Features of compact dishwashers
Which dishwasher to choose? Consider the installation types:
- Stand-alone PMMs will fit perfectly on the table. The overall dimensions of models can be 44х50х55 cm or - height 60 cm, width 55 cm and depth 50 cm. The tank holds from 4 to 6 sets. The advantage of a separate arrangement is that, if necessary, the machine can be rearranged to another location.
- Embedded models have a special design for convenient placement in the kitchen. Dimensions of equipment on average 45h60h55 cm. Some users believe that there are smaller dishwashers with a width of 45 cm, but they refer to small desktop models.
- The most interesting option is a dishwasher under the sink. Its dimensions correspond to the previous versions, but the design is slightly different. The upper cover is slightly chamfered specially for installation under the siphon.
When choosing a compact PMM, it should be borne in mind that the energy and water consumption does not differ from the standard machine, if they belong to the same class. In this case, the rate is made to save space by size.
Advantages and disadvantages
Before you make a purchase, you need to consider all the pros and cons of mini dishwashers.
- dimensions - you can put equipment even in a small kitchen;
- loading - there is no need to accumulate dishes, you can wash it right away thanks to a small load.
- difficulties with washing large saucepans, frying pans, baking trays. Some pans are larger in size than the height of the technique;
- the cost of compact machines from well-known manufacturers is not less than full-size;
- if necessary, to wash more dishes, the resource costs are increased.
Judge for yourself, whether for compactness it is worth sacrificing capacity. Perhaps, there will be a place for another model.
Pay attention to the equipment manufacturer. Users praise desktop models from Midea, Electrolux and Ginzzu, which differ in capacity and affordable cost.
In the installation, built-in PMMs do not differ from stand-alone. Connect the machine to the drain and mains by following the instructions. The only difference is the presence of a protective plate on the body, which protects the countertop from the effects of hot steam.

The dishwasher was given to us for a wedding. Immediately upset that compact, a lot of dishes are not damp. But when they settled down and made the kitchen furniture, I realized that this was her advantage. The car is working quietly, you need to get used to opening the door at a certain angle.

At incomplete loading it is noisy working, despite specified 45 Db! After starting the door is not locked, so you can report the plates, while the program stops. It's a pity that only one lower sprinkler, I would like the upper one. Despite this, the dishes are washed well.
