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.
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.
When my husband and I needed to buy a new dishwasher we wanted to buy one that is well regarded by Consumer Reports. We wanted to make sure it had a good warranty and not too many fancy bells and whistles we'll never use. We've read that a lot of homeowners make the mistake of going hog wild choosing appliances with lots of features they'll actually never use. These upgrades can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars and end up being a total waste of money.
