Bad spoon rising: Solid GE dishwasher struggles with silverwareDespite some trouble with spoons, GE's $600 dishwasher performs well for the price.
[MUSIC] One fatal flaw, these spoons hold this dishwasher back from greatness. Don't get me wrong, this $600 GE is a very good dishwasher especially for the price despite these spoons. And it's not a bad cleaner. Really. Yes, those spoons are gross But that's one spot of the dishwasher after a very stressful test with the silverware basket positioned here. One of the cool things about this dishwasher is how many places you can put the silverware basket. And really wherever you put it, or any of the other dishes you throw in there. It's gonna do a great job of cleaning all of it, especially if you scrape your dishes. We saw some redeposit of spinach and chili, but again we're very stressful with our test. Scrape off the bulk and it'll do a great job for you. And for a $600 dishwasher this GE has a lot of features. You can wash bottles on the bottle wash jets. You can wash just the upper or lower rack one at a time if you like. [UNKNOWN] And, the countdown timer is really helpful. Really, almost everything about this GE matches models that cost twice as much. That's why I recommend it, despite those gross spoons. It's a good cleaner. It has a lot of features. What it's missing, is that instead of a stainless steel tub on the inside, that tub is plastic. And the controls are on the front, as opposed to hidden on the upper lip. Which has become more stylish. If you can live without those two style based features, then this bargain dishwasher will give you a lot of bang for your [UNKNOWN]. [MUSIC]
