The verdict. When it comes to choosing a dishwasher the options are many and varied. Always opt for the best one that you can afford as the higher the price the better the appliance tends to be. If you have the space do not be afraid to fit two dishwashers in your kitchen it will be a true benefit to big families and people who like to entertain often. Most importantly be sure to site the dishwasher as close to the water point and waste bins as possible. There is nothing worse than rinsing a plate in the sink and then having to traipse drips across the kitchen on your way to the dishwasher. Finally the extra expense of opting for a fully integrated model is really worth it especially if you want to achieve a minimal luxury and high-end feel to your kitchen.
The ideal size for a small dishwasher is whatever width your cabinets are next to the sink. Standard cabinet widths are 12 15 and 18 inches. There are plenty of 18 inch dishwashers for about $400 each. They typically fit eight plate settings which would work for a family of three. 15 inch dishwashers are far and few between none of the major retailers has one. So if the cabinets next to your sink are 15 inches or less you may want to skip an under counter dishwasher all together and try one of the newer counter top dishwashers.
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.
