Plastic or SS? We had a top of line Kenmore (don't know by whom made, was almost 20 years ago) with plastic tub--best cleaning one ever. I've also bought a mid-range Ka perhaps 15 years ago with ss tub. I have an idea the ss is better, but why? Our current dw (a Monogram, didn't clean well anyway, ;plus collects "slime" around door opening) was fried by lightning last weekend and am hurrying to replace.
Suggestions? I don't want to spend more than $600 and definitely won't buy another Monogram. And Consumer Reports blithely states that any dishwasher will clean the dishes--ha!
