We present to you a helpful guide for how to buy a dishwasher. As you may know, a dishwasher is a very helpful kitchen appliance that not only will give you more time for yourself instead of washing the dishes with your hand, but it will also make you save money by lowering your utility bills. These are the steps that you need to follow in order to make sure you choose the right model for you.

Analyze your needs

Depending on the space that you have available in your kitchen you can choose among a regular size dishwasher or a compact dishwasher. If you need to wash many dishes each day – in the case of the big families for example, it may be more beneficial for you to buy a larger dishwasher in order to not have to load two or three times the little compact dishwasher. However, some large dishwasher models have some special cycle features that will make them clean only the dishes positioned in half of their cavity and they will behave almost like a compact one. You can learn more about this type of dishwashers if you visit www.dishwashercritic.com. On that website, you will find some excellent reviews of the best rated dishwashers on the market, including reviews of compact dishwashers and large capacity dishwashers.

How much money do you plan to invest

Knowing your budget is not an option. You can choose the best dishwasher for you only if you know from the beginning how much money you plan to spend. Choosing a basic model with some basic features will make you fit your small budget.

If you have limited space

If you’re short on space in your kitchen then having a portable or a countertop dishwasher is the best choice for you. The same thing applies for the situation when you have a low budget. The SPT Countertop dishwasher costs only $220 and it’s the best reviewed dishwasher model for its price-quality ratio. It’s economical, it comes with 6 washing cycles and it has durable stainless steel interior.

If you want to invest much money

If you have almost unlimited budget for buying a dishwasher, you can consider buying the latest dishwasher models. Some good options would be:
  • KitchenAid Architect Series II
  • Samsung DW80F800
  • KitchenAid Pro Line Series
  • LG Studio
  • LG EasyRack Plus
  • LG TrueSteam
  • Bosch 800 Series
  • Bosch 800 Plus Series
Most of them have more than 6 washing cycles. It’s good to choose a dishwasher that has at least 3 levels and at least 2 spray arms. The latest generation models imply having 2 durable stainless steel spray arms that ensure cleaning all the corners inside the cavity of the dishwasher. They all promise good quality cleaning but it’s a perfectly normal thing for the price of almost $1500.
