Relative Value of Appliances
I would rather have one of these, than I had one of these.
I hate washing dishes, don't get me wrong, but I can wash dishes by hand. What I cannot do is make ice by hand.
The dish washing I can manage by doing a reasonable amount of clean up while cooking and by never allowing dirty dishes to accumulate. I need fairly large quantities of ice every time I make stock or want to brine something. In fact, a want for ice is most often the one thing that makes me think twice about making stock.
