This is the best dishwasher I have ever owned. It is very quiet, and does the job! It is lightweight, but does the heavy duty job required in my household. My dishes are cleaner than expected. This dishwasher saves time, energy, and the hassle of having to wash dishes myself. I couldn't be happier! In my busy household, we needed a dishwasher that could handle the load that we would place on it. This model does exactly that and more. We run it at least twice a day and the durability and sustainability of this model has been unmatched. Pre-washing and pre-soaking are things of the past with this dishwasher, which makes my life so much easier.
