9. Swan Retro Dishwasher
Very There are nine other colours to choose from with this model, as well as matching retro-inspired products from sensor bins to kettles and microwaves. Those clean lines mean you will have to open the door to check on controls if you don’t programme correctly first time, but the chunky pull handle made it easy to access. Upper and lower baskets were well positioned at default setting, giving taller glasses room on top. This model’s efficient cleaning and the well-balanced height of its baskets meant tall glasses fitted in its top slot with ease.
The timer delay is a great feature if you would rather the machine didn’t run when you are around.
Freestanding Slimline Dishwashers
For both standard-sized and slimline dishwashers, freestanding models tend to be the most popular choice. They do not need to be fitted into a cabinet space, which makes them easier to install and more versatile with regards to positioning in the kitchen. Additionally, these models tend to cost less, and they are easier to take with you if you move.
