Fair enough. However, if you happend to get a Miele with a lower half life I am kinda guessing the parts are pretty dang expensive, coming from the land of BMWs and all.
Regarding the stainless tub, I totally hear you. I would not ever recommend a stainless tub, it is a ridiculous indulgence, and I laugh on the lapels of those who fall for it! As I mention in the article above, Consumer Reports says a plastic tub will outlast most dishwashers.
On the other hand, my other half is not a cold calcluating pragmatic engineer, and I take responsibility for making two fatal errors during the procurement process:
1) Presented options with a recommendation.
2) Allowed interaction between my spouse and diswasher sales associates,
What the heck was I thinkin' !?
On the serious side though, my baby has to look at the inside of that dishwasher three times a day, and if she thinks yellowed plastic looks like crap, I am prepared to cough up the $250 or so it takes to remove that element of unhappiness from her life. After all, another 20 summers or so and that is it. We're outta here.
