Stainless steel used to be a kitchen appliance trend. The quality and attractiveness people discovered when using these appliances turned a trend into a staple. Most people think of stainless steel refrigerators when envisioning a kitchen with metal accessories. A stainless steel dishwasher is the perfect way to round out your kitchen's interior concept and upgrade an old appliance.
Standard dishwashers come with two dish racks. For households that produce a lot of dirty dishes, whether it's because you do a lot of cooking or have a lot of people, a third rack is often necessary. The third rack usually sits on the very top and offers a small shelf of extra space, perfect for laying down cutlery when you overfill the silverware basket.
Sometimes the silverware basket sits in the door, though these models tend to offer less space for silverware. The trade-off is more space in the racks for bigger items like plates, cups, pots, and pans. While you're examining the baskets and the racks, check for adjustable configurations.
How dirty do your dishes get? We've all accidentally baked cheese onto something, and it's horrifying trying to get off later. A stainless steel dishwasher with wash technology like a steam cycle or a heavy-duty wash is best for those who end up with seriously messy dishes.
Finally, explore which brands and models offer sound-proofing. The dishwasher isn't exactly quiet, so some extra layers in the appliance's construction can do wonders to offer a quieter cycle. Of course, if you live in a noisy household, the sound your dishwasher makes won't be as much of a concern, and you can focus your budget on other accessories instead.
