There are 4 types of dishwashers available: (1) Standard, (2) Compact, (3) Portable and (4) Drawer Dishwashers.
In this edition of the Laura Report we focus on Drawer Dishwashers as they compare to a standard dishwasher.
A standard dishwasher is generally 24″ wide and can hold on average up to 15 place settings.
Drawer dishwasher are also 24″ wide and are designed to fit into existing cabinet cut outs. The features provided are about the same as a standard dishwasher however they are suggested to being more user friendly.
Drawer dishwashers are becoming more popular because they are designed to make cleaning your dishes easier and more user friendly. They also give you the option between and single or double drawer install.
Drawer dishwashers are ergonomic! Combining intelligent technology & simple mechanics means more space for your dishes in a smaller area. Drawer dishwashers can be smaller then standard dishwashers in a form of the single drawer option. They are conveniently positioned at countertop height so people with limited mobility and easily load and unload the dishwasher.
Multiple Wash Settings.
Drawer dishwashers have generally 6 to 9 wash options including an eco setting that will minimize your water & energy usage. Fisher Paykel & DCS drawers let you wash everything from fine glass and crystal to dirty pots and pans. Plus, they have the worlds first flow through dispenser that ensures detergent is throughly dissolves while a 3 stage filtration process removes debris and prevents blockage. This will make sure that you don’t end up with any clumps or residue left behind on your dishes.
Each drawer is a completely independent wash area and can be used at the same time but while running different cycles. You could be using the top drawer for a gentle wash on glassware while doing a heavy wash on the bottom drawer for your pots and pans. This gives you a good amount of flexibility when it comes to cleaning your dishes and you don’t have to choose a wash cycle that will only be good for half of your dishes that need cleaning.
The racks are easily adjustable and have foldable cup holders and tines that can cater to each cycle of dishes you need cleaning.
They provide a 3 stage flood protection system and child locks that will provide peace of mind.
The best way to find a dishwasher that will work for you is to stop by your local Factory Builder Stores and test out the dishwashers we have on display. You could even bring in your dishes to make sure they will all fit the way you would like best.
