So you've recently moved into your new apartment only to find that you're missing a few appliance essentials: a washer, dryer, and maybe a dishwasher. While you can get by without them, you don't have to miss out just because you're low on space. You can purchase compact versions that take up little space but still get the job done. Plus, they cost less than most full-sized appliances.
Below we've listed a few compact appliances that you can use to replace the traditional washer, dryer, oven, and more.
Small spaces equal small kitchens, meaning that you're more likely to be missing appliances such as a dishwasher. You can wash dishes by hand or you can purchase a countertop portable dishwasher such as this Koldfront model on sale at CompactAppliance—an online retailer that specializes in many of the items on this list. It has six wash cycles, fits under most cabinetry, and doesn't require permanent installation to work, so you can take it from apartment to apartment. Click the link above to view the full deal details.
This deal at Amazon for $129 with free shipping is the lowest price we've found on the Nuwave infrared oven (Macy's has it for $139 down from $169). You can replace your conventional oven with this smaller option that promises to cook food up to 50 percent faster and leave it moist and flavorful thanks to convection technology. We can't attest to this claim, but the customer reviews are mostly positive.
This microwave can't heat as much food as other larger models can, but just because it's small doesn't mean it lags behind the competition. We haven't checked out this microwave officially, but it's super low price and mostly positive customer rating make it worthy of a look. It's on sale at Walmart for $39 with free in-store pickup available.
You don't have to go out of your way for the perfect burger. Lodge Logic makes this cast iron reversible grill and griddle that you place over your stove for different cooking options. It also has a grease gutter to collect unnecessary fats for healthier meals. This deal through Amazon cuts the grill down to $38 and includes free shipping.
Chances are that your new refrigerator won't come with a built-in ice dispenser. You can get a few ice cube trays and wait around with your warm drink for them to freeze, or you can get this Koldfront portable ice maker now on sale at CompactAppliance for $132 plus free shipping. This is a great product for people who like to frequently entertain guests, or who just like their beverages extra cold.
The final piece you might be missing is a washer or dryer. You can check out your local laundromat, but that would require leaving the house. The Wonderwash portable washer on sale at CompactAppliance for $50 with free shipping isn't automatic—you need to crank the handle to spin the body—but it gets the job done. Because the washer is manual, it's also ultra portable. You can take it from apartment to apartment or on long trips without having to deal with wires.
