Got rack
by: Anonymous

This unit has 3 racks.. top tray is for silverware. There is also a basket come with it. It is a joy to pickup the forks and knives. clean and easy access compare to basket. we never use the basket.

middle rack has 3 height level. Got a salt dispenser for hard water. got a in-line water heater.

I only need to use half of a tablet for each wash.

The stainless steel tub is twice as thick as the Korean's.
Very quiet that got a led indicating light shining on floor to tell you it is running.

We have a Thermador stainless panel with master handle on it. We got the unit on sale. better price than any other brands.
