Oven on dishwasher - the possibilities

Whether for reasons of saving space or not having to bend so often. Many kitchen customers rely on combinations that were not common before when planning a new kitchen. Some would like to arrange the dishwasher under the oven. We show you here which possibilities there are and if this combination is worthwhile.

Technical aspects

While the oven should not be combined with the refrigerator, this is not a big problem with the dishwasher because the temperature development does not matter here. However, some kitchen manufacturers have problems because the gap size of their dishwashers is not the same size as the ovens. Then you may have to incorporate screens that visually disturb the kitchen.

Reach altitude

You want to install the oven over the dishwasher, because you do not want to bend down anymore? But what about the dishwasher itself? A comfortable height you can then no longer reach for the dishwasher, otherwise the oven must be installed too high. So if you are concerned with convenient operation, it is better to use both devices slightly higher.


For the extremely small kitchen, there is even a combination of dishwasher, oven and hob. Since this combination is no bigger than a normal cooker, you can accommodate even in the smallest kitchen a dishwasher. Of course, this is much smaller and only holds about half of a normal dishwasher.

The oven is not very large in this combination. In both devices, however, the program selection is still very extensive. Price wise, this combination is of course not cheaper than three single comparable devices of this kind. In addition, you still have to stoop constantly, because the dishwasher sits under the oven, directly at ground level.

Tips & Tricks

No matter which variant you prefer, you should make sure that you can get to any device even with the door open. Do not place the oven directly on the inside corner of an L-kitchen, because then you block the doors of the other base cabinets and only approach the stove from one side. The same problem exists with the dishwasher when it is placed in the corner.
