Editor’s Note: Shopping for appliances will be challenging in 2020-2021. Many factories have had COVID-19 contamination somewhere in their supply chain for parts, factories, or warehouses.

Bosch, for example, is only working at 50% capacity after being shut down earlier in the year.

So you will see fewer models and brands available in the next six months to a year.

Beko is a new brand, not a new product. It's already sold in the US under its Blomberg brand. Many retailers in Boston still promote the Blomberg label.

Beko is currently doing what most new brands do: Selling you better products less expensively to gain market share.

The Beko DDT39432X has some interesting features for a dishwasher.

In this article, you will learn who Beko is, the different features than we will compare Beko to its main competition, KitchenAid, Bosch, and Miele. You can decide whether its right for you versus a more recognizable brand.

Let's get started. 

Who Is Beko?

First, Beko is a giant appliance only company based out of Turkey. They are popular in Europe and widely sold in 140 countries

As we said previously, they have been selling under the Blomberg name and producing dishwashers for Viking.

Hallmarks Of The Beko DDT39432X Dishwasher

1. Beko Dishwasher Cycles

Beko-Dishwasher-ControlsBeko Dishwasher Controls

 

Beko has three wash action levels and a third silverware rack like most other dishwashers, but it has a cycle called AquaIntense.

It’s a separate set of sprays to scour baked-on casserole dishes at the bottom of the dishwasher.

You can combine that cycle with Aquaflex distributing 60% more water pressure on the bottom and lighter amounts for delicate items like china or crystal on the top rack.

The Fast cycle cuts time in half by adding more water pressure and a higher temperature. At 167 degrees, Beko is amongst the hottest dishwashers.

So for incredibly dirty dishes, Beko has more water pressure at a higher temperature than any other brand.

2. Beko Dishwasher IonGuard

IonGuard is another Beko exclusive. The dishwasher sends negatively charged Ions to neutralize the positive ions of odors to keep your dishwasher smelling fresh.

3. Beko Dishwasher Noise

It’s also the quietest in this $1,099 price range at an almost noiseless 39 DB. It also has Wi-Fi so you can turn your dishwasher on or off from an app in your phone.

Because it’s so quiet, you may want an alert about the cycle being over rather than opening when it’s still running.

So it’s a pretty loaded dishwasher, but how does it compare to Bosch, KitchenAid, or Miele.

Beko & Their Competitors, KitchenAid, Miele, And Bosch

Drying 

In terms of drying, the Bosch, Miele, and KitchenAid may be technically better. Like most stainless steel dishwashers, Beko uses condensation or heat from the wash combined with JetDry or other finishing rinses.

KitchenAid and Miele channel outside air to the dishwasher's sides, so the moist heat is attracted to the colder air and dissipated as water.

KitchenAid also adds a heating element to absorb moisture.

The Bosch 500 series uses condensation like Beko at the same price.

At a slightly higher price, they have the Autodry feature popping the door open at the end of the cycle to release steam and moisture.

Their CrystalDry has volcanic elements to absorb moisture and increase heat, but it's over $1,200.

Washing

In terms of washing, none employ the pressurized wash like Beko, and none have specialized sprays either.

However, KitchenAid has a better silverware rack with more total sprays, including one from the third rack itself. It’s also competitively priced to a Beko at $899.

Noise

As I previously said, the average decibel rating is 44-45 DB at this price range versus just 39 for Beko. 44 is still pretty good and the standard for quietness, but 39 is almost noiseless.

KitchenAid and Bosch are two of the more reliable dishwashers at 11 and 13% service in the first year. Miele is usually the best but had a minor defect not with a performance, but with noisy solenoids last year.

For reliability, Beko is truly an unknown. There is no service history yet. Blomberg was decent, but that was years ago. Beko also has more features than the old Blomberg dishwashers.

However, they have a 2-year full warranty better than the standard one year of most other brands.

As we said in the beginning, new companies add features including warranties to entice you to buy their products.

Should You Buy The Beko DDT39432X Dishwasher?

The Beko DDT39432X is a good dishwasher to consider at $1,099, not just because other competitive models might be out of stock.

It offers the right combination of heat and water pressure to clean your dishes. It is also the quietest if you have a kitchen open to your living room.

Although it has a good warranty, service could be a concern. Find a dealer or service agent who understands how to fix a dishwasher (same I would say for any brand).

You definitely should consider Bosch, KitchenAid, and Miele, but you should also add this Beko dishwasher to that list.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
