I love our Bosch. It can be configured in so many different ways. A rack for wine glasses would not be important to me because I insist on hand washing our stemware. We use the eco-clean setting on our washer, which eliminates the heat dry cycle. I’d rather conserve energy since the dishes are usually dry by the time we unload them (wash overnight, unload the next evening). The most important thing to us is how quiet it is. Our kitchen and family room are open, great room style, so I don’t want the sound level of the dishwasher to interfere with watching TV or talking if we have to run a load while we are in the family room.

I’m curious too – we desperately need a new dishwasher as our current one smells funky and the tops of the divider things in the racks are all rusted and nasty.  Good idea looking during the labor day sales, I will have to do that too!

The most important feature I have found with our new dishwasher, is having a water sprayer for the top rack!  Our old dishwasher was gross because there was only the one water sprayer on the bottom so all the food from the plates got stuck to the cups and bowls on the top rack.  SO nasty!!

@cutexkitty:  Spotting is generally because of hard water, which a lot of areas have. Go spray your car and let it ‘air dry’, it will likely spot too. I’ve found there isn’t much you can do besides heat dry or at least dry it with a towel right away.

We’ve got a KitchenAid dishwasher and love it. Last owners installed it a year or so prior to moving and it’s wonderful. Super quiet, always get everything off, and no spots when we heat dry. I’ve never not used heat dry (DH empties the dishwasher and refuses to dry them if he wants to empty it right away), so I can’t comment on spots without but I would assume ours would have them since we have hard water.

I don’t remember what mine is, but my parents have a really fancy GE that you can fill with a month worth f soap and it is supposed to disoense as needed. Which is a good thing I guess ecause the little thing on the door where you normally put soap actually can NOT open when the door is closed – it’s stupidly designed that the dish rack blocks it shut. This is just one of the problems my mom has with it. She basically has to orewash all her dishes before using it. Kind of defeats the purpose…
