Well, we went to Lowe's. The model we wanted wouldn't arrive for 14 days...

In the middle of Lowe's, MDH called Slyman Brothers, another local company. Yes, they had the KitchenAid we wanted. Yes, it was on special. Yes, they could deliver it tomorrow morning. MDH gave them our address, phone and a credit card numbers. Done!

Model search history:

We started out looking for a mid-priced Bosch, since Consumer's Reports rated them very highly. Then we found out that European models aren't as deep as US models (22.5 inches vs. 24.5 inches). To cope with this, Bosch turned one of the US-normal rows 90 degrees and made two rows out of it. One of the resulting rows had tines spaced about .5 to .75 inches apart. If your salad plates have any convexity at all it's not going to work very well.

So we moved down the CR list to KitchenAid. It's a little noisier (48 dB vs 46 dB), not quite as energy efficient but got almost as good a rating (79 vs. 81) as the Bosches. It has the familiar cross-wise parallel rows of tines.
