When choosing our best dishwasher model, we are based on factors such as wash and drying performance, noise level, capacity and design. We’ll start with our top 3 picks of dishwashers that are in stock and readily available today. This list includes some brands that you may not recognize,
But we believe these picks represent the best of the best available today at any budget level. First, our top picks for a dishwasher you can actually buy today,
|Best dishwasher model|
The industry standard is around 10 years. Keep this in mind when evaluating upfront costs. While we can’t guarantee this longevity, on average it should last about twice as long as most new dishwashers. The G4228 has a full control panel that makes it easy to select your cycle and see how much time is left, and a fingerprint-proof stainless steel panel on the front,
Which really makes a huge difference. I have mostly milled equipment in my house and we never really see fingerprints and with 2 little kids who touch everything. This model is very quiet at 46 dB.
For most people this will feel like a huge improvement over the old dishwasher. When it comes to cleanliness, Miley excels. All Miele dishwashers have a 3 rack design consisting of a lower rack, upper rack and a third row cutlery tray.
The cutlery tray replaces the traditional cutlery basket commonly found in the bottom rack of most dishwashers. This frees up space in the lower rack for more dishes, pots and pans, while giving you greater ability to organize and separate your silverware in the top rack. And since your silverware is equally different,
That’s why you’ll get better cleaning results than simply stacking everything in the basket on top of each other. Each of the 3 racks has its own dedicated wash arm, including a full width wash arm on the third rack to make sure all your silverware gets clean. For drying, Miele uses condensation instead of a typical heating element,
Which makes many people hesitant when they first hear about it. The problem with heating elements, they’re usually the first thing that breaks down on a dishwasher, they use a ton of energy, they can melt plastic and damage your dishes,
And they bake on the rest of the food, producing water spots. Condensation drying is more gentle, and when used in conjunction with rinse aid, it works about 95% good. So how does it work? The dishwasher uses very hot water as the final rinse, and when the cycle is complete, the warm internal temperature of the dishwasher cavity causes the water to evaporate from your dishes, over the sides, and down the drain.
Since there’s no heating element, it’s safe to put your plastics anywhere, even on the bottom rack, because you don’t have to worry about them melting. This works great most of the time but plastic can be especially difficult to dry because plastic doesn’t retain heat like dishes.
If you wash a lot of plastic frequently, Miele’s Auto Open feature on their higher models helps make the drying process even better.
G4228 This model has all the basic wash cycles you would expect in a modern dishwasher: Normal, Pots and Pans, Sanitizing Wash, Express Wash and Rinse and Hold.
The only downside to this model is that you won’t enjoy many of the luxury features available in Miele’s latest dishwashers. But if you are looking for a budget friendly dishwasher with great performance and this is a great pick. This is followed by ASCO’s entry level 30 Series Dishwasher, DBI663IS,
Which is our most popular Asco model at $899. kitchen design. With the 30 Series, you get all the features that make Asco great. for starters,
The TurboDry is also a dry condenser like the Miele, but with the added benefit of a fan that pushes moist air out of the dishwasher. This dishwasher is very quiet at 42 decibels, which is great if you have an open floor plan and your kitchen is next to other living spaces.
With the 30 Series, cleanliness is stellar. All Asco dishwashers have stainless steel wash arms, including a full width wash arm for the upper cutlery tray, as opposed to the smaller spray nozzle on some competing brands. And Asco has these individual high pressure nozzles for really baking on the mess.
Unlike other brands, which only include basic wash cycles on their entry-level models, all Asco dishwashers come with the same 11 wash programs, including your Normal cycle and a Quick cycle that will do most of the work, but you There’s also a crystal setting found on delicate glasses, and a sanitizing wheel designed to remove bacteria and odors from things like baby bottles and cutting boards.
The loading capacity of the 30 Series is very good. The bottom and upper racks give you a ton of flexibility and the narrow width third rack replaces a traditional cutlery basket without blocking your ability to load tall glasses. Installation flexibility is a major reason to consider Asco. Its overall height can be as low as 32″, making it one of the most versatile dishwashers on the market and able to fit into any cabinetry opening.
Most standard base cabinets offer 34 1/2″ clearance at the bottom of the countertop, but if you have smaller custom cabinetry, or an older sagging countertop, you may not have room to fit a standard height dishwasher. We find it especially helpful with tricky floor situations, especially if you have a new floor installed on top of an old one in your home. Next, is our favorite budget dishwasher you can actually buy from Beko today.
Let’s be honest, we at Designer Appliances are appliance nerds so I have a hard time recommending a budget dishwasher. However, we understand that not everyone is looking for top-notch performance and some people just want something that can clean dirty dishes and make the task of washing dishes a little easier. The Beko DUT25401X is that pick.
Beko is a new brand you probably haven’t heard of, but don’t be intimidated by it. Beko is truly one of the largest appliance brands in the world. They have just recently started expanding into the US, but have made a huge investment in making sure they have the support network to back their products.
We just recently started carrying Beko and we have been very impressed. This model offers a ton of great features with an impressive price tag that drops to around $500 during seasonal promotions. This is a really great product for a $500 dishwasher. It’s quiet at 48 dB and has a stainless steel interior tub which is an upgrade over the plastic tubs you typically find on dishwashers at this price point.
The inner baskets are also impressive for the price point. Both the upper and lower baskets seem to be very sturdy and well made. The upper basket is also height adjustable. We’re going to be doing an in-depth review on all Beko dishwasher models soon, but so far we’ve been extremely impressed with the quality of their products.
So this covers our top picks that are available to buy today. But what if you are willing to wait? If you want to save a little money on Miele and are willing to wait, our top pick for most people is the 500 series dishwasher from Bosch. When friends and family ask us which dishwasher to get, it’s usually that model. is what we recommend. However, due to the pandemic, it is nearly impossible to find Bosch dishwashers in stock.
If you’re willing to wait and are in the NJ and NY area, stop by or give us a call and we’ll be happy to save your space for one of these models. We currently anticipate that these will be available at the end of the year or the beginning of the next. The 500 Series is packed with great features and offers some of the best reliability around. At around $899, it’s not cheap, but when considering all it has to offer, the 500 Series is a great value.
This beautifully designed dishwasher is available with either a pocket handle (our most popular option) or a bar handle. Bosch is known for its quiet dishwashers, and this model is no exception. At only 44 decibels, this dishwasher is built to blend in with your kitchen. In fact, it’s so quiet that Bosch puts a discreet red light on the floor to indicate operation.
Similar to the Miele we talked about, this Bosch has an AutoAir dry door, which opens slightly to let out excess moisture after the cycle is over. If drying is important to you, consider upgrading to the Bosch 800 series which includes CrystalDry,
Which we cover in detail in our Bosch review linked below. The interior of this dishwasher is also super customizable, with features like EasyGlide racks and FlexSpace tines for bulky items. If you have your heart set on this or any other Bosch dishwasher, seriously consider looking at Thermador. Thermador is a luxury brand from Bosch.
They share the same platform with some minor quality improvements. They’re more expensive, but if you want a Bosch dishwasher right now, Thermador may be your best and only bet. We’ve included links to our top Thermador picks below. We hope this video has given you a great start when it comes to choosing the right dishwasher for your home.
