Shopping for a new dishwasher is much like browsing for any other major appliance. Firstly, if you’ve had positive or negative experiences with a particular brand, this will definitely affect your decision. For instance, if you have a Whirlpool washer that has served you incredibly well for years, you might be inclined to opt for a dishwasher from the same brand. It’s also worth noting that different brands release a multitude of models. This allows each brand to cater to different needs and budgets. Different models will perform differently and each will offer its own unique benefits. With all of this in mind, here are some of the top dishwasher models available.
KitchenAid appliances have gained a positive reputation over the years for several reasons. This particular dishwasher model is known for its convenient front-facing screen which allows you to easily monitor the status of the wash cycle. Another advantage of this model is its dish drying power. We often focus on how well dishwashers clean our dishes, but this dishwasher is also great at getting them dry faster. On the downside, it is not as energy efficient as other models.
Yet another well-established brand in the household appliance industry, Maytag makes the list too. This is a relatively basic model with all the necessary features but lacking the bells and whistles that we seem to have become accustomed to. It is also worth mentioning that this model does not have a third rack which means that it does not hold as much as several other models. That said, if you can forego fancy features and if a somewhat louder dishwasher doesn’t bother you, then this certainly is an option to consider. One of the best parts about this dishwasher is the fact that it is so affordable and is backed by impressive warranties.
Miele Lumen EcoFlex
According to the manufacturer, their appliances are designed to last for at least 20 years with normal use. So, while they can be on the pricey end of the scale, many people prefer to spend a bit more initially and avoid a premature replacement. Stainless steel gives this dishwasher a clean and modern look. For many, the efficiency and effectiveness of this appliance makes it more than worth the extra investment. Also, it’s important to note that the recommended detergent for this particular dishwasher is also on the more expensive side.
For those who live in apartments or small homes with limited kitchen space, this is an excellent compact dishwasher. It has a handy speed cycle for quick washes and it’s not too noisy either. One possible disadvantage is the fact that the food trap on this model needs to be cleaned often. It is best to clean it after each wash cycle to prevent food and grime or building up or becoming hard and difficult to remove.
Thermador Star-Sapphire Series
If you like to get things done in a hurry, no matter the cost, this is the dishwasher for you. With an impressive 20-minute wash cycle, you’ll have clean dishes before you know it. The main downside of this model is the price. For those who can afford it and who need speedy results, it’s worth the spend.
Bosch 300 Series
Bosch is another well-known name in the appliance industry and it is an overall winner with this dishwasher. It is in the medium part of the price scale since it’s not the cheapest out there but it does not necessarily mean it will break the bank. The racks are adjustable which offers excellent flexibility when it comes to washing larger dishes. Plastic dishes may take longer to dry but, on the plus side, you can be sure that your dishwasher will live up to the brand’s reputation for reliability.
