Buying a New Dishwasher? Read This First.

dishwasherNo one wants dishpan hands. That’s why a dishwasher is an ideal appliance for any homeowner. At Quality Kitchens, we know that dishwasher installation in Washington, DC, can be tricky. For that very reason, we’re providing this blog to give you some advice on buying a new appliance, so you get one that works well in your kitchen.

You should consider the size first of all. If you have a small family, then a compact model will be ideal, but if your family is larger, then it’s best to consider a standard-sized unit that can hold 12 to 14 place settings.

The next decision to make will have a direct impact on the dishwasher installation process. You should look at the various models on the market and choose from built-in, portable, or countertop models. Portables or countertops are good if you plan on moving and taking the appliance with you. Otherwise, it makes sense to get a built-in unit.

Another important factor to think about is energy consumption. An appliance with the Energy Star symbol will be efficient, use less electricity, and save you money on your power bill. Some new models also have delayed start options and low water washes or quick wash cycles.
