This dishwasher is worth every cent, and even offers more design choices than the pricier 500 Series. Read full review.

KitchenAid KDTM354DSS

From design to performance, this all-new dishwasher is all about fluidity and grace. Perhaps most importantly, it's equipped with KitchenAid’s Clean Water Wash technology, which continually removes food particles from wash water. That means the KDTM354DSS doesn’t spray debris back onto clean dishes. Should you buy one of your own? We think so. This is one of the best-performing dishwashers in its price range.
