Plastic vs. Stainless

Most of the better dishwashers have stainless tubs whereas the less expensive have plastic. They both hold water, but stainless is non-porous and won't retain odors and germs like other surfaces.  

American vs. European

Dishwashers are split between American style (like Electrolux, Frigidaire, GE, Whirlpool, Maytag, and KitchenAid) and European style (Bosch, Asko, and Miele).  

The main differences are that the American style has a grinder on the bottom to handle any leftovers, considering the European style has a removable filter.  

European models tend to be quieter. They will also be flush to your cabinet, so they look better with a custom panel.
