Choose the right dishwasher

Dishwashers have become an essential element in the kitchen. Since they tend to be used a few times a week, it’s important to choose a model that will clean effectively and won’t consume excessive amounts of water or be too noisy.

Additional considerations

Today’s dishwashers come with many options such as customized cycles and adjustable racks.

Sensors
Sensors detect the temperature and cleanliness of the water, and adjust the cycle with every load to ensure your dishes come out sparkling.

Adjustable racks
With these types of racks, the height of the compartments can be adjusted for optimal loading no matter the size of the dishes, cutlery, and glassware you need to clean. Certain high-end models offer a third rack that comes in handy when washing pots or larger items.

Personalized cycles
Your dishwasher should offer a variety of cycles that can be adapted to your needs. For example, a delicate cycle is best suited for fragile items, while a quick cycle allows you to wash lightly used items faster.

To your tapes, ready, measure!

Certain models are equipped with levelling feet that can be adjusted to the height of your counter.

Sound levels

Since you’re likely to use your dishwasher on a daily basis, it should be as quiet as possible. A standard appliance will generally produce more than 56 decibels, while more discreet models will produce less than 40. The noise generating from your dishwasher will vary according to levels of soundproofing, the integration of a waste-disposal system, and the materials it’s composed of. As a general rule, top-quality appliances will make less noise than the most affordable models.

Energy consumption

Before making your final decision, you should consider your dishwasher’s water and energy consumption. On top of being environmentally friendly, eco-energetic dishwashers – such as ENERGY STAR-certified models, which require less water and energy – help reduce your expenses. An ENERGY STAR-certified dishwasher consumes up to 10% less energy and 15% less water than a non-certified appliance
