Getting the spin on dishwashers
Models boasting drawers and water softeners fail to impress
Need a new dishwasher that won’t break the budget? You can pay as little as $500 to clean your grimiest dishes of baked-on food. More good news: Some premium features, such as hidden controls and half-load wash cycles, are migrating down to the $500-to-$600 range.All the models Consumer Reports recommended are energy- and water-efficient., Efficiency, however, doesn’t matter if you can’t trust what you’re buying to last.
