We recommend the SPT SD-9252SS due to the fact that it features 6 cycles that you can use to clean the dishes, and it is quiet when it operates. Also, it comes at a cheap price which makes it an affordable choice for anyone.
Time is of the essence, and any appliance or device that can help us gain more free time is a great purchase. This is the reason why dishwashers have stopped being seen as a luxury addition to the kitchen, now being a common necessity for people who don’t want to spend all their time cleaning dishes. A great dishwasher that has taken the world of household appliances by storm is the SPT SD-9252SS. This built-in dishwasher is extremely convenient to use, having a series of features that make it indispensable in the kitchen. The best part is that it has a starting price of only $450. But pay close attention to the sites that sell this model because some offer discounts as much as $120, which will make purchasing it even more of a bargain. To find out more about this affordable built-in dishwasher, continue to read our review.
The SPT SD-9252SS has a durable stainless steel exterior. Also, the interior tub is made from stainless steel, meaning that it will preserve a clean aspect after you use the dishwasher. It can accommodate up to 8 place settings at once, which makes it inferior to other models on the market. But keeping in mind how cheap it actually is and the fact that it’s a compact unit intended for use in small households, you can’t expect a bigger place setting capacity from it. The dishwasher features 2 pull-out racks which are made from vinyl. The fact that the racks can be pulled out when you load and unload the dishes makes it more convenient for you to use the dishwasher. To give you more flexibility when using the dishwasher, the upper rack is adjustable. Therefore, you can accommodate large plates and pots in it with ease. Also, it features a silverware basket in which you can place utensils and silverware for easy cleaning. It features a touch control digital panel that makes it easy for you to use the dishwasher and to choose the desired settings. Due to the fact that it produces only 55dBA, you won’t have to worry that the unit might bother you when you’re in the kitchen, or that you might hear it from another room. It’s Energy Star rated, which means that using it won’t cost you much when the bills come and that you won’t hurt the environment by using it either. The estimated yearly operating cost of this model is only $32, consuming around 265 kWh per year.
For complete cleaning coverage when it operates, it features two spray arms. For increased convenience in use, it features automatic dispensers for detergent and the rinse agent. It features hard food filtration, which means that food won’t remain on the dishes or in the tub when the cleaning program finishes. This dishwasher offers 6 cycles to choose from, which are Normal, Heavy, Light, Speed, Rinse, and All-in-1. The Speed cycle that it features comes in handy when you’re in a hurry and you need the dishes to be cleaned fast, taking only 90 minutes for it to complete. It features a heating element that dries the dishes. Also, it features a convenient 24-hour time delay feature. Therefore, you can set the unit to start cleaning the dishes when you’re at work or when you sleep to find them already clean when you arrive home or when you wake up. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feature an Eco-friendly cycle, which a lot of other models on the market have. Another important element that it lacks and that other high-end models feature is the smart soil sensor which automatically adjusts the time of the cycle and water usage to the level of soil that resides on the dishes.
The built-in dishwasher measures 32.2 inches in height, 17.5 inches in width, and 22.1 inches in depth, which makes it a compact unit ideal for small kitchens. With a net weight of only 54 pounds, it will be extremely easy to position this dishwasher in the desired location. When the unit’s door is opened at a 90-degree angle, it will measure 44.5 inches in depth. This makes it spacious enough to handle the dishes that you will place inside it.
Overall, the SPT SD-9252SS built-in dishwasher might not be the best model on the market, but the cheap price makes up for what it lacks. Some might find the lack of a smart soil sensor and the lack of an Eco-friendly cycle to be a problem, but the dishwasher compensates not only through its cheap price but with the low operational cost as well. Its design makes it a stylish addition to your kitchen, and the compact dimension makes it ideal for kitchens of all sizes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with an impressive warranty, this model being backed up by the warranty only for a year on parts and labor.
