GE Profile PDWT480RSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher, 16 Place Settings, Energy Star, SmartDispense Technology

It is energy-efficient and equipped with some of the latest technologies that help meet that efficiency. It is also designed to keep some delicate objects safe. This should be a good buy for users with a lot of stemware.
