What to look for when buying an undermounted dishwasher

An undermounted dishwasher is slightly different from a built-in dishwasher or freestanding dishwashers. So there are a number of features of the appliance that you should consider when buying a new undermount model.

Depth of the niche

A built-in dishwasher is always placed in a niche, so you have to pay very close attention to its dimensions. A built-in dishwasher doesn’t sit exactly in a niche, but it is nice when the appliance doesn’t stick out beyond your cabinets. Therefore, always measure how deep your countertop is from the back point. Keep in mind that you still need an average of 10 centimeters for the cables at the back.

Location of the control panel

The control panel on a built-in dishwasher is often on the outside of the appliance, as with a freestanding dishwasher. This makes it easy to turn on and also to see how long the program will last and what temperature it is set to while it is running. The control panel can also be on the inside. Then you can operate the appliance alone and see the residual time indication when you pull open the door.

Cutlery placement

A dishwasher can put the cutlery in two places, in a cutlery drawer at the top are. The other option is in a cutlery basket on the bottom drawer. There are those who claim that cutlery gets cleaner in the cutlery drawer, but there are also plenty who actually prefer the cutlery basket. One thing that is for sure is that you don’t have to bend over as much when you have to put the cutlery in the top drawer.

Energy rating

If you are looking for an energy-efficient built-in dishwasher, you should pay close attention to the energy class of the appliance. Most undercounter models have energy class c, energy class d or energy class e. An extra-efficient dishwasher has energy label a, but these are much less readily available.

The Programs

Which programs your ideal under-counter dishwasher has depends on what kind of dishes you have. For example, if you often wash glasses, there are models with a gentle program, which is extra careful with your dirty dishes. For dishes that are not that dirty it is sometimes better to choose a short program and if you want to use as little water as possible, an eco-program is very useful.

Additional features

The most suitable dishwasher for you has useful extra features. For example, if you have an adjustable upper basket, you can remove it to make more room for pans. It can also be nice to choose a model with a delayed start, so you can be sure that the dishwasher will be ready when you get home. There are also options for extra dry dishes, such as a zeolite drying technology. This is useful for plastic containers that don’t dry quickly in other dishwashers.

Common questions about undercounter dishwashers

When searching for the best undercounter dishwasher, it’s also helpful to consider questions that are often asked by other buyers. That way, you’ll find out things you might have overlooked yourself.

Why buy an undercounter dishwasher?

An under-mounted dishwasher is particularly well suited for flexible layouts, because you simply build an under-mounted dishwasher in under your countertop. Undermounted dishwashers also don’t need their own front panel, you can place them very easily in your kitchen. Their own door is often available in white or silver color, so there is always a model to match your kitchen.

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

First of all, installing a built-in dishwasher is a little trickier than under-mounted dishwashers, because a built-in model has to fit very precisely into the niche. Depending on which type of built-in dishwasher you have, you’ll also need to cut the front panel of your kitchen to size, otherwise you’ll be facing a stainless steel front. There is only one way the dishwasher can be slid straight into the niche, and with that, the appliance must also be level.

What is the difference between a freestanding dishwasher and an under-counter dishwasher?

An undermount dishwasher is slightly different from a freestanding model because an undermount model has no panels on the side or top. So it doesn’t look as nice to place it freestanding in your kitchen. A freestanding dishwasher looks covered from all sides, so you can easily place it separately in your kitchen.
