For me a dishwasher is a nice to have but I don't need all the bells and whistles and ultra quiet models.

I do look for energy efficient because it saves on water and gas bills.

I think in the pricey range the two popular ones are Fisher & Paykel and Bosche. They are sleek, come with hidden controls, you can get them as drawers (less water consumption and a bit more practical for a smaller family) and they can be overlayed with wood so it blends in with your cabinets.

In the mid price range the possibilities are too many to list. I think a stainless clad with a food grinder (so you don't have to do double work) and energy efficiency with a little bit of quietness and ofcourse consumer reports on reliability is what you should go by.

I have a Kenmore all stainless inside and out and I am very happy with it. It's quiet, energy efficient and does the job.

I just pick up a Bosch SHX33A05UC two weeks ago. I like it because it doesn't have 50 different wash cycles to choose from. It has 3 cycles: Pots/Pans; Regular; Rinse/Hold. It's quiet and the dishes come out clean. I think on the regular cycle it uses between 2 and 4 gallons of water. The interior is a tad smaller than our old Kenmore (piece of **** !!!!) but knowing the dishes will be clean is fine enough.

It costs $800 for all stainless steel. Lowe's carries them (I had to get mine from another company because Lowe's was out of stock)

I have had a Miele for about 4-5 yrs. now. I love it! Never a problem, washes great, is energy efficient, quiet, and has a SS interior. It also will shut down automatically if ever it were to overflow, plus there is a pan built-in that would catch any overflow, or so the salesman told me! I think the Miele is very similar to Bosch.

Friends have a GEProfile and it is a terrific machine--SS interior, BIG, racks are "adaptable"--the dish racks can be folded down to accomodate a different size dish, etc. If I ever replace, that is what I will get. I have a KA and have had KAs forever. Very serviceable.

We had a super high end Kitchenaid that lasted almost 25 years. In the end the racks rusted out and replacement was rediculously expensive. We replaced it with a mid line Bosch a couple of years ago. All stainless interior. No steel in the racks to rust- I think they are nylon. Extremely quiet, lots of capacity, and gets the dishes clean every time. I recommend it.
