Advice on dishwashers

Which dishwasher suits you depends on your current dishwasher and personal preference. You can choose between freestanding and built-in dishwashers. Before buying a dishwasher, check its dimensions carefully. This way, you can be sure that the appliance fits into your kitchen.


Dishwasher in kitchen

You install a built-in dishwasher in your kitchen cupboard, underneath the sink. You can choose between fully integrated, semi-integrated, and under-counter dishwashers. Depending on your preference, you need a front panel of your kitchen. In addition, it's important that you properly measure the niche dimensions of your kitchen, so that you're sure the appliance fits.


Freestanding dishwasher

You can place a freestanding dishwasher wherever you want in your kitchen. You don't have to keep any front panels or niche dimensions into account. Do you want to place your dishwasher underneath the countertop? Carefully check if it's high enough for your dishwasher. If you have limited space in your kitchen, it's also possible to choose an extra narrow (45cm wide) or extra low (45cm high) dishwasher.

Niche dimensions

Niche dimensions dishwasher

The most important thing to look for when purchasing a built-in dishwasher are the niche dimensions and the dimensions of your front panel. This way, you can be sure that the appliance fits into your kitchen. On the product page, you can see which niche dimensions the dishwasher needs. Accurately measure your niche up to the last millimeter. Do you have an IKEA kitchen? If so, read our article to see which models fit into your kitchen. Niche dimensions aren't important for a freestanding model.


Dishwasher with sound symbol

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? Opt for a dishwasher with high-end washing performance or high-end build quality. On top of that, some dishwashers have extra functions that make washing up slightly easier.
