If You Like Dishwashers in a Drawer, You’ll Appreciate The New 36-inch Wide Unit

I remember when New Zealand manufacturer Fisher & Paykel brought the DishDrawer (dishwasher in a drawer) to the U.S. market in 1998. The concept was freaking cool! Stylistically, it rocked, plus it was ergonomically preferable because you could install one (or two) at waist height, which resulted in less bending. But based on reviews and my conversations with homeowners who own one and architects who have included them in houses, performance has been spotty and uneven. I still love the concept. The company has doubled down on the original product line: it has added a 36-inch-wide version to the existing 24-inch unit. It’s still energy and water efficient, using as little as 1.95 gallons of water, but the wider profile means it will hold larger pots, plates, and platters up to 12½ inches in size. www.fisherpaykel.com.
