Types of Compact Dishwashers for Small Kitchens

Countertop Dishwashers

Countertop dishwashers are the most portable option. They are the smallest and may hold several place settings at a time. You can take it with you on the go or keep it sitting neatly on your countertop. Some may hook up to the kitchen sink for water, but others do not require a hookup.

Built-In Mini Dishwashers

Built-in mini dishwashers can vary in style. One version is a kitchen-sink-and-dishwasher combination, in which the mini dishwasher drops into the countertop and is accessed from the top. You lose a bit of counter space, but you may have just the right dishwasher size you need!

Built-In Compact Dishwashers

Other built-in compact dishwashers look exactly like normal under-counter dishwashers except that they are slimmer. They are just as tall, but they are not as wide. This slim design can still hold up to about ten place settings, which is ample even for larger families.

Freestanding Dishwashers

Freestanding, portable dishwashers sit on wheels and can have a nice countertop on top. You can use them as extra counter space and part of a kitchen island. You can wheel it about wherever you want, so its placement is flexible. However, when you use it, it will need to reach the kitchen sink to hook up to the water supply.

Dishwasher Drawers

Dishwasher drawers can be single or double. One accesses them from the top, naturally. This sleek dishwasher style allows you to keep all your countertop space and floor space. With two dishwasher drawers, you can carry out two different dishwasher cycles at once or wash a smaller load without wasting water and energy.
