Great appliances can make or break how a kitchen works — so our guide to the best integrated dishwashers is a must-read if you are currently finding the task of selecting the right model a little overwhelming. 

From small and slimline options to those with eco settings and quick washes, integrated dishwashers are a sleek and stylish addition to your kitchen design, and a great way to take the elbow grease out of clearing up.

If you've landed on this page unsure of the differences between integrated and freestanding dishwashers, which have similar price points, note this: integrated dishwashers offer a space-saving benefit in that they take up room which would have been used for cupboards. This makes them effective in kitchens where floor and surface area is limited.

So how do you pick the best one for you and your home? We’ve got our hands dirty – so to speak – and collected the latest built-in dishwashers from the top brands for different homes, lifestyles and budgets to make the process of buying for your kitchen as pain-free as possible.

How to Choose the Best Integrated Dishwasher

There are several things to consider before purchasing an integrated dishwasher, including:

Freestanding or integrated? 

If you're unsure as to whether a freestanding or integrated dishwasher would best suit to your kitchen, here's some of the key comparisons. 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. 

Both tend to have multiple wash cycles (including eco wash settings), and while integrated dishwashers permanently live in your kitchen space, the only downside would be if you had to move out. Integrated dishwashers also offer a sleek, aesthetic benefit and help to maximise the space in your kitchen.

Speed settings

Speed can be particularly important for families, for example, because knowing how quickly a wash will take can be invaluable on school nights. It can also be useful to ensure you are economical with your washes. 

Noise

Look at a dishwasher's noise as louder models may wake up younger children, or provide a scare while you're relaxing on the night-time! 

Capacity

Make sure you assess a dishwasher's capacity so you know you'll have enough space on the racks is available - adjustable racking is handy so you can fit in larger items when needed. 

The Energy Efficiency Labels Changed in 2021

In March 2021 the energy efficiency labels underwent an overhaul. This means whereas you've likely seen dishwashers, fridges and washing machines classed as A+++, this is no longer the case. The new labels rank only from A-G. 

However, the most efficient dishwashers on the market currently have a D rating, so a product with an E/F rating will still be classed as energy efficient.

These changes are designed to push manufacturers to meet tighter restrictions to achieve the top energy rating, and ultimately is good news for consumers. 

The energy ratings for dishwashers are calculated by how much water they use compared to the amount of energy they consume over 100 cycles. This is tested using an Eco 40-60 cycle.
