Dishwashers - top rack or no top rack
We've never had a d/w with one of those 3rd racks - the kind where you have to lay out each piece of silverware individually. We need a new dishwasher now -- are the 3rd racks a) better at cleaning silverware than a silverware basket, and/or b) so frustrating to use that you generally use the basket anyway?
Any other tips? We've looking at the Bosch 800 series and the Miele mid-range. We have a GE profile now (in a rental) that just doesn't do the job.
I care most about three things - cleaning ability, quietness (open kitchen), and good capacity.
