Best dishwash vs. cost


Does anyone know what to look for in a dishwasher and are the extra dollars worth all the extra features?

Which models do you recommend for replacement?

Our last dishwasher was a Kitchen Aid, $450. @ Lowes, Stainless Steel tub, Black Door, Excellent Dishwashers and Quiet. I know SS is the favorite, summer place did not justify doubling the cost. I got a high end machine with a black door!

Thanks for all the replies. I ended up getting a midline maytag plastic tub white model (we have white appliances) and saved $50 over stainless steel. The whole it lasts longer thing just doesn't work for me since I've never seen the end to a plastic tub. Cost set me back $350 total.
