Shopping Guide: Dishwashers
Whether you're looking to replace all of the appliances in your kitchen, or just your dishwasher, there have been many changes in technology that can help ensure that the appliance you choose is perfect for your home.
This dishwasher guide will take you through the different types and sizes of GE dishwashers available, including capacity; as well as, the latest features that can help save you time and money in the kitchen.
Type & Size of Dishwasher
There are two main areas of focus that can quickly help you narrow down your decision when looking into buying a new dishwasher – the type (or style) of dishwasher and the size.
Odds are that you probably already know whether you need a built-in dishwasher or portable dishwasher, but there are different sizes that can fit in your kitchen; for example, an under the sink dishwasher is made for smaller kitchens, and even though it holds up to 10 dish sets, it may not be quite big enough for a larger family or someone that prides themselves on cooking nightly meals.
Built-In Dishwasher 24″
This is the most common type of GE dishwasher and comfortably fits between cabinets and underneath the counter. These dishwashers can hold up to 16 place settings.
Built-In Dishwasher 18″
This 18″ built-in GE dishwasher is a great option for smaller spaces or as a second dishwasher in a basement or bar area. These dishwashers can hold up to 10 place settings.
Portable Dishwasher 24″
Portable dishwashers are designed for spaces where built-in dishwasher installation is a problem. These models have finished sides and top, so they can be placed separate from your counter and cabinets. They can also be built-in at a later time.
Under Sink Dishwasher 24″
GE offers dishwashers designed to be installed under the sink, with a special tub to allow for sink plumbing. Some models can also be installed beneath a cooktop. These dishwashers can hold up to 10 place settings.
For 7 consecutive years, GE has been awarded the Sustained Excellence Award for our commitment to creating appliances and lighting products that are more energy efficient – helping to reduce your energy bill and protect the environment. By replacing a dishwasher manufactured before 1994 with an ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwasher, you can save $40 a year on your utility bills*. Replace one of these old dishwashers with ENERGY STAR and save money to pay for dishwasher detergent all year. The new, ENERGY STAR qualified dishwasher will save, on average, 1200 gallons of water over its lifetime.See all ENERGY STAR Qualified Dishwashers
