About - Kenmore Elite 12793

The Kenmore Elite 12793 is part of the dishwasher test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, dishwasher models like the Elite 12793 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing:
Assessed by running the normal or equivalent cycle to clean a full load--10 place settings of very dirty dishes that were scraped but not rinsed. We examine the dishes and glassware for residual food after cleaning.

Drying:
Drying is our assessment of how thoroughly a model dries plastic items, the most stubborn in any load. We evaluate drying performance using the same cycle we use for our Washing test. As directed by manufacturers, we use rinse aid in every load.

Energy use:
For a normal cycle. The largest portion is needed for heating water, both at the water heater and in the machine.

Major features such as the TurboZone power-scrubbing mode tend to be shared among the higher-priced Kenmore models ($650 and up) and the Elite models.
