Adding a custom cabinet panel to a dishwasher and making it look good is hard. Most brands like KitchenAid, GE, and Whirlpool will protrude from the cabinet, ruining the look.

It looks like a dishwasher with a panel rather than a seamless cabinet.

You want your dishwasher to be flush to the cabinet, so it looks like a cabinet. European brands like Bosch and Miele have historically been the most popular for this type of dishwasher.

Right now, many brands offering a paneled dishwasher have supply issues. COVID-19 has affected the global supply chain in factories, warehouses, or with parts suppliers.

Bosch and Miele, the top brands for panel-ready dishwashers, have been affected the most.

So you may have to look for alternatives, and Beko may be a decent alternative.

In this article, you will learn who Beko is, the different features, then we will compare Beko to its main competition Bosch, KitchenAid, and Miele.

Who Is Beko?

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

They have been selling under the Blomberg name and produce dishwashers for Viking as well.

Beko Top Control, Panel-Ready Dishwasher DIT39432 - $999

Beko Panel-Ready Dishwasher-1

Before we look at the features of this dishwasher, it can be effectively paneled.

It is priced competitively to a Bosch or Miele at $999 versus over $1,200 for the Bosch and $1,700 for the Miele.

But would you buy it on its own merits, rather than feeling stuck with it due to lack of alternatives?

Let's look at some of their more interesting features first.

AquaIntense

Beko-Dishwasher-With-AquaIntenseBeko Dishwasher With AquaIntense

 

Beko has three wash action levels and a 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.

AquaFlex

You can combine that cycle with Aquaflex, which redistributes 60% more water pressure on the bottom and lighter amounts for delicates on the top shelf.

Fast Cycle

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 on the market.

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.

Quiet

It's also the quietest in this price range at an almost noiseless 39 DB. It's also the only dishwasher Wi-Fi so you can turn your dishwasher on or off from an app on your phone.

Because it's so quiet, you may want an alert about the cycle being over.

Ultimately, it's a pretty loaded dishwasher, but how does it compare to Bosch, KitchenAid, or Miele?

Beko Vs. Miele, KitchenAid, And Bosch Dishwashers

Beko Vs Panel-Ready Dishwashers (1)

In terms of drying, the other three may be technically better. Like most stainless dishwashers, Beko uses condensation or heat from the wash combined with JetDry or other finishing rinse aids.

KitchenAid and Miele channel outside air to the dishwasher, so the moist heat is attracted to the colder air and dissipated as water. KitchenAid also adds a heating element to absorb moisture.

Then again, I like KitchenAid, but it protrudes past the cabinets, unlike the other 3. That's the reason to put a panel on a dishwasher in the first place.

The Bosch uses condensation like Beko in most of their dishwashers. They have AutoDry, which pops open the door, releasing steam and moisture at $949.

Their CrystalDry is the best drying available featuring volcanic elements called zeolite to absorb moisture and increase heat, but it's over $1200.

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 with one from the third rack itself.

Miele has a good wash system, a good third rack, and the ability to adjust the racks in different ways to accommodate even odd-shaped dishes. But their better dishwashers with these features start at $1,599 and 1899 with a panel.

As I previously said, at this price range, the average decibel rating is 42-46 DB versus just 39 for Beko. 42 is still pretty good, but 39 is almost noiseless.

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.

Should You Buy The Beko Panel-Ready Dishwasher DIT39432? 

For a quiet dishwasher with the ability to scour dishes at a less high price by at least $300, you should consider the Beko DIT39432 just on features.

However, for the foreseeable future, you may end up buying Beko because it's the only panel-ready dishwasher available - which may not be a bad thing.

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.
