Choosing Compact Dishwashers

If you need a dishwasher, but don’t have the space in your kitchen for a full sized integrated keyword, then a compact dishwasher or table top dishwasher may be the solution you need.  When you hit the store to pick out your unit along with different kitchen furniture like a kitchen table and plastic storage drawers, be sure to look for these features:

Safety Locks

The number one item to look for, if you have small children in your house, is that your dishwasher comes with a child lock. A dishwasher is no toy, and when it comes to kids you can never be too careful.

Washing Cycles

A nice feature for a countertop dishwasher is the ability to utilize multiple wash cycles.  This allows you to customize the leave of cleaning to the level of filthiness of your dishes.  For seriously baked on mess, you want the option of a heavy duty cycle.

Efficient Use of Space

In a compact dishwasher, space inside is at a premium.  A unit with two trays allows two tiers of dirty dishes to be stacked efficiently above each other.  Also, a design that incorporates a silverware carrier keeps these small items out of the main storage area.

Hard Food Disposal Option

Avoid the need to pre-rinse your dishes by selecting a compact dishwasher with this feature. These built-in filters remove the leftover grime and crumbs from your plates to save you the need to do it yourself before loading the dishwasher.

Energy and Water Efficiency

Choose a table top dishwasher that has an Energy Star label; even better, look for one that features low water usage.  These are two features that will likely cost you a little extra at purchase time, but you will recoup these costs through reduced cost of operation over time.

Choose your unit carefully, and enjoy the addition of your new compact tabletop dishwasher to your kitchen.
