Kenmore Elite Dishwasher, in Action

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher, in Action

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Kenmore.

I think the best way to appreciate the Kenmore Elite dishwasher is to see what it can do.

It really is amazing. So far I only have one complaint about it. And that is that I wish it would unload itself. Is that really too much to ask? Everything else about it is so high tech couldn’t it have long robot arms that stretch out and put everything away? C’mon Kenmore, get on that.

I kind of feel sorry for the dishwasher. I think it feels like it is slumming with the other appliances currently in my kitchen. I make sure to whisper sweet nothing to it as often as I can so that it knows I love it best.

Honestly, the only negative thing I could possibly say about the dishwasher is the retail price. It is significantly higher than other top of the line dishwashers. I realize the other dishwashers don’t have the cool LCD thing, but coolness aside, that isn’t what washes the dishes. But I assume that just like people buy Mercedes when they could buy, well, my car, that there are those willing to pay extra for the cool, wow, latest technology factor.

Now if Kenmore does add the arms feature I mentioned above, it would be worth every last cent I have. Which generally speaking is about the same as the current retail value of the dishwasher.

And now let me tell you about my other precious, the Kenmore Elite coffee maker.


Want to know why the photo is blurry? Because I was shaking with excitement.


You fill that top resevoir with the coffee beans and then set the coffee pot for the number of cups that you want it to brew, the strength of the coffee (strong, please!), and it grinds the beans and delivers them into the filter.


One of my favorite things about the coffee maker is that it blinks a little reminder telling you to check the filter. Even though I forgot a few times the first week I had the coffemaker, whoops, but I blame my 5am wake-up time for that.


I love this coffee maker. And would love to give you one, too!

So, let me ask you this… how would you like your own Kenmore Elite dishwasher (or refrigerator, oven, or washer/dryer)? Maybe the better question is why wouldn’t you want to win them? I bWell now you have the opportunity. Visit the BlogHer.com review round-up page and enter a comment for a chance to win one of the major appliances.

Comments left on this post will entered into a drawing for a Kenmore coffee maker! (Rules here) I can not wait to get mine and tell you how it works. My expensive coffee maker died a slow and painful death. Of course I ignored all signs that pointed to its imminent demise until it sputtered and refused to turn on one dark, dark morning. And then I bought a super cheap coffee maker that doesn’t have an automatic shut-off and threatens to burn my house down every day.

    Right now, I have an automatic dishwasher - two of them! Their names are Bebe Boy James and Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn. But since Not-So is off to college next year, I will either need to pitch in and wash dishes myself (shudder) or pony up and get a plug-in dishwasher :) I love that coffeemaker too. I’ve been in exactly your situation where my pricey coffeemaker simply didn’t turn on one morning, and I had to run out and buy a $20 coffeemaker (no timer, no auto shut-off, the smell of burnt coffee to greet me when I return from work in the evening because I NEVER remember to turn it off).. heavenly .. :)

    Sounds like a great dishwasher. Mine is on its last leg.

  3. Cory says:

    I would love a coffee maker that I could set… for just about 20 minutes before I have to get up! Would love to wake up to the smell of coffee and better yet have is ready when I am! Great blog!

  4. De says:

    What a great-looking coffee pot - I would love to be able to have coffee from fresh-ground coffee beans every day!

  5. Lisa says:

    Everything is so beautiful in this post. Wow. Is it sad that I am captivated by a dishwasher??

  6. Michele P. says:

    I actually have an old Hotpoint dishwasher from the 80’s… it was great in its day, but now after seeing LCD displays and all the bells and whistles I want one of these! lol. I do have to admit though, that if they can figure out how to get it to unload itself and stack those dishes in the cupboards everyone will want one! That coffee maker is sweet too… we love fair trade coffee beans from Guatemala and this would be a great way to get hubby a taste of home.
