Compare the cost of replacing a damaged water inlet or drain valve with the cost of buying and installing a new dishwasher. There's a big difference. It's true that getting a repair done can be pricey and can throw your monthly budget into cardiac arrest. However dealing with a solvable problem when it comes up is much better than ignoring it and having to buy a whole new machine down the line. You might have to spend some money that you didn't plan on spending in the moment but you'll save far more money in the long run.
The other alternative is of course the more standard 60cm wide model that should easily provide for the needs of a family of four. Good dishwashers nowadays are quite efficient and usually include an eco cycle that whilst shorter still cleans lightly soiled crockery glassware and cutlery easily. The shorter cycle also makes it practical to do more than one load as long as you are happy to cope with a sink full of dirty dishes until then. The alternative option would be to site the dishwasher in a separate utility room where the dirty dishes can be hidden out of sight; especially useful in the open plan kitchen/living/dining spaces of today's modern home. However the compromise of locating the dishwasher in the utility as opposed to the main kitchen would involve more of a trek between the two spaces when loading and unloading; these are options to discuss with your kitchen designer. For a large luxury kitchen used by a big family two full size dishwashers may be specified.
The drawer dishwasher also fits into a sink and it too is suitable for handling small loads in double time and it can double up as extra counter space. A single drawer dishwasher costs about seven hundred dollars while a double drawer dishwasher costs about twelve hundred dollars. Finally you might want to check out the portable dishwasher that is an ideal kitchen utility for renters and also for a homeowner that has limited space. Priced at between four hundred and six hundred dollars it is a useful appliance indeed.
The ideal size for a small dishwasher is whatever width your cabinets are next to the sink. Standard cabinet widths are 12 15 and 18 inches. There are plenty of 18 inch dishwashers for about $400 each. They typically fit eight plate settings which would work for a family of three. 15 inch dishwashers are far and few between none of the major retailers has one. So if the cabinets next to your sink are 15 inches or less you may want to skip an under counter dishwasher all together and try one of the newer counter top dishwashers.
It is easy to look at a small kitchen and think "oh great I'll just never cook again. Or have friends over for dinner." But it does not have to be that way. Your tiny kitchen can have any of the things large kitchens have. You just can't have all the things large kitchens have. But if you really want a dishwasher there are more options than you'd think and you do not have to drain your savings account.
