This machine is quite possibly the best basic machine you'll get your hands on. The White Ice finish isn't for everyone (meaning those with darker Italian finishes), but this machine can do a lot for the price. It does the job, and does it remarkably well for the price. Pretty much every extra wash option is a customization feature and there are 6 different wash options. Of course, this machine is all about simplicity and ease of use so, for the most part, that's what you can expect. It does have a plastic tub, but fits up to 15 place settings. And has an annual operating cost of about $27 with an electric water heater or $20 with a natural gas water heater. Plus, it's ENERGY STAR certified which is a nice bonus at this price. Unfortunately it's a little louder than other machines, but that's what you'll get for this price.
