      • Lots of space - miss older model "shelf basket" for small things
      • May 14, 2013
      • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

      See my photo - you'll see how I use the "new" basket - not for utensils! I kept my old basket for utensils! Using the eco wash setting, the cycle is not any longer than our old machine. But it is much quieter - not silent, which is fine; it's plenty quiet for our kitchen which is open to the dining room. I also like that they kept the fold-up shelves on the top rack - handy for doubling up and also to keep light items from flipping. I do still terribly miss the "shelf basket" that used to be in front of the top rack; you could put anything from utensils to 2 oz tupperware containers and small tops in there and not lose them.... Overall a versatile, reliable machine.

      Pros Easy to Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Durable, Easy to Clean, Lots of Features, High Quality, Nice Design Cons miss baskets of previous models!
