Definitely w/d unit. You can get a countertop dishwasher if you really need one. There are some around $240 not too bad.

SPT SD-2202W Countertop Dishwasher with Delay Start, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KVP90BE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_XJwPDb9SCEFBF

With all the blowouts and spit up you’ll want to be able to do some quick laundry everyday and that would def be a pain if you had to go to a laundromat or built in facilities at a complex.

Something I discovered a few months ago: Countertop dishwashers exist! I bought one, it's great. It hooks up to the sink faucet for water and discharge, and it's effectively equivalent to the top rack of a full-size dishwasher, so it handles most things other than large pots and pans.

I live in a studio apartment and it didn't have a washer so I boughy one after too many times not washing the dishes.

Here is the one I bought:

This is what we got. We rent a house that doesn't have a dishwasher. This way we can take it with us when we move.

u/void_fraction · 3 pointsr/AskSF

I think it might have been this, but that's much more retro https://www.amazon.com/SPT-SD-2201S-Countertop-Dishwasher-Silver/dp/B004N4MSPO

Others are giving you good advice on the FF front; here is dishwasher advice (if you have looked at these already, my apologies). I have lived in tiny-kitchened apartments for a while and only graduated to a full size portable dishwasher recently. Prior to this, I owned several (in succession, they lasted about 2 years before dying) of these countertop dishwashers. They are a lifesaver for apartment living - about the size of a large microwave or toaster oven, the height calibrated to fit in the average gap between countertop and cabinets.

Cons: They are not as nice as a full size dishwasher - small in capacity (maybe 4 place settings at a time) and can't handle the worst of the dirty (no baked on/caked on food). Also: getting parts for repairs is somewhere between impossible and HAHAHAHAHA no. So in many ways, if it breaks outside of warranty you have to throw it out (and because the price of a repair guy call might be nearly equal to the price of a new one). But - at $200-250, it is something that can be budgeted for to replace.

Pros: Future marital bliss (drastically reduce arguing over dishes). You don't have to do nearly as many dishes by hand. Confound the MIL (just put them in the dishwasher! What dishwasher?) You don't have to do nearly as many dishes by hand. Did I mention, you don't have to do nearly as many dishes by hand?

Look on amazon for "countertop dishwashers" - there are a bunch of varying quality around that $225 price point, and I haven't had one for several years so I don't know which is currently the best.

I've seen other possibilities for small kitchens but not necessarily under the sink. There are countertop sized dishwashers you might be able to figure out a way to install under your sink, or in another spot, and at least one company (Bosh) makes a dishwasher that is 45CM (18") high. Google small dishwashers. Here are some ideas to get you started:

I bought a special bucket that's got brushes built into it that I use for washing just a couple dishes.

It's got a wash side and a rinse side and only uses a couple gallons of water to do the job.

Damm I missed them 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

That prestige pan does look nice.

Here is the rock tawa link : Rock Tawa Dosa Tawa 12 Inch Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet https://www.amazon.in/dp/B01M0YZBMM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_HdfnDbVNYCXEY

You can check other products by them under their profile page. Cast iron products usually don't require warranty unless it's a faulty piece, which again can be replaced directly by amazon with 30days.

I do have a few steel utensils from Solimo, amazon brand and you are correct they are flimsy good for serving and storing

u/bobbywaz · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Everyone seems to doing the water filter, so I'll give you the run down on the portable dishwasher. You've got two choices, [countertop] (https://www.amazon.com/SPT-SD-2201S-Countertop-Dishwasher-Silver/dp/B004N4MSPO/ref=sr_1_8?s=appliances&ie=UTF8&qid=1540462717&sr=1-8&keywords=portable+dishwasher) or a [portable full size on wheels] (https://www.amazon.com/SPT-SD-9241W-Portable-Dishwasher-18-Inch/dp/B00EHLM7MW/ref=sr_1_7?s=appliances&ie=UTF8&qid=1540462717&sr=1-7&keywords=portable+dishwasher) (read: still smaller than most built-in dishwashers).

Both of these usually come with [an adapter] (https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61a5%2BWfHmIL._SY679_.jpg) that you can replace your kitchen / bathroom sink [aerator] (https://i.ytimg.com/vi/DJhtyzuB0Xw/maxresdefault.jpg) with so that you just click on a hose and have water for it. Then there's a hose that you drop in the sink to drain it. That will look like [this] (http://portableandcool.com/files/images/spt-countertop-dishwasher-4.jpg)

For a few dollars more you can hook either up underneath the sink to a [really cheap tailpiece] (https://www.lowes.com/pd/Keeney-1-1-2-in-Plastic-Direct-Connect-Branch-Tailpiece-7-8-in-OD-Outlet/1088263?cm_mmc=SCE_PLA-_-RoughPlumbingElectrical-_-TubularDrainage-_-1088263:Keeney&CAWELAID=&kpid=1088263&CAGPSPN=pla&store_code=1106&k_clickID=go_625853472_34614720070_111134499070_pla-259817147488_c_9004401&gclid=Cj0KCQjw08XeBRC0ARIsAP_gaQCOam6hOkc3CaZ838vnULeta2tul2NphISDtjmdPdxTSa1wq8dIZS8aAh-hEALw_wcB) that will allow you to have a permanent drain just below your sink.

You would also need a permanent water source, so you would need a [splitter valve like this] (https://images.homedepot-static.com/productImages/3fc80bc6-0692-478d-853c-0a4b7f6e9d38/svn/rough-brass-brasscraft-r1701lrx-r1-64_1000.jpg) and some teflon tape to run the hose to the dishwasher with.

That would look like [this] (https://learn.compactappliance.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/countertop-dishwasher-kitchen.jpg), but keep in mind would need to drill a hole either through the countertop or sides of the cabinets. In my case my dishwasher sits next to my refrigerator, so I drilled a hole in the side of the cabinet the fridge is covering and you cannot see it at all.

The biggest difference between the two is when the dishwasher is running, you can wash food/other dishes in the sink if you go the second route. Otherwise the sink is typically out of commission for an hour+ which is annoying when you're trying to cook food or do other dishes.

Typically the dishwashers come with all other hoses/parts needed other than what I've described, and the parts I have described are all available in the plumbing section of a home depot/lowes for cheap.

u/GamerKormai · 2 pointsr/BipolarReddit

It's basically a 1/3 size that hooks up to your sink faucet. Hopefully amazon links are allowed.

u/SirEDCaLot · 2 pointsr/pics

If space is the problem, just remove some of your cabinets. Or get a countertop dishwasher :)

u/OriginalSyn · 2 pointsr/Frugal

I'll link you one but then you're going to have to learn to fish for your self.

Yup.

This tiny dishwasher could be your best friend, too.

u/iHelix150 · 1 pointr/ReviewThis

Apartment doesn't come with a built in dishwasher?

Don't Let That Stop You (that's five links there)

Maybe I'm just spoiled by having a dishwasher, but I think handwashing dishes is flat out a terrible idea. They don't get nearly as clean, soap doesn't kill nearly as many germs as high temp water, and you waste a LOT more water/soap handwashing dishes. Not to mention the time you spend washing them.

This is a problem our society's technology has solved. I see no reason anyone shouldn't avail themselves of the solution.

u/Boston_Jason · 1 pointr/funny

Get that tabletop dishwasher. Best $200 I have spent.

SPT Countertop Dishwasher, Silver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004N4MSPO/

u/damechou · 1 pointr/Detroit
u/intricatecloud · 1 pointr/AmItheAsshole

I also got into arguments frequently with my partner, and then I learned about Counter Top Dishwashers (my landlord won't let me install a full size one) that just screw onto your faucet like this SPT Countertop Dishwasher, Silver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004N4MSPO

Its a bit bigger than a microwave and takes up valuable counter space but I found not fighting with my partner more valuable than the counter space I lost.

u/flattop100 · 1 pointr/Appliances

Always try Amazon: this showed up in the google search results.

u/CapnMagnitude · 1 pointr/pics

Dude, having washed dishes by hand in every place I've lived after being on my own, this countertop dishwasher is probably the best purchase I've made for myself. Completely worth the cost and it pays for itself in time saved alone within one month I'd say. Load it right, you can wash 3 soup bowls, 6 glasses, 8 plates, and silverware, plus a few odds and ends. It uses less water than if I wash by hand, and takes about 80 minutes to do a complete cycle. It's not loud, I can run plastics through it with no melting. Another added benefit is that when you haven't done dishes in a week, your kitchen sink stays clean/not smelling like nasty food because the mess is hidden.

Seriously, I can't say enough good things about this dishwasher. Get one.

u/brazendynamic · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes
u/AEnKE9UzYQr9 · 1 pointr/AskNYC

I've been using this one for almost four years and it still works great. Quite possibly the best $200 I've ever spent in terms of cumulative time saved per dollar.

u/leotonius · 1 pointr/vermont

Yup! The model I bought worked great for about 5 years before our current place (with hard water) killed the drain pump. Well worth the investment!

Oh, and I checked my purchase history and I paid a bit more than $180 for this, but still totally worth it:

u/doomrabbit · 1 pointr/homeowners

I have this model for a year and like it. Two people as well. I think mine is a rebadge of yours, racks and everything are highly similar.

Thoughts, pro:

High quality metal interior. Feels small restaurant grade. Gets dishes very clean. No second rack, so you can pile high if need be, and no low pressure kinda-wash you get from top rack. No need to wait to run it, one meal makes a pot, silverware, dishes, cutting board, knife = one load. Faster to load and unload with small size.

Cons are size, if you use a bunch of big pots, I've taken to hand-washing my big pots because running a full load for a handful of pans is silly. Also, measure your countertop space. Mine did not fit under the counter, this thing is the size of an over-stove microwave. Had to rig an odd mini table for it. Taller than many countertops.
