Is The Beko DUT25401X A Good Dishwasher? (Reviews / Ratings / Prices)

Is The Beko DUT25401X A Good Dishwasher?

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.

Who Makes Beko Dishwashers?

Beko may have a German name, but it's Turkish. They are well known in Europe and a major brand. In the US, For dishwashers, they produce the Blomberg brand. They also manufacture dishwashers for Viking.

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.
