Product Reviews
Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Dishwasher It looks durable and it does a great job. Dishes are clean without prewashing 5/2/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by Modern, quiet, sanitizes. You can pack a lot of dishes in here. The interior seems larger than older model dishwashers. It runs quiet. So many people have told me to go with Kitchenaid and I can see that there is quailty in their product. I love the stainless steel interior. I only gave it a 4 star on performance. That is because after it dries, and you open it, there is still some water on the walls and door. However, all the dishes are completely dry and I do use the "sanitize" heat cycle so maybe it's just something I need to get used to. I have to say -- I do love it. And it has cool blue led lights that come on depending upon the features you select when you run it. Try to catch some good rebates on this one to bring the price down. It is still a fair price, I think, because for about 400.00 you can buy a piece of junk. This is a bit more but it brings you up to date with all the latest features. 7/3/09
