A slimline dishwasher is the ideal choice if your kitchen’s quite compact, because you only need 45cm of cupboard space to house it. To see roughly what 45cm looks like, hold up a tea towel at its narrowest edge. That’s all the space you need.
A dishwasher used to be thought of as a luxury household item, rather than a time-saving necessity. While the cost of the average unit has come down in recent years (starting at around $400 - $600), people still think they’re expensive to run.
