Our last dishwasher cost a fortune and died after 1 year so we were very particular in the model we were choosing for this purchase. We did our research and shopped around. We are so pleased with this model! It cleans better than any dishwasher we have owned in the past. Priced reasonably. It is slick and easy to use. It is a bit noisier than I would have expected for the advertised noise level. That being said, i wouldn't call it noisy, just a tad noisier than I would have expected. Love the design - looks great in our kitchen. Overall it is a great machine! Very happy with it. Would certainly recommend the service we received from our local Frigidaire dealer. They were wonderful! Noise Level A little noisier than I would have thought but wouldn't call it noisy by any means. Cleaning Time Finishes the job in a reasonable amount of time. Loading Flexibility Flexible in that there are rungs that can be flipped back and forth to fit different sized cups and dishes. Performance No issues at all. Works great! Design Beautiful and sleek. Durability So far so good. Impressed with the durability.
