Kitchenaid kude70cvss or kude60hxss
I have been round and round trying to figure out which dishwasher brand to purchase. My Crate & Barrel dishes (I have 30 place settings so it is a big deal) fit best in the KitchenAid (compared to Asko, Miele, Bosch). I had my mind set on the kude60hxss. Best Price I can find $1,275.
Then I noticed that the older model kude70cvss is available at a couple places online, new for $650-$725.
The main differences I can tell are no ProWash program, 2 less place setting in the kude70 (14 vs. 16) and I believe that the depth dimension on the kude70 is 3-inches shorter. Other than that, they seem pretty similar. Both have the 3rd culinary tool rack that I wanted to give a try.
Although I like the ultra handle on the kude60, I prefer having the control on the front, The handle on the kude70 isn't a deal breaker.
So is the latest generation kude60 $600 better or will I get a similar cleaning experience by going with last year's model?
