Once the preserve of the wealthy family dishwashers are now somewhat commonplace in modern kitchens. As prices have come down however consumer choice has risen significantly. There are now a huge number of affordable dishwashers on the market so how best to choose the right model? They all essentially do the same task so there's not really that much difference from one machine to the next right? Wrong. There are a range of factors a clued up shopper will want to take into account before committing to one particular dishwasher.
The options. For a kitchen of limited space and/or budget a slim 45cm wide model is a viable option. Depending on the size of the household and how often big meals are prepared a small dishwasher should just about cope with a family of two who entertain occasionally. If more capacity is needed your kitchen designer may specify two of these to service the needs of larger families. This configuration can also be a consideration when the standard 60cm dishwasher is not adequate as two 45cm models in essence provide you with a 90cm wide dishwasher.
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.
