We have had this dishwasher for 3 1/2 years now. We have 2 adults and 2 kids in our family, so the dishwasher has seen its share of different washing situations, everything from bottles to hard crusted on snack plates. It seems to work fine, nothing great, but especially in the first couple years it was fine. There are holes in the spinning water dispensers that can get clogged very easily, even with things you would never think would get in the small hole. So if your dishwasher seems to be doing a less than adequate job, that's the first place to check. It is supposed to be quiet, and I think it is all right. It is not super loud. There are not too many settings on this, no sanitizing or anything, but it does give you the option for hot wash or not and hot dry or not as well as light, normal, and heavy settings. I would recommend it as an affordable option. Noise Level Not bad. Cleaning Time Takes about an hour to wash and an hour to dry. Loading Flexibility Fits most dishes. Average size Performance Works fine, if cleaned on a semi-regular basis. Design Nothing fancy, but works. Durability Has lasted us for 3 years so far.
