Frigidaire dishwasher does well enough to be a backup option

Dishwashers
[MUSIC] This $850 Frigidaire dishwasher has few good things going for. It's got a piece stainless within the controls and this is smudge proof stainless which resist finger prints well, plus nice touch the door stays in place where you put it which is nice when you wanna leave a crack. It has this cool wine stem holders that do a great job of securing you nice glasses, it has orbit wash those blue arms at the bottom which reaches all the dishes pretty well and scrapes away tough dirt. It has plenty of cycles and plenty of options and upper rack that raises and lowers easily This $850 Frigidaire dishwashers even has the company's new even dry feature which uses a fan to circulate heat and get the drops off of your plates and bowls. Even dryer works pretty well. Unlike a lot of other extra drive cycles, when we've turned on the heat dry, the dishes still came out cool of the touch and they only had a few droplets here and there and a relatively low number of water Works. But ready for the other shoe to drop? Nothing about this mid-range model helps it stand out from the crowd. And its cleaning scores are just okay. And I like the even dry feature, but it's still not the best power dry cycle we've seen. It has fold down tines but no creative extras or options. No third rack. So this $850 Frigidaire is competent. It's worth putting on your list of possibilities especially if you can find it at a discount. But it's more of a fine model that you settle on rather than an exceptional model that you should seek out.
