One solution you can make use of is slimline dishwashers. These are functioning exactly like full-size dishwashers and also to the same high standard. So you do not have to compromise on quality, when you are in need of a slimline dishwasher. Moreover you can acquire slimline dishwashers in a wide range of different styles, so that you can get a slimline dishwasher, which fits the rest of your kitchen. Perhaps the most important element in choosing a slimline dishwasher is, that you have to make sure it will slot into the available space in your kitchen.
The slimline dishwashers often have compact dimensions such as 850 height, 450 width and 600mm depth. The height measurement is especially one that you have to take into consideration; sometimes this can be too high for an installation under your kitchen work surface. When it comes to loudness and energy efficiency, slimline dishwashers have undergone the same transformation as full-size dishwashers. Consequently you can get a slimline dishwasher, that doesn't make a lot of noise and is highly energy efficient.
Another important point about the slimline dishwasher is that you can get it integrated in your kitchen. An integrated slimline dishwasher means that your dishwasher is hidden behind a kitchen element, which matches all the cupboards in your kitchen. Thereby your kitchen will appear as a whole. You just have to make sure, that you are able to get the exact kitchen element in the right measurements to your dishwasher.
The second solution to getting a smaller dishwasher is the tabletop dishwasher. These are also named different things such as countertop-, portable- or compact dishwashers. Tabletop dishwashers are around the same size as a microwave oven, and they can fit approx four or five complete place settings.
However you are not able to fit your pots and frying pans into it. If you wish to hide the tabletop dishwasher away, some models are available with wheels underneath, so that you are better able to move it around. If you really want to make the most of your limited space, you can also get a tabletop dishwasher with a cutting board on the top. Although it is called a tabletop dishwasher, some models will also be able to get converted under your counter.
Why choose a tabletop dishwasher rather than doing the dishes by hand? A tabletop dishwasher is efficient and it doesn't use a lot of water or electricity. In fact they use less water than when you are doing your dishes by hand. Moreover they are easy to install, even more than a full-size dishwasher. A tabletop dishwasher is ideal if you live in a small studio apartment, a small household or you live by yourself, for which reason you don't have a lot of tableware to clean up at a time.
