At a Glance
You don’t have to pay a lot of money to buy a quality dishwasher. The technology doesn’t change much between a luxury model and a basic appliance. The dishes get washed, the food is drained away, and the system dries your cookware as much as possible before completing the cycle.
Sleek and Stylish Appliances
You also don’t have to give up on popular appliance styles just because you are buying an affordable dishwasher. You can buy a sleek stainless steel unit or a classic black model that matches the other appliances in your kitchen.
Use this guide to start your dishwasher search. Here are four dishwasher models for under $1,000 and a few benefits of buying black appliances.
When it comes to choosing a color for your dishwasher, black is one of the top options you can choose. In fact, black appliances continue to be one of the most popular choices for customers across the United States. Here are a few reasons why black appliances are the best.
- They can hide stains. Stuck on grease isn’t as noticeable on black appliances as on white ones.
- They are easy to match. While black stainless steel appliances can be hard to match, traditional black appliances will pair together across different brands and models.
- You have added flexibility to your kitchen design. You can opt for high-contrast white cabinets or design a kitchen where your appliances blend in with the countertops. Black appliances usually won’t stick out.
- They are easy to find. Black is one of the most popular appliance colors, so you won’t have to search very far to find them.
- They improve your resale value. Many home buyers expect stainless steel or black kitchen appliances. Your kitchen can be an asset when selling your home.
If you don’t already have black appliances in your kitchen, it might be time to rethink your current options and choose a darker palate.
You can make your kitchen appliances look expensive without overpaying for them. Here are a few popular models by trusted brands to consider. Evaluate the different features offered and choose the best one for your kitchen.
Whirlpool is a great brand to start with if you are looking for a standard black dishwasher. There are four different cycle options to choose from depending on what you need to dry. This includes a one-hour wash cycle for washing dishes in a hurry.
You can trust this Whirlpool dishwasher with heavy-duty and complicated cleaning tasks. There is a high-temperature wash option when you need to sanitize plates and baby bottles, along with a heavy wash cycle for removing cooked-on food.
This black dishwasher is Energy Star ® certified, which means it exceeds government standards for water and electrical consumption. If you are replacing an older dishwasher model, you might notice that your water bill drops just by upgrading to this unit.
You can learn more about this model by reading customer reviews. One buyer writes, “I bought this about 5 months ago and love how quietly it runs. You can barely even hear it compared to my older one. The dishes are always very clean as well.”
This is a standard 24-inch model that can fit in most homes. Double check your dishwasher width to make sure you have enough space in your kitchen for this appliance.
GE also produces multiple quality dishwasher models that you can choose from. This particular black dishwasher with stainless steel tub has several features that can make it an asset to your home.
First, it is NSF certified, which means the National Sanitation Federation deems it a safe choice for removing bacteria and other contaminants from your plates and cookware. You can place raw chicken on plates and cutting boards before frying it and know that anything that it touches will get clean.
This model is also ADA-compliant with a low-profile installation option. It can be installed to align with lower countertops, which are accessible for people who use wheelchairs.
GE also designed this dishwasher with its Piranha™ food disposer and filter. Any food particles will get broken down into small bits and washed away for a thorough cleaning experience.
Read customer reviews to see what people think about this black dishwasher. One reviewer says, “This dishwasher is so quiet I have to put my ear to it to make sure it's on. It gets my dishes so clean, it's great.”
Just because you are in the market for an affordable dishwasher doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice storage capacity. You can find several models that offer extra space and engineered layouts that are meant to accommodate large families.
For example, this model comes with a Store-More™ removable third rack which is ideal for placing whisks, mixing spoons, and other large utensils. It also has a SpaceWise® adjustable rack which can be lifted or lowered depending on what you need to clean. You can now customize each dishwasher load based on what needs to be washed.
This is a black stainless steel dishwasher that can fit up to 14 place settings. It is both stylish and functional, which is why it is such a popular model. The Frigidaire Gallery brand is still considered affordable but comes with features that standard Frigidaire units don’t usually have. You will feel like you have a luxury appliance in your home without going over budget.
To learn more about the features offered by this Frigidaire dishwasher, check out buyer reviews. One customer says, “Love my new dishwasher! There is so much room. The extra small rack at the top works great for large utensils and small bowls.”
An alternative to buying one of the black stainless steel dishwashers on the market is a modern dishwasher with a matte finish. Consider this Samsung appliance if you want an affordable model that is also designed well.
The control panel is placed on the top of the unit for easy access. This also hides the control panel whenever the door is fully closed. The stainless steel door is durable and locks tight, so your dishwasher won’t fall open during the day.
This base-model dishwasher comes with an Auto Cycle feature that detects the right cycle based on the load. There’s a big difference between washing a few dishes and scrubbing the grease off of heavy-duty pots and pans.
This dishwasher is also Energy Start® certified so you can enjoy powerful cleaning levels without washing water.
You can get an idea of the quality of this dishwasher by reading customer reviews. One person says, “The machine has those hidden digital touch controls so the kids won't have the chance to turn it on and for a safety concern I think that is very helpful.”

Let’s review a few remaining questions.
What is a portable dishwasher?
A portable dishwasher is an ideal option if you don’t have space for a built-in appliance in your kitchen. This is a dishwasher on wheels that you roll out to your kitchen and hook up to your sink. It works just like a standard dishwasher except you put it away in a closet or garage when you are done.
What is black stainless steel?
Black stainless steel is made of the same materials as standard stainless steel. The only difference is that it comes with a matte finish. This finish might look different across various brands, so make sure a black stainless steel dishwasher will match a range and refrigerator before you buy it.
