The dish drawer is a type of the dishwashing machine invented, designed, and manufactured by Fisher and Paykel. The idea was to create a two-drawer dishwasher, looking a bit like the filing cabinets that were ubiquitous in offices in the 1980s. It would be more ergonomic than conventional dishwashers, avoiding bending down as much to load and unload and washing a single drawer of dishes and cutlery would use less water. Today, the concept behind the dish drawer is "to use compact technologies to provide a very space-efficient dishwasher."
