GE Cafe CDWT980VSS 24-in. Built-In Stainless Steel Dishwasher Review
If price isn't an issue you'll probably be happy with it.
Before you do any research on this machine, take a look at the price: you’d be lucky to find it for $1,400. This review will do its best to account for both people who can and cannot afford that, but it’s worth noting from the beginning that we found that the quality of the GE Cafe CDWT980VSS does not match its price. Yes, there's a sweet automatic detergent dispenser, but there's a reason similar devices don't pop up on other units: even slight misuse could lead to a costly, time-consuming repair.
Honestly, GE, you’re a legendary brand, but just because you can claim Thomas Edison as one of your own doesn’t mean you can charge this much for a run-of-the-mill dishwasher with one special feature of dubious awesomeness. You've made some great products, really. And we’ve given some solid grades to your other products, but this one doesn’t hit the mark—at least not for the asking price.
