1. SHE65T55UC 500 24" Stainless Steel Semi-Integrated Dishwasher - Energy Star

SHE65T55UC 500 24 Inches Stainless Steel Semi-Integrated Dishwasher by Bosch Review

by Bosch

Features:

  • Four different cycles: Auto, Eco, Normal, and Express to suit everybody’s needs.
  • It uses less water: just 2.8 gallons of water for an express cycle makes this dishwater one of the most water-saving machines ever built.
  • AquaStop Leak Protection is a safety system that will always prevent water from leaking even when the machine is off.
  • Load Size Sensor detects the actual amount of dishes you put in and determines wash temperature automatically.
  • Three different sized racks can fit everything, even the odd shaped dishes and utensils.
  • Two fold-down additional adjustable shelves are there so you can fit in taller items.
  • check
    10 year warranty on major components plus 3 or 2 year optional warranty for minor components.
  • check
     They usually have a great deal and sometimes even offer free shipping

Pros

  • One of the most quiet dishwashers available on the market. It really makes no sound at all, it’s like a ninja of the dishwashing world.
  • AquaStop system greatly improves domestic safety, and the push buttons make it more robust against accidental damage and bumps.
  • check
    Energy Star certification makes this dishwasher great because you'll save money on your monthly bills… and the environment at the same time.

Cons

  • The "Auto Power Off" function shuts off the “CLEAN” light after a short while, making it difficult to see if the machine had completed its cycle, especially if you’re not sure if someone else turned it on when you weren’t watching.

2. 800 Series SHX68T55UC Fully Integrated Built-in Dishwasher 24" in Stainless Steel

800 Series SHX68T55UC Fully Integrated Built-in Dishwasher 24 Inches by Bosch Review

by Bosch

Features:

  • The Bosh 800 series is similar to the 500 series, so it has many of the same great features of that model, albeit at a somewhat more expensive price and without a heating element.
  • It has flatware baskets with lids to provide individual slots for many smaller utensil preventing them from nesting up or slipping through the cracks.
  • It features a fully automated sensor that finely adjusts water usage and cycle time to the actual amount of soil on the dishes.
  • Highly customizable machine: with 6 wash cycles, 5 different options, and a delay start feature to optimally plan your washing cycles.

Pros

  • Incredibly large load – even up to double than its competitors. Spray arms also allow for effective cleaning in every section of the 3 racks, avoiding “false loads” with blind spots that cannot be reached by water.
  • Very efficient filter that doesn’t clog as easily as in other dishwashers.
  • check
    Clean, energy-saving, quiet dishwasher, with great warranty. It’s definitely one of the most sturdy and reliable models available.

Cons

  • Can be quite slow, often takes as long as 2 hours (or more) to complete a cycle, especially if fully loaded.
LDF8764ST Fully Integrated Dishwasher by LG Review

by LG

Features:

  • A good overall dishwasher, 6 wash cycles and an integrated dry cycle (optional).
  • Features the famous LG's patented TrueSteam system that saves you from the annoying pre-cleaning cycle.
  • check
    Steam technology is great to clean really stubborn food remains and stains.
  • An easy to use LED digital display shows more information, including wash-cycle time remaining, allowing for proper planning and monitoring of cycle efficiency.
  • The EasyRack system allows for easy loading, optimal cleaning performance, and its easy to use.
  • check
    The Vario wash is a truly unique feature that allows for a diversified washing intensity in the upper and lower racks, so you can wash different items (i.e. fine glassware and steel pots) in the same load.

Pros

  • The TrueSteam can both clean very fragile or precious items like porcelain, but it’s also very efficient for heavy-duty cleaning like pans.
  • Automatic sensors, delayed start function and energy saving technologies make the LG dishwater one of the most economic models on the market in terms of energy bills and water usage.
  • check
    A very quiet (just 44db, one of the quieter in the market) and efficient model with many fully customizable options.

Cons

  • The lack of a food disposer and a water softener will shorten the overall life cycle of this dishwasher.

by Blomberg

  • An innovative electronic pump called Brushless DC Motor allows for better energy savings, and really quick cleaning.
  • Time delay can be set up to 9.5 hours.
  • check
    Efficient sensor system technology monitors turbidity after each wash cycle to save up water used, synergizing with the water filtration system.
  • The 14 place setting wash capacity and the powerful pumping system make this dishwater one the best in terms of performance.
  • The concealed flow allows plastic dishware to be placed on top and bottom racks without damage during cleaning.

Pros

  • The pump motor, half load function, sensor technology and the option to set time delay up to 9.5 hours, make this model one of the most energy-efficient in the market.
  • Hidden control panels to prevent children from messing up with it.
  • check
    A built-in water softener coupled with a very efficient filtration system ensure the circulation of the cleanest water only. This will increase the overall durability of this machine.

Cons

  • Can be a little noisy, especially at night, as vibration may make plates and silverware clank and bang.

  1. Hey there! What would you recommend for a built-in dishwasher in the $700-$1200 price range, if I definitely want bottle jets, a third rack, and sprayers strong enough to get off some seriously dried-on food chunks? Is GE the only brand that offers bottle jets? Thanks!!
