Our family has owned our GE Adora Built-in dishwasher for 6 years, and we feel we have gotten our money's worth out of it. I wash 1 -2 loads in this dishwasher every day, and it is still running strong. After 6 years - a few of the plastic parts are beginning to show wear. The cleaning power is strong - I just began rinsing my dishes this year, previously I would leave everything on them. Either way - rinsing or not - this dishwasher always brings them clean. We would recommend this product, and purchase the same dishwasher again ourselves! Noise Level It does make noise, but I prefer "white" noise from time to time and so do not consider this an inconvenience! Loading Flexibility This dishwasher has plenty of room. Basket compartments in the bottom allow for washing bottle parts, or small objects. Durability We have owned this dishwasher for 6 years, and it is still going strong.
