    I toss in the dish strainer every so often to get the crud out. I've
    thrown in cutlery trays, sink strainers, all those little kitchen
    things not eaten off, per se.

    I don't use the heat element, so nothing's been wrecked so far.

    Like Chemo stated, everything but the knives.

    I know ppl who even toss in hairbrushes and combs.

    I hand wash (as I go when it's practical) my pots and pans, as well as
    my good carving knives. Everything else, including plastics, goes in
    the dishwasher, upper or lower, where ever things fit. Like Kalmia, I
    don't use the heating element so I've never melted anything. Don't
    use wooden spoons or cutting boards, so that's not an issue for me. I
    run a rinse after dinner every night, and a full wash cycle when it
    gets full - usually every two or three days.

    Yes, when needed. The dishwasher also does a good job on grates and
    spill bowls from a gas range as well as mesh filters from the exhaust
    fan (give them their own cycle). I also periodically clean wall switch
    plates in the dishwasher. No heat drying.

    While I put most everything into the dishwasher, I never liked the thought
    of the scrub sponge, vegetable brush, hair brush (Ick!), and so on in the
    machine. I have a bottle of Clorox spray that I use for the scrub sponge,
    and I change my dish cloth and towels very often. When I was growing up, a
    neighbor lady who was a great cook would use the same kitchen towel and bath
    hand towel until they were stiff and gross!! Towels are so easy to wash.
    My heavy wood carving board is never used for raw foods, but it still gets a
    spray with Clorox when used. I put my wooden spoons in the DW with no
    problem. I had one that was my favorite and it went into the DW for 25+
    years. Then one day the garbage disposal was kind of plugged up. Well, I
    grabbed my favorite wooden spoon to give it a poke. Of course the disposal
    ate the end off of my spoon. I am a traditionalist with my kitchen tools.
    I got a new set of beautiful stainless mixing bowls as a gift. I still grab
    my good old Pyrex mixing bowls that are over thirty years old.

    Later,

    Definitely. I tend to put the brushes in the flatware rack on the
    bottom level.

    I figure I live in the wrong century to tolerate much in my kitchen that
    does not go in the dishwasher. If I have a knife that does not go in
    the dishwasher, the problem isn't the dishwasher it's that I have the
    wrong knife. If it does not fit in the dishwasher, the problem is I got
    one too big so I should have gotten a smaller one.

    We do have some old stuff that doesn't go in the machine. Some knives
    that get put in anyways. A couple of cast iron skillets that are the
    rare exception to the rule. Not a lot else.
