Ah, the great dishwasher debate: We like to revisit it as often as possible, because it always sparks interesting conversation.

Letting the dishes air dry is a much better option -- so what if your dishwasher opened for you, to help expedite the process?
That's what this Miele dishwasher does, it automatically opens and closes to aid the air-drying process.
Sounds interesting. But then again, couldn't you open the dishwasher yourself?
