Panel Ready Dishwashers - Are They a Good Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Aug 15, 2022 11:00 AM 

 

NOTE: Since we no longer sell the Fisher & Paykel brand, we will not be updating the Fisher & Paykel product reviewed here as of November 2021. You can view Fisher Paykel's current lineup of dishwashers by clicking here.

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!

Typical Dishwasher Dimensions - Measure Before You Shop

Posted by Todd Buehler on Aug 2, 2022 10:00 AM 

 

Before you head out the door to shop for a new dishwasher for your kitchen, one of the first things you should ask yourself is, "How much space do I have for installation?" This is especially important if you have an older home or custom kitchen that may have unusual dimensions. Most brands make standard-size models, but there are some specialty sizes that are available to fit into spaces that are non-standard.

Bosch vs KitchenAid Dishwashers - Which Should You Choose?

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jul 18, 2022 11:18 AM 

 

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 the 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 ~$700, that leaves KitchenAid out since KitchenAid's least expensive model is around $999 (although during certain sales and promotions it could be closer to $700). Bosch, on the other hand, has dishwashers starting as low as $549 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!

Bosch Dishwasher Reviews – Should You Consider a Bosch?

Posted by Alex Frank on Jul 11, 2022 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.

The 3 Best Portable Dishwashers for 2022

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Jan 28, 2022 9:15 AM 


 

If you live in a condo or apartment that doesn't have a dishwasher, or need a dishwasher for an office kitchen, a portable dishwasher might be the best option. Portable dishwashers offer similar cycle features and interior designs to built-in dishwashers, but can be moved around on wheels and hook up to your kitchen faucet and drain into the sink. In an older home or other areas with limited cabinet space, a portable dishwasher can provide the cleaning power of a built-in dishwasher without the hassle of installing it into the cabinetry and installing the necessary plumbing.
