With so many dishwashers to choose from, it’s normal to find yourself confused about the perfect model to get. Here at Countdown Deals, we listed three common dishwasher types we offer for your home and what makes them distinct from each other.


Bench Top Dishwashers

Bench Top Dishwashers, also known as Tabletop Dishwashers, are compact and sit atop counters or any sturdy surface. They offer an easy cleaning solution for small loads and can be easily connected to kitchen faucets.

These compact appliances are excellent for those who don’t have a spacious kitchen area and those who can’t alter their cabinetry to make space for freestanding washers. They’re also excellent choices for rental units, caravans, motor homes, or rooms where you don’t want to add any more full-sized appliances. Plus, these portable washers can be easily stored when not in use.

If you’ve decided to get one, we recommend the Midea MDWB1BL Countertop Dishwasher from Countdown Deals. Don’t let the size fool you, as you’ll get a 6-place setting and eight wash programs, including intense washing, extra drying, and an express wash setting. It also comes with a modern LED display, a child lock feature, and a low noise level operation of 49db.



Drawer Dishwashers, or dish drawers, are another washer type common in custom kitchens. Their designs can vary and can be single or double-dish drawers. They’re known to make loading and unloading straightforward and accessible.

Some people opt for dish drawers instead of freestanding ones since they take less space in the kitchen and can be integrated into the counters to minimise bending. They offer a seamless look, and they’re easy to clean.

If you’re looking for a stylish washer for your modern kitchen, then the Fisher & Paykel DD60DCX9 DishDrawer Double Dishwasher makes a great washing companion. This washer is designed to fit in and complement existing cabinetry with its seamless stainless steel finish. Operation-wise, you’ll get 14-place settings and six wash programs from delicate to heavy washing so you can wash from dainty glassware to heavy pans with ease. Enjoy extra cleaning with a sanitising program that eliminates nasty bacteria, plus its quick wash cycles and extra dry features are also worth noting.

We recommend getting a double dishwasher such as the Fisher & Paykel DD60DCX9 if you want to deal with two loads of dishes separately and simultaneously.


Freestanding Dishwashers

Freestanding Dishwashers accommodate large loads of dishes, are powerful, and are often bulky. You can place these types of washers in any area of your home.

If you have a spacious kitchen, then a freestanding dishwasher such as the LG XD3A25BS Quadwash Freestanding Dishwasher is an excellent choice. This LG Quadwash Appliance has a 15-place setting that thoroughly cleans with dishes via powerful water jets shot at multiple angles. Your dishes are in for a treat with LG’s TrueSteam technology that deals with stubborn food residue. The LG washer also offers eight programs, including the Auto, Intensive, or delicate mode, with an EasyRack system that lets you efficiently organise and load dirty dishes.
