Dishwashers - the main parameters
What is the best dishwasher? Modern trends in the style and design of kitchen space are increasingly forcing consumers to give preference to partially or fully embedded models. Hidden from prying eyes, they are compact, do not spoil the interior, and do not show guests what any hostess tries to hide. Traditional - floor-standing and compact, due to their practicality and functionality are not inferior to the position. However, if you compare both options, except for the method of installation and saving the space of the kitchen space - they do not have any significant differences. We note the fact that floor dishwashers are inexpensive compared to built-in ones.
A huge advantage over manual dishwashing is time saving, the complete lack of contact of delicate skin of hands with stronger chemical components of detergents and high-temperature environment( up to 75 ° C).The top main selection criteria are:
- number of sets of dishes loaded one-time;
- water consumption for one cycle;
- number of programs and modes;
- noise level;
- energy efficiency class A – G( total 7) - for the devices in question, it is determined based on the energy consumption for processing the device for 12 persons kW * hour per cycle:
- is high - “A” - 0.8–1.05( & lt; 1.06);“B” - 1.06-1.24( & lt; 1.25);and “C” - 1.25–1.44( & lt; 1.45);
- means “D” - & lt; 1.65, “E” - & lt; 1.85;
- and further low F and G;

- narrow - 85 × 45 × 60 / 9–10;
- compact - 45 × 55 × 50 / 4–6.
For small families, the optimal parameter is from 6 to 9 sets. A larger volume is most in demand among lazy and constantly busy people who accumulate mountains of dishes due to various circumstances, as well as for large families. Do not forget that the peak power consumption of these units reaches 2 kW, and not all electrical wiring( especially in old houses) is able to withstand such a load without any changes - you should think about it before buying.
