One never knows what gets put out on the sidewalks of Boston on trash day. OK, most of it is trash, but once in a while, you find a $1000 stainless steel dishwasher along with the usual crap.
This one was discovered by one of our editors while surfing Craigslist. It was listed as .. "free, first come first served. The only problem is that it leaks...already out on the sidewalk. " Well, nobody here could pass up a deal or challenge such as that!
We were on our way to Rhode Island, but Jay (one of our editors) offered to go pick it up. By the time we got back, it was out on the back deck!
The machine looks to be in pretty good shape. No scratches or dents. It was stainless steel both inside and out. There was no rust anywhere, but it could use a cleaning around the edges.
We have no idea of the mechanical state of this machine, but we now have our Spring RainyDayKitchen/RainyDayRenovation project! How hard could it be to fix a leaky dishwasher anyway? We'll let you know. [Permalink]- Free is Good
