dishwashers without food grinders
Question first: Do quality dishwashers without food grinders even get the bits of broccoli or pasta or peas bits left on children's plates? We're building and I've specified the KUDE50 (I want the front display, not integrated) which has no food grinder.
I read so much about folks only cleaning their traps quarterly or monthly, I want to make sure I'm not in for a surprise having to clean it out daily.
Backstory: The house we're renting has a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (and a Viking range...go figure!) that has no food grinder. I understand that this is not a top of the line dishwasher. I use cascade or finish tabs. I have to clean out the food trap after every wash or two. It is gross. There is also gray green slime that is deposited along the bottom near the hinge, but that's another gross factor unrelated to the undissolved food chunks. At least the dishwasher is quiet.
