I have a KitchenAide stainless dishwasher. I always use vinegar as the rinse agent and I have had this workhorse for 10 years now.

Pour vinegar in to the tiny compartment in the dishwasher, to save a lot of money and it works better and best for the drains!
Jet Dry is often rather expensive to use in the dishwasher. Plain white vinegar will also do the job.
Use white vinegar as you rinse aid in your dishwasher instead of the costly Jet-dry, etc. for sparkling dishes!
