Advice on built-in dishwashers

When you're looking for a built-in dishwasher, it's important to keep various things in mind. You'll have to keep in mind where you're going to place it, and to what degree you want to build it into your kitchen. On this page, we'll explain the most important choices, so you can easily find the best built-in dishwasher for you.

Type of built-in dishwashers

Dishwasher in a kitchen

Which type of built-in dishwasher you need depends on your current dishwasher and kitchen. Do you want your dishwasher to blend in nicely with the rest of your kitchen design? If so, opt for an integrated model. You do need a front panel for this. Don't have a kitchen panel? An under-counter dishwasher is a good choice.

Niche dimensions

The most important thing you have to keep in mind when purchasing a built-in dishwasher are the niche dimensions and the dimensions of the front panel. This way, you'll know for sure that the appliance fits in your kitchen. You can see which niche dimensions the dishwasher needs on the product page. Carefully measure the niche down to the millimeter. Do you have an IKEA kitchen? Read our article to see which models fits in your kitchen.


Dishwasher with a sound icon

Don't want any noise while it's running? A dishwasher with a noise level of 43 decibels or lower is silent, so you can barely hear that the appliance is turned on. Dishwashers that aren't silent often have a special night cycle with a low noise level, so you can sleep without being interrupted.

Energy consumption

Energy label

Most dishwashers have an E energy label. Do you want an extra energy-efficient dishwasher? Choose a model with a D energy label or higher. The dishwashers in this class often have a low noise level and ensure that your dishes are extra dry after the cycle.

Extra functions


Is a good washing performance or a long lifespan more important to you? Choose a dishwasher with a high-end washing quality or a high-end build quality. In addition, some dishwashers have extra functions that make cleaning the dishes slightly easier.
