Love the blue front panel lights! You know exactly what it is doing and when it is done. Green Leds come on when it is finished. I like the capacitive touch panel, it's fun. I can't believe anyone would complain about the sensitivity of the buttons, thats what I like about it. If you do accidently touch one when you are opening the door, it lights briefly and then goes out. You have to touch a button and then hit Start for it to run. Dishes come out very clean.

Orginally I bought a Bosch and did not like it, there was no information on the front to tell when it was on or not, plus no food disposer and poorly designed racks (I put a quart Mason jay in the bottom rack and it fell through the big holes and blocked the wash arm). Luckly Lowes traded me out of the Bosch and into this Kitchenaid. Very glad I did! I also bought Lowes extended warranty with it. I highly recommend this Kitchenaid dishwasher.
