Keep reading to learn more about our choices for the best dishwashers of 2024. One of our dishwasher recommendations is bound to take your kitchen cleaning to the next level.

Best Overall Dishwasher

The first product on our list of the best dishwashers of 2024 is our overall top pick out of our wide selection: the Bosch Benchmark Series 24-inch dishwasher. This reliable appliance features an excellent PrecisionWash® performance, aided by a built-in PowerControl™ spray arm. This technology targets the dirtiest dishes in your load and provides a deeper clean, no matter what rack your plates and silverware are on. Feel free to skip the pre-rinsing and hand washing. To match the washing capabilities, Bosch incorporated a patented CrystalDry™ technology. This feature transforms the existing moisture from the wash into heat up to 176°F, ultimately getting your dishes 60% drier than usual. This is especially helpful for plastic dinnerware. Within the model is an extremely sturdy EasyGlide™ Plus rack system, which uses premium ball-bearing wheels in order to provide the smoothest gliding movement. This way, loading and unloading your appliance will be easier than ever. All of the washing and drying this Bosch can do is ENERGY STAR® certified to be energy efficient and it's also extraordinarily quiet. The 38 dBA sound level makes this dishwasher Bosch's quietest model yet.

While you can depend on all of our best dishwashers of 2024 picks, the model we think is the most reliable is the Bosch 500 Series 24-inch pocket handle dishwasher. It also happens to be one of the top sellers at Abt. This appliance features an extra large 16-place setting capacity and a stainless steel tub that's very easy to clean and maintain. These 16 place settings can fit easily into the dishwasher thanks to the RackMatic™ Adjustable Upper Rack. This rack can take on up to nine separate rack positions and three different heights to accommodate taller items like wine glasses or wider items like pots and pans. The interior of the dishwasher has intelligent sensors that are built to monitor food particles in the water so it can automatically adjust the cycle for the best clean possible. It also offers a Sanitize option that increases the final rinse temperature so the heat can kill more bacteria and your dishes can remain hygienic. The appliance also has powerful drying capabilities. The AutoAir™ feature will automatically release the door once the cycle is over so 1) moisture can escape and 2) fresh air can be let in. This allows your dinnerware to get 40% drier. If that's not enough, this Bosch model also has an Extra Dry option. The operation stays at a whisper-quiet 44 dBA and it's also ENERGY STAR® rated for environmentally friendly efficiency.

If you're looking for an appliance that delivers luxury performance, the next model in our best dishwashers of 2024 is our high-end choice: the Bosch 800 Series 24" dishwasher. One of the perks of this dishwasher unit is its smart features. The exclusive 24/7 Overflow Protection System will monitor your appliance, no matter if it's on or off, to detect when water levels get too high. If this occurs, the water will automatically get drained and the inlet will close. The Smart Cycle will help you find the best washing program for each specific load and the dishwasher is also compatible with Home Connect®. The Bosch app allows you to connect compatible appliances and control them all from your smartphone. Some of this model's features are similar to previous Bosch models mentioned above. This unit is ENERGY STAR® certified, has a quiet 42 dBA performance, can hold 16 place settings and uses patented CrystalDry™ technology to ensure each dish is cabinet-ready when you open the door. It also holds a Flexible 3rd Rack, which uses adjustable tines and expandable wings to fit deeper or more bulky kitchen items. If you have children touching things around your kitchen or you're seeking a lower maintenance cleaning routine, one of the highlights of this Bosch model is the anti-fingerprint stainless steel finish. This surface will keep your appliance looking sleek and seamless within your home aesthetic.

If you're looking for an above-average washing performance but aren't ready to invest in a top-of-the-line model just yet, the Bosch 300 Series 24-Inch Recessed Handle Dishwasher is a great choice from our best dishwashers of 2024. This reliable unit shares plenty of similarities with other Bosch machines we've discussed, including RackMatic® racks, PrecisionWash®, the 24/7 Overflow Protection System® and Home Connect® compatibility. While Overflow Protection kicks in when there's an active leak, this dishwasher also has AquaStop®, which prevents water leaks beforehand by automatically closing the water inlets and activating the drain pump. When it comes to drying your dishes after the cycle, the Bosch 300 Series uses an energy-efficient closed-drying system called PureDry®. Rather than pull outside air into the dishwasher, PureDry® gently whisks excess moisture away from the dishes as they cool off. This appliance comes in three different finishes: black, stainless steel and white. If you opt for the stainless steel finish, you can enjoy anti-fingerprint protection that prevents dirt and smudges from ruining the appearance of your kitchen. This Bosch model has the capacity for 16 place settings and also offers a quiet performance at 46 dBA.

If you're going to pay that full tag price for an appliance, you want to know you're getting the utmost function and benefit from it. It's often referred to as getting a "bang for your buck". Out of the best dishwashers of 2024 we've chosen, the KitchenAid 24" PrintShield stainless steel dishwasher is a top contender in this category. This model features a ProWash™ Cycle, which uses sensors to measure the soil levels in your unit throughout the cycle. Doing this helps the appliance adjust the water temperature and wash time as needed for each unique load, no matter how light or messy they are. While a cycle like Express Wash cleans your plates and silverware much faster, the Sani-Rinse option adds a high-heat final rinse to your cycle to help eliminate 99.999% of food soil bacteria. The dishwasher also has a Triple Filtration System that uses three different levels of filtration to remove food particles throughout the washing and rinsing cycles. The adjustable middle rack gives this dishwasher more flexibility to wash taller, larger items like stand mixer bowls, platters, blender jars and pitchers. The third level utensil rack, in contrast, offers extra space for long, flat items like spatulas, silverware and serving utensils. Both of these racks are fairly easy to load and unload too, thanks to the SatinGlide® rails that provide the smoothest movement. The 39dB sound rating is the quietest from KitchenAid dishwashers so far and the PrintShield™ finish on the exterior resists fingerprints and smudges.

While some customers have to work within a tighter budget, that doesn't mean they have to sacrifice the quality of their appliances. The Whirlpool 24" Built-In Stainless Steel Dishwasher, the budget-friendly option from our best dishwashers of 2024, is proof of this. This unit offers a high-quality performance, thanks to the Triple Filtration Wash System. The dishwasher uses a micro-fine filter to catch small soils between wash stages, a fine filter to catch medium soils, and a coarse filter to catch large soils. It also provides a variety of cycles fit to almost any load. Programs like Extended Soak, Boost or High-Temperature Wash will allow you to skip soaking and scrubbing your dishes beforehand by targeting tough messes and dissolving stubborn stuck-on food, grease and grime for you. There's even a Sani-Rinse option that heats the final round of water to 155°F so up to 99.999% of food soil bacteria can be eliminated. Put 12 place settings inside and enjoy the luxury of three 5-inch cup racks too. These racks can hold six additional small bowls or cups, so you can free up room on the shelves below. Not using the racks? No problem. Just fold them down when you don't need the space.

If you're working with a smaller kitchen space and need something more compact, the GE Profile 18" stainless steel top control dishwasher is the ideal option for you out of our best dishwashers of 2024. This model uses a three-level wash and powerful wash arms to produce the cleanest, dinner-ready dishes. To ensure each load is getting exactly the cycle it needs, the unit can tap into Autosense technology. Autosense uses a beam of light to measure the water temperature and the soil levels so it can adjust the wash program as needed. Even if your dishes are crusted over with meal scraps, the Piranha™ hard food disposer will take care of every inch. The stainless steel blade of the disposer rotates at 3600 RPM to pulverize all food particles so larger particles don't clog the wash arms. This compact dishwasher also has an NSF Certified Sanitize option that kills 99.999% of bacteria with a high-temperature rinse. This GE model is ENERGY STAR® qualified and ADA-compliant, ideal for those with physical limitations. It offers low-profile installation and is great for 34" tall countertops. Shop for your very own GE dishwasher in three finishes too: black, stainless steel and white.

While an 18-inch dishwasher is one option for those with smaller kitchen spaces, portable dishwashers are another option. Portable dishwashers are most convenient for those who may not be living in their forever home, since you can move the appliance as you need. Out of all the best dishwashers of 2024, our pick for portability is the GE 24" stainless steel portable dishwasher. This highly-rated dishwasher model is one of our top sellers. It offers a relatively large capacity and quiet performance for a portable unit, with room to fit 12 place settings and a 54 dBA rating. All 12 place settings will be tackled by the same three-level wash, Piranha™ hard food disposer, Autosense cycle and Sanitize option as the previous GE model above. Not sure if a portable dishwasher is the right investment for you? We recommend this GE model to a variety of customers, including those renting who can't modify plumbing, those who live in an RV or trailer and those who wish to continue saving up for a more permanent washing solution.
