  • The dishwasher I have no is just okay. It was a cheaper GE. No problems with it really. It is just load. I do a load a day on the average. The dishwasher I want is one like my sister has. It is a KitchenAid with stainless stell interior. It is so quiet too. No stains inside. The racks don't chip or peel. Oh just found it online. I will post it next.

  • We have a BOSCH and I love it. We bought it one year ago because the one in our house was broken (we had just bought it). I think it has three settings, is VERY quiet, and we use it probably once every two days.

  • She has exactly that model and she bought it over 7 years ago. She has never complained about it. It truly is one of the best I've seen and I've had a lot of dishwashers.
