I first noticed draw style dishwashers while poking through the Sears scratch-n-dent store. They had several Fisher/Paykel models in the store. They were priced at a jaw dropping $1200! Yikes! For scratch-n-dent?
A ridiculous price of course but I loved the idea of the draw style. I went online to research Fisher. I learned they are a disaster and that explains why they were on scratch-n-dent. Despite the Beverly Hills price tag, Fisher is the 'Yugo' of dishwashers.
While strolling through Lowe's last week, my eye caught a Kitchenaide drawer style dishwasher. Price of $600. Hmmm. I played with the floor model and it seemed solid and well built. Plus it carries a good warranty from a well known brand. However, when I researched them, they are made by guess who? Yup, Fisher. There is lots of chatter online about the junkyness of Fisher and is this new Kitchenaide going to be a horror show. Turns out maybe not. Yes they are made by Fisher but to specs dictated by KA. Some posters have had problems but nothing compared to the train wreck of Fisher products.

My question is, I really like the design, they make sense, drawers are a lot more functional than traditional dishwashers, and $600 ain't really all that much more than a traditional model. I'm pretty handy and can fix just about anything, (I've fixed plenty of appliances including dwers in the past) so if it needs some tinkering I'm up for it. I just don't want to have an appliance like a Yugo, constantly breaking down and a PITA. Should I go for one? wait for more brands (non-Fisher/Kitchenaide)in drawer style? or forget it and get a basic Whirlpool?
