An 18 Inch Dishwasher might be the perfect appliance for you if you're an apartment dweller or have limited kitchen and/or bar space.
A standard dishwasher is 24" wide. But for many, they just don't have the cabinet space to accommodate such a large appliance and so they simply forgo the convenience of having one.
But an 18 inch dishwasher is the perfect option because at the average price of $300-$500, it can literally buy you time.
Once considered a specialty item, these 18 inch models are becoming more and more prevalent. Some of the major brands have quickly recognized the revenue benefits to addressing this need.
Because the popularity of these models is still on the rise, it may be difficult to locate a retailer who has these units in stock. But there are a number of online retailers who will be happy to serve you. Here are some of the brands we recommend:
Avanti is also known for its specialty compact products. Known by dorm-dwellers the world over as well as hotel guests (for great mini-bar refrigerators).
For the same type of function, Avanti also makes a great line of 18 inch dishwasher models. Definitely a brand to consider.
The Bosch Integra line is one of the better full sized dishwasher models and they've taken that great quality and innovation and put it into a unit that's 6 inches smaller.
Danby is known for making GREAT Compact Refrigerators, but did you know they also make a great line of compact dishwashers as well. They are definitely a brand to consider when size DOES matter.
GE is one of the newer entrants into this particular niche and they have done everything they can to make sure they have the widest variety possible in a number of price ranges.
The Kenmore brand has always stood for quality, but know that their 18 inch dishwasher models are actually manufactured by Whirlpool. However, the quality is still there.
It's always nice to just jump in and go for it so here are three eighteen inch dishwashers currently on the market.
