Bosch Benchmark Series SHE8PT55UC

The price may be intimidating, but our tests show the Benchmark Series is worth every cent. In addition to a surprisingly intuitive LCD control panel, illuminated interior, flexible racks, third rack, and flush fit, our lab tests showed near-perfect performance that got dishes clean and dry. We were also impressed by its quiet operation—rated at just 40 dBA. If you demand the best, you should demand a Bosch Benchmark.

GE Profile PDT855SMJES

If you hate sorting silverware, you'll love this GE dishwasher. Powerful water jets aimed at the cutlery basket blast off stains and keep spoons from sticking together. In addition to other features like Bottle Wash and 40 dBA sound rating, this GE always did a superb job getting dishes both clean and dry. Available in stainless, slate, and panel ready model, this GE does cost a lot—but its convenience is undeniable.

KitchenAid KDTM354DSS

From design to performance, this all-new dishwasher is all about fluidity and grace. Perhaps most importantly, it's equipped with KitchenAid’s Clean Water Wash technology, which continually removes food particles from wash water. That means the KDTM354DSS doesn’t spray debris back onto clean dishes. Should you buy one of your own? We think so. This is one of the best-performing dishwashers in its price range.

Kenmore Elite 14823

The Kenmore Elite 14823 is built and priced like other Elites. It's loaded with familiar high-end features, such as an advanced filtration system, a clever wash arm, and tons of water jets mounted all over the tub. But what truly makes this Elite stand out is a large window on the front, a feature we almost never see.
