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.
Both the above sizes of dishwashers come in three different configurations: freestanding semi-integrated or fully integrated. Freestanding is the most cost effective version and fully integrated the more expensive. The freestanding models are best used in separate utility rooms or where budget is a constraint as they tend to be bulky and unsightly. The semi-integrated model basically means that although the dishwasher front has an integrated kitchen furniture door the control panel is still visible along the top. This works well if there are drawers of a similar height either side of the dishwasher and thus the visual line is carried through.
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 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 price difference is only related to the capacity or size of the dishwasher while the number of functions and programs the same it can happen that slimline dishwashers have more features than standard dishwashers. Some of important features are half load delay start special basket for cutlery multifunctional table button and others.
