KitchenAid Classic Series Dishwasher
So you've been asking about The Kitchen. Well, I have lots to share, but for now, let me just tell you about this dishwasher that we bought from Lowe's today. I'm pretty stoked about the $375 price tag (including free delivery) that we managed to negotiate down from $799. Thanks to a stroke of luck and a manager who was high on pain medication, we will no longer have to eat off of those paper plates that fold in two whenever you try to eat anything heavier than one sixteenth of an ounce. (We actually have the older version of this same KitchenAid model in The Pad By The Sea, and I looove it.) It's quiet and it gets the job done without any pre-washing.
I hate pre-washing.
Anyway. I never shopped at big box stores for appliances in the past, because I had a relationship with a warehouse in South Florida that they couldn't compete with, but a few weeks ago, I scored this $329 Roper dryer for $224 (including delivery and installation) for The University Townhouse. I was able to arrange and negotiate between three Lowe's locations over the phone, and it was surprisingly easy and efficient.
Here's hoping that my streak of good Lowe's luck continues (at least until The Kitchen wraps up)!
