Question: What type of dishwasher tub material typically lasts the longest?
Top Answer (73% of 38 votes): Stainless steel.

Answer: Stainless steel
Explanation: A stainless steel dishwasher tub resists corrosion and is more durable than plastic. Stainless steel can withstand more heat than plastic, meaning the water can be heated to a higher temperature. It also retains heat better, increasing the efficiency of the drying cycle and saving the homeowner money. The heavier steel walls absorb noise better, making for a quieter wash cycle than with plastic tubs. In addition, stainless steel is less likely to spot or stain and resists hard water stains and odors. A dishwasher with a stainless steel tub typically has a higher upfront price than one with a plastic tub. By checking the energy ratings, you can calculate and compare the long-term costs of the stainless steel and plastic tub models you're considering.
