Dishwashers Buying Guide

What do cereal, egg yolk, and raspberry jam have in common? Their dried-on, baked-on, caked-on residue is tough for any dishwasher to tackle. In our tests we ask more of a dishwasher than you probably ever will—we load 10 place settings slathered with those foods. They sit overnight, then are washed using the normal cycle. We record cycle time, judge how noisy each machine is, and assess how well the plastics dried.
