A countertop dishwasher is a great solution for a small kitchen space with no floor-room to spare. These cute little units are typically about 21" wide, 20" deep and just over 17" tall - a perfect fit between the counter and the upper cabinets. They are sized to accommodate around 6 place settings and offer almost as many features as full-sized units. Countertop units don't usually have a plumbing hookup to be installed, but a hose that connects directly to the kitchen sink faucet during operation. Users report that they are very easy to set up and use, and find them very durable. A countertop dishwasher will cost around $250 on average, and users feel that it is definitely worth the money. Check out the top picks below, particularly the Magic Chef model, which is praised in user opinions.
