Consumer Reports just listed recommended.
Number 1 is a Kenmore for $1200
Next is a Bosch.
Of the top 15 six are Bosch, several Kenmores, and several KitchenAids.
GE was listed well toward the bottom.

Energy savings, noise level, efficiency, interior, etc. were the comparison standards.

For those of you who ask.

In my personal experience (vast) KitchenAid, once the industry standard, should be right above GE, on the bottom. Currently, I have a Bosch that is so quiet you cannot hear it even if you're standing in front of it. So many of the U.S. brands are now manufactured by just a couple of companies and quality has suffered in the process of merging...sadly.

I bought a new Bosch a few months ago. It is amazingly quiet and EVERYTHING comes out clean. I do find that the tines are a bit too close on the bottom rack. Sometimes I have to use every other one for plates.

I concur...it's the only thing I don't like about mine, too!

current issue.

So many ask, so I just thought I'd mention this.

We do like our Bosch.

I got a Bosch last year, and am pleased with it. I do agree about the tines. I also don't like the layout of them, but it works I guess.

I've had a GE for 15 years - no problems. I guess they don't make them like they use to - no surprise there.

Got an Asko 2 years ago and I am very pleased with the performance. It's a bit larger than most--you should know that all dishwashers do not have the same dimensions. Mine is taller and we had to have the adjustable legs removed when we had tile installed so that it would fit under the countertops.

I have a high end Kenmore,it's fine, it does a good job, it dries the dishes which is something I wanted in a dishwasher and it's quiet, under 40 dbs., I think. There is something I don't care for, the tines... I would have liked some of the tines on the bottom angled to accommodate bowls rather than just plates. I searched far and wide before I made this purchase but it seems the guts of the new dishwashers are basically the same. It cleans very well, you can put a dish of dried up whatever (lasagna, baked mac and cheese) and it does come out sparkly clean, that's a thumbs up for me!

My girlfriend has a Bosch and she says it is so quiet, too. I have never had a quiet dishwasher so I may save up my pennies and buy one in the future.

I have a Bosch and love the quietness of it but have found that my old Kenmore actually cleaned better.

I have a 7 or 8 year old Kenmore Elite that runs so quietly you don't know it's on. Never had a repair in all those years and I'd buy another Kenmore in a heartbeat when this one dies. This one replaced a GE that was only 2 years old, (came with the house) and it was so noisy, it was unbelievable. In an open floor plan, one thing you really need is a quiet dishwasher.

Do they skirt the issue of whether or not Sears/Kenmore will be around very much longer? Many financial columnists seem to have them being out of business by 2014.
