Buying Guide:

When you enter a store, you are bombarded with the option to buy. I do not think when you go on to buy a dishwasher it’s going to be any different scenario. I mean they all have metal finish, almost the same dimension, maybe few inches of difference, but you know what I mean!!

Also read: Best Washing Machines in India

So making a clear cut guide for buying a dishwasher is equally important.

1. Performance:

If all you need is to get your dishes cleaned, I don’t think spending too much would be a wise decision. Although there is no study to establish a relationship between performance and price.

2. Drying Power:

If you are a huge fan of drying, then maybe you might have to look for the dishwashers who have extra drying cycle in them. Again, you should go ahead and read those reviews.

3. Sound:

Now anything above 50 decibels would put a strain on your voice box. I mean if you switch on your dishwasher and feel like a truck running through your kitchen, then probably you should not buy one!!

4. Extra feature:

Features like specialized jet (may come at a higher cost) might to suitable for someone who has a baby at home (remember when you have to wash your dish continually) or if you have silverware. This is very subjective and depends upon the unique requirement of people!!

5. Check..check and check:

The moment you enter the shop or even still better do shopping on Amazon site!!! look at the kind of cycle option you are getting with the dishwasher. Open the front door (If I may call it that way!!) and take the racks out and then put it inside. Do that for a few more times. You will notice the difference. If doing shopping on Amazon, just check the specs or read the reviews.

6. Filter type:

Most of the dishwashers require some degree of maintenance (C’mon these are machines..not HULK!!). So you might want to look at the filter type of these dishwashers. But don’t worry about taking the filter out and cleaning it is hardly a 10 minutes job.

Most important thing to make sure your dishwasher run for years is a correct usage. Use the video below to know more:
