I’m a fool for black stainless steel, the dark, elegant new finish that can dress up a light or dark kitchen. Whether it’s a trend or a fad, I’m still in. So, when I first laid eyes on the Whirlpool WDT970SAHV dishwasher in our labs, I knew I could love it.
After we spent a week testing it, I had to remind myself—looks aren’t everything. Clean dishes are more important. Luckily, we found that this dishwasher does an okay job cleaning most dishes, though there are a few caveats.
