Features and technology on new dishwashers

Third racks

A few years ago having a third rack on a dishwasher wasn’t something you saw every day, but many of the latest models have third top racks for extra long flatware or utensils. That rack is really helpful when your dishwasher is already loaded.

Soil sensors

You shouldn’t have to use the same amount of water and energy for dishes that are lightly soiled compared to those that are heavily soiled. The latest dishwasher technology includes soil sensors to adjust your cycle according to the soil level on the dishes.

Wash zones

You may never have heard of wash zones before you try them on your new dishwasher, but once you do you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. A wash zone splits your dishwasher into areas that you can turn on for heavily soiled items. The zone will target a soiled pot or pan so you’re sure it will be clean.

Debris filters

Some models of new dishwasher come with a heavy duty food grinder that will take whatever food scrapes are left on your plates and pulverize them so they flow easily down the drain.

Wash cycles

The latest dishwashers have cycles beyond light, normal, and heavy. You can now find express cycles that will wash your dishes in 30 minutes or sanitize cycles that hit high water heat to thoroughly disinfect your dishes.

If your dishwasher is so loud you have to leave the room to run it, you’ll love the newest dishwashers. They run so quietly you won’t even be sure they’re turned on unless you look at the panel.

Energy savings

When you want to save energy running your appliances, choose an Energy Star rated dishwasher. These dishwashers will add less to your energy bill while saving water, and you may find that your city or town also offers you a rebate when purchasing one.

Smart features

Choose a dishwasher with smart features and you’ll be able to connect it to Wi-Fi. Once connected, you can use the brand’s app to download new dishwasher cycles or access smart diagnostic features when something goes wrong.

There are so many great features on the latest dishwashers, you’ll have a hard time choosing just one. Check out all the brands of dishwasher you can find on Best Buy and bring home the right dishwasher for you.
