Happy Holidays to Me!!! This was my gift to myself when I came into some unexpected cash. It arrived on 12/29/15. It's brand new and so I will come back and update after I've had it for a while, but here are my thoughts and observations so far...The Outer box did have a gouge in it, but the inner box was in perfect condition and the unit itself is well protected. The unit was in perfect condition coming out of the box.So far I love my new SPT countertop dishwasher. I've had full sized dishwashers in the past and I've lived in situations where I had to hand-wash dishes. Like most people, I prefer a dishwasher partly because doing dishes is a chore and partly because a dishwasher just gets the dishes cleaner than you ever will doing them by hand. I've been hand-washing for the last 6 months. I'm renting a small house that was built in the 1920s and there is no room in the kitchen for a full size dishwasher and so I began researching countertop options. I was pleased by the number of positive reviews for this unit, and it was on sale so I went ahead and got it. It arrived a full day before Amazon said it would - that's always nice!OK, I'm going to go through a pretty thorough review here because it seems that many people don't provide accurate or complete information. So, this is accurate and as complete as I can be...UNIT MEASUREMENTSThe unit as it measures in my home: 17.25 (H) X 21.5 (W) X 19.75 (D).The power cord is about 65" long (it has many bends from how it's packaged and so it cannot be completely straightened)The hoses (which come already connected to the sink attachment and are also coiled and will not straighten completely) are about 60" long.The length of the power cord and hoses allows for some flexibility in placement relative to the sink, but you will not be able to set it up across the room from the sink unless you're planning to put it near the sink for each use.According to the product description, the unit weighs 48 lbs. I lift 30-lb bags of dog food with some regularity, and also just bought a 50-lb bag of ice melt. From comparison (without putting it on a scale), I'd say it is right around the 50-lb mark. This is empty, with no dishes and no water inside. So as you decide where you're going to put it, if you're using a portable rack or other device, make sure it can hold at least 100 lbs - 50 for the unit, plus 8 or 9 lbs for the water, plus the weight of your dishes (another 8-10 lbs) - total about 70 lbs when full and in use, plus some cushion just to be safe.UNIT NUANCESThe door has a very secure snap closure and you must pull with a pretty good force to open it. I'm hoping that will loosen up just a little as time goes on because right now I have to put downward pressure on top of the unit in order to open the door - I've got my unit sitting on a thin-legged metal rack (see pics) and so the rack wobbles a bit if I pull hard without the downward support to hold the rack still. The shelf unit I'm using has metal mesh shelves. In order to create a flat surface, I also put a piece of plywood down and covered that with aluminum foil to create a moisture barrier to the wood. Then I put a towel down just be a little more attractive to look at.My dinner plates are 11 inches in diameter. Slanting them forward a bit allows them to fit just fine. The description for the unit indicates that 10-inch plates will fit without a need for slanting. I would say that's accurate.DETERGENT/DRYING AIDI'm using Cascade Complete gel packets. This product has Jet Dry in it and so I do not need to add extra drying agent. This packet fits perfectly into the larger side of the detergent compartment. NOTE: because you are not using an extra/separate drying agent (if you use a product that has it already included), the light telling you that you are low on drying agent will be lit every time the power is on. Ignore it.WASH TIMESMany people have complained about the length of the cycles. I'm not sure why there is so much complaint or confusion. It takes as long as a full sized dishwasher to clean the dishes. And furthermore, the instruction manual has a page (see pics I've included) that tells you exactly how long each cycle type will take. There are several cycles:Heavy/Pots & Pans (100 minutes)Normal (85 minutes)Light (75 minutes)Glass (70 minutes)Speed (45 minutes)and Pre-wash/soak (10 minutes).The Heavy cycle has a double wash cycle.The Heavy, Normal, Light and Glass cycles all include a heated dry cycle.The speed and the pre-wash do not include any drying.The other major difference in the cycles is the temperature of the wash/rinse water:Heavy and Normal having the highest (wash 131*F and rinse 149*F)The Speed has the lowest temperatures (wash 122*F and rinse 131*F).Even the heavy and normal options are not technically reaching a temperature that is considered sterilizing (170* or hotter), but it's much closer than you could get compared to hand-washing.I've only used the Normal cycle, which according to the manual is an 85-minute wash. I've done 3 loads so far. The first I did with hot tap water. I made sure the water was at its hottest before turning off the tap to connect the hose and turning it back on. The dishwasher will heat the water to the correct temperature for the option you've chosen, but clearly starting with already hot water will shorten the time to heat the water. So, starting with very hot tap water, the Normal wash cycle from the moment I pressed the start button to the moment the end-of-cycle beep happened was 87 minutes. The next load I did, I used the cold tap water. I was curious to see if there would be a major difference. There was. This time it took 125 minutes (just over 2 hours). So using cold water is an option, but it will add a little more than 30 minutes to the process because the unit needs to first heat the water in order to properly wash the dishes. The third load I did (yesterday) I used the hot tap, though I didn't give it time to get to its absolute hottest. This load took exactly 90 minutes - just 5 minutes longer than the manual suggests. Again, this is the typical length of a full-sized dishwasher on a normal cycle as well.DRY DISHESThe Normal cycle that I'm using includes dry time. I've made a point to be standing at the dishwasher when the end-of-cycle beep sounds so that I could see if the dishes are in fact dry. I've interrupted the beep to open the door. The ceramic dishes (plates, bowls), metal dog food bowls, plastic cups and silverware are all dry to the touch (and baked hot). The tupperware type pieces tend to still have some water/steam on them. But that is also typical of most full size dishwashers. Letting the dishes sit in the rack, with the door open for 20-30 minutes and all dishes are completely dry and cool enough to put away.NOISEThe sound of the unit in cycle (the swish of your dishes being cleaned) is very quiet. I cannot hear it outside the kitchen, even from the adjacent room. The only time it seems loud is when it's draining water into the sink. It sounds like someone just turned on your tap to full - so if you have a metal sink, it's water hitting metal. If you have a porcelain sink, it's water hitting porcelain. If you want to assess that volume before you buy, just turn your tap on full and walk into the next room. Better yet, be in the other room and have someone else turn it on so you can hear what that initial water-hitting-surface sounds like because that's the loudest moment.The end-of-cycle beep is a repeated beep that lasts just 8 seconds. I was awake and listening for the beep from my bedroom (just 2 rooms away) and almost missed it. It definitely would not disturb sleep unless you're sleeping in the kitchen or are super, hyper-sensitive to any kind of noise while sleeping - and I'm a light sleeper.GETTING IT HOOKED UPOK, so I'm a 5'2" woman. I was able to lift the unit from the floor to a step stool and then from the stool to the rack on which it sits (see pics). It would definitely be easier with a second person because it's a bit bulky and awkward. But I didn't have anyone available to help and I was able to manage. I used the door handle and the metal lip at the top of the back of the unit for hand-holds. Remember to LIFT WITH YOUR KNEES - it is heavy enough to cause pain or injury to a back if you are already weak in that area or have a previous injury.The adapter has TWO washers - a thin one that is well-seated into the adapter and a thicker one that easily falls out. When I first connected to my faucet, I thought the thick one was from my faucet and so removed it out of the way. The test run leaked a lot around the faucet. I then put that thick washer on top of the thin one and reattached the adapter with both washers in place. NO MORE LEAKING at the faucet!!!!I connected the hoses to the back of the unit as directed. I hand-tightened both. I ran a 10-minute pre-wash cycle to test for leaks. The drain hose leaked. I disconnected it, turned the unit for better access, rather than trying to just reach behind, made sure the connection was seated properly, hand-tightened and then used a pliers to gently tighten. I got another full turn (or 2) before it felt fully tightened - careful not to over tighten as it is plastic and that can break if tightened too far. I also wrapped that connection with some plumbers tape just for good measure. I ran another pre-wash (10-minute) cycle NO LEAKS anywhere! Now I was ready to do a proper load of dishes.CLEANING THE DISHESI feed my dogs using a food puzzle toy (Kongs) which involves mixing their kibble with soft foods such as pumpkin puree or yogurt. It's difficult to get that all out and properly cleaned by hand. I had several of those that needed cleaning. I also washed their regular food bowls - the green one (in the pic) had fish oil and cranberry powder residue that I've been unable to get fully cleaned off for the last 6 months (that's 6 months of residue!). The Kongs and the bowls (and the rest of the dishes) came out looking like new! The residue was gone and there was no weird film that others have mentioned they've experienced. I think they may be using too much detergent, or not using any kind of drying aid at all.You will need to rinse off all large food particles. Remember, this portable unit is not connected to a garbage disposal and so cannot cope with large chunks of food particles. But, sauce residue, chocolate powder caked on a spoon, cheese and egg stuck on a spatula - all came off no problem.There is a 3-part filter system and you will likely need to clean it with some regularity (every few months) to keep the dishwasher from getting gummed up.BETWEEN USESThe hoses are pressurized and so you only need to turn the faucet on a little to get it set. You can leave the faucet on all night if you start the dishwasher at bedtime as you will not be using/running water all night due to the pressurized hose.Be sure to TURN OFF THE FAUCET before you try to unhook the hose from the faucet. Also, be sure to PRESS THE RED BUTTON and wait for the water to drain before disconnecting the hose from the faucet. Once disconnected, you'll want to hold the end down and the length of the hose up to drain the last of the water that's in there before tucking the hose into its storage position - this is simply to avoid drips.Final note: the unit was a little damp inside as were the hoses upon arrival. I believe this is from testing at the factory before packaging. Many have mentioned it. Also, the unit and the hoses smell like new appliance. I can't smell it unless I'm right next to it, and I expect that after I've had it out and in use for a month or two, that smell will be gone.So far, I am super happy with this unit - the ease of setting up, the quality of the clean. I will check in again in few months to update.

My dislike of doing dishes turned most of the counter space of my small Manhattan kitchen into physics-defying stacks of procrastination. This countertop dishwasher takes up about 60% of usable counter space in my apartment, a sacrifice I'm willing to make but for city dwellers, definitely measure it out.This unit is perfect for one to two people. My loaner husband no longer lives next door to me so I was apprehensive about installing the faucet adaptor myself, turns out it was a cinch. I found a helpful video online which showed the tool I needed to get: [...]Normally I don't read manuals, this one I read cover to cover. Some of the typos and wording are good for a laugh and its focus is on how to load a hypothetically uniform set of dishes no one actually owns. Fortunately, the Amazon community helped me fill in the blanks, I'm very grateful for their assistance. Here's what I learned from them and from using the machine:1. Turn on your hot water all the way when you've got it set up and are ready to run it. The cold water will tax the motor.2. If you're using Cascade Complete gel packs, those go in the detergent compartment on the door. There's a little basket on the left side that's for dishwashing tablets. The reason I like the Cascade Complete Gel Packs is it's got everything in it, including the rinse agent that keeps your glasses from streaking.3. You don't have to stress out if you don't turn the faucet off immediately after the cycle is done. Water won't continue to run. I mean, I wouldn't go on vacation without turning off the faucet but you don't have to obsess that there's going to be some water pressure build-up that's going to shoot your shiny new countertop dishwasher into space if you're absorbed in another activity.4. It doesn't dry plastic, but does dry my plates and pots. A few times I rinsed a couple of dishes again, they were super shiny so I was suspicious maybe the Cascade Gel Pack left some residue, so basically I ran them under water again because they looked too clean, starting to worry that I have trust issues.5. The packaging is so sturdy, Wile E. Coyote could have dropped an anvil on it and it would have been fine. I've received mutilated deliveries from other companies with everything from footprints on top of the box to holes where the fork lift went through it. This can withstand whatever fury the delivery company dishes out.6. The adaptor on your faucet takes getting used to. It produces a very strong stream of water so you only need to turn your faucet on a little to use it. I've already had a few accidental wet t-shirt contests but the good news is I won.7. It's very quiet. Sometimes too quiet, I get paranoid it's not running but it is, it's just using its indoor voice. There's about a minute total where there's audible noise.8. The hoses that connect from the unit to the faucet are annoyingly stiff. It's good to know that it's not going to spring a leak any time in the near future but I have to figure out some hook system to make them less obtrusive.9. There's a plastic warning in the manual and one of my Tupperware lids didn't make it. It was probably eighteen years old so it lived a good life. I've washed plenty of other plastic items that made it out just fine.10. Don't forget to turn the power on the dishwasher off before you unload it. If you don't, it makes this annoying beeping sound that the manual describes as "mooing". I assure you, there are no barnyard sounds with this machine.I'm very happy with my purchase. I would give it 4 and 3/4 stars because of the hose, amount of counter space it takes up and its not drying everything 100% completely. It's not perfect, but it's very close and what more could a girl ask for.

I bought this little gem during a Christmas sale (on another site, so be sure to shop around) because I was having carpal tunnel release surgery on both of my hands. I chose the smaller portable model because my kitchen is early 1950's small and I wanted a dishwasher that would fit into my snug little space as well as to function as an island. This is perfect. I've run it several times and the dishes come out dry, clean, and spotless. It is quiet and my dishes feel so clean, they're practically sterilized.The machine arrived at the store where I picked it up. The box looked like it had been through hell, but I inspected everything after unpacking and there were no scratches, dents, or wheel problems. With the help of a series of 3 YouTube videos, I was able to set it up, plug it in, fill it, and run it right away!So far, it doesn't leak and holds a lot more dishes than you would think it could. Doesn't leak (some reviewers have said that theirs did) and is pretty quiet.I have washed plastic, glass, silverware, wood, and pots and 12" pans in here without any problems. I mostly use the dirty dish/slow wash setting (about an hour and a half) because I want my dishes as clean as possible and I run mine over night, but I'll bet the lower/faster setting (about 45 minutes) would work just fine. If I try it and it doesn't, I'll update.I didn't get water softener salt, but I did get Finish brand (liquid and quantum soap powdered gel packets). Some have said that powdered soap doesn't work in this machine, but I haven't had a problem at all. Maybe because the whole compressed tablet drops at once? I also absolutely don't open mine early in the wash to let the door fully open like it does in the video...I just start it and walk away.This thing has quickly made its way into the top 5 all time must-have-can't-live-without appliances in my kitchen. Anyone trying to take this would have to pry it from my (literally) cold, dead hands. Lol!

I've received this dishwasher today and started using it today! My first dishwasher at home. I'm no longer hand SPT SD-9241W Energy Star Portable Dishwasher, 18-Inch, Whitewashing dishes and thanks to amazon for this product. This is the best product. No installation required. Just instantly attach the hose up to your kitchen sink and plug has a 3 prong and plug it into your 3 prong wall outlet, turn on the water after placing the valve to your water faucet. I'd recommend this product to a friend.it heats up on it's own.

This thing is great so far, only been using it a few weeks so... But, on the normal setting it takes 2hrs and it gets the dishes clean. It would be nice if it would dry the dishes, but not a big deal to me. I use it in my out door kitchen, and it is great! After dinner just load it up and run it when I go to the house for the night. Now in the summer time I rarely run the dishwasher in the house LOL. Definately a good purchase for the outdoor kitchen.

It works great. Easy to hook up and easy to disconnect and put away.

I live with a teenager and both sides of the sink were always full of dirty dishes because the full side it replaced was too much for the poor boy to do. This one cut the job into smaller pieces and does a better job!
December 25, 2015
Awesome! Works just like a high-end regular dishwasher, expect that it is (obviously) smaller, not totally quite (but it's really not load at all), and it can take 2h, depending on the program. But, all the toughest grease is gone! And, I got $50 rebate from my energy supplier for the energy star rating.
December 29, 2017
I am happy with my dishwasher so far, works just as good as a full sized one. I really like how easy it was to set up initially and how simple it is to install for each use. It has been a life saver having it. I would recommend it to anyone who has a small kitchen. And it was affordable.

My dislike of doing dishes turned most of the counter space of my small Manhattan kitchen into physics-defying stacks of procrastination. This countertop dishwasher takes up about 60% of usable counter space in my apartment, a sacrifice I'm willing to make but for city dwellers, definitely measure it out.This unit is perfect for one to two people. My loaner husband no longer lives next door to me so I was apprehensive about installing the faucet adaptor myself, turns out it was a cinch. I found a helpful video online which showed the tool I needed to get: [...]Normally I don't read manuals, this one I read cover to cover. Some of the typos and wording are good for a laugh and its focus is on how to load a hypothetically uniform set of dishes no one actually owns. Fortunately, the Amazon community helped me fill in the blanks, I'm very grateful for their assistance. Here's what I learned from them and from using the machine:1. Turn on your hot water all the way when you've got it set up and are ready to run it. The cold water will tax the motor.2. If you're using Cascade Complete gel packs, those go in the detergent compartment on the door. There's a little basket on the left side that's for dishwashing tablets. The reason I like the Cascade Complete Gel Packs is it's got everything in it, including the rinse agent that keeps your glasses from streaking.3. You don't have to stress out if you don't turn the faucet off immediately after the cycle is done. Water won't continue to run. I mean, I wouldn't go on vacation without turning off the faucet but you don't have to obsess that there's going to be some water pressure build-up that's going to shoot your shiny new countertop dishwasher into space if you're absorbed in another activity.4. It doesn't dry plastic, but does dry my plates and pots. A few times I rinsed a couple of dishes again, they were super shiny so I was suspicious maybe the Cascade Gel Pack left some residue, so basically I ran them under water again because they looked too clean, starting to worry that I have trust issues.5. The packaging is so sturdy, Wile E. Coyote could have dropped an anvil on it and it would have been fine. I've received mutilated deliveries from other companies with everything from footprints on top of the box to holes where the fork lift went through it. This can withstand whatever fury the delivery company dishes out.6. The adaptor on your faucet takes getting used to. It produces a very strong stream of water so you only need to turn your faucet on a little to use it. I've already had a few accidental wet t-shirt contests but the good news is I won.7. It's very quiet. Sometimes too quiet, I get paranoid it's not running but it is, it's just using its indoor voice. There's about a minute total where there's audible noise.8. The hoses that connect from the unit to the faucet are annoyingly stiff. It's good to know that it's not going to spring a leak any time in the near future but I have to figure out some hook system to make them less obtrusive.9. There's a plastic warning in the manual and one of my Tupperware lids didn't make it. It was probably eighteen years old so it lived a good life. I've washed plenty of other plastic items that made it out just fine.10. Don't forget to turn the power on the dishwasher off before you unload it. If you don't, it makes this annoying beeping sound that the manual describes as "mooing". I assure you, there are no barnyard sounds with this machine.I'm very happy with my purchase. I would give it 4 and 3/4 stars because of the hose, amount of counter space it takes up and its not drying everything 100% completely. It's not perfect, but it's very close and what more could a girl ask for.

**Update** After one year it died. Previous model still going strong. Not worth dealing with trying to have it repaired. Please see other reviews expressing exact same concerns as me.I am a repeat customer. I also own the Danby DDW611WLED Countertop Dishwasher. I could not be happier with that dishwasher. However, this dishwasher is terrible. I own both at the same time. Because the new rack is so poorly arranged, I can not fit even half the number of dishes in this new one that I can in the old one. They also removed the timer. Now I have no idea how much time is left in the cycle.Some people have said, "Buy a whole new dish set that fits." Should not have to do that when previous model held my dishes just fine.Some people have said, "But the manufacturer says this one holds more." Maybe with whatever set of dishes they were using to get the maximum numbers they could for marketing, but in the real world, things are different. Wouldn't it be great if everything manufacturers claimed was true.I love my old dishwasher. It does everything I want. However I could not be more disappointed in this newer model. Please stay away from this one. Buy the older model while you still can.

This is the best buy around, this little dishwasher is a gem

Unfortunately, from my research on countertop dishwashers, this is the best of the bunch. It appears as though all countertops are manufactured by the same manufacturer, and then just appointed with slightly different electronics and faces to suit each re-branding OEM's needs. They're all almost exactly the same size, there's only about 2 or 3 variations on the racks, and they all appear to have the same door/port placement. We had a Danby Designer before this and it recently gave up the ghost after 12 years of faithful service. I now wish we would have repaired that one, because none of the current models are anywhere near as good as that thing was.The Pros: * This is the only model with a heater built in. *However,* it doesn't really get that hot at 165F. Our last model had to settings for heat-- normal and hot-- and the hot setting would essentially steam everything away and scortch your hand if you touched glasses coming directly out after a cycle. * Quiet. I was honestly surprised by how quiet this thing is, and it's been probably the best feature improvement over older models. * Able to accommodate the tallest plates from all the other versions offered. * Has various settings (but, really, you're only going to use one or two).Cons: * Still not tall enough. Our last Danby Designer could easily hold our 11" dinner plates with room to spare. Now, if we want the dinner plates to be washed, we either have to put them in at 45 degree angles, leaving everything else out, or we wash them by hand. This was a big bummer. * The tray layout is freaking stupid. Like, really, really stupid. I read the directions. I followed the directions, but the layout itself is just dumb, and there's gigantic gaps in the grating where an errant small bowl or cup can fall through and get the washer arm stuck for the entire load. The last model had TONS of options for loading, and the tray grating had no holes for things to fall through. This layout severely limits your options, and you're best to just stick with the recommended layout and do two loads. * While it gets hot, it doesn't get hot enough. If you start a load before going to bed, when you wake up and open the door, everything is still wet and you either have to hand-dry everything, or let it air out for a couple hours. Yes, I'm aware that Jet-Dry and similar products can help this, but I want to use as little chemicals in my foodware as possible, and, frankly, that shouldn't be needed. With our last Danby, you started the load in the night, and when you woke up in the morning and opened the door, everything was just dry. It had a great steam cycle that assured this. * I really would like a timer. This is a feature on some other models (like the SNP), and I didn't know that I would want it. (Again, our last Danby had a mechanical timer you could follow). While this isn't a deal breaker, I can't see this being all that expensive of a part, and I'm kind of sour that Danby didn't include it.Will we return this? No. It's still the "best" of the countertop models currently on offer and it cleans dishes. Will I complain about this for the next however many years we use this. Absolutely. It's a startling thing when you have a decent product produced by a manufacturer, and you purchase their newer model which is obviously inferior. I understand that the market for these things is limited, but that doesn't mean that progress should be cast aside.You're going to look at the market for countertops. You're going to see a complete lack of information on all these different models. You're going to confuse one SNP model that you were looking at for another. You're going to realize that the specs you thought you were looking at for the Magic Chef were actually for the Danby. You're going to go to each manufacturer's website to look for the missing information from the product page, and you're going to realize that the manufacturer's websites don't have this information either.Then you're going to realize that only one company manufactures these things, that the industry doesn't care about this segment, and you're going to go with the Danby because it is the only one that offers a water heater.Then you're going to install it, and use it, and after not too long you're going to b***h about it because it's *juuuuuust* right on the tip of something good, but simply not there. And then you're going to come to the reviews section and say the same damn thing I just said.

I am in love with this dishwasher; it has saved me from the drudgery of hand washing dishes (along with chapped cracked hands). I cannot say enough good things about this dishwasher; it fits nicely on my counter top and underneath the cabinets, ample capacity – read the outside dimensions people! This thing is not a TARDIS there is no way it's going to be bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. The capacity it as basically the top rack of a smaller dishwasher. It took me a little while to get use to loading, but now I have the hang of it.I researched a lot before making my purchase;1 year warranty (much better than some countertop dishwashers I looked at) along with the extended warranty provided by my credit card and an additional 2 months added to the warranty provided by Danby, just take the short questionnaire on the Danby website – 22 month warranty, WOW!Quality companyGood repair history versus some of the popular Asian brands

This model is much better than the DDW497 I replaced. The DDW621 is *far* quieter and cleans items in the dishwasher noticeably better.There is one negative point. The left side has a pair of adjustable/removable shelves. In the DDW497, the comparable shelf was just low enough to allow a second set of cups to be on that shelf (four cups/tall glasses on the lower rack and four 9-oz coffee cups on the upper shelf). The two shelves in the DDW621 are set too high to permit this. They will not allow the same 9-oz cups (Correlle) to be on those shelves because they hit the top of the front opening when you try to roll it into the dishwasher. If you move the racks down, then there is no room for the same-sized cups under those shelves. I checked other coffee cups (8-9 oz capacity, not just Correlle), and they all experienced the same problem. This is a design flaw in the rack, not in the dishwasher. I was able to fit a small (20-oz) casserole onto the top shelf, with its lid on the other top shelf.I mostly use Correlleware, and I have been using it for some time (30+yrs). The largest plates (12") will NOT fit. All the other stuff will fit with few problems.

After living in tiny apartments in Hawaii for 5 years while I was a bachelor in the Navy, and having to hand wash all my dishes, I moved into a small house that didn't have a dishwasher and I said "No more!". If you have a habit of eating out because of the inconvenience of having to hand wash all your dishes, like any dishwasher, this will rather quickly wind up paying for itself several times over - granted, that could be said of any dishwasher. So, specifically about this one:One of the things a lot of people criticize in the reviews here is that the shortest setting is 10 minutes for a freshwater rinse, or for a regular wash cycle you can use the 45 minute cycle - many seem to complain that there isn't a mid-length cycle in between these. Well, it's true that some dishwashers have one, but generally speaking, most don't and take somewhere between 30-60 minutes to wash a load. I think there is a tendency to think that because the unit is compact and does smaller loads, that it might inherently do them faster - I understand where this presumption comes from, but if you think about it, that really doesn't make sense and it's actually normal and acceptable that the unit takes just as long as any other basic model dishwasher for a full and proper wash cycle. I'm not trying to criticize people for wanting a shorter cycle, I'm just saying, for those of you considering buying a mini-dish washer, it would be wise to adjust your expectations accordingly - they're generally smaller, but that doesn't mean faster.It does internally heat the water which really helps dissolve the soap and wash away greasy dishes. I haven't actually used the longer wash cycles (70 minutes, and 1hr 45 minutes I think?) because I always just soak my pots and pans in the sink anyway - but normal dishes as clean as could be on the shorter, 45 minute wash cycle. I just give things a quick rinse before I put them in there, but I don't pre soak normal dishes or anything, and they always come out perfect, peanut butter, pasta sauce, wine, tea, coffee - everything comes out sparkling. I even use only half the detergent recommended, Costco dish-washing powder, (it's my habit to minimize, reduce, and conserve), but everything always comes out great anyway. I have high mineral well-water, so doing a load daily, I add a half cup of white vinegar to the start of a cycle once a week to keep the nice steel interior clean and looking new.The clearance between the wash arm at the bottom and the rack is a little smaller than full sized dishwashers, I've found it wise to bump it with my finger to make sure it doesn't strike any dishes sticking down below the rack before I start it up to wash a load - just as one might with any other dishwasher.The good:-Not noisy, operates and a comfortable 'medium-quiet' volume. i.e. it's not near-silent like a $2000 stainless steel European dishwasher, but it also doesn't roar disruptively. I'm in college and study in the room next to the open kitchen while it's running, so if that's any indicator?-It's stainless steel inside, which I thought was a nice touch of quality, especially for an affordable, compact model.-It's smaller and does smaller loads (which is the purpose, right?) but all around, I don't find that one has to sacrifice anything for the convenience of having this compact model. Same sound, same wash, same soap, smaller size - that's it.The bad:My only "complaint" is that if you disconnect the hose while it's washing in order to use your kitchen faucet for something real quick, and then reconnect it and forget to turn the water back on, the dishwasher will beep and show an "E1" error on the display when it tries to do it's next rinse, but it won't resume washing if you hear the beep and then turn the water on - rather, you'll get the beep, the "E1" error message (which means no water pressure), and then have to reset the 45 minute wash cycle back to the beginning and start over. This is being very nit-picky, and I'm not really trying to make a complaint out of it, as generally, I start it before I go to bed so I've only caused this interruption twice and it really didn't inconvenience me when it happened anyway. I'm really not actually mentioning it to "complain" about it, but it seemed relevant to mention for you all to set your expectations accordingly, since that's what reviews of good products are really for (my opinion). With that, I am content to give it 5 stars and think that overall, you'll enjoy and appreciate this thing - I've genuinely been very happy with it across the board.I hope this helps. 🙂

I'm an idiot ! I've been building a house by myself for over 9 years, living in the lower level in rough comfort with a gourmet stove and fridge with single basin sink BUT NO dishwasher!. It seems like I race myself to use EVERY dish, glass, mug, plate and utensil ...(even convincing myself that the alcoholic drink bar mixing spoons qualified as Cheerios breakfast spoons when there weren't any others clean to use!) And I catch myself doing the REALLY desperate thing by washing the "cleanest" cereal bowl and spoon I can find at 6:30am just to get my cereal fix before you leave for work!!!! RIGHT? Now, I KNOW YOU know what I'm talking about!!!It's pathetic, I'm so good with caring for and putting my power and hand tools away when I'm done with them, but ever since I was a little kid I remember screaming matches with my mom because I HATED doing dishes!It has become a joke when I tell my friends that I have to "SHOVEL the dishes tonight" . SO about a week ago I had had enough. One night I plunked in "Portable Dishwashers" and up popped this little surprise. I'd never seen a dwarf dishwasher before and though intrigued, I wasn't convinced it was worthwhile until I read the FIRST PATHETIC PERSONS REVIEW!! LOL! I gotta tell ya, I spent days reading all the reviews ... BELLY laughing out loud that there are actually other "closet" pitiful people out there JUST LIKE ME! They have all paid the ultimate price by probably spending the days trying to motivate themselves, all mostly in denial. THEN LIKE ME, they knuckle under out of desperation mind you, and finally carve out the 3 hours of time (time for me I'd rather spend working on my house)... to stand in front of that damn sink: sorting ....rinsing...and organizing dirty dishes EVEN BEFORE I can start to WASH them by hand.I'm here to tell you that I have been counting the hours for this machine to arrive. I've watched the tracking diligently and today was the day and I watched FedEx drive into the driveway! And, I t was just in time, because I was down to one plate and one glass! So I was ready to put it to the test.No visible shipping damage before unpacking... Great..That's a good start for such a miserably sized cumbersome box with NO handle knock outs on the protective outer box for the FedEx dudes and dudettes to help muscle it with. I actually watched him roll this off his van's step and push it onto the ground it's so hard for them to manage... BUT it survived that test. CHECK!It certainly was packed well and i didn't see any internal packaging damage. I really appreciated all the use of the very inventive use of cardboard packing that can be recycled, that keeps it safe in transit. KUDOS! BUT...uh oh...there's a sheet metal ding on the back vertical 90 degree edge some 6" above the drain. The impact not only wrinkled the sheet metal but pushed it far enough that the back panel got wrinkled too!... BUT THIS VISUAL DAMAGE ISN'T STOPPING ME! This baby's got work to do!. Clearly this damage happened at the factory, SO HEY... EDGESTAR... jack your QC people up!Onward, easy to unpack, faucet adaptor even fits my fancy faucet, good instructions, easy to set up ..CHECK CHECK CHECK! Something MUST be wrong with this thing, right? Well I ran the 10 minute rinse watching it closely drinking a ceremonial beer, thinking it was going to sound like a DC-10 taxiing to the runway...or leak like a sive. But I was amazed! So I ran to the store and bought my favorite dishwasher products (you see I DO remember what it was like owning a dishwasher almost a DECADE ago!!) ...loaded it up for the first time, using the gel style cascade and jet-dry... Turned it on ...and I've got 15 minutes left on the first run for this little beauty! I am overwhelmed. Next to tears actually, that I didn't get on it and buy this baby years ago!When I do move to the upstairs of my home and bring all my appliances up into the new kitchen, this fabulous midget machine is going to keep on working as the dishwasher right where it is for the lobby/bar for my theater room.Yes it looks nice, not stainless on the outside, but it is very acceptable. In the next weeks after I'm 100% convinced it's not just a dream, I'm going to permanently install it by the sink.Wow, if you are a single person no matter what age, busy with life ...and HATE doing dishes, AND you are sitting on the fence thinking you don't need a dishwasher... THIS DISHWASHER... You are wrong! And now, I even have time to sit town and type out why you're wrong!I hope this thing lasts and lasts and lasts!OH... ITS BEEPING! Only 2-3 more loads to go to get caught up tonight and then I bet I won't need to run it but twice a week if that! Gotta go! I'll let you know how the permanent installation goes. What a relief I'm feeling. It's going to lower my STRESS level enormously! Well worth the money just for that!

Bought this for my tenants. THEY LOVE IT. They call it life changing to have in their very small, San Francisco 1 bedroom apartment. I had this plumbed into the piping under the sink so there's no mussing with the hoses and wires. I think this is the way to go with this unit.Measure carefully - the unit is bigger than you think. Took quite a bit of space under the counter where we have it installed. Not a bad thing, just something to be mindful of when considering - this is not a tiny appliance.Dishes are clean clean clean with scraping and being reasonable - so, no, you can't put a dish with baked on cheese topped with burned caramel and then expect it to make the dish look like new. The unit did, however, pass the dreaded Frozen Pizza Test: Yes, we put a frozen Tostino's pizza in it and ran it through a cycle. The pizza was completely gone with 1 cycle.Unit is quieter than I expected for a free standing appliance like this - total bonus.

I've only run a few loads through it, but so far so good. The door snaps shut on a latch so tight that if you try to just pull it open, the whole thing rocks forward. You have to pull the door open with one hand while holding the washer down with the other so it doesn't move. That's probably a good thing since you don't want the door to leak, but it's something to get used to.

works better than my full sized sears unit did in my old home. only thing is to open it and pull the slide out as soon as it is finished so the hot water etc. will evaporate leaving everything dry. It does not have a heating element. VERY clean dishes. It also holds one one gallon glass jar .. one of the reasons I want a dishwasher.

Good unit. Door is a bit flaky, gotta level it perfectly or the unit will turn off mid cycle worrying it doesn't have a good seal (even though it does. Does a great job washing and drying them though.

 Let's start off with the good. I was excited for this dishwasher after i read all the great reviews. It washes dishes beautifully. Bad...it came partially disassembled. It wasn't easy for me making sure the pump gasket was on correctly and I have plenty of plumbing experience. I cant imagine that its easy for most people. Second there was a thumping sound when washing dishes. Upon investigation the top water jet hits the side ever so slightly when it spins. Im sure its a simple get a new part fix but come on. If i had to do over again I would buy a slightly better brand of dishwasher.

I love it. Small but efficient big pans don't go in there but all the small things do. I live the fact that we didn't have to tear the whole kitchen apart to install it. It fits in the place of one of the cabinets. One of the best investments.

Top was dented in quite extensively upon opening. Works fine but do not buy if you want a new dishwasher

Not bad, but I got it much cheaper than I see it listed now. Arrived early, packaged very well. Easy setup, compartment size barely accommodates listed 6piece settings, but in line with sizes I've seen from competitors. Will need to run daily for 1/2 people essentially. A little disappointed with wash quality. I'll have to get the dishes near clean prior to dishwashing. Kind of defeats the purpose, but maybe there's a break in period. Will update review/rating if I find otherwise down the road.Aesthetically speaking, it's very easy on the eyes. Much more white than the pictures suggest. Sleek lines, pleasing user interface, slight gap between door and base is a bit wide in my opinion, allowing some of the wiring and inner components into view, an observation not seen w competitors. It's not terrible or a deal breaker, but maybe they'll pay a little more attn to detail w next model.All in all, I'm pleased, as I wasn't expecting much out of a compact countertop dishwasher. But as a single working male, I wouldve liked to skip the pre-rinse in a sink and the post cleaning water spot removal lol. Better than nothing.PS the dishes were used for a pasta dinner the night before, with sauce (gravy if ur from Jersey lol) left to dry

I had an unusual situation to overcome. I have a sink from the 1920’s built into a kitchen wall with no wiring. I can’t disassemble or move anything in the kitchen, and I have no dishwasher. My wife and I were getting extremely tired of washing dishes every night. So… The search for a portable dishwasher began.Neither our local Home Depot or Lowes carried anything in the portable variety. We had no choice but to buy an appliance, unseen, online. For the record, this is a scary proposal, I do not recommend trying this.After searching and reading reviews and more searching, I decided portable dishwashers were a joke. More hassle than they are worth… Imagine the headache of rolling a dishwasher out to your sink, hooking it up to a faucet, plugging it in, running the discharge hose into the sink… really??? People do this… And then they have to load, unload, and undo all of those connections. Not for me.Fast forward a couple of years, we are now up to two kids… We neeed a dishwasher!! I went back to search mode and reluctantly bought this SPT getup.Here’s the deal. This dishwasher is identical to a mounted model. The only differences are the additional attachments, wheels on the bottom, counter space on top, cement weight in the rear (to counter balance the weight of dishes on an extended rack), and a power plug. I’m not hooking this up every night, I’m installing it right beside my sink!I’m 100% sure I voided any warranty doing this, however it has exceeded all expectations. I now have a dishwasher that functions just like a builtin, no moving, no hose to the sink.The process was fairly simple. I got rid of all attachments that were unnecessary, placed caster coasters under the wheels, plugged it into a well hidden extension cord and installed lines just like a regular dishwasher. Allow me to list the advantages:1. No connecting, disconnecting etc… just to wash dishes.2. Physics: The discharge pump does not have to fight gravity to make it up to the sink. It is now basically a lateral connection. This should increase the life of the pump.3. I can use my sink while the dishwasher is running… Like regular people :)4. Additional counter space. nice…5. If ever I do remodel the kitchen, and no longer have a need for the SPT, it has wheels :)… hello craigslist.6. Happy wife...Specifically regarding this particular model:We are a family of four. We cook every day. We use this dishwasher everyday. Pots, pans, ladles, tongs, forks, knives, plates, glasses… stuck on food, dried mac and cheese, greasy pans… ALL CLEAN. Seriously, ALL CLEAN. Not just “Oh, that’s good enough”, but really spotless. I am so impressed with this thing.We really could not be happier… here’s the kicker.I waited 3 years to write this review.

My husband and I bought this dishwasher for our apartment. It is easy to hook up and fits male or female faucets, fits an entire set of dishes, cleans very well, and looks sharp. I like that the cord and hose are retractable and fit inside the back of the dishwasher when not in use. It comes with measuring cups for detergent, but we used the all-in-one packs with the all-in-one setting. It worked very well!It had a little trouble with removing peanut butter (because I was sort of terrible about rinsing) and it didn't dry the greatest, but even still I would recommend this to anyone! We just opened it up after running it and let things airdry overnight before putting dishes away. It's a great dishwasher!

I lived in apartments since college. Aside from hard wood floors, AC or a sleeve to BYO, a dishwasher in my mind is the single most important amenity you can have. My current apartment doesn't have one so i bought one from AJ Madison and it was one of the smartest purchases i have made. This unit takes the cake, no prerinse required and uses very little water and my china always comes out sparkling. Very well made: stainless steel tub, easy to connect faucet adapter that doesnt leak. Cleans better than the $2000 Bosch unit at my mom's house. As an added bonus its on casters so it can roll away when you dont need it and the countertop is great to store your dish gel and rinse aid (I use finish, BTW).

It could be a bit bigger to fit larger pots and what not. But for the most part it works just fine and haven't had any issues out of it.

This dishwasher is perfect for a compact kitchen. It runs quietly. You can fit more dishes than you might think in it. And the dishes come out clean. Highly recommend!

I bought the Dish Washer and it never worked. Unfortunately, it was installed after the 30 day return period. Now I am being told they will not resolve the issue and go fish with a local service repair.Will never by Amazon Supplied Appliances again!!!!!!!

I purchased this dishwasher for the kitchen of a very small, old house that doesn't have a lot of kitchen space. It's the perfect fit for what I need. The layout of the racks on the bottom drawer took me some time to adjust to, in order to learn the most efficient way to load, but it eventually clicked. I've had no issues with the functionality of the machine, though it does not internally dry the dishes (I just open the door for about 12 hours after a load has completed). So far, great product that saves me from hand washing all my dishes. Great product for price and size of it.

Shipped very quickly. Was very easy to install, the instructions were a bit confusing though. It does come with the adjustable legs retracted all the way, so it will look short when you take it out of the box.

Great little dishwasher, very quiet. Only negative is that it has no installation kit, so you end up having to spend about an extra $100 to get the various pieces and parts to do the hookup. If not for the lack of a installation kit, it would be five stars.

So far so good , works and cleans the dishes and is quiet doing it. Saved $200 with a stainless steel tub vs a plastic tub.

The washer was to short to fit correctly. An easy fix sense we were putting new counter top anyway.
August 19, 2017
I like that it’s quiet and it fits right in the only small space in our rental property.
December 20, 2017
The seller is a CON. The dishwasher leaks water and doesn't rinse dishes. Had to return it.Strongly recommend not to buy this dishwasher, especially from the seller named Compact Appliance.

The fact that I place the dishwasher far from sink just to reserve food prep area does the magic of hiding excess length of hoses too. The distance from machine to sink faucet is just matches with hoses' length. So I don't see hoses here and there.My height clearance is exactly 17.25". And the unit is 17.24". Making it look semi build-in. This issue took me 2 days to make solid decision and place order.I believe SPT, Edge Star, Danby, and many other brands use same manufacture. There is no way each brand makes same dimensions, specs, features, and interiors. Therefore, I opt SPT based on its simple exterior design and reasonable price, since I think each brand will perform the same anyway.I ran the machine twice today (first day). Came out sparking clean and hot. No water spots (I useCascade Gel with Clorox. And Jet Dry rinse aid)Washing cycle is a little longer than what it says on manual. Running pretty quietly, except when waste water come out into sink (sound like fully opened running water out of faucet into stainless sink), but no complaint tho we don't have room for a built-in.Surely it has heat drying (many users are not sure about this)Installation took me 5 mins. That includes 3 mins reading manual.Just buy it. Life is too short to hand wash dishes

Wow! This dishwasher is a relationship-saver for those with a small apartment. It is small, so I start the washer going with the cooking dishes straight-away and then reload it after dinner with whatever other dishes. I've had it for about a month now and we probably run it 2-3 times a day. One drawback to the washer has been the damn beeper. It scares one of my two Frenchies (he shakes - the sound must be like nails on a chalkboard to him). I wish there was a way to disable it... I am thinking I amy disassemble the door in an attempt to locate the beeper and remove it. Other than that - it is a fantastic machine! 🙂

I should have bought this years ago. I have done five loads and I am in love. My sink is no longer filled with dishes, its kind of disorienting. Like others, after setting up the washer helped me wash the floor. The issue is expansion of the fittings as hot water passes through, so plan on babysitting your first load and retightening the fittings, but take care so you don't get scalded. You should be good to go after that. The washer is plenty big, it fits two kitchenaid artisan series mixing bowls with handles (these are the smaller ones), utensils, with room to spare for plates and bowls. I cook with cast iron and stone, which can't go into the washer so I can't speak about cookie sheets. This washer fits my gsi stainless dishes which haven't been this shiny since they were new. At the end of the wash, my glass and corningware dishes are dry, stainless needs a quick going over. I want to marry this machine, but I've already married the clothes washer. The dishwasher will be built in by spring, as I have plans to rebuild my cupboard to accommodate the washer as a permanent install.Update: lasted three years, so one star for each year. Now the buttons don't work. Will buy another as $80/year is so worth it.

Arrived yesterday, May 8, 2015. It comes in a BIIIG box that barely fit into my car. Got it home, read the directions, hooked it up (after reading the directions it took all of 5 minutes) and, let 'er rip.Ok, I'll admit it, I had lots of dishes to wash. Mostly cups, and bowls. Made sure there was no gunk, and loaded. I'm using an organic/environment friendly dishwasher soap, so they probably didn't come out as perfectly clean as using the alternative. But I wasn't standing at the sink, hand washing my dishes.I've done about 6 loads of all sorts of stuff. Here are some tricks I've learned to get the best wash...1. put silverware in with the handles UP, eating surface down. It get them the cleanest.2. Large plates, correct, they don't fit. Slant them slightly and they'll fit and come sparkling clean.3. Cycles are LONG. I'm using the econ setting, which is much shorter.4. I don't know if there is a heater, but I'm setting my faucet on hot water...and it's working great.5. Do NOT over tighten the threaded connections.6. The key to non-leakage of water, IMHO, are the rubber seals. Get a bag of the right size and change...at least that's what I'm going to do.In conclusion, I couldn't be happier, and my kitchen is finally becoming orderly. Halleluiah!!! What do you want for about $250?

I absolutely love this dishwasher. My only problem I had was the quick release connection did not fit the delta faucet in my rental home. The quick fix to this problem cost me less than $5 at the local hardware store. I was able to buy an additional adaptor for the faucet and instantly hook up the quick connect. I have run three loads of dishes so far and each came out sparkling clean! I suggest liquid dishwasher detergent since the load and water amount is smaller than a normal machine and the 'pods' might be to large for the small machine. The liquid detergent worked great! The maching runs extremely quiet! I was very surprised by this. I expected it to be louder, but glad to say it is quiet except for when the water drains or when the buzzer lets you know it has completed. And do not touch the dishes as soon as you open the door, they will be very hot! Let them cool a moment. I would recommend this dishwasher to anyone who has a small kitchen or a rental like me. It can sit on the counter by the sink or on a microwave type cart on wheels if you want to roll it out of the way when not in use. Either way, if you have a small family and not a lot of dishes every night, it is perfect!

When I was looking for a compact dishwasher for a small space in my kitchen I really struggled to find one with good reviews or any reviews at all so I wanted to make sure I left a review on mine. I normally don't buy appliances online I usually go in the store but it was a matter of almost $300 cheaper online then in store so I took a chance and hoped for the best. This was shipped without tracking which made me nervous but I got it and everything was packed perfectly and it looked great. based on the reviews I purchased a cord separately so I had it as it is not included, I had this professionally installed so I am not 100% sure how long or if any tubing was not provided but with everything the plumber did he was here a couple hours installing this.I have had portable dishwashers that are quite big and hold a lot so I was worried about space when go to this size. I run a daycare and so a dishwasher is a must for me. I do two loads a day versus one, but here's the surprising thing about that, my pervious dishwasher took over 2 hours to do a load this only takes an hour and 43 minutes and its so quiet I have to stand quiet next to it to make sure its running. You can put a lot of dishes in here it really comes down to how you put it in there I usually wash my big pots and pans by hand now and with the silverware I leave the cover on one side and open on the other. This makes it a lot easier to clean my silverware and I put my toddler silverware one the other side. Over all very happy with my purchase. This was a personal purchase.
July 31, 2016
Update: I bought in 2016. It is a small unit. This dishwasher cleans dishes and pots better than any full-size machine machine that I have used. It is a little lighter weight than a larger machine would be, so I had to be careful loading it until I got use to it. I love it.
December 9, 2017
The dishwasher arrived ahead of schedule and in good condition.What struck me was the robust and excellent packaging,No damage to the unit despite signs the washer had been vigorously handled on the box exterior.Double wall thick cardboard and corner braces separated by foam really makes the grade. Installation was simple, and the instructions were clear.Fit and finish were very good, and the unit worked perfectly from the start. I was ready for the long cycle time based on previous reviews, and was aware that there was no heated dry cycle. I am a fanatic about energy conservation, and I placed a recording watt meter on the washer to assess the power usage.It is quite low.But on to the main business at hand--WASHING DISHES!! Performance was good, with thinly crusted on water soluble material fully removed.The long cycle time really soaks into the dried on food.I do not use rinse additives, and my dishes and silverware are spotless.If you leave the door closed after the cycle, it will take longer to dry, but if you open it as soon as the cycle finishes, everything dries in 3 hours or so (caveat: this is high desert, 5000ft, < 20% humidity)

I wrote a negative review on this product over a week ago, but it does not show up. This is my second try. The day it arrived, a week before Christmas, certified appliance technicians came to hook it up. The on button stuck right away--there was nothing behind it to pop it back out. Then it leaked from the bottom when they ran the test--there was no seal. The worst thing about the experience was that I needed to pack it up properly to have UPS pick it back up so that I could return it and get a refund. I needed to find a new box--got one from UHaul, had to get family members to help me pack box properly so that it could be shipped back to Amazon. I ended up buying a dishwasher locally, a frigidaire, where they would take away a defective dishwasher if that was the case. The Frigidaire cost $150 more--but paying the technicians to out in and then take out the defective dishwasher and all the time I wasted packing it up again--well worth the cost of buying locally where you can verify the quality of a product in person.

Did not come with mounting bracket. Called manufacture and was told they do not supply or sell after market bracket . Beware !! This machine has no drying cycle.

Dishes not dry when cycle is finished.

I was super nervous about ordering this off line cause I never heard the brand name. But I'm beyond satisfied with this product and it cleans my dishes really great! Glad I took the chance and bought it!!

This model is very small inside. The racks are short and do not slide in and out easily. Most of all I was dissapointed it does not have a drying cycle .

Was shipped and received in no time. First time running I thought it was not on but the red light was on and putting a ear to the washer I could hear it. Very quiet ! Yes I would buy again !
December 4, 2017
The first time I used It I could see a difference from my old GE dishwasher. all of the tall glasses were clear. I holds a lot more utensils and has an adjustable rack for taller glasses.The only thing I didn't like was the water hook up was done out side of the cabinets and then pushed in. My old was one was done after it was in the cabinets and connected in the bottom front. I couldn't see if there was a possible leak except by looking into the gap along the left and right sides.I would have preferred a factory hose that connected inside the sink cabinet, like the electrical.

Great little dishwasher, fit on the counter,took about 3 min. to hook up no complaints
September 20, 2017
We are really pleased with this dishwasher. It runs quietly and does a great job cleaning the dishes. It's easy to connect to our kitchen sink with the universal adapter we also bought on Amazon. Had to pay extra to get it sent to our remote location in Alaska, but it was worth it. We found that liquid dishwasher soap works best. Some powder packets did not dissolve as expected even when cut in half, but we later figured out it may have been the packets not the dishwasher at fault. We were hoping it would fit on the counter under the cupboards but it was an inch too tall.

I've owned this one for almost three months and I love it. Love not having to hand wash most dishes anymore. Only have to hand wash the large dishes, such as chargers or cookie sheets because the capacity of this dishwasher is small and the opening is pretty small too. But overall, this dishwasher is great. Just don't have any dishes in the sink when running the washer because the drain water comes out of the hose pretty fast and can ricochet against dishes in the sink and get all over the place.
July 30, 2017
This beats the dish washer I had by a country mile!!! Really cleans great,heats the water very hot & is a push button wonder. I'm really impressed!! I can clean twice as much as I could with my former machine & it's the same size! This is a KEEPER!!!!!!!!. Forgot to mention it's so quiet that I had to keep checking when I first used it to make sure it was working!!
June 1, 2017
Fantastic dishwasher. It took about 15 minutes to unpack and setup. No leaks. No tools needed. Normal plates fit fine. Everything was included hoses and adaptor.
November 3, 2016
This machine is just ok, nothing great. About every 3rd or 4th wash, the dishes don't always come clean, there is a residue left on them. The organization of the rack isn't great either, I find it difficult to load my dishes n an organized fashion to optimize the room available. We have had this for a few months and there was already a leak due to the fasteners in the back coming loose from moving the hose around (from faucet back to counter).

This Dishwasher changed my life! This review may not start well but it ends well. Seriously. If you're considering buying this, please read. It's long, but it may put any doubts about purchasing to rest. (Skip to the chase, buy it. It's awesome.)I moved into a small apartment after a divorce and went from a built-in soundless Bosch top of the line hooked up to a garbarge disposal so I didn't even need to rinse a dish to, yea. Just a sink. I had to hand-wash dishes. Yuck. I wasn't used to it. They piled up. It was gross. The landlord wouldn't pay to install a built-in (in hindsight why would they?). I wasn't about to pay for a plumber. So like any lazy girl who hates manual work would do, I hit the internet. Omg there's a dishwasher I can sit on my counter and hook up to my kitchen faucet??? And it's only $200 & change??? So-so reviews be damned! What have I got to lose?Alright, I order it. It comes in. Fits under my cabinet on the counter next to the kitchen sink. All I have to do is screw an adapter into the faucet and screw hoses into the back of the dishwasher. No problem.It works ok for a couple months. (Just for reference I bought it Feb of 2016). Ok so April / May 2016 the buttons just kinda start blinking and it shuts itself off mid-cycle. I'm like wtf? It's not great to begin with and now - nothing? Aw, Hell no.I contact the company directly (yes I purchased it directly from the manufacturer through Amazon). The customer service was so good it surprised me. They said it was covered under warranty. At first they told me to ship it back and they'd replace it. I had thrown out the box already. So they shipped me a brand new dishwasher and told me to ship the defective one back in the box the new one came in.So the new one was amazing! Obviously my original one had some issues... and omg the replacement one worked a million times better!I am writing this review Feb 2018. I've been using this dishwasher every day for two years now. Not just every day - anywhere from one to three or even four times a day. I've meant to go online and praise it's virtues many, many times. But stuff comes up and I kinda forget. Tonight, I just kinda feel compelled... here's why:1) I'm doing my taxes. I find this dishwasher receipt from 2016 in my receipt pile from last year. I smile 'cause I had just started washing a load of dishes. With a Cascade Pod. It looked delicious.2) I remember that I wasn't too impressed at first. Then I remember that my first unit was a lemon. Then I remember that the replacement unit was pretty awesome and that the company was super cool about the whole thing and made the return / replacement pretty easy.3) I think to myself that this dishwasher makes my every-day chores so much better. I may make it go through three or four cycles a day, but if I had to hand-wash that many dishes I would either 1. Be compelled to purchase paper or plastic plates, cups, and utensils, thereby contributing to the destruction of trees and stuff. (What am I - an animal?) OR 2. I would most likely be compelled to harm my significant-other (or myself) for leaving a sink-full of dishes to manually wash. (And have to deal with wtf ends up in the sink drain thingy?) Yea, no. I've literally physically fought people for lesser offenses.4) Recently, this handyman guy was sent by my landlord to fix a leak in the bathroom. As he walks through the apartment he sees this beautiful white box sitting on the kitchen counter. "What IS that? Is that a dishwasher??? I'm a plumber. I've never seen anything like that. That is SO COOL!".Yes. Yes it is. I haven't hand-washed a dish in two years. Every single dish, cup and freaking pot or pan comes out clean. Every. Single.Time. Does it fit as much as my big built-in under the counter dishwasher? Of course not.But... this dishwasher changed my life. No longer is dishwashing a chore. This freaking thing is hooked up to my tap on my freaking counter and has worked flawlessly for two years now. If you are in an apartment or an RV or just don't have the room or want the expense of installing a built-in dishwasher... buy this. It's pretty awesome. (And if it's not awesome, maybe you got a lemon like my first one. Just contact SPT and they'll make it right).Disclaimer: I use those pretty Cascade pods for washing dishes; I was not under the influence of any detergents while writing this review.
February 2, 2018
I appreciate it. This is my first experience with a dish washer. I will definitely be getting a bigger one when i can.

Ok, so I have a tiny 1950's kitchen and have had to use these portable type dishwashers for years. They are great little units--but need a little reasonable care to work at their best--here's what I've learned to make them last a good long time:When you load the dishes, reach under and spin the aerator arm to make sure it rotates freely and nothing hangs down to block it.Rapid Eco setting is the shortest and does a fine job.Only needs about 1 Tablespoon of detergent, gel works best.Does a good job, but doesn't handle too much loose or caked on food on dishes. I trap the previous load's water in one side of the sink and use it to presoak anything that is extra tough--lazy but effective.Sweep food off trap screen after every load.After about 3 or 4 years, if your unit (& this can happen to ANY dishwasher!) suddenly pours water out the door when filling, don't despair! Don't throw it in the landfill, don't waste time replacing the door gasket. Just shut it off, shut off the water, turn on the unit so it will pump out the water and UNPLUG it so you can't shock yourself working on it. Then look up online how to clean out the FLOAT MECHANISM. It gets gunked up after awhile and just a little vinegar and a toothbrush and you're good to go for another 3 or 4 years.Take off the front lower panel and lift the side panel closest to the hoses. Look for a little box with a removable lid and a lever coming out of it (this shuts off the water when it reaches the correct level). CAREFULLY open it and gently clean out the gunk so the float can freely move up and down. Fill it halfway with vinegar once clean and replace the lid. Tightly close the box with a ziptie so it is airtight. Done!Hope this helps!

I use this in a guest unit but if my current full-sized dishwasher unit ever breaks I think I will replace it with this. It works really well but I have never tried it on anything difficult to clean.I spent about eight hours at various plumbing and home-improvement stores - trying every single possible connection and asking for help from knowledgeable plumbers - but ultimately it involved picking up every single piece of pipe and tubing in the store and trying to match them together.Here are the labels on the packets:One Brass Pipe Tee T Connector 1/2" FIPThree Brass Pipe Hex Nipples 1/2" MIPOne Dishwasher Elbow 3/8" OD x 3/4" GHNPT= national pipe thread = MIP= male iron pipe = FIP=female iron pipe. All use the same threads, at least here in the USA.GH = garden hoseOD = outside diameter, seems to be what is used on faucet supply lines.Attach the nipples to the T connector as shown in the picture (I used plumbers thread-seal tape.)Then you need the connecting faucet supply lines. The two lines going into the T connect to your hot and cold water lines. Just buy lines where one end is is 1/2 in MIP/FIP/NPT and the other end attaches to a system that will branch water from your wall outlet (sorry I didn't keep those packets - let me know if you need more details on this and I can check to see what I used.) The line going into the dishwasher has one end 1/2 in MIP/FIP/NPT and the other end attaches to the dishwasher elbow 3/8in OD. The other end of the dishwasher elbow attaches to the dishwasher. (Too much detail probably!)Then I cut a hole in the drain pipe above the trap and the dishwasher drains directly into the drain.(sorry that the picture shows the metric version of the sizes - 1 cm is 3/8 in and 1.27 cm is 1/2 in.)What I have learned since doing this:Now I also see there is something called a "Y Washing Machine Mixer Hose" which may be useful, since the attachment going into the dishwasher is the same size as washing machine connections. (I think.)Also, since the dishwasher has an internal water heater, you could just connect this to the cold water if you just wanted to deal with one supply line.

I actually find this a great piece of addition to my appliances. I recently bought and so far very good. Should have purchased sooner since after preparing food I find doing dishes and cleaning up was such a chore but now I am happy for the little helper. I also use it te wash my veges and fruits with the pre wash cycle. I do it twice once with a few drops of bleach AND THEN DO A SECOND PRE WASH. YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO Pack it so that it does not fall through. I use mesh bags for this but I need small mesh trays or pieces of flat mesh to rest on the wide spaces to make more use of this appliance. THANK YOU KOLDFRONT. THANK YOU. I AM HOPING TO GET MANY YEARS OF TROUBLE FREE SERVICE.

The Best dishwasher ever!!!! and what a price!!!, we are a family of four and it washes 2 meal dishes a day (about 8 plates , 8 glasses, 2 pans etc... , installing it was a breeze, andit fit perfect to our kitchen space
January 6, 2018
This Koldfront Countertop Dishwasher has served our family very well since we started using it several weeks ago. So far we've only washed plates, cutlery, cups, bowls, plastic food containers and small pans in it because a large pot or pan would take up most of the available room inside, so we just wash those by hand.Unlike the standard size dishwasher installed at our previous residence, this countertop DW hasn't left any food bits or cloudy film on the dishes. I'm so happy about that!
January 30, 2014
This little dishwasher is very well made and really does an excellent job. Just be sure your plates are 9-1/2" or smaller for best fit.
November 28, 2016
This is a great addition for a small apt. The only complication was that it was too tall to fit on the counter below the cupboards. (We failed to measure first 😉 We ended up finding a sturdy wooden rolling kitchen kart to set it on. A separate rolling dishwasher would have worked also, but it ends up allowing for extra storage space on the kart, which is always handy. Also, by putting it up on a kart, it makes it more 'kitchen counter level' and alleviates having to constantly bend over to load/unload. The dishwasher works great!
May 2, 2014
Awesome dishwasher bought for install in an rv operates very quietly could hardly hear it running. A bit heavy for portable use so best if you just leave in one location. I built mine into the cabinets in the kitchen

I trap the previous load's water in one side of the sink and use it to presoak anything that is extra tough--lazy but effective.Sweep food off trap screen after every load.After about 3 or 4 years, if your unit (& this can happen to ANY dishwasher!) suddenly pours water out the door when filling, don't despair! Don't throw it in the landfill, don't waste time replacing the door gasket. Just shut it off, shut off the water, turn on the unit so it will pump out the water and UNPLUG it so you can't shock yourself working on it. Then look up online how to clean out the FLOAT MECHANISM. It gets gunked up after awhile and just a little vinegar and a toothbrush and you're good to go for another 3 or 4 years.Take off the front lower panel and lift the side panel closest to the hoses. Look for a little box with a removable lid and a lever coming out of it (this shuts off the water when it reaches the correct level). CAREFULLY open it and gently clean out the gunk so the float can freely move up and down. Fill it halfway with vinegar once clean and replace the lid. Tightly close the box with a ziptie so it is airtight. Done!Hope this helps!

I use this in a guest unit but if my current full-sized dishwasher unit ever breaks I think I will replace it with this. It works really well but I have never tried it on anything difficult to clean.I spent about eight hours at various plumbing and home-improvement stores - trying every single possible connection and asking for help from knowledgeable plumbers - but ultimately it involved picking up every single piece of pipe and tubing in the store and trying to match them together.Here are the labels on the packets:One Brass Pipe Tee T Connector 1/2" FIPThree Brass Pipe Hex Nipples 1/2" MIPOne Dishwasher Elbow 3/8" OD x 3/4" GHNPT= national pipe thread = MIP= male iron pipe = FIP=female iron pipe. All use the same threads, at least here in the USA.GH = garden hoseOD = outside diameter, seems to be what is used on faucet supply lines.Attach the nipples to the T connector as shown in the picture (I used plumbers thread-seal tape.)Then you need the connecting faucet supply lines. The two lines going into the T connect to your hot and cold water lines. Just buy lines where one end is is 1/2 in MIP/FIP/NPT and the other end attaches to a system that will branch water from your wall outlet (sorry I didn't keep those packets - let me know if you need more details on this and I can check to see what I used.) The line going into the dishwasher has one end 1/2 in MIP/FIP/NPT and the other end attaches to the dishwasher elbow 3/8in OD. The other end of the dishwasher elbow attaches to the dishwasher. (Too much detail probably!)Then I cut a hole in the drain pipe above the trap and the dishwasher drains directly into the drain.(sorry that the picture shows the metric version of the sizes - 1 cm is 3/8 in and 1.27 cm is 1/2 in.)What I have learned since doing this:Now I also see there is something called a "Y Washing Machine Mixer Hose" which may be useful, since the attachment going into the dishwasher is the same size as washing machine connections. (I think.)Also, since the dishwasher has an internal water heater, you could just connect this to the cold water if you just wanted to deal with one supply line.

I actually find this a great piece of addition to my appliances. I recently bought and so far very good. Should have purchased sooner since after preparing food I find doing dishes and cleaning up was such a chore but now I am happy for the little helper. I also use it te wash my veges and fruits with the pre wash cycle. I do it twice once with a few drops of bleach AND THEN DO A SECOND PRE WASH. YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO Pack it so that it does not fall through. I use mesh bags for this but I need small mesh trays or pieces of flat mesh to rest on the wide spaces to make more use of this appliance. THANK YOU KOLDFRONT. THANK YOU. I AM HOPING TO GET MANY YEARS OF TROUBLE FREE SERVICE.

The Best dishwasher ever!!!! and what a price!!!, we are a family of four and it washes 2 meal dishes a day (about 8 plates , 8 glasses, 2 pans etc... , installing it was a breeze, andit fit perfect to our kitchen space
January 6, 2018
This Koldfront Countertop Dishwasher has served our family very well since we started using it several weeks ago. So far we've only washed plates, cutlery, cups, bowls, plastic food containers and small pans in it because a large pot or pan would take up most of the available room inside, so we just wash those by hand.Unlike the standard size dishwasher installed at our previous residence, this countertop DW hasn't left any food bits or cloudy film on the dishes. I'm so happy about that!

This little dishwasher is very well made and really does an excellent job. Just be sure your plates are 9-1/2" or smaller for best fit.

This is a great addition for a small apt. The only complication was that it was too tall to fit on the counter below the cupboards. (We failed to measure first 😉 We ended up finding a sturdy wooden rolling kitchen kart to set it on. A separate rolling dishwasher would have worked also, but it ends up allowing for extra storage space on the kart, which is always handy. Also, by putting it up on a kart, it makes it more 'kitchen counter level' and alleviates having to constantly bend over to load/unload. The dishwasher works great!

Awesome dishwasher bought for install in an rv operates very quietly could hardly hear it running. A bit heavy for portable use so best if you just leave in one location. I built mine into the cabinets in the kitchen

I think it works really well. It was super easy to connect the adapter that comes with it. I was able to install it and set it up myself, no assistance required, even though you probably should. It basically has the capacity of the top rack of the dishwasher. It does hold large plates and serving dishes.
