A Guide to Built-In & Portable Dishwashers, Lincoln, Nebraska

Dishwashers are among the most convenient appliances available to homeowners. What many may not realize is that there are both built-in and portable models on the market. Although they perform the same job, these two devices differ in other ways. Here’s what you need to know to make the decision that’s best for you.

Built-In Dishwashers

Lincoln, NE applianceThe built-in model is a traditional style found in most kitchens. It’s permanently situated under the counter and requires direct electric and plumbing connections to work properly. Since you don’t have to connect it directly to the sink, you’re free to use both elements simultaneously. The standard built-in appliance measures 24 inches wide by 35 inches high. The smaller 18-inch option is less common but fits nicely into a more compact kitchen.

Since the built-in is set in place, you don’t have to worry about finding a separate location to store it, and you don’t have to move it back and forth. The setup process is more involved and requires removal of the previous device along with connection to the plumbing. This can take anywhere from an hour to 90 minutes.

Portable Dishwashers

Portable appliances are free-standing products with four wheels that you can push anywhere. They’re an effortless choice for homeowners who have limited space in their kitchen but still want the convenience of hands-free cleaning. Using it requires a connection to the sink’s faucet, which means you can’t use both at once.

The average size of the portable dishwasher is 18 inches. This compact size makes it a great choice for renters who want something they can easily transport from one property to another. It also works well in condominiums and small commercial kitchens. Since the device is not installed, you can push it out of the way when it’s not in use.
