What to look out for when buying a freestanding dishwasher

Buying a new freestanding dishwasher is a job that requires you to put in some time. Only when you know what to look for when buying can you make an informed decision. We have already highlighted a number of points for you:

Connections

A freestanding dishwasher also uses water and electricity, so you should always make sure that these are available where you want to put it. In some cases, you can make a branch from existing pipes, but you should always check this before you buy.

The space

The advantage of a free-standing dishwasher is that you can put it in several places. However, many people forget to take into account the space around the freestanding dishwasher. There should be enough space behind the appliance to accommodate the connections and at the front, the door should be able to open fully.

The location of the control panel

For a fully integrated model, the control panel is on the inside. This means that you can only operate the dishwasher when you open the door. While the program is running, you can’t see how long the program has left or how many degrees are being used. If the control panel is on the outside, you can do all of that, but you have to keep in mind that your dishwasher will stand out more in the design of your kitchen.

The number of place settings

A good dishwasher has enough space to get all your dirty dishes clean. So always check what the number of place settings of the freestanding dishwasher is. Keep in mind that one place setting is equivalent to a plate, a glass and a set of cutlery. For small households, it may be a good idea to look at a narrow dishwasher, as you are less likely to run a half load.

The number of different wash programs.

The best dishwashers have plenty of different wash programs. Always look to see if a freestanding dishwasher has a program that fits your needs. For example, there are special programs for caked-on pans, baby bottles and very dirty dishes.

Cutlery placement

In a freestanding dishwasher, cutlery can be stored in a separate cutlery drawer on the top basket or in a removable cutlery basket in the bottom basket. The first option requires less bending, but the second makes it easier to remove the cutlery from the dishwasher.

The energy label

A dishwasher consumes both water and electricity, so if you’re looking for an energy-efficient dishwasher, always look at the energy label. The label explains exactly how much water and energy is consumed per wash.

Additional features

In addition to the wash programs, a dishwasher can also have other useful extra features, such as a delayed start, a flexible layout with an adjustable upper basket or an option to wash half a load.

The drying technology

Most dishwashers use a condenser drying technique, which sprays cold water over your clean dishes to make them dry again. This technique won’t get all your dishes dry, often requiring you to dry plastic containers with a tea towel. The best dishwasher drying technique has zeolite beads, which convert water to heat to get all your dishes perfectly dry.

Frequently asked questions about freestanding dishwashers

Are you looking to buy a free-standing dishwasher? You won’t really orient yourself to buying a new dishwasher until you’ve also read these frequently asked questions.

What is the difference between a freestanding dishwasher and a built-in dishwasher?

The biggest difference, of course, is that a freestanding dishwasher doesn’t blend in with the design of the rest of your kitchen. Instead, a complete freestanding dishwasher stands somewhere separate from your kitchen counter. The biggest advantage of this is that you don’t have to sacrifice a kitchen cabinet, but you should keep in mind that a freestanding dishwasher is always visible.

A built-in dishwasher does tend to be slightly more expensive than a freestanding dishwasher, but that doesn’t mean the best built-in dishwasher is also better than a freestanding one. The price difference is mainly explained by the extra technology involved in built-in. It is also easier to find an energy-efficient built-in dishwasher than a freestanding one.

What is the difference between a freestanding dishwasher and a built-in dishwasher?

An undermount dishwasher is not fully integrated with the rest of your kitchen, but rather just sits under the countertop. While the sides of the dishwasher are shielded, the front of the appliance is fully visible.

The best undermount dishwashers are just as good as the freestanding models, the only difference is in the way the appliance stands in your kitchen.
