Dishwasher Drawers - Thank you Fisher and Paykel!
Another manufacturer, Kitchenaid, followed in the footsteps of dishwasher drawer manufacturer Fisher and Paykel and now sells a double drawer set with the Kitchenaid label affixed. If you have other Kitchenaid appliances and are looking for a set of drawers you may want to stick with the Kitchenaid brand. The two drawers fit into the same size space as a 24" dishwasher.
Form and Function
Dish drawers have brought about a relatively new concept: if you have a small load of dishes, you can wash just one drawer independently. The popularity of this idea led other dishwasher manufacturers to develop a feature that would allow standard size dish washers to run small half-load cycles, thus, saving energy and water. (Miele, for example, developed the Top Solo Feature for some of its' models. This feature cleans dishware on the top rack only, using a mere 3.2 gallons of water).
With the current kitchen trend of appliance integration, the dish drawer is designed to seamlessly integrate into cabinetry. Small and compact, a single drawer can serve as an additional dishwasher in the kitchen, or handle clean up elsewhere. Many find Fisher and Paykel's single drawer dishwashers convenient when located within a kitchen island or wet bar. At the bar, you can keep stemware and martini glasses clean, keeping the party going.
