Stu was so very sad

Stu was so very sad

Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice – An Editor’s Note:  I was under the influence of a lot of happy people wearing sparkly dresses (vacationing in Disney and attending the Disney Social Media Moms Conference) when I wrote this review.

Once upon a time, there was a sad little dishwasher. For the sake of the story, we’ll call him Stu.

Stu was 8 years old.  Try as he might, he just couldn’t do what he was supposed to do.  Day after day, his family put dirty dishes into his racks and one very loud hour later, they still came out dirty.

His family was frustrated with his inefficiencies.  And Stu was frustrated that he just couldn’t get the job done, as any formerly virile appliance would be.

Stu frequently got stopped up (as old folks often do) and he’d often cause his family’s disposal to back up.

Ed & Curtis take Stu away

His family was disappointed, and Stu was sad because he was so very tired.  He longed to retire to a retirement community where he could claim social security, watch NCIS re-runs and wear Isotoner slippers every day.

For many years, this sad story continued:  Stu not getting the job done, dirty dishes, unhappy people.

Then one day, something magical happened.  The Frigidaire Fairies showed up.  (Their names were Ed and Curtis.)  They brought something shiny.  And pretty.  When it twirled, it sparkled.

The new dishwasher was perfect.  When it ran, it hummed so quietly, his family couldn’t hear him.  When they opened him up, they found clean dishes!


Prince Charming rides in on his (moving van) steed

The family named the new dishwasher Prince Charming.  He is a Frigidaire Professional Built-In Dishwasher.  He’s the quietest dishwasher in his class.  With the SpaceWise Organization System, his family can fit so many more dishes into one load than they ever could in Stu’s racks.

Stay tuned for more on Prince Charming’s wonderful qualities.

And in case you are wondering — just like every other fairy tale, this one has a happy ending too.  Stu ended up in the Junkyard Retirement Community where he plays bingo every Wednesday and will never again have to wash a dish.

I wrote this review while participating in a Test Drive Campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Frigidaire and will be receiving a Frigidaire Refrigerator, Range/Microwave, Washer/Dryer set, and a Dishwasher to facilitate my review.

    notice you passed your 1000th post! A confetti throwing moment for sure. . .
    and, loved your review(still laughing) about Stu-

    so pleased Stu is happy in his retirement. . LOL!
    all i can say is ‘Move over Dave Barry. . . . . Whitney is here. . .

  2. Loved your post. So sorry to hear about Stu but it sounds like he’s very happy now since he’s out of the washing business. Prince Charming looks so handsome. What a guy!!! I might find my own Frigidaire Prince Charming. He sounds like the silent type, but the type who gets things done right!!! My kind of guy!!!

  3. Great post! I’m glad you fond your Prince Charming for the kitchen!

  4. So, Stu’s best friend, Stan, misses him so much. He can’t wait to join Stu in the retirement community. In fact, ever since Stu went away, Stan is dragging even more than before.

    Poor Stan! (not to mention, poor Stan’s owner who is a bit jealous of shiny Prince Charming!)
