Best Benchtop Dishwashers

Ideal for singles or couples, renters and small spaces, a countertop dishwasher sits on your kitchen bench top and functions much the same as a conventional dishwasher, without having to be installed into your kitchen cabinetry. So if you're looking for a compact benchtop machine half the size and price of a standard dishwasher to take care of your dishwashing chores, compare our range of benchtop freestanding dishwashers to find the best one for you.


Since a bench top dishwasher is smaller than a standard dishwasher, it won't have as many place settings so keep in mind how many place settings you'd like your dishwasher to have. You can use our Number of Place Settings filter to sort appliances by place settings.

Although generally much cheaper than full size dishwashers, benchtop dishwashers aren't particularly energy efficient, with most appliances having a maximum Water and Energy Rating of 3.5 stars. Being smaller, they also may not fit larger dinner plates, so make sure you check the dimensions of both the benchtop dishwasher and your dinnerware before purchasing a new appliance.

These are just a few things to consider if you're looking to buy a benchtop dishwasher; read our independent reviews and use our filters to help you make a more informed choice and find the best benchtop dishwasher to suit your needs.
