Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Dishwasher Buying Guide

Dishwashers are an invaluable time saver in the modern household - nobody likes having to spend ages washing up dishes after a good meal! Our dishwashers have a variety of shapes, sizes and capacities to fit the needs of every family.

Dishwashers come in 3 main sizes: full size, slimline & compact. The smaller the machine, the easier it is to fit into your kitchen - with the tradeoff that it will be able to wash fewer dishes at once.

Full size machines can usually hold around 150 items, and will have space enough for the largest dishes and plates, as well as saucepans and pots. They are suitable for large families, and those who generate lots of dirty plates.
Slimline dishwashers are usually as tall as full size dishwashers, but substantially thinner than their larger cousins - they can usually hold somewhere around 100 items. They offer a good trade of space vs. capacity.
Compact dishwashers are smaller both in height and width, and usually hold around 50 items. The small profile of these machines make them ideal for small kitchens and limited space, but they can hold far less than full size dishwashers.

Dishwashers also have a washing and drying class, ranked from A to G. The higher the class, the more efficiently the machines will wash and dry dishes. This means less chance of food and stains at the end of a cycle, and a better quality of cleaning overall, so it's worth going for the best washing/drying class you can afford.

Adjustable/Customizable Baskets

Many dishwashers contain the ability to adjust the height of both the lower and upper baskets, or even removing them completely. This can help you fit in extremely large or bulky items - such as serving dishes, woks or soup pots - with ease. Several of our dishwashers also contain customisable upper and lower baskets, so you can change the layout of the dish racks, cup holders, etc to best match your needs.

Programs

Modern dishwashers contain several different programs for efficiently cleaning you plates and cutlery. Most will contain a quick wash, which is the fastest and least effective cycle, and a thorough wash for extremely dirty dishes.

More advanced models may have several additional programs, such as pre-wash cycles, a cycle that concentrates washing power on the lower basket, and a sensor wash that automatically detects how full the machine is, and sets the time/power level accordingly. All of these extra programs save you time and energy in keeping your kitchenware tidy and clean!

Noise

Noise levels for appliances are measures in Db - most dishwashers fall between 40-50Db. This is rather quiet - equivalent to the background noise of a refrigerator running - so shouldn’t disturb conversation. Some models even have a special ‘quiet mode’ cycle, which will run even quieter than usual.

All our dishwashers are graded on their energy efficiency. The higher the grade, the less energy will be used per cycle, and the cheaper the dish washer will be to run. Look for a washer graded at A++ or above for the best efficiency in daily use.

Place Settings

'Place Setting' is a measurement of how much crockery/cutlery/etc can fit in the dishwasher. A 'place setting' is defined as: a dinner plate, desert plate, single glass, soup bowl, tea cup with saucer, and an assortment of cutlery.

Comparing all dishwashers, the place settings range from 5 place setting to 16 place setting. The place settings of the majority of dishwashers range from 13 place setting to 15 place setting. The LG LDF5545SS, which is available at $599.00, has the most place setting and is a dishwasher that takes 15 place setting place settings. The Miele G4720SCI, which is priced at $1,599.00, has the least place setting and is a dishwasher that takes 9 place setting place settings.

A greater number of place settings means that the dishwasher can fit more crockery and cutlery in at one, making it faster and more economical for very large cleaning loads.

Noise Levels

'Noise Level' denotes how much noise the dishwasher makes when it's in use, measures in decibels (dB).

Across the range of dishwashers, the noise levels range from 38dB to 96dB. The noise levels of the majority of dishwashers range from 44dB to 46dB. The Samsung DW60M5010FS, which is priced at $999.95, has the loudest noise level and is a 52dB dishwasher. The Asko D5434XL, which is available at $499.95, has the quietest noise level and is a 46dB dishwasher.

Less noise makes for a nicer atmosphere while the wash is running, and means the machine is less likely to disturb and annoy people.

Energy Efficiency of Dishwashers

The Energy Efficiency Class of a dishwasher shows how well it uses energy, and how much is unnecessarily wasted. Products are ranked from G to A++ in terms of how little energy they use compared to the norm.

We found 1,304 dishwashers that have an energy efficiency rating of A++, which makes this the most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new dishwashers. We found 836 dishwashers that have an energy efficiency rating of A+, making this the second most frequently found energy efficiency rating amongst new dishwashers.

A dishwasher with a better energy efficiency rating will consume less energy whenever they are used, saving you money and making them better for the environment.
