A freestanding dishwasher vs. a built-in dishwasher

When you choose a built-in dishwasher, it blends in nicely with the design of the rest of your kitchen. With a fully integrated model, you won’t see that there’s a dishwasher in your kitchen. But you do have to sacrifice a kitchen cabinet, which means less space to put things away.

In addition, a built-in dishwasher always requires the right connections in the place where the appliance is to be installed. In some cases, that means you have to reroute existing connections, which is not an easy job.

 

A free-standing dishwasher vs. an undercounter dishwasher

A built-in dishwasher is placed under your countertop, so the appliance is less in the way. There is no front panel on the front, so you can still see that there is a dishwasher. You also have to sacrifice a kitchen cabinet for this, which leaves you less space for other things.

A built-in dishwasher also requires you to take into account the connections. This is because you can’t always put a dishwasher in just any place.

Buying a free-standing dishwasher: what to look for

When it comes time to buy a new dishwasher, there are a number of features to consider – we’ve listed the main ones here:

Dimensions

A freestanding dishwasher is available in different sizes, with 60 cm wide being the most common. You can also choose a narrow 45 cm wide model or a compact dishwasher that is 45 cm high.

Energy class

The energy efficiency class and energy consumption per cycle of a dishwasher is always listed on the energy label. Most dishwashers are between energy class c and energy class e.

Noise level

Especially if you have an open kitchen, it is important to look at the noise level of your dishwasher. 49 db is the loudest option here, and anything below 43 db is considered very quiet.

Layout

The inside of a dishwasher is important for how easy it is to use. For example, a height-adjustable upper basket is very useful if you often want to wash large pots and pans. Also think about the placement of cutlery, which can be in a cutlery basket in the bottom drawer or a cutlery drawer on top, where you have to bend down less.

Drying Technology

The drying technique a dishwasher uses affects how dry your dishes come out of the unit. With zeolite, your dishes will be the driest. Even plastic dishes don’t need to be post-dried. In addition, it is also fast and environmentally friendly. Ventilation drying technology is also fast and energy efficient, while condensation drying technology takes a bit longer and also uses more energy.

Additional features

Which additional features are useful for you depends on your dishwashing needs. A half load option, for example, is very useful if you don’t always have the same number of dishes. The delayed start option is useful if you want your dishes to be ready at a specific time.

The number of place settings

A 14-cover freestanding dishwasher is suitable for large households or households with a lot of dishes. One place setting equals one plate, one glass and one set of cutlery. A compact dishwasher can often accommodate between 7 and 10 place settings.

Location of the control panel

With a freestanding dishwasher, the control panel can be on the outside or on the inside. A control panel on the inside is less conspicuous, but on the other hand you can only operate the dishwasher when the door is open. Also, with a control panel you cannot always see how long the wash program will last.

Frequently asked questions about freestanding dishwashers

To make sure you know everything there is to know about freestanding dishwashers, we’ve outlined the most common questions for you.

Why should I buy a free-standing dishwasher?

The advantage of a free-standing dishwasher is that it doesn’t require you to sacrifice a kitchen cabinet. This leaves you with plenty of room to store things. In addition, not every kitchen has the option to connect a built-in dishwasher, making a freestanding dishwasher quickly the only choice.

Always bear in mind that you need plenty of space for a free-standing dishwasher. You need to be able to accommodate all the connections at the back and the front door needs to open fully.

Which freestanding dishwasher should I buy?

What is the best dishwasher for you depends on a number of factors. First of all, you should look at your kitchen. For example, in a narrow kitchen it may be a good idea to choose a slimline dishwasher rather than a 60cm wide freestanding dishwasher.

In doing so, you should also consider your dishwashing needs. For a large household, you need a dishwasher with room for 14 place settings.

Which brand of dishwasher should I buy?

Each brand of dishwasher has its own qualities. For example, a proline dishwasher is very affordable, and in addition the brand also has many freestanding dishwashers in its range. The beko dishwasher is also inexpensive and, of all the inexpensive options, is also the most economical.
