Which is the Best Dishwasher to Buy for Your Home?

A dishwasher undoubtedly simplifies your life. A good dishwasher will save you time and energy and economise your power and water use. Choosing the model is important, but it’s not always easy. There are many to choose from, including benchtop, freestanding, and single and double-drawer options. So, which is the best dishwasher to buy for your home? Read our guide to discover how each type works and what their benefits are.


Benchtop Dishwashers

If you have limited space in your kitchen but still want all the convenience of a dishwasher, a benchtop dishwasher may solve your problems. Benchtop dishwashers are compact and sit atop your kitchen bench, so you won’t have to make any modifications to your kitchen to install one. They are also ideal for renting or flatting situations, where making changes to the home may not be permitted. Benchtop dishwashers usually have enough capacity for around six place settings.


Drawer Dishwashers

Drawer dishwashers have two options – single or double. Single-dish drawers are a great space-saving option, while double-dish drawers take up the same amount of space as a regular dishwasher. The drawer design also requires less free space around it to open compared to standard models that need space for the door. One of the greatest benefits of double-drawer dishwashers is that you can run one drawer at a time and do smaller loads while still having the capacity to wash all your dishes at once if need be. You can also run two different cycles simultaneously so that you can take care of delicate glassware and heavy-duty pots and pans at the same time.  


Standard Dishwashers

If you have a large family or know that you will regularly produce enough dishes to do full loads, a standard dishwasher may be the right choice for your home. These models are cheaper to buy upfront. Have a look at the configuration of shelves in the dishwasher and take note of whether they are adjustable or not. If you plan on washing tall glasses such as wine glasses, larger plates, and other tall items, you will want a model with an adjustable top basket. Many standard dishwashers now come with a cutlery tray rather than a basket. Some people find loading a cutlery tray to be fiddlier and more time-consuming than a basket, so consider this before you choose which you would prefer.
