Melitta - I have to agree with you - it seems over the last 20 years or so, every time I buy an off-brand appliance it lasts forever and has no problems. And every time I decide to spend a little extra to get "the best" - I end up getting junk. What is up with that??Originally Posted by Melitta;2749697;
example - we purchased our newest home 3 1/2 years ago - hated the dishwasher it came with (don't even remember the brand) and replaced it with a brand name (forget, sorry) - but then it wasn't good enough either, and we went for broke and replaced it with a Bosch. I spent almost $1000 on the damn thing because it is supposed to be the best and practically silent - and the thing doesn't dry worth a damn and isn't nearly as quiet as advertised!!!
