2. Whirlpool WSIO 3O23 PFE X
Economical and powerful dishwasher.
Meet the Whirlpool WSIO 3O23 PFE X, a device with amazing energy efficiency (Energy Rating A++), outstanding capacity (up to 10 sets) and unrivaled cleaning performance.
One of my favorite features is PowerClean, a turbo boost program that literally sucks grease out of dishes. Plus, it’s one of the quietest machines on the market, even if it’s not hidden behind a furniture door.
The list of main functions includes an intensive program for heavily soiled dishes and an express program (quick cycle). A nice addition will be a “delicate” program for washing fragile dishes, an economical program for lightly soiled dishes and a pre-soak mode.
Pros and cons
No noise, capacity
3. LEX PM 4573 B with 7 washing modes
The LEX brand has introduced an updated version of the dishwasher with enhanced functionality, still maintaining one of the longest warranties on the market — 36.6 months.
The A++ energy class machine has low water consumption and good capacity.
The arsenal contains all the necessary set of practical functions (half load, rinse, intensive mode), as well as a new, quite popular, but rare in this price category, “automatic wash” mode. An internal sensor monitors the contamination of the water at the drain, and the machine continues to wash the dishes until it is perfectly clean.
Seven programs and a half load mode let you save time that you can spend on your favorite activities.

6. Candy CDCP 6/E
Another small car for studio apartments.
The capacity of this machine is small — only six sets of dishes fit in the chamber, but this is quite enough for a small family. But there are a decent number of operating modes: intensive wash (for dishes with serious dirt), daily wash, program for fragile items, quick wash and economical wash. In addition, a water saving mode and dirty dishes are supported. But this model does not provide a quick rinse.
Pros and cons

No quick rinse

It’s important to note that the Indesit DFP 27B+96 Z has everything you need to be your perfect companion: the machine is easy to load and the additional sink option allows you to remove the top basket so you can fit extra large items in it.

7. Hotpoint-Ariston HSFO 3T223W
A narrow dishwasher that stands out for its high performance and flexibility.
Although the Hotpoint-Ariston HSFO 3T223 W is a narrow model, it does not lose the features of the company’s standard, full-size (60 cm) models. That’s why you get an economical A++ energy rating, as well as nine washing programs and options. Loading is very easy and the model itself is very functional: the top rack is height adjustable, there are folding tines for small plates, and the bottom rack has foldable pot supports.
A key feature is the 3D jet technology that sprays water into the machine to effectively clean your dishes. A minor issue is that the dishes could be drier after touch drying. However, there is an additional feature that uses a little more energy but leaves dishes drip-free.
Pros and cons
Suitable for small apartments, all necessary programs
Not the best drying
8. Bosch SKS62E22
Compact option for a small apartment.

And the activation of the VarioSpeed mode allows you to significantly reduce the duration of any program without losing the quality of the result.
Pros and cons
Compact, good drying
9. Bosch SMS44GI00R
For large containers.
The main distinguishing feature is that the machine automatically adjusts the hardness of the water, preventing this indicator from falling below pH 5.5. During the washing process, water circulates through 5 levels — this technology provides good savings. The water flow rate and pressure are also automatically adjusted. Special sensors determine the amount of dishes in the washing chamber, after which the processor calculates the required amount of water, detergent and electricity.

Excellent dishwashing and drying performance, high chamber performance
Do not leave the door open after use

How to choose a dishwasher
Most dishwashers are built-in models. This means that they are designed to be placed under the countertop next to your cabinets. These dishwashers are usually standard sized, but we recommend that you check the dishwasher’s dimensions and cutout space before purchasing a model.
Other dishwashers are freestanding or portable. They attach to your faucet and drain into the sink. If there is not enough space, installing an additional countertop would be an ideal option. So if you are single, this might be an acceptable compromise.
Many dishwashers include a device called a turbidity sensor that detects food from your dishes in the wash water. These models can tell when your dishes are clean: if the water is clean, all dirt and food has been removed. These machines are preferred as they are more efficient and can wash lightly soiled dishes faster.
A noisy dishwasher can be very distracting, so look for quiet models. Most models come with a noise rating indicating the amount of sound they produced when tested. The lower this number (in decibels), the quieter they are. However, remember that dishwashers must be properly installed to be quiet, with noise reduction that covers them in place.
It’s quite difficult to measure how many dishes a dishwasher can hold, as it depends on the type of dishes you put in the machine. Most manufacturers offer a number of kits. It indicates how many sets of dishes can fit inside. One set consists of dinner plate, dessert plate, glass, soup bowl, cup and saucer, and cutlery. A large dishwasher can hold 15 or more sets, while a compact dishwasher can hold seven or eight.
All dishwashers hold dishes with racks that slide out when loading and unloading. It is important to find out how easily these legs extend when the machine is fully loaded, as well as whether they are adjustable. With a good dishwasher, you can move the racks up and down to accommodate large dishes.
Another useful feature is the adjustable prongs that lift and hold the dishes in place. Some dishwashers have fold-out tines to make it easier to fit large dishes.
