Before remodeling your kitchen, it is important that all of the design elements look the way you want them to, and that the appliances are up to date and functional. A kitchen which is mainly white would look coordinated with a white dishwasher, and a kitchen with other stainless steel appliances would naturally look best with a stainless steel dishwasher. Many stainless steel dishwashers can now be covered with facing that matches the cabinetry in the kitchen, so the dishwasher remains slightly hidden and camouflaged. Color and design are just as important as function and price.
If you are remodeling your kitchen, there is no better time to incorporate Energy Star products into your home to save energy. Energy star dishwashers use at least 40% less energy than the average dishwasher, which is good for the environment and also for your wallet.
For the kitchen that needs a stainless steel dishwasher, a great choice is the 24″ Tall Tub Built In Dishwasher from LG. The dishwasher comes with a built in food disposer, so you can forgo the excessive rinsing of dishes before they are put in the dishwasher. The LG not only cleans the dishes thoroughly, but dries them as well, so the dishes are ready to put away as soon as the cycle is done. This dishwasher cuts out pre rinsing and dish drying. LoDecibel operation also means that the dishwasher runs with much less noise for a quiet kitchen.
Another great stainless steel dishwasher is the Bosch SHX98M09UC. This dishwasher is so quiet that it is hard to notice that there is any appliance running at all. This dishwasher also dries the dishes, however it does not use up more energy for a dry cycle. This Bosch dishwasher uses recycled energy from the dish wash cycle to dry the dishes, making this dishwasher very energy efficient. This Bosch dishwasher is sleekly designed, one of the sleeker features being that the controls for the dishwasher are located on the top of the dishwasher door, so all of the buttons are hidden from view when the dishwasher door is closed. The lack of a control panel on the front of the door makes this design one of the best dishwashers fronts to apply cabinetry fronts to.
