Washing dishes is a boring task that bothers young and old alike.

Luckily, times have changed, and these days buying a dishwasher saves time and money. If you don't have one yet because you don't know how to choose the best machine for you, you've come to the right place, as we are bringing you this fabulous definitive guide to buying a cheap, useful and good quality dishwasher.

What are the types of dishwashers available?

In the online market we can find several sales sites such as Amazon, Ebay, John Lewis, Argos, Currys which offer hundreds of cheap dishwashers. Although at first glance they all seem to be quite good, it is important to be clear about the different existing models in order to correctly determine the most appropriate one for your home.

The integrated dishwasher can be fitted with the rest of the kitchen furniture, ideal when you want to refurbish this area of the house, or in the case of moving, when we usually replace the appliances.

The semi-integrated dishwasher fits almost every kitchen perfectly and the control panel is visible.

The free-standing dishwasher is the most versatile model of all, as it can be installed anywhere in the house, as long as it is next to a water supply.

Important features to choose the perfect dishwasher

The best advice for selecting the right dishwasher is to know the needs of your home, because other decisions will be made based on that. It is not a question of buying the largest, the most beautiful or the one that has more functions, is a matter of choosing the most practical and functional.

Now we are going to broach and briefly explain the main characteristics to keep in mind before buying the dishwasher.

Size

The first vital aspect is the size of the machine. There are three standard sizes: large, narrow and compact. The large dishwashers are the most widely sold. They are approximately 60 centimeters wide and high capacity. The narrow ones are more functional, they are adaptable for small spaces and measure between 45 and 60 centimetres. The compact machines fit almost anywhere because of their width, which is less than 45 centimetres. They also differ from the rest by their shorter cleaning time.

Capacity

The load capacity of these devices is also a fact to consider . This is measured by the amount of place settings you can wash in one session. One place setting is the equivalent of the items used by an individual for a complete meal including three courses and coffee. The minimum capacity is fewer than six places, which is the size of the compact dishwashers, designed for single people or houses where just a few dishes needs to be washed. The medium dishwashers, designed for small families, accommodate seven to eleven places, while the wide dishwashers can wash from twelve to sixteen places; these are extremely advantageous for large families.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is often forgotten, but it is of great importance, since dishwashers are one of the most energy-consuming gadgets. Broadly speaking, there are seven universal marks indicating the energy consumption of each device: the dishwashers with the "A" label are the most efficient, and these are subdivided into A, A++, A+++, A++++.

Sound

Among our tips for choosing the perfect model, we would also draw your attention to the noise level. A hushed domestic machine is the machine of your dreams. Health experts recommend that you should not expose yourself to models that produce more than 60 decibels, because in the long-term it could affect your hearing.

Washing programs

Another invaluable tip is to check in detail the washing programs offered by each model, as this is the best way to find out what each program does and the true consumption of both water and electricity. A really cheap dishwasher would be one that has a cold wash cycle for poorly soiled dishes and eliminates drying.

The best brands on the market

It is impossible to complete a shopping guide and list of recommendations without talking about the leading brands in the market, those manufacturers who stand out from the rest for their renowned quality and long history.

Whether it is Amazon, ebay, MediaMarkt,John Lewis, Argos, Currys, as mentioned before, or any other business that sells household appliances, you will find Bosch, Siemens, Whirlpool and LG, the most reliable brands at the best price. Therefore, the purchase of a model belonging to one of these companies is a safe choice. Whether you are buying online or in store, by comparing models and prices you will benefit from what the retail giants such as these have to offer and should find your dishwasher at the best available price.

Bosch dishwashers offer a lower water consumption, a pre-wash program that eliminates bad smells and the "VarioSpeed" option, a program that works three times faster than a normal cycle.
