Sshhh! I can't hear the dishwasher!

KitchenAid has released a new line of dishwashers, the EQ Wash System. The "E" and the "Q" are for "Extra Quiet," as the company is really pushing the unit's low sound volume -- 48 decibels while operating, below that of a moderate rainstorm (60 decibels).

But the product is good for both your auditory environment and your ecological environment. "Alternating wash zones focus the washing action, using less water and energy for high performance cleaning," according to a company press release. KitchenAid also says that the dishwasher is 58 percent more efficient than Energy Star standards require, and it also has an efficiency designation from the Consortium for Energy Efficiency.
