How to Choose the Best Dishwasher

If you're shopping for a new dishwasher, the many styles and options can make the decision-making process a bit overwhelming. Before you purchase your next dishwasher, consider your family size, energy expenses and sanitizing options to help determine which features you'll need.


Selecting a New Dishwasher

Consider your family size. If your kitchen is the scene of big meals and lots of cooking, choose a dishwasher with plenty of cycle options, loading flexibility for pots and pans, and multiple place settings. If you don’t do much cooking, you may prefer a quick-wash cycle for lighter loads.

Consider an energy saving model. ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwashers use less energy than other models, saving you money on utility bills. You may be eligible for local rebates when buying ENERGY STAR qualified models.

Set it and forget it. Many dishwashers offer the option of a delayed wash. This feature allows you to set the start time to begin when you want it to.

How clean is your clean? Many dishwashers offer a sanitizing rinse option that kills 99.99% of bacteria. That's great news for families wanting to sanitize items, such as cutting boards or baby bottles.

Make life easier. When you're looking at different dishwasher models, think about the features that make your life easier. Many dishwashers offer custom wash settings, multilevel sprayers, removable racks, adjustable shelves and more.

Opt for easy delivery. If the dishwasher of your choice is in stock at your local Lowe's store, have it delivered via Lowe's Home Delivery. Delivery rates vary depending on how far you live from the store, but not by delivery weight.
