Frigidaire's top rack bottoms outThe $650 Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher has a lot going for it, especially for the price, but the top rack in particular is a pain to use.
[MUSIC] So the top rack of this $650 Frigidaire gallery dishwasher is dumb. Frigidaire were definitely trying something innovative with this tines that fold out and remind me of Spider legs, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what they were trying to do. We follow the recommended loading pattern whenever we're testing a dish washer, and doing that with these top racks meant we had to scrape our glasses past our bowls to make them fit. The top rack is really poorly arranged. So, this dish washer is a unique one, and I recommend you take that instruction manual with that recommended loading pattern and go ahead and just chuck it out the window, because if you can find a good spot for your glasses and bowls, everything else about this dish washer is pretty good, especially for the price. So, at $650 and for that This price has a lot of cycles, a lot of options. Though there's some overkill here. I don't need to decide if I want my water to surge or spray. But that's fine, it's better to have too many features than too little. The stainless finish looks good, and resists smudges well. And most importantly, this Frigidaire Gallery Dishwasher cleans your dishes. The only problem part, surprise, surprise, that top rack. So if you want to save some money on a dishwasher. I do recommend this $650 Frigidaire Gallery. It looks good, it has plenty of features and cycle options, and it cleans your dishes well. Just make sure you scrape your dishes before you toss them in there. And just space them out a little bit on that top rack. [SOUND]
