LOVE this machine
Posted by: kath102 from: alabama on
I am a 65 yo grandmother raising her 9 yo grandson. This is perfect for us - I really checked around and Best Buy's price beats anyone else's by a minimum of $100 PLUS free shipping. Unbelieveably well packaged. took longer to unpack than to set up and use. Instructions are not very good - 2 things to point out - the white hookup part SLIDES down, insert silver adapt (you have already put on your faucet) and let it slide back up over adapter. No leaks so far. also, to lower top shelf, pry off end caps on arms with a flat blade screwdriver in a little slit on the side and they pop right off, roll onto lower set of wheels and there you go. washes everything clean, clean, clean - just rinse and don't leave on gobs of food since it is not going through a garbage disposal. have washed 8 x 8 pyrex pans, pots and pans in addition to regular glasses and plates and no problems. It is true it does not dry but everything is dry when they come out except for plastic for some reason - but a pass or two with a dish towel takes care of that. LOVE this machine, moves so easily with almost one finger touch, hooks up in 3 seconds, and you are ready to wash. hope I am as pleased in 2 years as I am now!

Just what I wanted.
Posted by: AllisonLiam from: on
If anyone complains about this I would be surprised. It is FANTASTIC! I live in an apartment with no dishwasher and this was what I wanted. I bake A LOT, so hand washing got real annoying, real quick. It holds my pots and pans and all my cups. I used a coupon which took the price down by a hundred bucks and that was nice. Overall, my kitchen is so clean looking now that I don't put off doing the dishes. I use a little more soap than reccomended and it is worth noting, this dishwasher can use the all in one tablets. I bought the dry soap and was dissapointed I could've bought the all in one. I guess that's what happens when you are so excited and buy stuff before it comes. PERFECT for a 2 person family who cooks. Also, after reading lots of reviews, I was nervous buying something this expensive from a brand I'd never heard of, but it's been 3 weeks and my dishes are cleaner than my hand washed ones.

Smaller internal capacity in terms of the number of dishes that I can wash at once compared to my previous 18"-class dishwashers, but it does a good job of cleaning the dishes and it is extremely quiet! Even most built-in models make more noise

Great Portable Dishwasher

This dishwasher is GREAT! We were able to change the hoses in the back of the Dishwasher and make it a permanent fixture. Love It!

Great dishwasher for small houses
Posted by: wahine1 from: Oklahoma on
This is a great dishwasher for a small house. I have an older home without cabinet space for a dishwasher and this dishwasher was ideal for me. This dishwasher is quieter than my mothers built in .

Wonderful Mini Dishwasher
Posted by: Thessally from: Mill Valley on
I love my small half size dishwasher. It fits in my small kitchen and washes the dishes beautifully. I use very little soap. I especially like being able to use the top to put things on. The top acts like an extra tabletop. It's a great little dishwasher.

Cleans the dishes better than my bigger portable.
The soap pellets work much better than the liquid soap - liquid always seaps out onto a few of the dishes creating messy stuck on gunk i need to hand wash off anyway.
Only thing I wish were different is the 2 hr long wash cycle. but, it's really quiet, so running it at night before going to bed is the work around.
Make sure you have a good fitting washer and plumbing tape, our attachment to the faucet leaks pretty badly.

one of the internal hoses was not connected by the factory so when it was used fro the first time it filled the kitchen with water. Worst part was that Best Buy insisted the only way to have it looked at was to bring it into the store. Customer service was totally non responsive

Excellent Cleaning Dishwasher, Very Quiet!
Posted by: HonestJoe68 from: Mansfield, Ohio on
I highly recommend this SPT dishwasher, I own it and bought it with my own money, so my opinion is unbiased and truthful. This dishwasher is extremely quiet and has cleaned all my dishes perfectly and spotless. All my dishes fit easily and I was nicely surprised to find how much you can fit inside. I use Corelle dishes and I can wash a full service for 8 (plus more) easily in one load. I love the timer countdown feature and the chime that plays when the dishwasher is finished. It's also the only washer I could find that matches all my other Stainless Steel and black trimmed appliances, but I highly recommend it for much more than it's appearance. The manual is easy to read, you get a dish loading chart with pictures (nice for newbies) and detailed pre-wash, wash, rinse and dry times and temperatures as well as the time it will take to complete each of the six cycles offered. My previous 18" portable dishwasher was 8 years old (was white exterior so replaced with the new stainless steel appliances I bought here at Best Buy) and even back then cost more than this SPT, but it didn't have as many features, nor did it wash as well as this dishwasher. The quality of the build is very good and the stainless steel interior is better than a lot of the higher priced standard sized washers I've seen. I also love the Adjustable top rack with flip down holders for stemware or to use as a small shelf. The racks are a high quality, very sturdy and the taupe color rack coating feels soft and thick to protect fine dishes. I really love the bottom shelf has two flip down dish guides (See pics) for when you want to wash a larger bowl or pots and pans, very useful. All together I highly recommend this great dishwasher and can I say again how Quiet it is! I've included pics of the interior as they were almost none existent online, so I hope that helps. Any questions I'd be glad to answer them. Thanks

Amazing for small houses/apartments
Posted by: Allen from: on
My family rented a small house a year ago that did not have a built-in dishwasher. After a year of doing dishes by hand, we decided that a portable dishwasher might be a good investment, and are we glad we did. This thing making cooking so much easier without the daunting feeling of having to hand wash every thing you are getting dirty. It holds quite a few dishes and even a few small pots. Silverware caddy is a huge bonus. We were worried on how portable it really was going to be, but it does not take much effort to wheel this around with a full load, pull out the hoses, attach it, turn it on and forget about it. The only negative thing I could say about this is drying is a minor issue. I normally just crack the door open after it is done and leave it open over night. Do not let the ability to dry turn you away from this great product, it does a great job cleaning and the instructions are quite clear and helpful. I strongly recommend this to anyone that lives in small house/apartment and is tired of doing the dishes.
