I have bought 3 other dishwashers and NONE compare to the turbo zone Kenmore elite for getting all the dirtiest dishes, pots and pans, every item clean with out having to rinse or scrape them first. Love it! Makes doing dishes fast and simple. Noise Level very little noise at all-except when power jets are spraying, but otherwise I have to turn everything else in kitchen off and put ear close to dishwasher to hear if it is really on. Cleaning Time cleaning time for dirty dishes is good compared to my last dw-which took way too long and dishes were not clean unless you washed/rinsed before loading so why have a dishwasher then, right? Loading Flexibility racks are adjustable to fit any size items/load. what a plus! Performance very high cleaning performance for price. best yet I owned. Design I bought it in black to match my other kitchen appliances. looks very attractive and modern sleek shiny finish. buttons are hidden under countertop so grandkids can't see or touch. Durability the only problem I see is the durability of the plastic racks. the handles to move racks are very flimsy and can break with too hard pushing/pressure. that is the only fault of this great dishwasher. if you be very gentle it is ok, but you must be careful moving racks.
