How to buy a new dishwasher – the features to look for
If it’s been a while since you bought a dishwasher or if you're getting one for the first time, you may be surprised at how much they’ve moved on.
1. Modern dishwashers are easier to load: With separate cutlery trays, foldable tines and upper baskets that can be raised or taken out, they’re a doddle to load.
2. Wash times are fast: Expect them to wash a lightly soiled load in just 30 minutes, and a full haul of dirty plates in less than an hour.
3. Drying has been improved: This is thanks to special features that kick in at the end of a programme, such as an extra-hot drying cycle, a fan or an automatic door that opens to let out damp air.
4. You can wash half loads: Half-load cycles use less energy, so you don’t have to ll the dishwasher to run a guilt-free wash.
5. They’ll pick the right cycle: Intelligent dishwashers detect the load size and dirt levels, then choose the programme that will deliver the best results.
6. There's one for any size of kitchen: Compact designs no bigger than a microwave can sit on worktops to offer a smart saving-saving solution. 45cm-wide slimline dishwashers can cleaner 8-9 place settings at a time, and full size 60cm-wide versions can handle anything between 12-17 place settings. Choose a built in model and it could slot in at eye level, as well as on the floor.
In case you're wondering, a single plate setting equates to a soup bowl, dinner plate, dessert bowl, cup & saucer, drinking glass and a knife, fork, soup spoon, dessert spoon and teaspoon.
Are dishwashers efficient?
Yes, and far better than washing up by hand. A dishwasher can deal with a single dinner party-sized load using as little as 6 litres of water. Whereas it will take 20 litres of water to fill a single sink, which you might do four times to clean the same amount. Compare the water consumption on different dishwashers before you buy. It’s usually given as the number of litres used for a fully loaded machine on a normal 50°C programme.
Dishwashers also clean to a higher standard, as the water reaches hotter temperatures than your hands will cope with. To reach these temperatures, a dishwasher uses approx 1.5kW of energy per cycle. Yet a hot water system uses 2.5kW to heat the water to fill a sink.
Also, check the energy ratings of the appliance before you buy. The letters refer to energy efficiency, washing performance and drying performance. A+AA-rated models are the best.
