FFBD1821MB is rated 4.875 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Unit We bought this for our family of 3 and it does a fantastic job. It just stinks that these small ones cost as much or more than some of the full size ones. Other than that we are super happy with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I could not be more pleased with this dishwasher. Everything fits inside and it does a great job cleaning and drying. Quiet, too. The black finish is also nice, not too shiny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoying my new dishwasher My kitchen is pretty small, and unless I went with a major remodel, I had to stick to an 18" dishwasher if I wanted to have one installed. I've been using this model for a few weeks, and really like it. It's surprisingly quiet--my plumber remarked that many dishwashers have only a spray-on layer of sound insulation, while the Frigidaire is wrapped with actual padded insulation. My dishes are clean, and the stainless steel interior always looks good. I need to juggle a bit if I wash a number of large bowls, but other than that I have not had an issue with loading. This dishwasher is probably too small for a family of three or more, but it's perfect for a singleton or a couple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This new unit was to replace our old dishwasher, which also was a Frigidaire 18". I changed out myself, was very easy, per instructions.We used the old one for many years and have loved it. That is why we bought another Frigidaire, Quality - quality!!!! The 18" model is perfect for two people.
