Whether you’re good enough to be on Master Chef - or you can barely boil an egg - we’ve got plenty of advice on choosing the right kitchen appliance. Use the drop-down menu on the left to get some handy tips.
Choosing a dishwasher: a quick guide to size
The standard size dishwasher is 600mm wide x 600mm deep, and standard bench height. Ask in-store about new "tall" models that still fit under-bench but give extra height.
100% Appliances also stock narrow models that are 45cm wide for smaller kitchens; as well as single dishdrawers and bench top models that are great for studio apartments or kitchenettes.
Dishwasher decisions: standard format or dish drawer?
This is a personal preference. The advantages of a double dishdrawer are that you can wash two loads on separate cycles (e.g stemware and pots) or you can start loading one while the other runs its cycle. Standard format models are easier to install and may have more flexible basket layouts. The choice is yours.

At 100% Appliances, we’re happy for you to get hands-on if it helps you find the right appliance. With a dishwasher, it’s important that it will fit your favourite dinner set, bowls, platters or stemware. So bring a few of your plates and glasses into the store, and try stacking them in different models. Trust us, this can avoid a lot of frustration when it you get it home!
‘Hey, keep the noise down..’ The decibel ratings of a dishwasher.
You want to keep your dishwasher as quiet as possible - especially if your kitchen is near the living or bedroom areas. The operating noise level will be specified in a decibel rating for each model. As a guide, 47 decibels is average; 45 or lower is better.
