Stripped down Kenmore dishwasher keeps its cleaning power intactThe $500 Kenmore 13479 has no features or style to speak of, but my goodness it can clean.
[MUSIC] This is the second Kenmore dishwasher we've tested that's really pleasantly surprised me. I mean, look at this thing. My god it's bland. And it doesn't get any better on the inside. There's no real features, there's no fold down tines, there's only a couple of cycles and options to pick from. The tub is plastic and you can't even adjust the height of the upper rack. But that's okay this dishwasher's pretty inexpensive it's only 500 bucks. And I bet you can talk that price down even further. It has a nice filter that takes care of chunky stuff, like spinach. It scraps hard to get off dirt off of the dishes. They come out looking clean. It's not a great dryer, but you can stand assure that any dirt you throw at it It's gonna take care of us. So for 500 bucks, that cleaning power is a pretty good deal. If you wanna spend a couple hundred more, the other Kenmore we reviewed recently has extra jets to help you clean casserole dishes. It also has a few more features and And perks. But if you're bargain hunting and cleaning power is the most important thing to you, I do recommend this highly competent Kenmore dishwasher.
