A Review of the Top
Six Dishwasher Brands -
|When choosing a
dishwasher, look for quietness, quality of wash, reliability,
economy, and durability. Here are six abbreviated dishwasher
reviews to look over; each brand has its unique features.
Weighing in at 49 dBA (a decibel measure), this is one quiet machine. It’s
efficient and features a variety of settings, including a
“delicate” setting for china plates, and a tougher setting for
pots and pans. It washes completely, and dries totally. However,
a Bosch dishwasher costs about $1000, which is a bit on the
pricey end, and the control panel tends to break down easily.
Also, their service technicians are a bit standoffish, by some
accounts. If you run into problems with your Bosch dishwasher,
check out the Aquastop function at the back of the machine. Pull
the machine back to drain it, and then tighten the water inlet
KitchenAid dishwashers are unique in that they offer four levels of
quietude, depending on how you want to wash your dishes. For a
more vigorous, faster wash, you won’t mind the louder settings.
On the other hand, if you’re having an intimate candlelit
dinner, you will want to opt for the quieter settings. Fun fact:
in 1949, KitchenAid became the first brand name to introduce
Maytag dishwashers are quiet – about the same noise level as the clothing
section in a department store. The bottom shelf is big enough
for the largest kitchen items, and the top shelf is big enough
for large glasses. It has four settings for different types of
washes, also features a timer that automatically turns the
machine on at a pre-set time. (A good time to set the timer is
when energy rates are lower – usually at night.) Best of all is
its ease of use -- the buttons are touch-sensitive.
