KitchenAid Pro Line Series KDTE404DSP
With an overall scoring of 8.82 the KitchenAid Pro Line Series model KDTE404DSP made it to the ninth spot in the appliance rankings for the dishwashers. Though this model has given a clear miss to some prominent attributes in addition to no certification from the National Sanitation Foundation, it does manage to garner a decent 90 percent score for its ease of use.
When it comes to approximate operating costs and entire running cycle times, the KitchenAid Pro Line Series easily acquires the top slots in the dishwasher reviews. With operating costs around $32 and a running time of nearly 150 minutes for a normal does makes it energy efficient but a little far cry from being economical. Making use of the ProWash cycle which, makes it way in place of the eco-wash mode, it actively uses a soil sensor to determine the cleanliness of dishes to preserve water and power.
As many as 5 washing options accompanied with 6 wash cycles, it is pretty much adaptable. Of the many options it includes rinse only, express, light and tough cycles. In addition to it there is also a high temperature wash with delayed start, ProScrub, ProDry and other sanitary options as well. To clean out any tough or hardened food particles, the KitchenAid KDTE404DSP dishwasher is equipped with 40 targeted jets in the wash zone. With a pronounced absence of hard food disposer, the wash zone is strained with functional limits. As the dishwasher fails to crush the large hard food stuff, it would surely cause drainage blockages unless all the hard food stuff is pre-cleaned manually from the dishes before setting them in the dishwasher.
The model in consideration for review here is a large capacity model equipped with 14 place settings which, can be further optimized via the adjustable racks and folding the tines to accommodate larger items. At 42dB it functions quietly but has a downside of having a delayed start programmed to 4 hours in advance limiting the feature to function in off peak hours to conserve power.
Clever use of soil sensor to preserve a precious resource like water, the KitchenAid Pro Line KDTE404DSP series is quite an efficient equipment. With some important options absent, it still delivers multiple wash options, adjustable space and better user control.
