is dishwasher really THAT bad on non-stick pans??

It's my NSHO that paying BIG money for non-stick cookware is a little silly... the non-stick surface eventually starts to diminish. Am a BIG fan of Calphalon... since had 3 pieces (easily 0 yo) replaced with brand new... just cost to ship them. Seems to me that non-stick likes to hold onto greas/oil a bit and get a tacky feel... when only washed gently with non-abrasive things. Ya can't really SCOUR them. I don't use metal tools in them and have never really had a problem with a surface peeling or breaking down. Wondering what you think about putting in dishwasher... NOT every day.
