With modern technology and busy schedules, dishwashers have become a staple appliance in many kitchens because of their convenience and exceptional features. Not only do dishwashers limit the number of dishes you have to wash by hand, but they also make cleaning up in the kitchen a breeze. They take one less thing off your plate (while cleaning your plate, too)! Many dishwashers on the market offer similar features, so shopping for a dishwasher can be a bit of a daunting task. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current dishwasher or add a dishwasher to your space, you should know what to look for in a dishwasher. It’s not every day you buy a new appliance so it may leave you wondering how do you pick a new dishwasher? Optimize your experience and find a dishwasher with these key features!


What to Look For in a Dishwasher

Interior Lighting

Light up all aspects of your life with premium white LED interior lighting in your dishwasher! Lighting on the inside of your dishwasher is not only luxurious, but it is practical. Interior lights allow for better visibility into your dishwasher. No more squinting and searching to find a specific dish; the lighting in your dishwasher allows you to better see what is in your appliance. The illuminated interior makes loading and unloading a piece of cake. The Sharp SDW6747GS comes equipped with two premium interior white LED lights – perfect for seeing those dishes shine!

Responsive Washing Cycles

Life is full of making decisions and when it comes to cleaning decisions, they should be quick and stress-free. Choose a dishwasher that will make day-to-day tasks easier. Take the guesswork out of cleaning with the assistance of smart, soil sensors. Soil Sensors in your dishwasher will automatically optimize your washing cycles. With the help of Sharp‘s Power Wash feature in the SWD6757ES, the third sprayer offers extra scrubbing power for your most soiled pots and pans. Your hands will thank you for reducing the number of cookware in need of hand-scrubbing.

Adjustable Racks

Adjustable racks in a dishwasher allow for a more flexible cleaning experience. Are you looking to clean a large casserole dish or tall stemware? Manually raise or lower the upper rack in your Sharp Dishwasher to accommodate your dishes! A dishwasher with a third rack offers additional convenience. The adjustable third rack is ideal for flatware and serving instruments such as spatulas and other baking utensils. Locate and fit all your cookware with the help of adjustable racks.

Exterior Finish

Matching kitchen appliances give the space a more cohesive and sleek look. If you are slowly upgrading your space, introduce stainless steel appliances into your kitchen. Dishwashers with a stainless steel finish are easy to clean and complement other stainless steel appliances. The stainless steel finish of dishwashers offers a sleek, timeless look to instantly elevate any kitchen design. The exterior finish of your dishwasher should shine like the clean dishes inside of it, and what better way to shine than with the most desirable finish of them all – stainless steel.
