, first world problems.

OP, not to make light. It’s kinda funny, but I imagine really frustrating. I felt the same way when I unpacked by beautiful new knives, pots and pans, and silicone and stone baking dishes, and realised they were all handwash only.

I suggest a new dishwasher. Unless it’s an apartment. But it would suck to have to return all those dishes.

FutureMrsCassar  , Those were my thoughts too! I don’t see the big deal, but then again I’ve never used a dishwasher. I guess I can see a problem with it if the dishes are heavy. I hate washing heavy dishes. I recently got rid of all my heavy dishes and got a Corelle set. Love Corelle!

I haven’t had a dishwasher in 8 years (since I lived in Texas, land of enormous houses and lots of appliances, lol). So, in my world, i’d keep the dishes.

I haven’t had a dishwasher since I was 4 and we removed it for more cabinet space.  Washing dishes by hand isn’t hard.  And if the only thing you have to wash are the dishes themselves (no silverware, cups, pots, pans, etc.) it will literally take you 10 minutes max.  Especially if you soak them in hot water.  Go work a culinary job- dishwasher in a restaurant for example.  Then you’ll realize how not big a deal it is to wash a few plates at home.

I think it depends on how old your current dishwasher is. If it’s relatively new I would return the plates, if it’s older then I would sell it and put some of that money towards a new one that would fit the dishes.

Fiance and I hate doing dishes. Neither of us ever have motivation to do them so they pile up and they seriously stress me out. We don’t have room for a dishwasher in our condo but is a must-have when we get a house. Yes, washing dishes doesn’t take that long, but I’d much rather put that time towards other things (and it can be super annoying having to wash tons of dishes by hand after having company).

Aw. It might seem like an easy thing especially to people used to not having a dishwasher – but OP, I wouldn’t want to wash the dinner plates every night either. 🙁  

Sorry to hear that!

@Adams_bee:  I don’t find it crazy that having a dishwasher that can wash all the dishes would be high on a priority list. I look at it this way: why keep an appliance that doesn’t fulfill all of your needs? (:

OP, no matter what I think you should keep the dishes you love, you probably wouldn’t take the dishwasher with you if you move but you’ll most likely take the dishes and keep them for years and years and years (:
