Top 10 Integrated Dishwashers in the UK

An integrated dishwasher is designed to be concealed behind a cupboard door when shut. It’s the perfect way of getting the cleaning power of a dishwasher into your kitchen while keeping the aesthetics of it intact.

Now, if you’ve been shopping for an integrated dishwasher for some time, you may have noticed that they often cost a little more than freestanding models. This cost difference is because they need to be designed to work in enclosed spaces. Ventilation, water management, size and more must be taken into consideration by the manufacturer during the design process.

On the installation side of things, integrated dishwashers are also a little bit more trouble. It can cost you a little more to install an integrated dishwasher than a freestanding model due to it being more complicated and taking more time. To ensure you end up with the look you want, you also need to make sure you are buying a machine that will fit perfectly in place with the door fitted. This can narrow down your choice somewhat.

Having said all of that, integrated dishwashers do work brilliantly and can make your kitchen look beautiful. A freestanding dishwasher does give a kitchen an unfinished looked while an integrated one can add even more to an already beautiful design.

So, if you’re kitchen is about to get redone, and you’d like to finish the design off perfectly, here are 10 integrated dishwashers that can help you do just that. We hope you find this list helpful in creating a wonderful kitchen for your home.

1. Hotpoint Ultima LTF11M132C Fully Integrated Standard Dishwasher

Hotpoint Ultima LTF11M132C Fully Integrated Standard Dishwasher

Key features

  • 14 place settings
  • A+++ energy rating
  • 30-minute quick wash
  • 12-hour delay
  • One-year manufacturer guarantee

Pros

  • Easy to use thanks to simple controls
  • Great build quality

Cons

Summary

The cons of this dishwasher are really just splitting hairs. Although the machine itself doesn’t tell you how long the programmes are, the manual does. And although some people have found it annoying that it doesn’t fit a “full-size” cabinet door, this depends on the how big your cabinet doors are; we feel this is more user error than the machines fault.

Overall, this is an excellent dishwasher. It is so easy to use and will last you years! It is full of great features, and it is ridiculously quiet, so it’s perfect if you like a quiet home (see the quietest dishwashers in the UK here).

10. Kenwood KID60S17 Full-size Integrated Dishwasher

Kenwood KID60S17 Full-size Integrated Dishwasher

Key features

  • 12 place settings
  • A++ energy rating
  • 52 dB noise level
  • 30-minute quick wash
  • One-year manufacturer warranty

Pros

  • Great selection of programmes
  • Simple to use controls
  • Excellent cleaning performance

Cons

  • Some find it difficult to load
  • Alarm can be annoying

Summary

Once again, we are pulling our hair out trying to find fault with this dishwasher. The alarm that tells you the cycle is complete repeats 4-5 times, which can get annoying if you have put the machine on before bed. Some people have found that the cutlery rack and the top drawer are hard to load with everything they want to be included in the washing cycle. However, some of these people have admitted this may be user error, so we don’t think it’s fair to fault the dishwasher for this.

Other than those minor points, this dishwasher is superb. It has all the programmes you need, it has incredible cleaning power and is very simple to install and use. It is one of the louder machines on this list, but at 52 dB, it is still well below the sound of a conversation, so unless you like talking in whispers, you’ll have no trouble with the noise.
