Maytag MDC4650AWW Dishwasher
Maytag is one of the most reliable brands for home appliances. With its lines of refrigerators, dishwashers, and an array of kitchen appliances and accessories, it has built a good name as a home appliance manufacturer.
The MDC4650AWW is a 24” portable dishwasher in black or white units that comes from Maytag, a known brand of home appliances. With it's super-sized capacity, the MDC4650AWB is the perfect dishwasher for mid-sized to large families. This is also a good option for a family that is just starting out.
The MDC4650AWB is also unique in that consumers can switch from a portable to a built-in with the same unit whenever they feel like it. The unit works as well as a built-in dishwasher with the flexibility of a portable. With its convertible design, it can be easily installed as a built-in unit in a matter of minutes.
Microprocessor Controls with 6 Touchpads -- Touchpads allow for easy navigation of settings and easy manipulation of controls. Touchpads are also easier to clean compared to rotating knobs.
QuietSeries 100 Sound Package -- What makes the MDC4650AWB stand out from the rest is the lack of noise. The MDC4650AWB is extremely quiet for a portable, which is a useful advantage for those who want to save on money by doing the dishes overnight.
3 Wash Arms and 4 Wash cycles (heavy, normal, light, rinse only) -- This feature allows users to save on electricity by choosing the right setting for each type of dishwashing job. Generally, light and rinse only features do not eat up as much power as the other two settings.
Stainless Steel Hard Food Dispenser -- Consumers can rely on the stainless steel hard food dispenser, which dices food particles for easier disposal.
2-4-6 Hour Delay Wash -- Consumers can also save more on energy bills with the 2-4-6 hour delay feature, especially if they live in areas where there are cheaper electric rates during the night. In cases like these, it is better to set the delay for past 9 p.m.
One of the main advantages of using Maytag's MDC4650AWB is that it has a large capacity for a portable. It is also capable of washing
dishes for 14 table settings at a time, compared to the usual 12 settings of other units from other brands.
The MDC4650AW comes from a known brand of dishwashing units. As such, it is no surprise that it comes with one of the most powerful of all dishwashing systems, a powerful 1/3-HP motor that can clean out even the toughest stains from plates and pans.
Three (3) wash arms and four (4) wash cycles also ensure that dishes come out sparkling clean, even if they are loaded without rinsing. Unlike other dishwashers, users can load unrinsed plates into the dishwasher, and they will come out clean, almost the same as those that were given a little rinse before loading.
The bulk is perhaps the worst feature of the MDC4650AWB. However, consumers who live in apartments may find that the MDC4650AWB can also provide extra countertop space and can easily be moved around. Another disadvantage is that some may find it difficult to hook the unit to the sink without any help.
A $10 adaptor is a requirement for hooking the unit to the kitchen sink. While the units are described as white or black, it must be clarified that black units come with white side panels.
The MDC4650AWB is perhaps another good dishwasher for its price. Aside from the guarantee in quality that consumers get, the MDC4650AWB is a domestic jewel in itself because it is capable of doing basic to complex tasks, at a larger capacity than other dishwashers. Even hard-to-remove stains such as dried food leftovers are no match for the unit's 1/3-HP motor. These and other more useful features make the MDC4650AWB worth every cent. Consumer likes:
