Summary: This dishwasher is perfect for my family of four. Prior to receiving the item, I thought the rack was a stainless steel metal without any coating. The metal is coated so it won't scratch the dishes. I initially worried that my dishes would not fit in the machine (many people complained about this problem). My 10.75" dishes fit in the machine with more than an inch clearance from the top.
Summary: I dont like the way some of the soap doesn't disolve out of the cups. I tried a new one by oxiclean and the dishes were clean but the soap didnt wash out of the cups all the way. I even tried less soap and had the same issue. tried one of the tabs like casscade and it disolved so I think it was the soap not the washer. overall I like it.
Summary: I love this dishwasher. It's perfect for a one or two person household. I had an older version which was fine for about 6 years but then started leaking through the plastic window panel in the front, and also eventually water supply was slow. Since it cost me less than $300 it was good value for money spent over the years. Eventually relented and replaced with this new model. This one is a great improvement.
Summary: What can I say? I have accidentally (forgot to look) purchased 3 house lacking dishwashers - current one included. I have a home operated business and finally said again - I need a dishwasher if I'm going to really keep up with the house. This unit does everything it claims to do and is every bit as efficient as a built-in or floor model portable.
