Everyone knows that Frigidaire is no Samsung, GE, or even a LG but they are very efficient machines. We bought this specific dishwasher due to it being on sale and well below the price of other competitors. We were not expecting too much from it but we were pleasantly surprised. It is very quiet when running and the size is pretty much standard as other dish washers. My wife loves the different cycles available and I love that it is cost effective. It is hard to say about its water or electric consumption as we bought it about a month ago. The look is sleek being stainless steel and we have already got compliments from visitors. We hope it is long lasting bu only time will tell. Noise Level Its very quiet when fully loaded. We usually run it at night. Design It has a very modern look and have got multiple compliments on it. It is easy to clean the outside stainless steel with wipes. Durability We bought it about a month ago but thus far we have had no issues with it what so ever.
