In our kitchen here in the flat, we’ve got a slim Indesit dishwasher.
Slim in this context means that it’s 45cm wide rather than 60cm.
I bought it because my kitchen wasn’t big enough for a normal one, and at the time I was living alone here.
However, even though there’s now five of us, it still keeps up surprisingly well. Sure, we have to turn it on almost every night, but that’s it.
Given that most households consist of less than five people, I don’t understand why so many people buy full-sized dishwashers. I know they’re not any more expensive, but they do consume more energy and water, apart from taking up space.
