What Is the Best Dishwasher?

According to Google, inquiring minds want to know: what’s the best dishwasher?

Well, if you read “leading consumer publications,” you already know.

Bosch Ascenta dishwashers top the Consumer Reports’ dishwasher ratings list.

And the cool thing about Bosch dishwashers is all that performance comes packaged in an award-winning design that also is recognized for its excellence in conserving water and energy.

Bosch likes to think that all its consumers enjoy these awards, because of the daily rewards they represent in dependability and simplicity and all that good stuff.

And did we mention these dishwashers are quiet? Babies love Bosch. Don’t believe us?

Who Makes the Quietest Dishwasher?

Imagine a dishwasher so quiet, you can run it during dinner.

Heck, you could run it during a party.

Yeah, that’s a Bosch dishwasher.

You’ve probably heard of Bosch dishwashers. Though you’ve probably never actually heard a Bosch dishwasher.

(watch this video and you’ll see what I mean)

Dishwasher dBA

Dishwasher noise, and for that matter noise in general, is measured in dBA units (or A-weighted decibels…).

Our best-selling Bosch dishwasher, for instance, is 53 dBA.

A vacuum cleaner from 10 feet away is 70 dBA, and a watch ticking is 30 dBA. A three-decibel increase is the auditory equivalent of running two washers at once, according to Bosch.

Bosch’s quietest dishwasher is 39 dBA.

Wondering what noise a tree makes if it falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it? Shop Bosch dishwashers at Warners’ Stellian.

Common Cottage Eco Experience at the Minnesota State Fair

Again this year, Warners’ Stellian appliances among other eco-friendly home ideas in the Eco Experience Common Cottage exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair.

Sure the house has a smart design and is constructed from reused and reclaimed materials, but you can also learn tips to improve the house you have: increase the energy efficiency of your home with an energy audit, incorporate composting and recycling systems, improve indoor air quality and install eco-friendly kitchen surfaces and appliances.

And if that doesn’t get you going, there are backyard chickens on the patio, covered by part of the now-defunct Metrodome roof (and a super pretty natural gas grill from Warners’ Stellian).

If you’re intersted in improving the energy efficiency of your home, you’ll be introduced to the best resources for financing your energy improvements, from loans, rebates, tax credits, or grants.

My camera ran out of batteries before I could take pictures of the STUNNING kitchen, with its blue-green colored reclaimed cabinets and recycled glass counter tops, but I can show you the smart and sexy appliances we chose to showcase this year:

Liebherr refrigerator

The architects on this project specifically requested Liebherr, and we couldn’t have agreed more. Liebherr goes beyond being super energy efficient (27% over federal standards) to become the most sustainable refrigerators; its refrigerators are manufactured in the greenest way out there. Plus, its two compressors ensure premium food preservation. Basically, your fresh (local?) foods will last way longer because the dry air from the freezer won’t disturb the humidity in the refrigerator.

Electrolux induction range

Elements on this Electrolux induction range automatically detect the presence of magnetic cookware, activate the induction field and adjust it to the exact size of the pan. This means that no energy is wasted heating anything else but the cookware holding your food. Induction is 20% more efficient than electric and 70% more efficient than gas, though it boasts the same power and responsiveness that cooks love.

Bosch dishwasher

Not only is it whisper quiet, this Bosch dishwasher uses only 2.4 gallons of water per wash; the average kitchen faucet flows about 4 to 7 gallons per minute!

LG washer/dryer combination

 

This ventless LG washer / dryer combo takes up less space and washes and dry in one appliance. Plus the washer is Energy Star rated, meaning it uses less energy and water to do its job.
