Xiaomi dishwashers now available for preorder – Support of the Mi Home App
Who would have thought it: the dishwashers can actually be ordered in the China shops. At Banggood you can pre-order the small dishwasher for about $500 – a proud price. It remains to be seen whether it will still change. Currently, the dishwasher is too expensive. The large model currently costs even $680.
We asked the question at the beginning of many articles: “What doesn’t Xiaomi do?” As it turns out: Pretty much nothing. China has long been known as a manufacturer and seller of household appliances. Two of the latest additions to the range are two dishwashers.

Has the world been waiting for a Xiaomi dishwasher?
First of all: Xiaomi currently sells both dishwashers only in China. Whether they will make it into the other Xiaomi stores can only be speculated about. While it’s rather unlikely, especially with the large model, we can certainly imagine it with the small dishwasher. If the strategy of positioning oneself as broadly as possible is exported from China to Europe as well, a smart dishwasher would at least not be the most absurd contribution to this.
Both appliances are called “Internet dishwashers” – whatever that means exactly. In any case, integration into the Mi Home App (Android | iOS) is pretty certain. The larger model with dimensions of 560 x 605 x 520 mm is integrated into the kitchenette. The smaller model, on the other hand, can be set up as a freestanding unit – but of course it still needs a water connection.
Both devices have no buttons, but are operated via an OLED panel with touch function – provided that you don’t just use the app for that anyway. There are several modes (9/6 for the big and small machine respectively), and the devices are supposed to be both power and water saving.
Xiaomi sells the dishwashers in China for the equivalent of $324 and $180.It’s hard to say what the price in the shops would be – probably you would have to add 50%. It is questionable whether the purchase is still worthwhile then. It is probably only really interesting for those who see the integration into their Mi Home App and their “Smart Home” as an important feature.
Do you have a dishwasher at home?
I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine life without a dishwasher. I can’t imagine having to wash by hand after every meal. Do some of you feel differently? And would you like Xiaomi to sell such appliances outside China? Or are smartphones enough for you, and when it comes to dishwashers, would you rather rely on familiar brands?To the gadget
