Built-in dishwashers save floor space by fitting permanently into cabinetry. Buit-in models have an independent water line, so they can be used at the same time as the sink. Most units are 24" models with multiple wash settings and are commonly used in households with full-sized kitchens.
ENERGY STAR certified dishwashers use advanced technology to get your dishes clean while using less water and energy.
- Trim your utility bills — Was your dishwasher made before 1994? If so, you're paying an extra $40 a year on your utility bills compared to what you would pay if you owned a new ENERGY STAR qualified model. Replace your old dishwasher with ENERGY STAR and save enough money to pay for dishwasher detergent all year.
- Save loads of water — A dishwasher built before 1994 wastes more than 10 gallons of water per cycle. A new, ENERGY STAR qualified dishwasher will save, on average, 1,300 gallons of water over its lifetime.
- Save the environment — Nearly 70 percent of U.S. electricity is generated by burning coal and natural gas, which releases greenhouse gases and other air pollutants into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change and air quality problems. ENERGY STAR certified dishwashers use less energy than conventional models, which helps reduce air pollution and combat global climate change. By reducing water consumption, ENERGY STAR certified dishwashers also help protect our lakes, streams, and oceans.
