Default Dishwasher suggestion

I'd like to replace a dishwasher and am looking for suggestions for a no
frills unit. All I'd like a

- Integral water heater
- Ability to accept (some) solid food waste
- ON/OFF control. We don't seem to use any other options on this
dishwasher.
- Drying with forced (fan) heated air
- Quiet
- Reliability

We have another dishwasher that is used for china and crystal, etc. so
the one we're replacing is the work horse, pots, pans, and other
(expendable) daily stuff.

Thanks,
Boden

Hmmm,
You wash crystal(real crystal) and china(gold trimmed collectible
vintage) in a washer? What brand/model is it? I wish I could have a
washer safe enough for that task.

well our bosch, the most unreliable appliance we ever owned died at 3
years old...... and 4 failures over that time

replaced it with a whirpool that had 4 control board failures but now
appears fine

however the whirlpool wash is anemic in comparison to the bosch......

i kinda wish we had bought bosch again with a long term warranty

whistles past graveyard

I'm coming up to six trouble-free years with my Bosch. Very quiet and
energy and water efficient, plus the cleaning performance is
outstanding.

Friends of mine have an old RCA dishwasher that continues to soldier
on. Guzzles water and electricity like there's no tomorrow and sounds
like a succession of Studebakers being sucked through a jet engine but
it still works and they have no itention of replacing it until it
dies.

Cheers,
Paul

Pretty much all dishwashers are perfectly safe for crystal and china,
it's the normal dishwasher detergents that are not.

The key here is to not use a conventional dishwasher detergent. That
will destroy crystal. Since this machine sees pretty clean (well
rinsed) surfaces anyway, 2 to 3 ml per load of sodium dodecyl sulfate is
all we use.

There are so many out there. GE, Kitchen Aid, or Whirlpool are the
first that come to my mind.

I'd go with Kitchen Aid or Whirlpool. Our KA has been flawless for four
years now and the last one was about 20 years.
