In Southern California, a homeowner could almost make the argument that an outdoor dishwasher is not a spectacular luxury. Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, a high-end outdoor kitchen equipment company, introduced what it says is the first dishwasher designed for outdoor kitchens at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas last month. It costs $4,990. The company sees the outdoor kitchen as the place to be, not just a spot for an occasional party. "We want you to be able to use this as a primary kitchen," said Russ Faulk, Kalamazoo's vice president of product development.

Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Ian Kennedy will miss his next start after cutting his right index finger while washing dishes last week. Kennedy was scheduled to start one of the games Monday in a doubleheader against the Texas Rangers but will now be replaced by left-hander Tyler Skaggs , who will be recalled from triple-A Reno. Arizona Manager Kirk Gibson said Kennedy cut his finger a couple of days ago and threw a bullpen session on Saturday with a bandage on it. He said the Diamondbacks considered several options that might allow Kennedy to pitch on Monday, including glue, but the team decided not to interfere with the healing process.

Q: One day I heard a pop when I opened my dishwasher and found that the door became twice as heavy. I assume that a spring broke. How do I get to it? P.I., Yorba Linda * A: There are generally two brackets at the top of the dishwasher, says Caesar Del Prato Jr. of Caesar's Appliance Service in Laguna Niguel. You can remove them by sliding them out. The springs are hooked onto the sides of the dishwasher, and once the dishwasher is slid out just a bit, you should be able to access the springs.

My husband went shopping the other day and came home with this find from Crate & Barrel - a trio of soft silicone and nylon measuring cups in papa bear (4 cups/1000 ml), mama bear (2 cups/500 ml) and baby bear (1 cup/200 ml) sizes. They stack neatly inside each other and because the sides aren't rigid, you can squeeze them in slightly, the better to pour. (And also to get out thick or sticky ingredients.) Dishwasher safe, too. 3-piece “Pinch & Pour” measuring cup set available from Crate & Barrel stores and online, $29.95 for the three.

It was a little red snare drum with silver trim, maybe eight inches in diameter, half-hidden among the discarded artifacts of a thrift shop bin with the mismatched glasses, the hot pot holders and the onion choppers. I picked it out and tapped my fingers on the drum head, listening to memories the riff evoked, because I had a toy drum once, too. We all did, in the years before time and maturity sent us marching to more strident cadences.

The call came on the eve of his Los Angeles concert, just as he was leaving his home in Mexico. We have your son. Follow our instructions. Don't make trouble. It was a year ago, and Vicente Fernandez was about to headline four sold-out shows at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena, his annual Memorial Day pilgrimage to the Eastside suburbs of L.A. Now this voice, saying his 33-year-old son, his namesake, was being held for a ransom of millions.

Washing dishes is at once one of our least popular sports and most notorious water users. Running a dishwater can consume up to 15 gallons. And even washing by hand is liable to send five to gallons down the drain. Short of using paper plates or letting Fido lick them clean, here are several ways you can save water. 1. Use the dishwater for full loads only. 2. Dishes only need to be scraped clean, not thoroughly rinsed, before being placed in the dishwater. 3.

QUESTION: I'm getting ready to buy a new dishwasher and would like to find an energy-efficient one. What features should I look for? ANSWER: According to the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, the most energy-efficient dishwasher costs only half as much to run as the least efficient dishwasher on the market today. Don't be surprised to find a range of $25 to $70 a year (local rates) depending on the model.

Customers jam the lime-green booth at a Latino supermarket near downtown Los Angeles. Clutching pay stubs and IDs, they're applying for small loans, enough to cover a car repair or an emergency trip to Mexico or El Salvador. Standing behind counters, tapping furiously on laptop computers, three polo-shirted account executives do the initial screening in about two minutes. "How many dependents live with you?" they ask in rapid-fire Spanish. "How often do you send money home?" Latino immigrants are at the center of one of the nation's most heated political debates.

Manny Diaz greets the servers and places the finishing touches on his daily special: Alaskan salmon on a bed of Moroccan couscous, finished with a passion fruit glaze. "It's Friday, so let's sell lots of fish!" As executive chef of Pacific Grille in downtown Los Angeles, Diaz designs the menu, directs a staff of eight and prepares meals for more than 100 customers every day. It's a far cry from the first job he got after sneaking across the border in 1981: washing dishes.

"RACHEL Getting Married," a new movie from director Jonathan Demme and starring Anne Hathaway, opened this month and quickly became a surprise hit. In the film, Hathaway plays a recovering drug addict who's released from rehab to join her sister's raucous Connecticut wedding. Another surprise came for screenwriter Jenny Lumet, daughter of director Sidney Lumet, who didn't foresee tapping into a widespread obsession with loading the dishwasher. A crucial scene in "Rachel" involves a dishwasher-loading contest, in which the father of the bride and the bridegroom battle against the clock to discover who has the better dishwasher-loading moves.

Some people have trouble with washing dishes; others do not. Take a careful look at these two groups of people. Their work patterns show some subtle differences. Because food preparation is the largest work process in most homes, these seemingly insignificant details are greatly magnified. One woman stopped to chat at a recent workshop. "I can't figure out why I have a problem. I live by myself. I am divorced and my four children are raised. For 20 years, my children washed the dishes.

WE come now to the inevitable result of our addiction to fame: the celebrity dishwasher. Meet Pete Jordan, a San Francisco slacker whose vague plan to bust suds in all 50 states has spawned a 350-page memoir. "Dishwasher" began life as a zine Jordan published during his years as an itinerant scrubber, and the book retains the informal charms of its previous incarnation.
