I've now lived with 18" dishwashers in two different houses and I would never go back to a full-size one. I like the drawer dishwashers but they're still more pricey. I'm trying right now to figure out how to improve my small u-shaped kitchen that has 3 doorways on 3 different walls--my U is so small that I really have only a few feet of usable counter space (and a lot of that is taken up in deep corners which is hard for a short person to use effectively). I really appreciate this site for so many ideas-- both realistic and not so much!

For smaller appliances, look for RV appliances.
