I Need To Pick A Dishwasher - Yesterday
After a few weeks of trying to trouble shoot why are DW wasn't cleaning the dishes, the pump started leaking and our question was answered.
I thought I knew exactly what I wanted until I went to purchase it. Now I'm torn.
We know we want Bosch - that helps.
My DH is fine with either purchase but I'm debating between mostly about an aesthetic issue.
We are most likely going with IKEA's gnosjo black/brown cabinet doors. I was originally going to purchase the dull black fronts that Bosch has but when I put the cabinet door up to it, IMO it clashed with the cabinet. Others mentioned this might happen. I'm not sure if it's because I'm not seeing it in it's true ultimate setting but comparing two unmatched items. I originally thought once everything was in the kitchen (cabinets, windows, handles etc.) a black DW would just fade into the cabinets and perhaps it would. This DW would be about $460
That said, I started thinking more about getting the bosch integrated one. Part of me is reluctant though knowing how much abuse a dishwasher front often takes and the cabinet door being able to handle it. I've considered purchasing an extra cabinet door ($27) as an "insurance" policy. The bosch we are looking at is $715. It has some extra features and some that are missing from the lower priced model.
I REALLY don't like SS but I think it could look nice.
I'm a value girl, but not everything is equal enough to compare. Everyday we don't decide is another day we do dishes by hand.
