  • As stated, Energy and Water ratings are important. We have a two drawer, which allows us to run two at once, but it isn’t all it is cracked up to be. Plus it beeps incessantly at us if a button is pressed.

  • Energy rating and water rating and one that fits into your new kitchen.
    The size right for the size of your family.

  • Energy and water efficient and space for normal sized dinner plates that’s somthing to look out for

  • I would go for energy and water ratings first. In the long run they will save you a lot of money.
    If you have a small family you could consider dishwashers with two drawers, so you can use the half-cycle.

  • When I bought mine I looked online for the best budget dishwashers, then read all the reviews to make up my mind. I don’t think you need anything fancy. Just something reliable.

  • It is such a good idea to research and price match when you buy a dish washer – we price match every major purchase.

  • Check your sizing, not all dishwashers are the same size. Also water and power efficiency. Also look for one with a quick cycle. You don’t want to be waiting around for hours for your dishes to finish.

  • You firstly need to have the measurements of the space the dish washer is going into, most important. I like to go instore and check products out. I’m lucky that my daughter works in Harvey Norman, so we have a trusted and reliable person for information

  • Firstly – It is important to set a budget when looking for a new dishwashing.
    We went for a dishwasher in our price range, water and energy efficient and importantly one that suited the size of our kitchen.

  • Check size first you need it to fit. Water rating and energy rating are other important factors. There are different internal configurations so look around and see what you’ll like best.
