Do you have a third shelf dishwasher?

I have a whirlpool dishwasher that is about 10 years old and is nearing the end of it's life. I am looking at replacements so I can budget it's replacement. The thing I absolutely LOVE about this dishwasher is that it has a third rack at the bottom for larger flat dishes. Such as my 12" skillet, serving platters, lids etc.

The problem I'm encountering is that the only ones I can find with the third shelf (Bosch and Kitchen Aid brand) are $1,500-2,000! Yikes! I don't want to spend quite that much on a new washer.

So my question is if you have one, what brand is it? If you don't have one with a third shelf, what do you recommend? Pro's? Con's?

I have a third shelf, but it's at the top for small/long items (spatulas and such).  I love it.  But that could be because it cleans and my previous one didn't.  But I do find it convenient.  I have a Bosch.  But the important thing to me was that it cleaned.  Clean dishes are worth it.

I am seeing a lot of this. I don't mind it, but I love being able to wash my platters and such.
