The Ins and Outs of My GE® Dishwasher #Spon

As I said last week, I had the privilege of speaking with Dan Goldstein, the marketing director for my new GE® Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher.  It was a fun and informative conversation in which I learned, among other things, that GE® dishwashers and Cascade detergent are made for each other, and that I do not need to rinse my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.  I also learned that it helps to read the manual that comes with your new appliance so that you can learn all the tips and tricks for it!

I asked Dan how GE® came up with the design for the Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher.  He said that they actually went into people’s homes and watched how they interacted with their dishwashers.  GE® asked the people what they liked and didn’t like about their current dishwasher and what they would like most in a new washer.  I thought that was pretty cool.

Dan’s favorite feature of the dishwasher?  The true wash zones.  There are two “wash zones” in the GE® Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher (the top and the bottom).  Both are true 1/2 load wash zones.  The top rack has all the same cycles as the bottom rack.  Most dual wash zone dishwashers do not have the same cycles on top as on the bottom.  I also love this feature as the top rack of my dishwasher always fills up with the girls cups and bowls before the bottom rack does.

Another awesome feature of my dishwasher is that the tines are reversible on the bottom.  This is something I would have figured out if I had read the manual but that’s ok, Dan pointed it out to me!  I was struggling to put my dishes in the washer because my sink is on the left and I had to turn the dishes backward to fit into the washer.  Once I reversed the tines, it made loading much easier!!

I asked Dan based on the feedback from consumers about the GE® Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher, what would they change for the next dishwasher.  He said it’s not a matter of what they would change for next time, but what they’ve already changed.  GE® learns as they go and responds to ratings and reviews as soon as they find things wrong.  They already put a factory fix and a field fix on the fact that they dishwasher wasn’t drying well at first.  Because of that, the dishwasher I received has no issues with drying dishes.

One thing tip/trick I’ve learned from using my dishwasher over the past few months is that, despite what the photos show, you need to put the taller silverware (such as knives) on the edges of the silverware racks.  If you put them in the middle, they will block the opening of the detergent container.  Dan said they would take that feedback into consideration in a design change.

I could go on and on about all the cool features of my GE® Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher but this post could get awfully long.  You’ll just have to check out the specs on the GE® website to see for yourself.  I will, however end with the absolute BEST part of my dishwasher…


85% of its parts are manufactured in the USA (most of it in Kentucky). I love that GE® keeps their appliances as local as possible!

GE® provided me with this dishwasher for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
