Don't judge this Kenmore dishwasher by its ordinary exterior

Dishwashers
[MUSIC] What do you sacrifice when you save money on a dishwasher? It's a good question to ask yourself if you're thinking about buying a more budget-friendly option because at least with this $700 Kenmore behind me, you're not sacrificing cleaning performance. Kenmore $700 dishwasher is a great cleaner. Scoring just over 90% on a really stressful test, investing models that cost hundreds more in the process. It's seriously awesome. Talking about Second off, it has a bunch of options and cycles to choose from, including all the basic cycles you'd expect from a higher-end model. It also has this really cool turbo zone option. What you do is you put a casserole dish in the back of the rack, facing these specialized jets. Turn on the turbo zone, and this Kenmore's going to give that dish an extra scrub. So, what do you sacrifice if you pay less For this dishwasher. Well, the main thing is that it has a plastic tub on the interior, as opposed to a stainless steel tub that helps you save energy over time. It also looks pretty plain, especially the buttons on the top that feel plasticky and cheap. And, it's missing some nicer extras, like fold-down tines. It has one set, but that's not a lot of extra flexibility. What I missed most, though, are wine stem holders. This structure doesn't have any of them. An if you try to put wine glasses in those uppermost columns, it actually will knock them into the side of the dishwasher when you try to push it in. So, yeah, on closer examination you do have to sacrifice a little bit to save some money on the $700 Kenmore dishwasher. But, it's roomy enough It has plenty of cycle options and plenty of cleaning power as well. In fact, it's a good cleaner at any price. So if you're okay with the bland looks, I strongly recommend this $700 Kenmore as a lower mid-range option. [SOUND]
