My Bosch has a “half load” feature that I use quite a bit for when I just have a lot of glasses and other lightly soiled dishes. I don’t feel as guilty using it daily.

@lori, my Asko has a “quick wash” for that kind of thing. Also a quick, gentle setting solely for glasses/crystal.

My Miele has a half-load/top rack only feature as well.
