Maytag Dishwashers - Third rack option for more space!
In a 2006 Consumer Reports Magazine rating of more than 15 dishwasher brands and models, Maytag MDB4651 received a very good overall score. For approximately $340, this model features: electronic controls, 4 wash cycles, 2 to 6 hour delay wash option, and stainless steel upper rack. (Not tub)
However, what this machine won't give you is, Maytag's best in: quiet and loading flexibility. For this you have to go up market some, to the 9000 series. These are Maytag's higher end dishwashers, selling between $800 and $1000.
Third rack dishwashers:
For something different take a look at the Jetclean II MDB9750 and MDB9600. These models certainly offer something different: a third rack! Consider this machine when you're trying to squeeze more dishes into your dishwasher. The third rack basically opens up a new space in the bottom of the dishwasher. It's great for odd-shaped items like casserole dishes, baking pans, bowls and more.
Additional features include: stainless steel interior, 4 wash arms, 6 wash cycles, partially hidden control panels, adjustable and removable racks, Tough Scrub Plus Option and Quick Wash.
If you like Maytag appliances, and you're shopping for a dishwasher, you may also want to also consider higher-end Jenn-Air, mid-priced Amana or low-priced Admiral: Maytag manufactures these three brands.
