Okay which dishwasher does appropriate clean I’m definitely in the market

So which is the best? Current machines have cycles that are much too long. My Magic Chef is about 20 years old. I bought it at a garage sale for about $20. Works very well and I can run just half cycles and still get good results with Up and Up detergent. Considering how little there is to a dishwasher, I’m surprised at the prices they get away with charging for the things.

What the heck?
This is bullshit. You did every test without saying which one performed well. Just wasted my time.

Modern dishwashers suck. Plain and simple. They do nothing more than sterilization of already clean dishes. I could load a 1980 Kenmore with just about anything you can imagine and the dishes would come out spotless. Today, I have to scrub them clean before I put them in. It’s just not worth it.

Where did you find this buffoon at?

Click says:

Aside from cleaning I would like to know how other factors play into dishwasher ratings. I have a Bosch dishwasher that does a great job washing dishes (by my standards) but the door doesn’t stay open during the cycle. It has been perfectly leveled but I still need to prop it shut. I would rate it 3/5 because of the annoyance factor because I wish it had a latching mechanism like the ones I grew up with.

Put dishes in then take them out. May as well just wash them.
