This is my first dishwasher, so it's very nice to not have to do it all by hand anymore! We picked this one, well... because it's Bosch and my husband said it has a good leak prevention thing inside the door. I noticed right away that it is super easy to load (and it even came with some instructions with a diagram on how to load it for beginners like me!) It was SUPER quiet the whole time it was on, silent! The dishes came out very clean. The only downside is it doesn't dry very good. Some dishes are a little wet afterwards (mainly cups on the top rack), so I let them air out for a little.
