Summary: The sales listings tout how quiet and energy efficient it is. It is quiet. It is energy efficient because it does not have heated drying !! The dishes are never completely dry ! Carbon steel knives become rust spotted. Stainless steel knives do not become spotted. Every coffee mug has a lake of water staring at you when you open it after a cycle. The cycles are very long, mainly 3 hours !
Summary: Our old kitchenaid dishwasher had better capacity and easier loading than anything out there today. However, even with a front vent, the steam was was damaging the cabinets, taking the paint off within months of repainting. The new models of kitchenaid, jennaire, whirlpool etc. are even worse because the vent is on the side. The Bosch does not have a vent. Other models that either had vents on the bottom or no vents were GE and LG.
