The drying cycle is pretty ineffective, and the washer is a bit prone to leakage.


Performance: If you're looking for a dishwasher that fits a compact kitchen with very little counter space, this is the appliance for you. At 18 inches wide, it fits under counters with less space—a full six inches narrower than your average 24" dishwasher.

It may not look like much, but you can fit a surprising amount of dishes into the racks. They're designed with plenty of vertical space to hold pots, pans, and larger plates. The stainless steel door looks beautiful and lends an elegance to your modern kitchen. The installation is simple (though some users reported needing to buy adapters for their hoses) and the machine is set to run right out of the box.

Features: The dishwasher comes with all the basic features: multiple wash cycles, user-friendly electronic controls, and a "set it and forget it" design. You will have to leave the door open to let the dishes dry, however, as the drying cycle is ineffective.

Price: The $500 price tag on this dishwasher is a bit pricier than you'd expect from such a compact machine. You can find full-sized dishwashers at the same price, so it may not seem worth it to purchase. However, if you don't have enough kitchen space for a full-sized washer, this is your best choice.
