I have owned six dishwashers in my lifetime. 3 American, 2 German, 1 Scandinavian. The 3 American dishwashers were well before they made stainless steal interiors. They were noisy, troublesome, rusted quickly and expensive to repair. One of the German machines never needed service, the other needed service 2X in 7 years. The Scandinavian is new so I can't comment. The Scandinavian is by far my favorite so far. Not quite as quiet as the German machines, but the capacity this machine well outweighs its cons. I only wish it had a beam that shined on the floor like my last German machine. This would help me know when it's finished. I really haven't found one negative about this machine. Though it's not top of the line, it's second from the top. Six cycles vs. Twelve. I had 9 on my last German machine and only used AUTO daily! There is a slight learning curve loading this vs the German machines, but nothing so radical that it's hard. All tines fold down which make putting bulky pots in with no trouble. I would recommend this brand to any friend I have. Check this brand out. The four baskets are just fantastic. It beats any American machine out there.
