Whether you're in the market for your first dishwasher or looking to upgrade an older model, be prepared to be amazed. Manufacturers in 2019 have outdone themselves with high-tech, high-efficiency features that astound and impress.
With all of these amazing dishwashers on the market, it can be difficult to parse out the best. That’s why we’ve collected the best new dishwashers of 2019, with a look towards what 2020 has in store. Let’s get started.
First, Ensure the Dishwasher Has All the Fundamental Elements
While most top brands are stepping up their efforts to innovate, don't forget to look for the fundamental elements that every dishwasher should include.
- The dishwasher should wash and dry your dishes. Don't assume that a high-priced appliance loaded with all the latest state-of-the-art features will do this well. Look for dishwashers with several wash cycles and drying techniques.
- The dishwasher should run quietly. New machines run longer to make up for reduced water and energy usage, so you'll want to be sure noise levels during operation are as low as possible. Anything below 50 decibels is good.
- The dishwasher should have a flexible design. Convenience options like height adjustments, movable tines, and third racks make washing easier.
- The dishwasher should be reliable. Stick with brand names that have a history for dependability and durability.
With so many designs, styles, options and price ranges, making the right choice for your needs can be overwhelming. To help you sift through the monumental task, we've done the research for you and come up with a list of the best new dishwashers in 2019 and which models are projected to be the best for 2020.
