This refrigerator style tends to be wider than a comparable bottom freezer or top freezer model, so they work best in kitchens with space to spare (compare side-by-side vs French door refrigerators in our article).

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Jan 2, 2023 9:15 AM 


 

If you live in a condo or apartment that doesn't have a dishwasher, or need a dishwasher for an office kitchen, a portable dishwasher might be the best option.

In an older home or other areas with limited cabinet space, a portable dishwasher can provide the cleaning power of a built-in dishwasher without the hassle of installing it into the cabinetry and installing the necessary plumbing.
