Best Uses
Comment:
I like to run dishwashers daily but not when they are not full--with two people, that can take a while. I run one of the drawers most days. It is quiet, cleans very well, and when you have a lot of people, you can vary the use--eg, crystal in one drawer, pots and pans in the other drawer. We have purchased these for four different homes, starting back in 2001. Never had any trouble until the last version--pulling up on the handle made them break and you had to replace the entire unit. This is a problem that should be fixed.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I've had two single units, one on each side of the sink, for over 7 years now. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! Only one service call has been needed the whole time. They are super quiet while running and have had to put my ear to them more than once to make sure they're even running. Mine are the integrated units and they blend right into the cabinetry and look fabulous. Yes, they are more expensive than a single, typical unit, but well worth the extra price! I've also used them as a cooler for gatherings at my house...remove the rack, add ice and beverages. At the end of the day, drain and put the rack back in. As for load, I've hosted my daughter's volleyball team dinners (15 girls at a time) and all their dishes fit in one unit! These are a must have for anyone who can afford them!
