16 Place Settings Energy Star SmartDispense Technology

The PDWF880RSS is another model in the Profile line of dishwashers manufactured by GE. The features and mechanisms included in the dishwasher do make it worth every penny of what some users may consider to be quite a steep price. The good thing about this model is that even the small details and features make a lot of difference.

All these and more efficient features are found in the PDWF880RSS.
