The MDB8959SFZ promises to keep the wash-water free from food particles with its 4-blade stainless-steel hard food disposer, while it bears a fairly-common 47-dBA noise rating, which is right in the middle of our noise value table. To wrap it up, it features a PowerBlast heavy-wash program, which brings together hot steam, increased water temperature, and high-pressure spray jets for taking on tough soils -- it, however, takes a rather-long 208 minutes to complete.

Also known as Maytag MDB8959SFH, Maytag MDB8959SFE.
