The KitchenAid And Fisher Paykel Two Drawer Dishwasher

From Knights of Ivalice

id="mod_42289">A New Idea in Appliances Always Intrigues MeYears ago when I first saw the Fisher Paykel DishDrawer, the two drawer dishwasher, I was interested. Was it an improvement? It certainly had a high end look: sleek, European styling with clean lines. It looked well made, and because of their wasing machine, I knew they were an innovative company. I like new, and I like better, but new and not better is common in appliance history.

The Fisher Paykel: The Drawers Are Identical

It Is Two Less-Than-Half-Size Dishwashers
Really what the KitchenAid stacking dishwasher (which is made by Fisher Paykel, and is just about exactly like the Fisher Paykel DishDrawer) is is two separate and stacked small dishwashers. Both drawers, together, do not hold as much as a well designed full size dishwasher. I just spoke to a couple who recently moved into a new multi-million dollar home equipped with the KitchenAid drawer dishwasher. They have had the repair people out twice in a few months. The builder did not do his research, and this couple will probably replace it soon. More aggravating, though, than the need for repairs is the limited height of objects that can be put into the dishwasher. They are very unhappy with it.

I must say that I know another older couple who do little cooking, and, well, do little eating, too, who have the Fisher Paykel. They are satisfied with theirs. They do like the fact that they can wash a half load (something, though, that even lower end dishwashers, like Frigidaire, do now). These are gentle people, and they did not mention if they have had to have it repaired.

Lastly, and this is a bit of an aside, for the builder of the multi million dollar home mentioned above: You created a large home built for entertaining with huge public areas and an abundance of outside space that could easily accommodate two hundred people. The kitchen is spacious and there is a wine cooler, undercounter ice maker, and 48 inch wide professional dual fuel stove. There should have been two dishwashers: A regular high end dishwasher for when just the family is there, and an undercounter commercial dishwasher the help and caterers can use when there is large scale entertaining.

Unfortunately, for most consumers, the KitchenAid drawer dishwasher is not a good choice (This was a little hard for me to write because I like to write about appliances that I like. I did have a request for my thoughts on this dishwasher, so to whoever requested that I write about this, here it is . . . just for you).

Usually I do not learn post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do it!

I am astounded by the comments! Our Fisher Paykel is 15 years old and has had one repair. This was due to putting stainless steel scrubbers in and little pieces from the scrubbers accumulated in the bottom---my fault. We love it and plan to put another two drawer one in our new house. This is perfect for the two of us. Don't have dirty dishes sitting in the dishwasher for a couple of days waiting for it to get full .
