Dishwashers that really do the job

Performance is the single most discussed factor in user opinions on dishwashers. Consumers are clearly fed up with spending hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars on a dishwasher and ending up with almost-clean, dripping wet dishes. Buzzrake examined numerous user opinions to find out which dishwashers you can count on to do their job well. The vast majority of opinions showed that the most efficient dishwashers are the standard-sized models. Users report that the smaller portable and countertop units don't perform nearly as well. In addition, integrated models receive significantly higher performance scores than their full-console counterparts on average. Opinions also show that the most efficient dishwashers are not necessarily the most expensive models, but they aren't budget-priced either: the MSRPs of the leading products average at around $720, which is within the medium price range. When it comes to brands, the clear winners are LG and GE, with 2 models each on the list of 15 Most Efficient Dishwashers. However, Danby dishwashers are a big no-no if performance really matters to you.
