Whirlpool - DU1100XTPS
I have always found it somewhat pointless to have to thoroughly pre wash your dishes before being able to run a dishwashing cycle. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a dishwasher at all. Soaking the dirty pans for what seems like forever. Why not just spend the extra 5 minutes hand cleaning them yourself?
For my birthday this year, my husband committed a "marriage no-no" and bought me an appliance. Lucky for him, I really needed it, and love it! It has changed the way we do dishes at our house completely.
The Whirlpool - DU1100XTPS has an amazing automatic purge filtration system, which soaks the pots and pans in the dishwasher itself instead of the sink! It eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes completely allowing my family to cook, eat and wash immediately, instead of having to wait to re-use the dish or pot.
On top of this amazing feature, this dishwasher is equipped with a quiet package, that allows us to run it even if we're watching TV in the family room without being disturbed. As well as 4 dish washing cycles, including this great high temperature wash which I have found to be absolutely perfect for melting the grease and grime off of casserole dishes. This wash cycle, accompanied by the automatic purge filtration is an absolute match made in heaven and cleans the stains that used to be set in for life. Not to mention it does so with the ease of not needing a pre soak or extra hard pre scrub wasting water before being put into the washer for a cycle through.
All in all, It's a great addition to my collection of ever so helpful appliances, and one of the best birthday gifts my husband has quite possibly ever given me.
