Here is our new Bosch Dishwasher that takes a panel. We are trying to keep our kitchen as period correct as possible. In doing this we decided to buy a dishwasher that is not visible. Here is what it looks like with the door closed.
Here is a view of the dishwasher partially open to give you a perspective on how the panel is mounted to the dishwasher door. Basically you select your settings with the door open like this and once you shut the door, the dishwasher starts.
This can opener we bought from ebay. It was made in the late teens to 1920's sometime. It is made from cast iron and mounts firmly on the wall. I had to strip three layers of paint from it which took me about six hours. I painted it in its origional finish.
Here is what the can opener looks like in the "ready to use position".
