18-Inch Dishwashers: Small Dishwashers for Slim Spaces
For optimal dishwashing power in a compact package, 18-inch dishwashers are the answer. Perfect to fit anywhere that space is limited and functionality is at a premium, these smaller dishwashers provide full-power and high-heat cleaning with a range of cycles and the options and features a dishwasher must have. At significantly less width than traditional 24-inch washers, the smaller units keep all the performance of a dishwasher in a smaller space. Ideal for replacing older dishwashers that were built to smaller dimensions, the slim design fits almost anywhere that full dishwashing power is needed but space is restricted.
In some tight kitchen areas, such as when remodeling an older home built that was planned and built without a space for a dishwasher, or in a second kitchen in the basement, for example, the trick is to squeeze in the features and amenities of a full modern kitchen in a limited space. Some kitchens are small by necessity, such as those found in:
Campers or RVs
When searching for the best appliances to fit in tight spaces in a small kitchen, 18-inch dishwashers can be the ideal solution. Able to replace old machines that were built to smaller dimensions, or to fit in new construction that doesn't allow the space needed for full-size dishwashers, the modern features and options available on slim design machines are as complete as those found on any dishwasher so you need not sacrifice dishwashing effectiveness for size concerns any longer. Providing all the heat and water pressure power expected from a full-size dishwasher, narrow design models are known for providing outstanding results in clean dishes with smooth, quiet, efficient performance.
Many models of 18" built-in dishwashers available on Living Direct feature energy efficient design to ensure peak efficiency of operations. Built to meet stringent standards of maximum functionality, energy efficient machines are designed to efficiently use resources like electric power and water yet still provide full power and effectiveness of dishwashing performance. Featuring a range of choices in options like digital controls and energy saving cycles, the slim design dishwashers featured here at Living Direct have choices available that are perfect for just about every kitchen.
There are choices available from Living Direct for 18" built-in dishwashers made by quality manufacturers, including the incredibly popular EdgeStar product line. Able to wash up to eight full place settings in these compact machines, the narrow profile dishwashers are available in a range of colors and finishes to fit any room. Most come unfinished on three sides to allow for easy installation, while others are designed to be free standing in the kitchen. Some models are made to be portable for use on your countertop, while others are built-in place as a permanent feature of the kitchen.
Featuring many of the elements and design of a full-sized dishwasher, the slimmer 18-inch units do not sacrifice any interior features to achieve the narrower profile. Most models have two pull out dish racks with cups for silverware and small items. The models available on Living Direct have a variety of choices available in the number of cycles, features of the display and controls, and design and finish that is ideal to fit the unique needs of any kitchen.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
