Summary: Our 10 year old washer was starting to give out and I spent a few days researching what to get to replace it. It came down to the Bosch and the KitchenAid. After looking at both of these models online and in the store, I decided on the KitchenAid for a couple of reasons. For one, even though the Bosch was technically the same size as the KitchenAid, the interior and the racks were smaller.
Summary: so we moved into an older house and used the dishwasher that was here for almost 2 years. It recently died so after much research, we decided on this dishwasher to replace it. Pros: I am very happy with this machine! It holds so many dishes. We (family of four) used to run the dishwasher at least once a day, sometimes twice. with this dishwasher, i run it only about every other day, because i don't get it full by the end of the day since it holds so much more.
Summary: "Great price, 0% financing, delivery smooth:) My expectations are extremely high so I am not fair when I give it a 4 because with the hard water we deal with, thankful the dishwasher has a salt dispenser which does empty sooner than I would like. The phosphorus being out of all dishsoap doesn't help make cleaning 100% with Any dishwasher, but this washer does the BEST considering what it has to work with and I am grateful to have it over my GE.
Summary: The quality of washing is good. It is good even for pots and pans. However it has few problems. It spends a long time to wash. About 2 hours if I do not use some additional features. Sophisticated geometry of top rack is designed probably to make sure that water is not accumulated on the bottom of cups (cups should be placed bottom up). However it does not help. The same time I need some creativity to make sure that cup does not fall during wash cycle.
Summary: I bought another Kitchen Aide dishwasher because the 1st one lasted so long trouble free (12 yrs) but it started to look weathered so I replaced it. I liked the kuds30cx because it contempory look & style. I wanted another well built machine so I could get another 10 plus years out of it. The stainless steel tube sold me especially for the price. So far, I am a happy camper.
