Dishwasher comments from salesman - BS or fact?
At the appliance store the gregarious salesman said "I'm out to save countertops!" and proceeded to push the Bosch d/w over any other that lets steam escape from the top of the door. He said since d/w makers have moved the steam outlet from the door's front to its top, everyone loves the new clean look of the door, but recently he's been hearing about damage to countertops and cabinets due to swelling etc. of plywood exposed to the steam.
This struck me as a hard sell on Bosch - I've never heard or seen a complaint on this forum about steam from the d/w damaging cabinets, but I haven't been watching this site that carefully. Plus, if you have granite or quartz or laminate on your countertop, who cares about steam? And if the face of the cabinet swells behind the installation d/w, is it a problem?
