Drawer Dishwasher

A drawer dishwasher is a compact dishwasher unit that is stored in your kitchen cabinets as opposed to being the typical dishwasher design that features a folding door. There are both single and double-drawer dishwashers and each have their advantages. You also have the option of installed more than one single drawer dishwasher if you wish to do so.

Advantages of a Drawer Dishwasher
There are many reasons why a drawer dishwasher would be preferred over a traditional dishwasher. One of the great benefits to a single drawer dishwasher is that it is much more sturdy and stable when installed properly. This is mostly because there are not many parts that can be damaged easily. The result of this is a much more durable and long lasting unit. As there are less parts being used it also means that it is very energy efficient and will cost less to use.

The compact design of the drawer dishwasher is another one of many reasons why it is a great choice. If you are looking for a dishwasher that can be used in a small apartment unit then this would be by far the best choice you have.

Disadvantages of a Drawer Dishwasher
Starting off, there are not many drawer dishwashers on the market. The major brand names for kitchen appliances have a few models available but they are not extremely popular. You may have to put some effort into finding a drawer dishwasher but there will still be a few models from popular brand names available.

Another major issue with the drawer dishwasher design is that there is a rather limited load capacity. If you are living alone then this is not an issue and in fact it is preferred. Those that live alone would not want to waste money on energy bills as a result of washing a small load in a large dishwasher. However, if you have multiple people in your home and dishes pile up quickly, the load capacity with a drawer dishwasher could be a problem. Even if you purchased the double-drawer dishwasher model it may still be not enough space.

Buying a Drawer Dishwasher
Many drawer dishwashers are also fairly limited when it comes to features. You may have difficulties finding a good drawer dishwasher to find. If you are looking to buy this style of dishwasher then this simply means that you will have to spend more time looking for a good deal then expected. Some features that you should look out for include the load capacity and total number of cycles per load.

A drawer dishwasher can be a great investment if you are looking for a fashionable dishwasher that can save space and money. You can find a single drawer unit for roughly $550 to $1,000 but the double-drawer units can easily cost over $1,000. Some notable drawer dishwasher brands include Kenmore and Kitchen Aid. If you want to purchase a top end model then expect to pay $1,000 to $1,300 depending on the design, size, features, and more.

Final Thoughts

A drawer dishwasher is a great choice if you are looking for a compact light duty dishwasher for your home. There are many different designs which have very intriguing exterior properties. Not only are these dishwashers stylish but they can also come with a number of useful features. This will vary by unit though and you will have to be careful when making your decision.

You may also want to find reviews on specific models of drawer dishwashers as you do not want to waste your money. With the limited amount of information available on these machines it would be recommended that you spend more time researching your choices before making a purchase. However, we can conclude by saying that drawer dishwashers are a great investment, especially for people living alone.
