The best pressure washer for you is the one that does an effective job for you, at the price you are comfortable paying. Of course, this is the bottom line. But let's back up just a bit. Anytime you have a discussion involving the word "best" you are entering the exciting world of opinion and subjectivity. What is the best way to paint? Up and down of course. What is the proper method for feeding a baby? Cold milk from a glass. What is the correct procedure for brushing one's teeth? First the front four, then the left, then the right, then the back, it's the only way. You see, there is no "best" in much of life. One method or way is likely as good as another in many circumstances.
Fortunately, what determines the best pressure washer isn't confined to some narrow matter of opinion. Some may have certain desirable features that others don't have. Do you need those? Some may be a stunning color, while others may be drab. Does that matter? Some units might be powered by a gasoline engine, while others might be powered by an electric motor, or by regular household current. Do you have a preference, or a certain need that one will fill that the others won't? Do you see where I am going with this?
To claim that one best pressure washer exists is a bit of a leap, especially if what you really mean to say is that there is only one pressure washer on the market today that is absolutely the best for anyone and everyone, and under all conceivable circumstances. In fact, that would be absurd. Better to say that, in your opinion, some specific washer is the best. Then, as with any argument, back it up with compelling reasons. Only then do you stand a chance of swaying others to your strong point of view. Now that we have that straight, let's move on.
Let's say that you agree that there is no one and only best pressure washer that can be independently and objectively verified with absolute certainly. Fine, but you still need to know how to identify the right one for your own needs. Start by being clear about why you want one in the first place. This will give you a good idea of how much power you need. It will also tell you what other features would be best. As you research and compare you will be armed with enough information to make your purchase and know that you found the best pressure washer, for you.
Some things you might consider during your search is how long the company has been around and what sort of customer service they offer. Can you get service and parts when needed? Another thing you'll want to settle on is whether you need the portability that a gasoline powered pressure washer gives you. Maybe electric is more your style.
You may not buy the best pressure washer in the universe, but if you take some basic care in identifying what you really need, then you will buy the best one for you. And that's good enough.
