Small dishwashers are defined as smaller than 24 inches wide. They can be built into cabinets, attached to the sink via hoses, or there are countertop models. If you have a small kitchen, here are some dishwashers to consider.
FisherPaykel dual-drawer dishwasher
Chosen by the University of Minnesota's 2009 Solar Decathalon team to outfit their space effcient entry in the contest, the FisherPaykel dishwasher is small and tucks away into cabinetry.
Measuring just 20 x 15 x 15 inches, this Supentown dishwasher will take up very little space in a small kitchen. It has several wash cycles as well as a 150 watt warm air dry cycle.
EdgeStar 6 place setting
It measures approximately 17 x 22 x 19 inches and can hold plates up to 10.5 inches in diameter. This model expects to use only 200 kilowatt hours per year, 61% less energy than a standard countertop dishwasher. See a video guide here.
Bosch multi-function with built in LED
Bosch offers a four part safety net to prevent their dishwasher from leaking all over your floor. It is also slim enough to fit into a narrow cabinet space at only 18 inches wide.
Danby 18 inch full console
Danby makes this model as either an 18 inch wide built in or mobile dishwasher. If you are pressed for cabinet space, an 18 inch dishwasher will fit more easily than a 24 inch dishwasher.
