A guide to buying a cheap dishwasher

With time becoming more and more valuable to people, the advantages of a dishwasher can be easily seen. Not only does it save you the chore of having to wash and dry dishes, cutlery and the like, but it also allows you to spend that time doing other things. This article will be discussing what to look for when buying a cheap dishwasher.

Things to consider

Size matters It indeed depends on what sort of size dishwasher you are looking for. For larger families, buying a small dishwasher might be a false economy in so far as you might have to run two dish-washing cycles to clean all of your dishes. This will work out more expensive in the long run, than compared to buying a larger one, which will be better for your needs. You also have to consider the space available for your dishwasher. In the UK, the dishwashers come in three sizes, 60cm (full size), 45cm (slimline) or compact (typically 50cm or less). Efficiency and energy usage Nowadays, all dishwashers come with a label explaining their energy, water usage, washing and drying efficiency. The best washers are rated A (very good) to G (poor). Even though you may be on a tight budget, it is always worth considering to buy a slightly costlier, but better-rated washer, as this really will save you considerable amounts of money in the long run. Type available There are three main types of dishwasher to consider. These are free standing, semi-integrated or fully-integrated. Free standing washers are exactly like that, and can be slotted into a space in your kitchen for example. Semi-integrated washers have a visible front, but the top of the machine will be at the same height as the rest of the kitchen furniture. Fully-integrated dishwashers are hidden from view, and will look by all means as part of the standard kitchen furniture.

Where to buy

High stores and online shopping There are many options for buying a dishwasher, ranging from high street stores to shopping online. One thing that will save you considerable money though is to shop around. Spending an hour or so, by looking at several different places will show vastly different prices for the same appliance.
