How to Choose the Best Dishwasher
There are several things to consider before purchasing your integrated dishwasher.
Budget is an obvious factor, and the next consideration is do you want it to be freestanding or integrated? Freestanding units are generally no wider than 60cm and are positioned just below your kitchen worktop. Integrated models tend to sit behind a façade that matches your kitchen cupboards. Slimline models are available too for smaller kitchens.
Speed is important too. For families, knowing how quickly a wash will take can be invaluable on school nights, but it can also be useful to ensure you are economical with your washes.
Ensure you look at a dishwasher's noise too. Louder models may wake up younger children. And look at capacity so you know you'll have enough space before you buy.
