What Do You Think of Dishwasher Drawers?

There's some evidence to show that dishwashers consumer less water and energy than handwashing dishes, which is good news for those of us who like to leave a party's worth of dishes to the machine. It seems that drawer-style dishwashers, which have been growing in popularity, are also more energy-efficient.

Dishwasher drawers tend to be smaller than full-size dishwashers, so small city kitchens can still have an itty-bitty dishwasher drawer without sacrificing too much space to a normal one. Drawers like these can also be helpful for people with limited mobility; you don't have to bend over so far to load the dishwasher.

You can also install double drawers, which is very appealing to us. Fill one up with a half load of dishes and run it without wasting water and energy to run the second one.

But we're curious - do you have dishwasher drawers? Do you like them?
