Best Dishwasher Brands for 2017 (Reviews / Ratings / Prices)

In this post, I will discuss the best dishwasher brands in the appliance industry given their features, service history, and prices.

Quietest Dishwasher By Decibel Rating (Ratings/Reviews/Prices)

by Steve Sheinkopf

There are many factors to consider when purchasing a dishwasher; the number of wash cycles, how many place settings will it hold, what colors are available, but the most asked for feature is for it to be quiet.

Dishwasher noise levels are rated in decibels, the lower the decibel number the quieter the dishwasher. A difference of just a few decibels may not seem to be much, but a dishwasher that is just one decibel more is actually 30 percent louder. A dishwasher that is four decibels more is twice as loud.

The Best Bosch Dishwasher You Should Consider (SHS63VL5UC Video Review)

by Steve Sheinkopf

So, you're buying a dishwasher? You have more choices than ever. In fact, it can be difficult to buy a good dishwasher with decent features and quietness.

There are the inexpensive brands to consider like Frigidaire, Whirlpool, Maytag, and GE. They have great features, but most of them have plastic tubs and are noisier.

Then there are the premium dishwashers like Bosch, KitchenAid, and Miele. Each of them has robust quietness factors and features. In years passed, premium dishwashers would cost about $1000.

Despite that, Bosch does have one model with pretty much every feature. It is the Stainless Steel Bosch 300 Series, and depending on the promotions it can be as low as $589 after rebates.

LG vs. Samsung Dishwashers (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

If you have not bought a dishwasher in the last 5 years, LG and Samsung will be new considerations. Both brands are based in Korea and are very innovative products. Oddly enough, the reason to choose either has very little to do with washing dishes.

In this article, we will look at both companies, their products and then compare at the end so you can decide which dishwasher would be right for you.

GE Profile vs. Bosch Dishwashers (Reviews / Ratings / Prices)

by Stan Pendrak

You look at higher-end dishwashers, and they all seem the same. They have stainless tubs, more cycles than ever and have decent to unbelievable quietness. In fact, it may be a bummer to replace a dishwasher, but the new ones are much quieter.

It wasn't always this way. Bosch and Miele changed the market in the early 1990s with a better dishwasher. For awhile, they owned the premium dishwashers. American companies like KitchenAid responded with competitive products years later.

Miele vs. GE Monogram Dishwashers (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Todd Rourke

A $1,799 dishwasher should have every option you can imagine as well as flexible racking in the interior. GE and Miele have both.

Strangely enough, your decision should be about other factors than washing the dishes (both do that too).
