Well, I guess it had to happen eventually. All good things come to an end. Sadly, our dishwasher is done. It’s over. It’s 8 years old and had a great run, but it’s time. I mean, just to get it looked at to see what’s wrong would cost about $200. Then to fix it…who knows??? I can’t, so it’s time to go shopping!
There are tons of options with so many different features in so many different price ranges. It really can make your head spin. We know we want a few things…it has to look good, stainless steel, be energy and water efficient, and be QUIET!
We went through it all…and came to the conclusion that we loved our LG refrigerator so much that we should just get an LG dishwasher. On top of everything else…the handles will match. How can you beat that??
Once we looked around, we quickly determined that we wanted to go all out and get all the bells and whistles. Bill does most of the dishes because he is psychotic about it, so he really pushed to get a really nice one. We decided on this beautiful machine: the LDF8874, LG’s flagship dishwasher.
Here’s a link to its product page: LG.com/us/
- No need to pre-wash!! Pre-washing your dishes is now a thing of the past. LG’s dishwashers offer innovative features that will make cleaning your dishes easy and convenient.
- There’s a third rack to put lids!! The height adjustable 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to small espresso cups.
- It’s super quiet!! LG’s technological advances, like the Inverter DirectDrive motor and the advanced self-cleaning filtration system, were designed with quiet in mind. At 42dB, this dishwasher is among the quietest dishwashers in its class.
- The top and bottom racks can have different settings!! Enables users to vary the intensity in the upper and lower racks (e.g. delicates in the upper rack, and pots & pans in the lower rack with strong setting), accommodating different items in the same load.
- The motor is covered!! When you buy a dishwasher, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.
I mean, this is pretty much a lock. It looks great, too! I’ll include a pic from the LG website for now, but when I get this going and we start using it, there will be many more pics to come! Time to put in that order I think! I can’t wait. Bill is sick of washing dishes (so spoiled)…LOL!!!
While I’m all into kitchen appliances, I came across this and wanted to share some great news about LG’s new ProBake range!!
Celebrity restaurateur, cookbook author and award-winning actress Eva Longoriajoined LG Electronics USA over the weekend to celebrate the launch of LG’s new ranges with ProBake Convection™ technology, a groundbreaking innovation that helps consumers bake like professionals in their own kitchens. It was a great event in LA to introduce LG’s latest cooking innovation that helps consumers bake like professionals in their own kitchens.
Incorporated across LG’s new series of six electric and gas ranges, the innovative ProBake Convection technology means today’s home chefs never have to worry about uneven cooking results again. Inspired by pro-style ranges, LG moved the heating element from the bottom of the oven to the back wall to achieve optimal heating distribution and consistent browning on the top and bottom of every dish, from savory dinners to delectable desserts.
LG’s ProBake Convection-equipped ranges also feature LG’s proprietary EasyClean® technology, which is the fastest oven cleaning feature in the market that provides a quick and convenient way to clean the oven in three simple steps. Users simply spray water to the interior walls of the oven, start the EasyClean function to allow the oven to heat up, then after 10 minutes, gently wipe away any mess. As a result of LG’s trademark oven enamel technology, the need for chemicals or high heat is eliminated.**

*AFTER deciding we wanted the LG dishwasher, we reached out and was lucky enough to team up with them to tell the story. All opinions and experiences are 100% my own.
**Fastest oven cleaning feature as of June 2015; heavy build-up may require additional manual effort or use of the full self-clean feature.
