    We purchased this dishwasher along with a few other appliances for a small kitchen remodel.

    My kitchen has some space limitations, so a regular sized dishwasher would not be able to fit. We decided to go with the GE Spacemaker, since it was smaller than a standard size, only 18 inches. This was we would only have to remove one cabinet to get the dishwasher in.

    We had to order it, and it came about a week later. We installed it without any huge issues. It fit perfectly in the space that we had allotted for it.

    My biggest concern with this model was how many dishes it would really be able to hold. Since it was not a standard size, I thought that I would have a huge problem doing loads, and have to do twice as many to compensate for the size.

    Luckily, my fears were proved false. I easily fit a full load into the washer, and do not seem to have too many issues.

    One small problem that I have encounted is washing pots and pans. Although everything that I put in the dishwasher gets very clean, the size does make putting a full load of pots and pans in, a bit of a problem. Depending on the size, there may be a few left over that either have to wait for the next load, or have to be washed by hand.

    I have no problem with this, but I know that others might.

    All in all, for my family, and my home, this dishwasher was perfect!

    Compact and resiliant

    My old dishwasher was giving me a lot of trouble. It consumed more electrical power than I could handle and I was desperate for a new dishwasher. I calculated my savings and barely had six hundred dollars. I checked up online reviews and located the US Appliances web store where they favored the General Electric Company’s GE Spacemaker Built-in 18” Dishwasher Model GSM1800NWW for 569 dollars.

    GE Spacemaker dishwasher is a compact model, which occupies very little space (dimensions - 32.5in height x 22.5in depth x 18in width). The dishwasher complies with ADA standards regarding height that facilitates trouble-free operation. It is also meets Energy Star norms leading to reduction in power consumption and water usage.

    The hardy, resilient stainless steel internal parts, glossy exterior, stain resistant and anti-rust nature are plus-points of the GE dishwasher. Heavy-duty nylon is the raw material for manufacturing washing racks that safeguard the dishes during cleaning. It is possible to remove the upper utensil holder rack, whenever requirement arises, to wash large-sized vessels. The delicate crystal glass option guards breakable glassware by reducing the washing temperature.

    The salient features of the GE Spacemaker dishwasher are seven modes of wash cycles, silent operation and dialing type of controls. The three colors available in the store were pure black, complete white and stainless steel. I chose the stainless steel colored model because it complements any color shade.

    The loading capacity is very high when compared to the overall miniscule size of the dishwasher that is suitable for an eighteen-inch cabinet. It also washes huge utensils spotlessly clean without making any peculiar sounds.

    Mild rinsing to remove small food particles in the vessels is necessary prior to adding dishes in the washer. The output is bright, dazzling and immaculate dishes. The best point about the GE Spacemaker dishwasher is the complete cleaning of burnt vessels with pressurized hot water. I would like to recommend this model as a versatile dishwasher.
