This post will give some advantages and disadvantages having undercounter dishwashers.

Built-in or undercounter dishwashers designs allow the appliance to take a visual role in the makeup of the kitchen cabinetry. The physical size of the built-in dishwasher is limited to the available space beneath the counters. There is, however, a certain comfort in not having to roll a portable dishwasher into position and attach the water hose to the kitchen sink.

A staple of the well-equipped modern kitchen for decades, the undercounter dishwashers have lessened the time it takes to clean up after a meal for many owners.

The benefits of the appliance have been weighed against perceived cons from many homeowners actually resulting in the removal of the undercounter dishwashers in favor of a free-standing unit in some cases. Many times, the under-counter plumbing required with the integrated appliance can develop leaks that cause damage to the structural integrity of the counter construction before the problem is discovered.

With the majority of undercounter dishwasher designs, the unit expels heat and humidity directly below the edge of the kitchen counter top. For homemakers wishing to use the counter top for other cooking projects, this hot discharge can be an annoyance. When deciding on an appliance upgrade, the added expense of replacing the undercounter dishwashers can often prove to be overwhelming.

The built-in design of the undercounter dishwashers often adds cost to the repair bill in the event of a breakdown. A portable unit, on the other hand, can be transported to a repair facility. The surrounding cabinet can also aid in quieting an undercounter dishwasher, making the chore of doing dishes practically unheard of for some owners.
