KitchenAid Architect II KUDS30FXSS Dishwasher is one of the most efficient dishwashers in its class. It is a 4-Inch 4-Cycle/6-Option Dishwasher, which can be purchased for $900. Generally, 1000$ is considered to be a decent budget for a dishwasher and you can find a lot of quality products within this price range. This dishwasher is best suited for people who cook on a regular basis and who often struggle with heavily caked dishes that require a thorough washing performance which can hardly be achieved by common dishwashers. It is also very easy to use and very quiet as it only emits 49 dB.
As far as the washing performance goes, this dishwasher has numerous features which aim to deliver squeaky clean dishes, regardless of their level of dirtiness. The most interesting feature is the ProScrub® Option which can handle even caramelized or burnt food stains. The 4 stainless steel wash arms are very durable but also very efficient as they have a precise water distribution that can reach every corner of the dishwasher. The stainless steel tub is designed to resist stains and odors while also ensuring an optimum heat transfer during the drying process. The Heat Dry Option is considered to be one of the best such options on the market. The hard food dispenser removes food particles, thus eliminating the need to pre-rinsing the dishes before loading them. The dishwasher has 4 washing cycles and several additional options which include a control lock, a 4-hour delay, a high-temperature scrub option, sanitary rinsing, and zonal wash. It also features a water filtration system.
KitchenAid Architect II KUDS30FXSS Dishwasher can fit as much as 15 place settings so this appliance is ideal for all types of households. The loading space is very versatile and it is designed in order to improve the washing performance with the help of smart racks and tines which don’t crowd the dishes. It has two racks and a non splittable full length silverware basket. The upper rack features Premium Adjusters and a SatinGlide® System. The adjusters allow you to modify the height of the upper rack and the glide system is used to smoothly move the racks. This model also has 2 fold down cup shelves which feature integrated stemware holders. Thus, the dishwasher can have additional room in the upper rack in order to fit more cups, glasses or long utensils.
The KUDS30FXSS Dishwasher has a modern panel-ready design which helps it integrate closely to kitchen cabinets. This design allows the dishwasher to fit effortlessly into existing cabinetry. The stainless steel design is not only very easy to maintain but it has a modern look which fits most kitchen styles.
