OK. Who’s unloaded their dishwasher and found a dish or piece or utensil that wasn’t exactly spotless. No I don’t mean it had a water spot, I mean it had a piece of dirt on it. I admit there has been an occasion or two (or three or ten) where something I needed wasn’t as clean as it could have been and I wiped it out and gave it to my husband to use. Not my children, mind you! I can only blame my dishwasher. It’s about fifteen years old and even in it’s prime was not what one would consider a top of the line model. It’s done it’s job but it’s day in the sun has long past. In fact, it hasn’t seen the sun in so long that it’s white as a ghost. Anyway. Back to the dirty dishes. Turns out I’m not the only one. Check out this info that I got from Frigidaire.
Did you know that nearly 30 million American dishwasher owners have served a dirty dish when their dishwasher failed to get it completely clean? A recent study commissioned by Frigidaire® found that spouses and significant others were most often on the receiving end, with more than 15 million respondents admitting to feeling most comfortable serving their spouse or significant other a dish that had to be “wiped” clean. However, less than one out of five dishwasher owners felt comfortable serving their in-laws and children a dish that wasn’t fully clean.
Now, with the introduction of the new Frigidaire Gallery® Dishwasher with OrbitClean™ Wash Arm, friends and family no longer have to fall victim to a dirty dish in disguise. The new dishwasher features four times better water coverage and delivers the best drying performance with the SaharaDry™ Cycle, eliminating the need to re-wash, re-dry or re-run the dishwasher. Plus, the performance is so quiet, you won’t even realize the dishwasher is running.
To celebrate this new innovation, which “gets it right the first time,” Frigidaire® is teaming up with Jennifer Garner to give one lucky fan the ultimate do-over. Whether it’s a bad first date or a vacation gone wrong, users can submit a moment they wished they got right the first time around at Facebook.com/Frigidaire for a chance to get it right the first time. And, for each do-over submitted, Frigidaire® also will donate $1 to Save the Children.
 This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Frigidaire from April 12-16, 2012 among 2,215 U.S. adult adults ages 18 and older, among whom 1,592 own and use a dishwasher.
 Based on industry standard dryability testing using Effortless™ Dry
 Frigidaire will donate $1.00 to Save the Children for each Submission uploaded during the Submission Phase (5/14/2012 – 6/10/2012) and for each vote cast during the Voting Phase (6/13/2012 – 7/1/2012) with a minimum $35,000 and a maximum of $40,000, as part of our $500,000 commitment to Save the Children’s U.S. Programs.
I will be entering, of course. I’d love a new dishwasher, so I can put the one that I’ve out to pasture. One of its two cycles doesn’t work and it leaks. Plus, I have a Frigidaire fridge and microwave and have never had a problem with those, so I’d think the dishwasher would be made of the same quality. They are, in fact, the only two appliances that I own that I got new and that are working correctly. The same cannot be said for my oven/stove, or my washer and dryer. Good luck to all who enter, especially me!
