Dishwasher questions -- trying to avoid a portable machine
January 23, 2014 4:18 PM Subscribe
There is a great spot in my small kitchen next to my refrigerator for a dishwasher. I would like to avoid one of those portable ones with wheels that you have to roll out and hook up to the sink. What are my options?

I would prefer it to be one that I can leave in the same spot and just turn on. I am not against hiring a plumber to assist with this endeavor. However, I talked to a guy at Home Depot and he told me what I want to do is impossible, and that I either need to remodel my kitchen or buy a portable one. This is because the non-portable machines are not built to be used without a counter around them. Any kitchen contractors or plumbers out there know anything about this? Could I "directly connect" a portable one so that I wouldn't have to deal with rolling it around and connecting a hose to my sink across the kitchen?
