Dishwashers make cleanup easy and they're a great addition to your kitchen space. Unfortunately, some kitchens are short on space, and they can't accommodate a standard-sized dishwasher. Slimline dishwashers were created to fit in tight spaces and they're a great option for people who don't need a dishwasher with a large capacity.

Many popular brands have a slimline model on the market, but they're not all created equally. Here's our lineup of the best slimline dishwashers of 2021, so you can pick the one that fits your kitchen and lifestyle best.

How do I choose a dishwasher?
When shopping for a dishwasher, it's important to take several factors into consideration. Measure the space in your kitchen to ensure that your new dishwasher will fit and pay attention to the features included in each dishwasher. Select one that has features you value like a delay wash option, heated dry, or NSF certification.

Slimline dishwashers are a great option for kitchens that don't have a lot of space. They are the same height as standard models, but they fit into smaller spaces, which can be perfect for an apartment or smaller home.
