This combination of refrigerator and dishwasher has been specially developed for Chinese kitchens, which have severely limited space. So far, dishwashers are not the norm in China, and this combination appliance offers the possibility of integrating a dishwasher within the fridge platform as a space-saving solution in any existing kitchen. The French door refrigerator in the upper half is easily accessible; the dishwasher has room in a spacious drawer and can be loaded conveniently.
Statement by the Jury
At first glance, the combination of dishwasher and refrigerator in one appliance seems surprising. However, it offers an aesthetic and functional solution for lack of space in Chinese kitchens.
