Comment:
Plain and simple: this is a dishwasher that doesnt wash dishes very well. We've gotten to the point where we essentially hand wash the dishes before we put them in the machine, which kind of defeats the purpose. This dishwasher also doesnt dry the dishes very well. It's really more of a dish-wetter than a dishwasher.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
