KitchenAid dishwashers compare favorably to competitors, taking home top honors among 2015 dishwashers on Top Ten Reviews. The site gives extremely favorable reviews to the company’s Architect II Series and its Pro Line Series.
KitchenAid’s Architect II receives strong reviews for its high functionality, attractive appearance, range of wash modes and useful energy-saving features. The dishwasher’s three racks make for ample dish space, saving both time and energy consumption. The Architect II also ranks as one of the quietest dishwashers available, with a sound rating of just 40 decibels. With six wash cycles and seven wash options, the device offers a range of versatile cleaning modes for any level of soil. The Architect II also features a number of eco-friendly cleaning options that save both electricity and water.
The company’s Pro Line model also receives favorable reviews for its range of features and energy-saving wash cycles. While slightly louder than the Architect II, the dishwasher still operates at a quiet 46 decibels. Especially notable is the unit’s ProWash cycle, which automatically determines settings based on the load being washed. This useful feature can help save unnecessary water and energy expended by higher settings. Reviewers do note the machine’s lack of rise-only or small load cycles, but the Pro Line still receives glowing reviews overall.
