Fisher & Paykel DishDrawer Series DD24SCB7
Though drawer dishwashers have had issues with reliability, it seems newer models like the DD24SCB7 from Fisher & Paykel may have finally resolved many of the major issues. This model addresses some of the complaints associated with older models, and so far, seems to actually have a good track record for reliability. This is great news for those who want the efficient, stylish design of this single drawer dishwasher.
The DD24SCB7 has room for seven place settings, and has adjustable racks that are easy to load and can accommodate long-stemmed wine glasses. Contrary to most modern dishwashers, cycles are relatively short. There are nine wash cycles to choose from, and several features and settings such as a sanitizing rinse, delay start, eco option, and child lock. A unique feature is the flow-through detergent dispenser, which ensures that detergent is fully dissolved before entering the tub.
This dishwasher has a dedicated heating element to make sure dishes are completely dry, overall the controls are easy to use, and operation is quiet. Though the DD24SCB7 is not as affordable as a regular dishwasher, this alternative design has many benefits especially now that it seems to be more reliable, and it would make a very attractive addition to any kitchen.
