Dishwashers A high-quality dishwasher is one of the best investments you can make for your home. It not only saves you the time and stress of washing dishes by hand, but it also helps conserve energy and water, and it lowers your utility bill in the process.
There are still hundreds of dishwasher options available, and sifting through them is about as tedious as tackling a pile of dirty dishes. To save you the time and effort, we’ve done the research for you to find the most reliable dishwasher models available today.
If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, the Bosch 300 Series won’t disappoint. Based on our evaluation, Bosch is one of the most reliable brands of dishwashers. In fact, Yale Appliance found that only an average of 10% of Bosch dishwashers sold throughout 2015 and 2019 needed service in the first year of ownership.
This Bosch dishwasher is well-designed and it’ll look great in any kitchen. If you don’t want curious kids fussing with its outer control panel, you also have the choice of pocket-handle or bar-handle variants. All 300 Series models are spacious, quiet, and energy-efficient, and offer plenty of cycles.
If you have a big family or entertain often, you’ll appreciate its convenient V-shaped third rack, which offers up to 30% more capacity than other dishwashers. Bosch has more expensive models — the 500 Series and 800 Series — which add a more flexible third rack setup, and lower sound ratings, but we think the 300 Series will suffice for most families.

Best High-End Dishwasher
The Bosch 800 Series (SHPM78Z55N) is one of the first dishwashers in the U.S. that harnesses the power of zeolite. This is a mineral that stores heat and absorbs water, which makes it an excellent aid to extract moisture from your dishwasher and speed the drying process. The tech has been used in high-end Thermador dishwashers priced as high as $1,500, while this dishwasher starts at a more reasonable asking price of about $1,000.
Bosch calls the tech CrystalDry, and its 800 Series models have a cavity at the backside of the dishwasher that stows the zeolite in a pebble-like form. Jonathan Chan, the lab manager at Reviewed.com, said the dishwasher is a “major step forward” and that it even dries stubborn plastics well.
Best Feature Set and Design
This KitchenAid dishwasher is an easy-to-load, effective cleaner that does a great job at removing debris and stains from dishes. Our colleagues at Good Housekeeping tested the dishwasher in-house and said it left their greasy frying pan and oatmeal-coated saucepan nearly spotless.
The dishwasher — which has room for 15 place settings — is packed with a stainless steel tub, nice extras like a dedicated knife holder, and a convenient removable utensil basket. However it lacks a third rack like the Bosch 300 Series, our current top pick.
