Compact Dishwashers are perfect for Small Kitchen Spaces!

By: Nicole Martins

If you’re looking at the selection of compact dishwashers, you will find slim 18" models available as well as countertop models. In addition, portable dishwashers in 24" size and 18" size are also available.

18" dishwashers

These machines can be very useful when kitchen space is tight. However, these machines do not necessarily offer a bargain to consumers as they tend to cost as much as a low priced 24" dishwasher, which is to say $300 to $450. For selection, Miele makes an 18" model as does Kenmore.

You can also find portable models manufactured by Danby, Equator, Frigidaire, and Haier. These dishwashers are mobile and generally include either casters or a set of wheels.

To operate you need to plug in, and hook up to the faucet.

For functionality, portable dishwashers can be extremely useful when there’s no room for a built-in machine. When not in use, you can store the unit in a separate location; a closet or beneath the stairs. Additionally, portable models are equipped with a countertop which provides a nice surface for numerous kitchen tasks.

Countertop dishwashers

These compact dish cleaning machines are pretty much the smallest dishwashers available. Most are designed with microwave styling, and can be built-in or used portably.

Danby makes a nice countertop model, it includes a window and microwave styling. It also features a stainless steel interior and is energy efficient. Typically, you can wash about 4 place settings in the countertops.

Is this dishwasher your best option? These models can be very good in the right situation. However, if you have a family and kids, this appliance is far too small. On the other hand, if you have a limited number of dishes to wash, countertop models can be very useful!
