Countertop dishwashers save space and do not require complex plumbing connections. They are portable devices that are ideal for small kitchens and often result in reduced utility bills.
Because countertop dishwashers are designed to sit on top of the kitchen countertop, they take up considerably less space than traditional dishwashers. They are similar in size to microwave ovens. This has several advantages.
First, it allows a small kitchen to maximize on storage and drawer space. Instead of removing the storage needed to install a regular dishwasher, the countertop model allows these important areas to remain intact without requiring the user to hand wash all dinnerware. Additionally, the top of the countertop dishwasher can still be used as counter space. This means that the space taken up by the device is still usable, even when the machine is in operation.
Second, the plumbing needs of a countertop dishwasher are considerably simpler than traditional dishwashers. The water utilized by this machine comes from the kitchen sink. The dishwasher simply plugs into the sink faucet. When the cleaning cycle is complete, the device can be drained directly into the sink. This makes using the machine simple and convenient.
Finally, the compact size and minimal water means utility bills are considerably reduced compared with traditional dishwashers.
