Protect your ears. Have a think about whether having a quiet machine is important to you. If it is the chances are you're going to have to spend a little more money. Look for dishwashers with noise pumps and sound absorbers and always be sure to check the decibel rating. As a guide anything under 55db is considered to be fairly quiet.
The other alternative is of course the more standard 60cm wide model that should easily provide for the needs of a family of four. Good dishwashers nowadays are quite efficient and usually include an eco cycle that whilst shorter still cleans lightly soiled crockery glassware and cutlery easily. The shorter cycle also makes it practical to do more than one load as long as you are happy to cope with a sink full of dirty dishes until then. The alternative option would be to site the dishwasher in a separate utility room where the dirty dishes can be hidden out of sight; especially useful in the open plan kitchen/living/dining spaces of today's modern home. However the compromise of locating the dishwasher in the utility as opposed to the main kitchen would involve more of a trek between the two spaces when loading and unloading; these are options to discuss with your kitchen designer. For a large luxury kitchen used by a big family two full size dishwashers may be specified.
We plan to live in our home for at least five more years and this fact does weigh on our dishwasher choice. We want to make sure we have an energy efficient dishwasher but want to be able to recoup our money. Another mistake homeowners make is buying the most expensive energy saving product. Sometimes this is not an efficient use of money. If you buy a $1200 dishwasher you may only be saving $20-$50 a year on water and energy usage. You would have to stay in your home at least 10 years to realize the savings over the $700 model. Something else to consider when buying a dishwasher.
Size up your options. While most conventional dishwashers are the under-counter type which are 60cm wide there are more compact options out there for those that want to save kitchen space. First off there are 45cm machines which have a capacity of around a third of a full-size dishwasher. That still amounts to around 20 pieces each of crockery and cutlery though so it's often an economical option for small families. Table-top dishwashers are also available for kitchens where space is at a real premium.
There are several kitchen application categories from which to choose your appliance. You can go for built-in ovens dishwashers microwaves refrigerators small appliances stoves/ranges and washers and dryers. For those people that love to sip a cool Diet Coke a kitchen appliance such as the Koolatron Diet Coke Fridge can prove to be an interesting option. On the other hand if you need to cook and eat on the outside and you wish to have fun cooking and enjoy well flavored foods there are some excellent stovetop smokers waiting for you.
