I spent a little more money than I intended on this machine, but I am proud that I did. The interior is stainless steel instead of plastic, and the color is a beautiful metallic taupe -- just a higher quality overall. The bottom has 4 blades instead of the usual 2, and the silverware basket is very long. The top even has options for drying those delicate wine-glasses. Best of all, the dishes actually get clean without that film on them that I had to scrub off; I no longer have to wipe lingering food off the silverware every time; and the tupperware comes out dry. The machine is ridiculously quiet. I used to have to leave the house to run my previous machine. Lastly, I like the option to buy white, because my kitchen is darker and needs to reflect all light.

I like the handle and the control buttons on the front, although sometimes I bump into it and turn it on accidentally. So,I need to remember to use the Control Lock button.
I prefer the older style with a disposal inside to this filter type because now there is often an odor even though I clean the filter weekly.
This is my first DW with a stainless steel interior. It is nice and quiet.
Most of the dishes come out clean, but we usually need to hand wash off some stubborn food after we empty it.
The bottom rack comes off the track frequently, so we have to pull it open very slowly.

Cleans Exceptionally Well and is Super Quiet

        Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

        I bought this dishwasher 4 months ago and it has exceeded my expectations. First, it cleans exceptionally well even when over packed. Second, it is super quiet. The adjustable top rack has enough vertical clearance that it can hold my large mixer bowl from my KitchenAid stand Mixer and still have room on the bottom rack for standard sized dinner plates. The filter is easy to get to and clean. The silverware basket is very large which allows each item to have enough space to be cleaned thoroughly. The controls are easy to operate and the surface shows minimal fingerprints. My only complaint is the long cycle time on the proScrub option. While normal, the long proScrub cycle time means I can do less loads after a party or event if I choose to use that option.

              Comments about KitchenAid 24" Black Built-In Dishwasher:

              We are remodeling our kitchen and got new dishwasher. Nothing was wrong with the old one just wanted stainless. First time I used it on normal wash I thought something was wrong because it took over 4 hours to do a load. This is a bit excessive. And the express took an hour and didn't do a great job. Wish I had investigated before buying this.

                          This dishwasher is the best!! It is so quiet and it does a fantastic job on washing the dishes. I love it. We had purchased a GE dishwasher about 2 years before we bought this one and it was horrible. So just after two years we replaced the GE with the Kitchen Aid and we love it.

                                I did the install myself and it took about 1/2 hour. putting it into the same spot as my old 15 year old Kitchen Aid. The unit does an excellent job of cleaning and it has to be the quietest dish washer there is. it does make a noise.

                                                  This machine is so quiet that you can't tell it's running! 5 STARS PLUS!! It does a great job on cleaning, too. Now a couple limiting factors enter into this review. The first and foremost is that the top shelve sides out when loading the bottom shelf. The machine has been releveled and over-compensating doesn't help. The other detail is that the machine doesn't hold as much as our previous dishwasher. Maybe this is our ignorance. But it is noticeable.

                                                              I purchased this about 5 weeks ago for my new home. I previously owned a KitchenAid dishwasher in my previous home, the same model a couple of years older.
