Things to Consider
When considering choosing a new dishwasher there are a few things to consider before deciding on a particular model, for example dishwashers are available in various dimensions and capacities, they each have different energy ratings, come in a choice of colours and finishes, are available in freestanding or built-in versions, plus they often have special features which can make life easier!
When it comes to finding the best deals on dishwashers, then, like all large purchases, it pays to shop around and compare prices. If you're paying in cash for your new dishwasher, then the large high street stores will typically offer the best prices, but before you order, ensure you double check online for any special offers or discounts available. If you can wait then waiting for the sales after Christmas is a great way to save!
Buying a used dishwasher is also an option you should consider. There are many cheap dishwashers up for sale on sites like ebay and preloved where you can find some really good deals.
Also, when comparing prices on dishwasher finance remember to always check the "total amount payable" figure to ensure you choose the cheapest deal.
Obviously at the very least you should measure where you'd like your dishwasher to go before you order and make sure the new model will actually fit!
Freestanding dishwashers are best if you already have the space but with a fitted kitchen choosing an integrated dishwasher will give that modern seamless look.
Choose a capacity that will suit your circumstances, for example full size dishwashers can handle all the dishes for a 12 place settings at a time, but if you live alone and don't have many guests, this will be overkill and a much smaller model that is cheaper to run will be adequate.
You can even get compact tabletop dishwashers that can hold up to four place settings which are perfect for singles and couples that occasionally have guests for dinner.
With ever increasing energy bills, choosing a A+++ dishwasher can help save plenty of money over the lifetime of the dishwasher. So much so that it's definitely worth factoring in.
The price of the dishwasher is obviously going to be one of the most important considerations. We recommend comparing as many stores as possible to find the best deal.
As with all products, certain brands are better than others. Once you've shortlisted a few models, it's a good idea to check out some reviews from customers who've already bought the item.
Dishwashers can come with all sorts of added extras including LED lighting, delay-timer settings, quick wash, flood prevention, and even wifi!
