I was the contractor on this project. The dumbwaiter was sold & installed by Nationwide Lifts. They may have other types available but there are other manufacturers too. Website for Nationwide Lifts: Other companies such as Ameriglide make these units too. I know that there are manufacturers that make hydraulic units. I chose this one because of state codes that I had to adhere to.

Dumbwaiters are not inexpensive to install. There are several manufacturers that have different units for different applications. Here in Oregon we had to have a commercial elevator license too. That added cost because of the safety requirements but in my opinion you need that on any device that moves to protect kids, pets, etc. For just the unit I believe we were around $14K installed by us and others. There was special framing and fire codes that we had to adhere to also. Then we had all of the finish and custom cabinets that added more cost for the finished product. Let me know if you have any other questions.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz added this to Dumbwaiter
Before adding a dumbwaiter to your kitchen, check your local building codes. Fire travels quickly upward in the closed compartment of a dumbwaiter or laundry chute, so fire doors and fireproof materials are required.
