Try as it might, this Frigidaire dishwasher can't keep food down

Dishwashers
[MUSIC] Get ready to rinse your dishes. This $11,000 Frigidaire Professional dishwasher looks great, and it's actually really good at scraping away tough soils in all corners of the machine, but it has a tendency to put loose foods right onto your plates and spoons. With a squared handle and smudge proof stainless steel this $1100 machine looks the part of that professional moniker. It also has tines and racks that are easy to use. You can raise and lower the upper rack just by lifting it into place. I particularly like the stem holders for wine glasses, and these fold-out jets that spray directly into tall items like water bottles are pretty cool. It's also pretty quiet at 47 decibels. But at this price, I wish it had a countdown timer, I wish it had a third rack for silverware and small items, and I wish it had a few more cycle options. The jets that spray water in here are pretty well-designed. This blue circle thingy at the bottom is called the Orbit power wash tech, and that, combined with the spray arms under the top rack and one at the top of the dishwasher Do a good job of spreading water over every inch. But we found little pieces of spinach, chili, and mac and cheese all over the plates and bowls. So this dishwasher's filter couldn't keep up with the bulky stuff we threw in there. And again, this thing cost $1,100. For the same price, we've tested a GE model with a lot more features. Features that performs better and an LG model that aced our performance tests. So this Fridgidair professional dishwasher isn't a bad machine. Rinse your dishes and it'll do a good job for you and it looks nice. But I wouldn't recommend it at its lofty price. [MUSIC]
