GE Appliances 18 in. Built-In Dishwasher

by Christy Burke

I was really in need of a new dishwasher, because our old hand-me-down was just not doing that great of a job. Well my husband bought me the GE Appliances 18 in. Built-In Dishwasher for Christmas, and I couldn't be happier.

I absolutely love it! It has a bright stainless steel interior that resists stains and corrosion. The heavy-duty nylon racks are designed to protect your dishes and keep them securely in place. There is a removable upper rack. This pulls out completely.

It is really simple to do and is great for when you have large items, such as pots and pans, to wash. There is a wash cycle for crystal and china. This is nice because it is a delicate wash for your expensive dishes and glassware. There is even a pots and pans cycle. This wash cycle scours off burned-on food, using hot water and pressure.

At around $500, this is a really great dishwasher for the modern family. It comes in stainless steel, black, and white. This is great, because you can easily match all of your existing appliances. If you are looking for a new dishwasher, I would definitely recommend this one from GE Appliances. It is very reliable. It is also whisper-quiet.

You won't hear a thing when you run it. It will clean all of your dishes spotless the first time through. It is truly a wonderful appliance. I am so happy with this dishwasher. It is really a great model and really reasonably priced.

Extremely loud
by: Kirsten

The GE Nautilus dishwasher was built into my apartment when we moved in two years ago. The apartment has been around for three years, therefore this dishwasher is relatively new. It is a white standard GE Nautilus.

Overall, it works pretty well. It has enough space for a week’s worth of dishes and there are multiple cycles that you can put it on, however I mainly put it on the full cycle and occasionally the quick cycle if I need my dishes washed in under an hour. There are the traditional holes in the dishwasher for putting in the soap and all that. Sometimes the soap container will not close correctly, but after a little jiggling of the latch it starts to work well for a while.

The one downside that I have noticed lately is that it is not doing a good job cleaning some of the dishes. Although we frequently wash everything off plates and bowls, any sort of sticky substance like oatmeal has trouble coming off in the GE Nautilus. Other dishwashers I have had in the past have not had this problem, so that was a little disappointing.

Another downside is that this dishwasher is extremely loud when it goes through its cycles. It makes a really loud buzzing noise and you can definitely hear the water swishing around in there. Usually I have to close the door in the kitchen area to keep the sound from traveling around the rest of the apartment.

Overall, I probably would not ever choose to buy this dishwasher. However, since I live in an apartment I do not really get a choice of what kind of dishwasher I have. Therefore, this one will be with me until the end of this year and hopefully it will start cleaning my dishes a little bit better.
