GE, Danby, Electrolux, Whirlpool, Kenmore and SPT all make both portable and built-in dishwashers measuring 18 inches. Frigidaire, Bosch and Miele make top-rated 18-inch dishwashers.
The Frigidaire FFBD1821MS features a stainless steel tank. Its cleaning features allow users to wash fine china and crystal, pots and pans, and normal dishes according to the setting.
The Bosch SPX5ES55UC is highly rated both by Yale Appliance and by Best Buy customers. The Bosch dishwasher features four wash cycles as well as sanitation and time-delay options. This dishwasher is also noted for its focus on quietness.
Miele manufactures all parts of its G4510SCISS model dishwasher except for the rollers under the racks. That means the dishwasher rarely needs servicing. The Miele model employs a unique drying system whereby the machine lets air into the exterior. The side wall attracts steam from inside the washer and dissipates it.
Best Buy customers also value the Danby 18-inch portable dishwasher. This washer can accommodate up to eight place settings, features a hard food dispenser and a sound-reduction package. The Frigidaire portable model is also valued. The Frigidaire dishwasher has six wash cycles, four wash levels and the option to choose either heated or air dry. For built in dishwashers, the GE Profile 18-inch model offers a speed wash cycle and a contour door that fully integrates into the countertop.
