After operating a cycle with the warmth dry possibility turned on, I opened the $850 Frigidaire FGID2476SF and was stunned to seek out the dishes cool to the contact. I examined the plates and bowls that comprise our set of testing dishes and located only a few water spots and solely the occasional missed droplet. Frigidaire’s new EvenDry characteristic did its job effectively. However whenever you evaluate it to different dishwashers we have examined, it isn’t the very best. The truth is, this $700 LG and this $400 GE each did higher on their respective energy dry checks.

The Frigidaire FGID2476SF’s energy dry scores epitomize the remainder of the dishwasher’s points. It is competent at cleansing, has a tremendous mixture of cycles and a few good extras like a smudge-proof stainless end and nice wine stem holders. However it’s not the very best at something it does. It isn’t the very best worth, greatest cleaner or most characteristic wealthy. Head right here for our present listing of favorites. If these aren’t out there at your native retailer and the FGID2476SF is on sale, it is competent and value your consideration.

Trendy design

The FGID2476SF has a whole lot of niceties I’ve come to anticipate from dishwashers within the Frigidaire Gallery sequence. The smudgeproof stainless end appears to be like nice and does effectively to withstand fingerprints. The stem holders securely stored our wine glasses in place. The higher rack raises and lowers a few inches with a easy raise. Plus, the blue wheel of jets on the backside — known as OrbitClean — will get water into the nooks of your dishes and avoids missed spots.

In any other case, this $850 mannequin rounds out its options with six totally different cycles — Heavy, Regular, 30 Minute Wash, China Crystal, Power Saver and Rinse Solely. It runs at a fairly quiet 51 dB and holds as many as 14 place settings. I will attest that we had been comfortably capable of load our check set of 10 place settings.

The FGID2476SF has a pleasant stainless end and a hidden management panel.

A few different extras additionally stand out. The EvenDry characteristic is a brand new addition to Frigidaire fashions this yr. EvenDry makes use of a fan to flow into warmth that is just like a convection fan in an oven. The FGID2476SF additionally has a “Keep-in-Place” door. As you’d anticipate, you may open the door of the FGID2476SF and set it to no matter angle you need, and it will keep put. I preferred this little further, and it is a good contact if you wish to open your door a sure method on the finish of a cycle to set free the steam.

You should purchase the $850 Frigidaire FGID2476SF now from Dwelling Depot, Greatest Purchase, Sears and different massive equipment retailers. I am a giant fan of the smudge-proof stainless end, however you too can discover it in black or white for $20 much less. Head to Frigidaire’s web site to seek out retailers in your space. As traditional with massive home equipment, search for a reduction off of the listing worth. Dwelling Depot has it proper now for $640.

Comparatively sparse

A number of of the specs of the FGID2476SF fall wanting the comparable $700 LG LDF5545ST, which has room for 15 place settings, affords 9 cycles, and runs even quieter at 48 dB. The LG LDF5545ST additionally has just a few artistic choices you may add onto your cycle, similar to washing solely half of the dishwasher at a time or turning the water stress up on your dishes on the decrease rack whereas gently spraying the higher rack.

The FGID2476SF has a number of choices, however nothing thrilling.

The FGID2476SF has just a few choices itself, however they’re all fairly primary. The water stress choices are confusingly worded — you decide between scour, surge and spray, that are primarily excessive, medium and low. The FGID2476SF has a stainless tub and hidden management panel that are good for the worth, however I want it had a 3rd rack, specialised water jets, Wi-Fi smarts or one thing else to assist it stand out. The $600 GE GDF610PMJES is rather more feature-rich and prices much less.
