Samsung Waterwall Dishwasher 9550 review.
Full disclosure, I’m part of the Insiders community where I test and give my opinions/criticism’s and thoughts about products.
Let me start off by saying that this dish washer is gorgeous and that blue glow in the front, that’s not just for looks. It is so quiet, without that glowing blue light in the front, you would be hard pressed to tell if it was actually running or not. The first time I used this dish washer, I opened it maybe 3-4 during a wash cycle just to make sure that it was actually running, it’s just that quiet. Before I got this, I used to only run my old one in the mornings as I left for work so that I wouldn’t have to listen to it while I was home during the day or night and forget about even thinking about running it while I was trying to sleep, that just wasn’t going to happen. This one though, doesn’t matter when I run it because I can’t hear it. It’s amazing.
Unlike my old dish washer, this one is stainless steel, so yup, you guessed it, it’s a finger print magnet. Thanks to this I’ve had to learn new ways to clean in order to get the fingerprints off of it. I guess it’s just one of the joys of owning stainless steel appliances.
I simply love the way the silverware tray is designed. No more having to try to set my silverware in the tray while keeping them from sticking together (think spoon on spoon). With this tray setup, no silverware comes into contact with each other. There’s plenty of space so that each one will get fully cleaned.
The rinse only feature is nice. If I know I won’t be washing dishes that day and I don’t want food mess to get caked onto the dishes, I just run the rinse only feature to get the food stuff off the dishes so that I don’t have to worry about pre-rinsing every dish before it goes into the dish washer.
If I find that I am washing dishes with some food stuff already caked on, I then turn to the zone booster to add a little extra power to wash some of my dishes.
There is one feature I’m sure is split between those that like it and those that hate it. That’s would be the fact that this dish washer has no dry heating element. Yup, this dish washer only air dries. Although it does have an auto open door feature that helps with speeding up dry time. It also has a little fan that blows to help keep the steam from rising directly onto the counter-top above it. Personally I love this feature as I always air dried my dishes with my old dish washer anyways instead of using the heating element. By the way, there is a way to disable the auto door open feature in case it is not wanted.
Another feature I like is the timer countdown. No more guessing how long until the dishes are done.
All in all, so far I really like the looks and cleaning power of this dish washer and am glad I got a chance to try it out. I have a feeling the constant fingerprints would test my patience, and maybe, just maybe the melody at the end of the cycle. But I guess only time will tell.
