Dishdrawers and other compact dishwashers are great for smaller homes. Most dishdrawers are designed to take up less space, sometimes taking up as little room as a microwave would! For busier households, double dishdrawers are a flexible and versatile option as they allow different cycles to be run at once.Shop Our Range
A fully integrated dishwasher is designed to look exactly like one of your kitchen cabinets. Unlike most modern dishwashers, fully integrated dishwashers have a control panel on the inside of their door - so when they’re closed, you won’t even know they’re there!Shop Our Range
When choosing the perfect dishwasher, there are a few other things you should consider
When looking for a new dishwasher, you should measure the space available in your kitchen. If it’s going to be a built in dishwasher, you’ll want to make sure that it will fit under your benchtop, and then it will not be too wide or too deep to sit flush next to your cabinetry. If you’re purchasing a freestanding dishwasher, measure the space where you plan to install it. Dishwashers come in a variety of different sizes. For narrow spaces and small kitchens, you’ll find that there are options like narrow width dishwashers and benchtop dishwashers available.
When choosing a dishwasher, you should be careful to consider its load capacity. If you’re purchasing for a single person household, or don’t plan to use your dishwasher very often, you probably won’t need a big capacity dishwasher. If you’re buying for a busy household or a larger family, you’ll want to look for a dishwasher with plenty of room for all your dishware and cutlery.
Dishwashers come with different water and energy efficiency ratings. If you’re looking to save money on your bills, look for a dishwasher with good ratings and keep your eye out for options with eco-wash settings.
How quickly will your new dishwasher finish a load? Some dishwashers will be quicker than others to complete their wash cycles. If getting the dishes done quickly is a priority for you, look for dishwashers with Quick Wash features.
Dishwashers come in a wide range of different finishes. Think about your style and the overall design of your kitchen when purchasing one. Do you need something in white, silver or matte black, or would you prefer an option that blends in with your cabinetry?
When shopping for a dishwasher, you should also look out for other useful features, like anti-flood devices (which will help to prevent a puddle on your floor), adjustable dish racks or extra large tubs.
Integrated dishwashers and semi integrated dishwashers are very similar, but the position of the control panel differs. With an integrated dishwasher, the control panel is located inside. Because there are no buttons or dials visible from the outside, an integrated dishwasher will look just like all of your other cabinets when it’s closed. A semi integrated dishwasher on the other hand has a control panel built onto the external fascia, so while it looks like one of your cabinets, it is distinguishable as an appliance.
