Portable dishwashers

Hi,

When our house was built, folks had a lot fewer dishwashers. So, the kitchen isn't really set up to install a built in.

We have a portable now, but it's starting to show its age. I've looked around, and there are a few available, but nobody seems to have them in the store.

When I've stopped in there are none on display, and several sites (Lowes, HD, and even Sears) say not available for pickup. (Sears will let you pick one up there, but it will be a site to store order. )

Main brand names seem to be GE and Whirlpool, and they're probably fine -- I just want to actually see one for myself!

I could probably make a cabinet for a built in -- lots of articles on the net.

Just kind of a rant,unless somebody has a great idea

We had a Sears (I think) portable when we moved in here in '96. We had it set up in a sink in the utility room. It was loud.

Fast forward to our remodel. We installed 2, count 'em. 2 Bosch units. You must be near by, and listen closely to hear them run. They were only 4 times the price of the Sears....

I see scratch and dent units at Sears pretty reasonable if noise isn't an issue:

Otherwise, if this will be "permanent" and you are handy with the cabinetry, spend some extra and sleep well as your dishes are silently brought back up to spec.....

I would check to see if a regular under cabinet would fit in your current portable cabinet.. I believe all dishwashers are the same dimensions basically..

Be easier than building a new cabinet
