Here Are The Top 10 Best 18-inch Dishwashers 2017


Alphachooser's list of the newest 18-inch dishwashers includes only dishwashers that obey to these criteria:

  • 18-Inch dishwashers are, for the vast majority, built-in models, but compact-enough for small kitchens
  • The narrow range we require to consider a model as an 18-inch dishwasher is between 17.5 and 18.5 inches
  • Expect a feature set slightly less impressive than on full-fledged dishwashers, but some 18-inch stainless-steel dishwashers still manage to have fitted many of the latest perks and scrubbing technologies associated with wide models

GE ZBD1850NII

GE ZBD1850NII

Avg. rating (3 reviews)
The ZBD1850NII curiously sports one of the longest "short cycle" we have seen with its 85-minute (almost an hour and a half) ExpressWash -- not so express to us, considering how many dishwashers sport a 30-minute cycle!.
  • Max noise level: 60 dBA
GE ZBD1870NSS

GE ZBD1870NSS

Avg. rating (3 reviews)
