Older dishwashers are outdated when it comes to maximising space. The latest models bring greater capacity to help larger households and busy families keep on top of what needs washing up. This is done by making sure the dishwashers can comfortably deal with around 13-14 place settings at once, with some having up to 16 place settings . Combined with quick wash programmes, the capacity makes all the difference when keeping your dishes under control.
The number of plates and dishes you'll need to wash will depend on the number of people being fed. So, by ensuring that the dishwasher can deal with at least twelve place settings, you’ll be covered for all scenarios. It’s a bigger capacity with a clear way to understand it.
While space to fit all the dirty dishes into one wash is great, it’s made even better with quick wash programmes. They cut down the time full loads take, so you can deal with the latest pile of plates quickly and efficiently. Now you have more time for yourself and less fuss.
When your dishwasher’s capacity isn’t big enough for your home, it means you need multiple cycles to get through your dirty dishes. But with a dishwasher that priorities capacity, it’s all sorted in one wash to reduce the time you spend using it and help save you money on energy bills.
The Samsung Series 7 dishwasher is perfect for medium-sized households and can handle thirteen place settings all at once, so there’ll always be plenty of space for your plates. With a Time Saver function that speeds up full washes without affecting results, this dishwasher is designed to handle sizable loads in quick time.

A single place setting is the complete set of crockery and cutlery that one person will use at a meal. So, when a dishwasher is given a certain number of place settings, you then have an idea of how many people’s dishes it can handle at once.
For a full-size dishwasher, you should expect it to be able to handle between 12 and 16 place settings comfortably. That means, for the average family, there’ll be plenty of space everyday for dishes, plates and cutlery.
Most dishwashers should last around seven to twelve years before you see any signs of age. So, it’s always worth making sure you have the perfect dishwasher for your home in order to get the most out of it.
