- Which Size Dishwasher do you Need?
Dish washers come in a choice of sizes. To choose the right size dishwasher, you need to consider the size of the area where it will be plumbed in, the place setting that you need to wash and your overall budget.
Understanding a Place Setting:
A full size dishwasher will typically hold a 12 place setting which is the equivalent of:
• 12 dinner plates
• 12 soup bowls
• 12 dessert plates
• 12 tea cups and saucers
• 12 tall glasses
• 12 individual place settings of cutlery: - knives, forks, soup spoons, dessert spoons, tea spoons
It’s important to remember that a place setting does not include serving plates, bowls, pots and pans, just the crockery and cutlery for 12 people.
A slimline dishwasher generally holds a nine place setting while a compact dish washer is large enough for a four place setting.
• A full size dishwasher is generally around 85cm high, 60cm wide and 60cm deep.
• A slimline dishwasher is the same height and depth but slimmer at around 45cm wide.
• A compact dishwasher measures around 45cm high, 58cm wide & 48cm deep, measurements for compact dishwashers vary depending on the manufacturer and style.
New electrical appliances such as dishwashers are graded with an energy efficient rating of A to G with A being the most energy efficient and economical to run. Dishwashers are graded by the manufacturers in a series of standardised tests. Energy efficiency for dish washers is based on the washing and drying functions as well as water consumption.
Dishwashers use less water than washing up by hand the same size loads and some models include a time delay function to allow you to set your dishwasher to make the most of cheaper electricity rates over night.
Deciding whether you need additional extra features such as an adjustable top basket or low noise for your new dish washer is one step towards choosing the right model. Most models of dishwasher come with a variety of pre-wash and wash settings such as half load, economy, rinse only and drying programmes and all include a cutlery basket. More expensive models may have a choice of finishes including stainless steel.
Dishwasher Features Explained
Dishwashers are fast becoming one of the most essential kitchen appliances that you can have in your home. They keep your kitchen free from clutter and save hours of dishwashing time. But with so many makes and models on the market it can be difficult to understand the differences.
Understanding dishwasher features can help you make the right choices so that you can be sure your appliance is equipped with everything you’ll possibly need and that your budget is spent wisely.
Understanding Your Dishwasher
Dishwashers come in three sizes: a full size dishwasher, slimline and compact. They are measured by the amount of dishes they can wash, which is known as a place setting. A full size dishwasher, for example, has a 12 place setting and washes 12 dinner plates, dessert plates, bowls, tea cups, saucers, tall glasses and 12 sets of cutlery.
The number of features that a dishwasher offers can depend on both the size of the machine and whether it’s a top of the range or basic model. All dishwashers will have a choice of washing programmes and the more expensive models will feature more options.
Most dish washers will include three settings. The main wash programme which washes at around 65C; an economy setting and a programme for washing delicate items such as china and glass. Most will also offer a rinse programme too. The more expensive the machine, the more programmes you’ll find. Extras can include a half load option, child safety locks and a fast ‘turbo’ speed washing option to wash dishes at a fraction of the usual time.
There are many different dish washer extras available and again the amount will depend on whether the machine is a basic or top of the range model. All dishwashers come with a cutlery basket to keep cutlery together during washing. The cutlery basket is usually removable to give you more flexible space in the dishwasher and to make putting cutlery away easier after it’s been washed. Most dish washers will have an adjustable top basket that can be removed to make room for larger items such as frying pans, large plates, saucepans or tall glasses. Some dishwashers perform with low noise meaning that the machine will run almost silently. Some come in a range of finishes including stainless steel.
