63 Movable Compact Appliances

From Briefcase-Sized Dishwashers to Mobile Breakfast Makers

— June 14, 2013 — Eco
These convenient compact appliances are a resourceful way to perform kitchen chores no matter where you are. If you like to camp or go on road trips, these miniature kitchen features help you do it while keeping the amenities of home.

Spending time away from home is supposed to be relaxing, but when you find yourself without food, clean dishes and coffee, things can turn bitter. These compact appliances are small enough to travel, but still powerful enough to serve their intended purpose. You can count on mini refrigerator containers to keep your meals fresh and when it's time to start cooking, the finger food grill is small, but mighty.

Enjoy a perfectly brewed cup of coffee with an elegant low-tech brewer, and clean everything up with a petite dishwasher. These compact appliances will provide you with the comforts of home in bite size!
