I was on our Vacuumland site and there was a post for new Japanese vacuums. Clicked on it and it went to youtube. While watching the video, I saw this link for a Japanese Dishwasher. I would love to have this nice toy to play with. Enjoy

we only run ours once or twice weekly now since empty nesters unless it's a holiday, or gathering, so could actually suffice, but I'd want it built in.
So, Fisher & Paykel have that.

Been to Japan many times and spent time in their massive electrical departments. There are no full size dishwashers available in Japan, only these plastic bench top models. I guess most Japanese homes are very small so no room to full size dishwasher. Most Japanese homes have a top load washer outside or on the balcony. They only have cold fill and all Japanese wash in cold water only.

Looks like a fun little machine.

I like that it has a semi-permanent water connection despite being a countertop model.  Small thing but would go a long way toward making it more convenient to use.

they also have drawer dishwashers and others available

Ikea Japan sells them as do many other manufacturers there.

second link below takes you to a page with three different types of dishwashers available in Japan.

I remember an article from maybe 15 years ago which talked about how all the (wealthy) first world regions had moved to dishwashers except for Japan--it specifically stated that the gummy rice residue was too tough to shift (also talking about small kitchens etc etc). Don't recall if the article was "gender-roles" focused, "appliance industry" focused, "Japanese small living spaces" focused or what. Believe it mentioned that Panasonic tried one and it flopped badly.

I know from personal experience that the chinese - at least in the middle class - do barely ever own dishwashers.

They don't trust them.

To quote the grandma of my exchange student who was mainly tasked with cooking and washing up in my guest family: "Our items are to odd shaped and to greasy for me to trust them to some blind and dumb machine that just sprinkles them with water."

I noticed that too, since it's made for very small kitchens, I figured it was to save space so it wouldn't hang out so far when opened.

I would like to try the Tetra dishwasher.

Here's the link.

Or the Klarstein dishwasher. This one seems to have a very good washing action.

Interesting that the Panasonic has 3 spray arms, plus fixed jets for the upper rack at the back!


Yeah neat little DW, I'd like to try it out!   Looks like on Amazon (Japan) they are priced between 54,000 - 67,000 Yen ($500 - $616 US) depending on model.
