This is the nicest dishwasher I have ever owned. We replaced a Kenmore with this Bosch and it has been sparkly clean dishes ever since. The filter in the bottom is excellent at capturing any food particles that were failed to be rinsed out by our children and it also comes out for cleaning much easier than any other dishwasher I have ever used. I wish it had those things that flip down to keep wine glasses upright, but other than that I love the layout of the racks and everything is so high quality. Every load comes out clean and I never fear anything that shouldn't get washed down the drain (like the tooth pick that killed our old dishwasher). I love that the button are on the edge that is against the counter and that I can cut the power to the dishwasher completely with the power button. The indicator light for the rise agent being empty is so helpful to this busy mom who often didn't notice until dishes were polka dotted. I have found the basic Cascade gel works the best in this, and plain vinegar is perfect as a rinse agent. I have not stopped telling people and even showing everyone who comes to our home this dishwasher!
