We plan to live in our home for at least five more years and this fact does weigh on our dishwasher choice. We want to make sure we have an energy efficient dishwasher but want to be able to recoup our money. Another mistake homeowners make is buying the most expensive energy saving product. Sometimes this is not an efficient use of money. If you buy a $1200 dishwasher you may only be saving $20-$50 a year on water and energy usage. You would have to stay in your home at least 10 years to realize the savings over the $700 model. Something else to consider when buying a dishwasher.
Counter top dishwashers are also called "portable dishwashers". If you are working in a truly minuscule kitchen being able to pack up the dishwasher and put it in a closet when not in use might be a good thing. Otherwise you will need to sacrifice some of your already reduced counter space for the dishwasher. The good news is that these counter top dishwashers cost about $250 and they usually fit four place settings which is enough for two people. So if you can find even 24 inches of counter space in your little kitchen you can still get a dishwasher.
Today every updated kitchen has a dishwasher or should have a dishwasher. I know people who spent a fortune on cabinets flooring and fancy granite counter top when they updated their kitchen. Unfortunately they didn't install a dishwasher. A big no-no in today's tough real estate market. Even though it's just my husband and I in our home now we still use our dishwasher about once every 3-4 days. I rinse the dishes well before I put them in the dishwasher since they'll be sitting for a few days before washing. I always use the heated dry cycle unless I'm washing my good china in which case I don't.
