How to Choose a Dishwasher

Like any luxury appliance, there are key factors to consider before choosing the right one for your home. First and foremost, you should measure where you want to install a high-end dishwasher. It’s also best to know the different capacities and capabilities of the dishwasher to be sure it’s best for you. Read on to learn more about the different features of a luxury dishwasher.

ENERGY STAR® Certified

It’s more important than ever to be conscious of your impact on the environment. ENERGY STAR® Certified appliances save energy, save water and help protect the environment. This widely trusted and recognized label means that the appliance meets standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Products that are ENERGY STAR® certified undergo ongoing verification testing.

Dishwasher Size

The standard size of a dishwasher, luxury and low-end, is 24-inch wide. This size is nearly universal across the industry, as it is the size built into your cabinets for installation. If you are uncertain about the size of your kitchen, be sure to measure the area you plan to place the dishwasher, and check the sizing dimensions in the details of the product. Sometimes, a dishwasher may have sizing just under or just above 24-inches, as it accounts for the spacing of the handles.

Luxury Materials

A luxury dishwasher has a sleek and upscale appearance to fit in your high-end kitchen. A luxury brand will also offer distinctive, exclusive colors and finishes in premium materials, like the RISE and NOIR finishes offered by JennAir brand. These appliances will be made of materials like stainless steel to create fine lines and a seamless finish. The handles will be made of metal and often there will be a striking interior to showcase your dishes and glassware. 

High end dishwashers will also come panel-ready, so you can customize the exterior of the appliance to blend with the cabinetry of the rest of your kitchen.

What are the Different Types of Dishwashers?

From washing dishware after a dinner party or cleaning the kitchen after a meal with your family, there are different types of high end dishwashers available to fit your lifestyle.

Built In Dishwasher

A built in dishwasher will traditionally come in the standard size of 24-inches and will be integrated and installed underneath your countertops. You do not need to sacrifice performance for an upscale look of your high end appliance, as the sleek look will elevate your kitchen. A high end, built in dishwasher will also accept different wood panels to match the cabinetry in your kitchen.

Oversized Dishwasher

There are large-capacity dishwashers that can be customized to fit your kitchen. These oversized options can be helpful for those who like to host and entertain often, allowing you to clean up more efficiently after occasions. A larger dishwasher can hold more dishes but results in you having to remodel your space for it to fit properly within your kitchen. 

However, even if your dishwasher is not oversize, a high end dishwasher will allow you to customize your appliance to your liking. A luxury dishwasher is still very flexible in the different types of exteriors and interiors you can choose from, like the dishwasher’s tines, as well as the adjustable racks to fit your dishes and third rack for your cutlery.

Dishwashers for Small Kitchens

Whether your high-rise condo, office, yacht or lanai doesn’t have the space for a full-sized dishwasher, there are different compact dishwasher options that are available for smaller spaces, like compact dishwashers. While compact dishwashers will help you clean your dishes, you also sacrifice many features, capabilities, and functions in favor of saving space.
