First stop: Consumer Reports, where we discovered that the top ranked dishwashers were Bosch and one - the Distinctive SHU43C0 - was only $580 and second to the best (most of the tops ones were over $800).
Second stop: the web to see what actual prices would be, on this machine as well as on another highly rated one, The Kenmore (Sears) 1603, which was a Consumer Reports Best Buy.
We found that most pricing for these machines would add up to well over $725 if we went with stainless steel and added tax and delivery.
Third stop: we emailed Levi Capland and asked him if he could sell us this machine and how much it would be. He returned our email the next day.
Total price? $646 (with tax, stainless steel and delivery).
Fourth stop: our office. The Bosch arrived yesterday. Done. MGR
