Frigidaire Dishwasher Reviews – Should You Consider a Frigidaire?

Posted by Alex Frank on Nov 19, 2019 9:30 AM 

 

In 1916, the first self-contained electric refrigerator was invented and introduced to the public. The company that created this groundbreaking innovation was purchased by General Motors in 1918 and has since grown to be one of the most trusted and well-known major appliance producers in the USA and around the world. The name of this company? Frigidaire.

Appliances have come a long way since then and somewhere between the end of World War II and Elvis taking the world by storm, the dishwasher became a ubiquitous staple item of American kitchens. Frigidaire eventually jumped on board and added the dishwasher to their lineup of quality products, and now, after a century in the appliance business, they have a full line of dishwashers, each with unique features and capabilities suited to different consumer needs.

In this article, we’re going to examine four Frigidaire dishwasher models, ranging from a basic economical model to the higher end professional model. When it comes to price, keep in mind that package deals and holiday sales can cut 20% or even 40% off of the retail price! If you are researching new dishwashers, don't overlook Frigidaire.

Best Dishwasher for the Money - Bosch vs Frigidaire

Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 18, 2019 11:00 AM 

 

Many dishwasher buyers have been looking for information about how Frigidaire's dishwashers compare with Bosch models. Bosch is widely known to consumers as an excellent brand and is very strong in the dishwasher category. They were one of the first to fill the need for quieter dishwashers and even their most inexpensive models come with stainless steel tubs. Frigidaire dishwashers are an exceptional value and offer comparable features to the Bosch brand. Their Frigidaire Professional line of dishwashers is made in one of the Electrolux factories in Italy and they have added many new quality features to the product line. The Satellite spray arms and OrbitClean wash system offer great washing performance. The new models are quieter, offer excellent cleaning performance, and dry the dishes better than many other brands.

In this article we've decided to compare two popular models at similar price points to see how the brands stack up. If you are in the process of researching a new dishwasher, you'll want to read this article!

Panel Ready Dishwashers - Are They a Good Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 11, 2019 4:00 PM 

 

If you are designing a new kitchen and want to achieve a modern and professional style, you may want to consider a panel ready dishwasher, also known as an overlay dishwasher. This style allows you to have your cabinetmaker design a panel for the front of your dishwasher which will match the doors on your kitchen cabinets and install a matching handle. These models are designed to hold the custom panel's weight and add a nice look to the kitchen. They may pair well with a panel ready refrigerator and help you achieve that integrated high-end look you desire.

There are many other factors to consider when researching a dishwasher, but if looks are a top concern, a panel ready model may be what you need. For more information to help you choose a new dishwasher, check out our dishwasher buying guide!

Bosch Dishwasher Reviews – Should You Consider a Bosch?

Posted by Alex Frank on Nov 2, 2019 8:00 AM 

 

For years, Bosch dishwashers have held a powerful presence in the appliance market since they began to focus on creating quieter dishwashers. With legendary German engineering behind their products, consumers associate the brand with high quality and performance. And for good reason - all of their dishwashers go through 485 quality checks before leaving the factory to ensure that the products are working properly, and they're "the quietest dishwasher brand in the US!" Most Bosch dishwashers for the US are made in North Carolina, although their Benchmark series is made in Germany.

They have a large array of dishwashers available, and while looking at every one of them would be a daunting task, we will look at a few of their most popular models in this article so that you can get a good idea of what this brand has to offer and the different features available. We’ll start with one of Bosch’s more basic dishwashers from the Ascenta/100 series and go on up to the 800 series.

Before we dig into the reviews, we'll go over what cool features are available from the over 100 dishwashers Bosch offers, and what the different lineups have to offer.

Many people looking for a new dishwasher have been interested in information about how KitchenAid's dishwashers compare with Bosch models. These two well-known dishwasher brands both offer great value to the customer. Bosch has a reputation for being among the quietest, most reliable brands. KitchenAid is one of the top brand names in the appliance industry and has a reputation for offering highest quality appliances to the consumer.

These two brands offer dishwashers that are very different in design and styling and each offer some unique features. Be sure to include these brands as you research new dishwashers for your kitchen. Generally when people are comparing Bosch vs KitchenAid dishwashers, they are looking for a mid-range to high-end model. If you are looking to spend less than around $700, that leaves KitchenAid out since KitchenAid's least expensive model is around $899 (although after certain sales and promotions it could be closer to $700). Bosch, on the other hand, has dishwashers starting as low as $499 before promotional pricing. 

In this article, we'll compare two popular models at similar price points from each brand to help you decide which option offers the best set of features and design choices that work for you. Let's dig in!

Quietest Dishwashers Under $1,000 - Bosch vs KitchenAid

Posted by Todd Buehler on Aug 19, 2019 10:00 AM 

 

Statistics show that dishwashers are a necessity for most families, right up there with clothes washers and dryers. Having an appliance clean up after a meal rather than hand washing is preferred as people are busy with work, school, sports, activities, and hopefully the occasional relaxing movie night. Plus, dishwashers use less water than hand washing and can sanitize dishes and cutlery with super-hot water.

Many spacious homes have the kitchen either open to the living quarters or very close by within listening distance, so having a quiet dishwasher can be critical. There's nothing worse than hearing a continuous humming sound while you're trying to read a book or talk with friends and family.  In some cases, dishwashers can run over two hours depending on the cycle, so quietness matters! 

Let's compare Bosch and KitchenAid and take a close look at two of their quietest dishwashers under $1,000. (Before we dig in, check out our writeup on dishwasher decibel levels for more info!)
