This year, we’re all spending more time at home. Whether you’re working from home, social distancing with family, or cooking for the kids, you might begin to notice things about your house that need to be upgraded such as a squeaky ceiling fan, an uncomfortable sofa, or perhaps, a dishwasher on the fritz.
Dishwasher demand is at an all-time high. More families are cooking at home. With no school lunches, limited restaurant openings, and daycares closed, more meals at home means your dishwasher is working harder than ever before. We’re finding that some big-name brands are experiencing supply shortages and cannot meet the unexpected spike in demand.
If you’re looking for a new dishwasher, there are many brands to choose from. Most shoppers turn to dishwasher ratings only to be more confused by their research. Sometimes the best price dishwashers are built well, have all the greatest features, but a lesser-known brand name. My goal was to focus on some great independent brands not available at big box stores. The purpose of this article is to showcase five fantastic dishwasher brands that offer all the latest features. On this list, you will find three rack dishwashers, quiet dishwashers, and even drawer dishwashers.
