What to look out for when buying an undercounter dishwasher

Are you going to buy a new undercounter dishwasher? Then it’s important to think about a few features. To make things easier for you, we’ve listed the main features of a built-in dishwasher.

Dimensions

With a built-in dishwasher, dimensions are very important – otherwise you run the risk of having a dishwasher that doesn’t fit. Before buying, always measure the depth of the niche, the height of the niche and the height of your kitchen plinth. In doing so, keep in mind that you need to leave room behind the dishwasher for the various connections. In small kitchens you can opt for a narrow dishwasher.

Position of the control panel

The control panel on a built-in dishwasher can be either on the inside or on the front. If the control panel is on the inside, the front of the dishwasher is inconspicuous, but you cannot see how long the dishwashing program will last.

With a built-in dishwasher with the control panel on the front, it is more noticeable that there is a dishwasher in your kitchen, but you can operate your dishwasher at all times.

 

Energy consumption

An energy-efficient dishwasher uses less water and less energy, which can make significant savings for you on an annual basis. Most dishwashers have energy label C, which is fairly energy efficient.

Before you buy your new dishwasher, always look at the energy label to check what the consumption per turn is.

 

Different programs

A good dishwasher can handle all types of dishes and has a special program for fragile glasses, very dirty dishes and intensive cleaning. For smaller households, it is good to look at a program where you run a half load, using less water and detergent.

Cutlery placement

Your cutlery can be collected in a separate cutlery drawer at the top of the machine or in a basket in the bottom drawer. With a separate cutlery drawer, you don’t have to bend down and you keep more room for large plates and pans in the bottom basket. A cutlery basket, on the other hand, you can easily remove from the machine to put the cutlery back away.

The layout of the dishwasher

It’s not always just pans and plates that go into the dishwasher, sometimes you might also want to have your blender, air fryer or food processor cleaned by the dishwasher. The best dishwashers have an adjustable upper basket that allows you to easily make room for larger dishes.

Drying technology

An undermount dishwasher can be equipped with three different types of drying technology, all of which affect how dry your dishes end up being. With zeolite, there are granules on the bottom of your dishwasher that convert moisture into heat, making the dishes extra dry. Dishwashers with vented drying technology open slightly after you wash, allowing hot air to flow out and cold air to enter. This also ensures that your dishes are thoroughly dry. However, most dishwashers still have condensation drying technology, where your dishes are rinsed with cold water. This often leaves certain items still a little damp.

Frequently asked questions about undercounter dishwashers

To make sure you know all about undercounter dishwashers after reading this page, we’ve collected some frequently asked questions here.

What is the best under counter dishwasher?

The best undercounter dishwasher for you depends on your wishes and needs. There are many different types of undercounter dishwashers, so there’s always a model that suits you. Look for features that are important to you, such as the ability to wash 14 place settings or a drying function for extra dry dishes.

Why buy an undercounter dishwasher?

You can buy a built-in dishwasher if you don’t want your dishwasher to stand alone in the kitchen. The appliance is placed under your sink, making it blend in with your kitchen cabinets. But remember, you’ll have to sacrifice a kitchen cabinet, which means less room for storing things in your kitchen.

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

A built-in dishwasher can be fully integrated, meaning it has the same front panel as your kitchen cabinets. The appliance doesn’t stand out; you only see that there’s a dishwasher when you open the door. With built-in dishwashers, you can distinguish between and fully and semi-integrated dishwasher, where a whole is completely covered by the front panel.

With a built-in dishwasher, the appliance sits under your countertop, but the front is not covered by a front panel. You can just see the front of the dishwasher.

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

Freestanding dishwashers stand alone in the kitchen and an undermount dishwasher sits under your countertop. So you have to sacrifice a kitchen cabinet, which means you have less room to store other items in your kitchen.

People often choose a freestanding dishwasher because they have the space or because it is not possible to connect a dishwasher under the countertop.
