This Roper 24 inch Built In Dishwasher actually is a pretty good one. It does a good job of cleaning and rinsing the dishes, but it is still a good idea to scrape the food off of the dishes and rinse them well before putting them in the dishwasher. This model is very basic but it still gets the job done. It is a bit noisy, but it doesn't bother me. The price was not bad, so it is fairly affordable as well. I don't have space or a hook up for a dishwasher where I live now, but I certainly wish I did and I would purchase this one if I could. Noise Level I would have to say that this dishwasher is quite loud as far as the noise level, but it is ok with me. When I had one I just turned the television or music up a little bit. I never had a quiet dishwasher anyway, so i was used to the sounds that it made. Cleaning Time I think that the cleaning and rinse cycle times were probably about average. I really didn't even time it. I just put the dishes and soap in it and set it and then I would go in the other room and relax. Loading Flexibility It was easy enough to load and didn't take too long to do it. Performance The performance was fine and it did a good job. Design The design and look of the dishwasher was very nice, sleek and modern. Durability I would say that the durability was about average, but I never had dishwashers for a long time anyway.
