A Yelper once called us "a rich man's Home Depot." It bothered me until I thought about it. Yes, we sell Sub-Zero, La Cornue, and Miele. Home Depot and Lowe's don't sell upscale brands. This is not a knock on Box Stores. I shop in them myself.

However, we do sell the vast majority in affordable luxury and lower-priced commodity brands like Samsung, Whirlpool, GE, and LG.

I never wanted to sell a bad product because it was cheap. People deserve better. Also, we have to fix it free on a warranty, so it's not purely idealistic.

That's why I think Beko's entry-level front control dishwasher is intriguing. You may think you need to spend $600-800 for a good dishwasher, but that's not true. The Beko DUT25401X dishwasher is only $499.

It's a nice looking unit with exceptional features for under $500. If it proves to be reliable (and it should), other dishwasher brands, like Samsung and Bosch, will have to recreate their products to compete.

In this article, you will learn who Beko is, the features of this dishwasher, and some necessary comparisons to Samsung's and Bosch's entry-level dishwashers.

At 48 DBs, it's quieter than many comparable machines. Forty-four decibels is considered quiet. You may hear it faintly.

Now how does it stack up with a Samsung or Bosch?

Both of those machines are stainless steel with plastic bottoms and not stainless steel like Beko's. Both are louder at 50 for the Bosch and 51 DBs for the Samsung.

Samsung does have a third rack for silverware and a delay for up to 9 hours. Bosch has the cycle for crystal and china the others do not have as well as a 24-hour delay.

Beko's reliability with Blomberg was good, but it remains to be proven. We will after better reliability stats after a full year of selling Beko appliances. 

Compared to Bosch and Samsung, they have lower repair rates in the first-year average than Blomberg.

Is The Beko DUT25401X A Good Dishwasher?

Yes.

It checks all the boxes. The tub is stainless, not plastic or a hybrid of plastic and stainless.

You have the cycles you will regularly use as well.

At 48 dBA, it's the quietest dishwasher in its class.

Beko is worth consideration for two reasons, even though it's unknown in the US. First, the name is well recognized in Europe.

More importantly, the next better set of features in a dishwasher will cost $200-250 more.

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.
