Portable Dishwashers

Pros and cons

Portable Dishwashers

Portable dishwashers can be a great option for the modern kitchen. They’re particularly appealing if you’re building a new kitchen or not replacing a standard built-in dishwasher. This is because they can be easily rolled out of the way when not in use and are simply connected to the normal kitchen tap to supply their water needs (as in the case of countertop units).

However, because of their moveable nature, portable and countertop dishwashers are often lighter and of a lesser quality than top of the range built-in integrated models. This means portable units may have fewer wash options, be less efficient on water and power usage and not provide as effective cleaning as standard models.

Portable, compact dishwashers are also less likely to have multiple spray heads, which are one of the main factors in the quality of wash you receive. The basic rule of thumb for all dishwashers is that the more locations water sprays from, the more likely it is that all food scraps and stains will be removed from the surface of the dishes.

However, as a lifestyle decision, this type of dishwasher can be a boon to any kitchen, because they provide extra flexibility in terms of space and kitchen functionality. Imagine not having a permanent space under your kitchen bench wasted on a built-in washing machine and instead having the freedom and extra space that a portable compact dishwasher can provide. Think carefully about this decision and weigh up the pros and cons of whether or not a portable dishwasher is best for your lifestyle.
