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?
