When you set out to buy a hefty, pricey appliance, you first consult your family and friends, right?
This time there's no need, as Buzzrake has collected and analyzed thousands of online opinions on dishwashers to determine which models users love the most. Here's what we found out:
- The collected opinions show that the best-liked dishwashers are the ones with the simple, built-in designs - no bells and whistles. Among these units, the larger models (with capacities of 14-16 place settings) receive higher customer satisfaction scores.
- Evidently, the most popular brands are LG and GE. Danby and Frigidaire receive the lowest customer satisfaction ratings.
- Users do not have preference for console type (hidden or on the front): the list of the top rated dishwashers is a mix of full-console and fully integrated units, with no apparent winner among these two styles.
- Most of the top rated models are also Energy Star certified. In general, buying Energy Star appliances can significantly reduce your electricity bill. Since dishwashers are so energy consuming, this factor is very important to users.
