USA: Dishwashers: Dishwasher Manufacturers
The main difference between expensive dishwashers and cheaper models is the robustness of construction. More expensive dishwashers will also have heavier insulation, leading to quieter operation and greater energy efficiency. Some dishwashers heat water to the required temperature; others use hot water from the house supply. The advantage of having heating within the dishwasher is that you can be sure the temperature has been brought up to the right level - and the key to getting clean dishes is using very hot water.
Some dishwasher incorporate a built-in food disposer. This grinds up small food particles and flushes them away. In addition to conventional built-in dishwashers, under-sink and in-sink dishwashers are available.
