You can step up to a pricier Miele if you want those extras.(Also, make sure Miele has service technicians in your area.) But this model could be the best overall value for a dishwasher with all the useful features.When we talk about the 300 Series, we mean the new models that came out in 2017, with an “M” or an “8” somewhere in the full model number.There are 17 variants of the new 300 Series, and they should all perform identically.That’s why we think the new Bosch 300 Series SHEM63W55N is the best dishwasher for most people right now.With a third rack and quiet performance, the reliable, efficient, effective Bosch 300 Series SHEM63W55N works like a premium dishwasher, but sells for a midrange price.I’ve interviewed a handful of experts from around the industry, including: I’ve also read most of the dishwasher reviews from the major editorial testing houses in the US, including Consumer Reports (subscription required), Reviewed.com, CNET, and Good Housekeeping, as well as countless emails, comments, tweets, message board posts, and user reviews from our readers and pretty much anyone else who cared enough to weigh in on dishwashers.
But overall, we think this is the dishwasher that will make the most people the happiest.
It has a stainless steel tub, which helps it run quieter and dry better than others at this price (which often have plastic tubs).
It also feels sturdier, is backed by one of the better warranties in the industry, and has thousands of reviews over many years to suggest that it’s reliable.
The Kitchen Aid KDTM354ESS is another easy-to-load, quiet dishwasher, with a few key differences from our main pick.
Its heat-dry option is better at drying plastic items, and some people find that its racks are better at holding deep cereal bowls.
