Tall Tub Dishwasher versus Standard
Average Specification Differences
Depending on the model, the tall tub super capacity dishwasher can be up to three inches taller on the interior than a standard model. In some cases, this added volume of the tall tub can equate to handling 14 five-piece dinner place settings versus 12.
The tall tub super capacity dishwasher can also handle taller items that may not fit in the standard model such as cookie sheets and plastic cutting boards.
Which Dishwasher Is Right for You?
One dishwasher model is not necessarily better than another is. The decision comes down to the dishwasher model that will fit your individual needs. For example, a family that generates many dishes daily and has to run the dishwasher more than once a day will save time, money, and energy purchasing a tall tub dishwasher that may be able to handle the workload in fewer loads.
Here are examples of situations where one model is preferable over another.
Tall Tub Dishwasher
- Run full daily loads
- Have many tall items such as stock pots and cookie sheets
- Have many odd shaped dishes wine glasses and vases
Standard Capacity Dishwasher
- Have average dishwashing needs
