Ever wondered what factors to consider before purchasing the perfect dishwasher? Let Adelaide Appliance Gallery help you out!

In this day and age, it’s not that difficult to get information on a product that you’re looking to buy. Just type it into your browser’s search bar and you’ll get tons of information, from the product manual to countless reviews. Truth be told, it can be a very time consuming to actually go through all of this information, so we’ve done the grunt work for you with this comprehensive guide for getting the perfect dishwasher for your Adelaide home.

1. Price

Finding the perfect dishwasher for your Adelaide home is not as easy as picking out the cheapest dishwasher that’s currently on offer. However, the price can be a determining factor when deciding among the wide variety of dishwashers you’re going to buy.

Before going ahead and shelling out money for your perfect dishwasher, why don’t you set a cap on the amount that you’re willing to spend on your perfect dishwasher? By doing so, you can immediately eliminate a bunch of choices.

At Adelaide Appliance Gallery, we encourage smart and mindful shopping. We suggest that you create a three-level budget that you can work with and let our specialists, in-store and online, help you choose from the wonderful dishwashers that we currently have for sale.

2. Size

Next to your budget is to consider the size that you are looking for. Generally, the price of a dishwasher is closely tied up to the capacity that you’re looking to buy. Of course, the bigger the capacity, the pricier it will be.

Knowing how big your ideal and perfect dishwasher will make it easier for you to trim down from your choices. Also, make sure that you’re buying the right size for your home in terms of the space where you are putting it and the frequency that your family will be using this.

If you are a large family then, you might try looking at dishwashers that have a large capacity and one that can get the job done fast.

As friends of Mother Earth, we are also putting energy and water consumption down as one of the many factors that you have to consider before buying the perfect dishwasher.

Newer models (especially the ones on the Adelaide Appliance Gallery website) have been tested for their energy and water consumption by different organizations. These dishwashers are certified to consume fewer resources to carry out their processes.

Many of the dishwashers currently available on the website and in-store are considered to be advanced and top-of-the-line brands and makes. These brands also looked into adding energy and water-saving feature to also become environmentally-responsible.

4. Design/Aesthetics and Installation Type

Who wouldn’t want aesthetically-pleasing objects? We’re pretty sure that there is a small percentage of consumers who purchase products completely based on how it looks.

The physical design or, how the millennial generation refers to as ‘aesthetics’ is part of the list because, if you have spent money on building a nice kitchen then you obviously want your perfect dishwasher to complement your design.

Imagine an immaculate-looking kitchen with the main colours are white, cream, and a toned-down grey. Everything looks so modern and crisp, from the sink to the countertops, and all of a sudden a bulging, bright orange, retro-looking dishwasher. An eyesore!

At the Adelaide Appliance Gallery, we have dishwashers that are completely inconspicuous because we also care about your kitchen interiors. In fact, we have five different installation types to suit your kitchen’s aesthetic needs:
Built-under Dishwasher – designed to fit right under your kitchen’s cabinetry that won’t sacrifice your kitchen’s over-all looks. This design is more or less permanent and can either be fully-integrated or semi-integrated.

Fully-integrated Dishwasher is designed to look totally seamless. So seamless nobody will know that you have a dishwasher installed. With a fully-integrated dishwasher, the buttons are conveniently located at the top of the door and can only be accessed once you open the dishwasher.
