I was a bit skeptical about a countertop dishwasher,but having had a dishwasher all my life & having no space for one now I thought that I'd give this one a shot. Well! I was very pleasantly suprised! Not only is this item easy to operate,it cleans the dishes & utentials well & is virtually silent. The only noise is the water drainig on the rinse cycle & that's minimal. I used it for everyday dishes & casserole dishes as well & find it as works as well as my former built in models. I'm very glad that I purchased this dishwasher would recommend it.Certainly solves the dirty dishes problem!
I haven't even seen a dish washer in over 10 year's. I bought this one cause it's just my husband and I left at home, so we don't have that many dish's. And now my husband is doing the dish's every night. He like's it too.... I LOVE IT

This is a perfect little dishwasher. It is quiet, easy to use, and I didn't have to buy any parts. I do plan to go shopping for smaller plates though. My kitchen cabinets are too low to put it on the counter so I have it on a dolly under my counter that I wheel over to the sink when it is time to use it. I only wish I had bought one sooner.

My boyfriend and I bought this dishwasher because we live in a small apartment. It is a great size dishwasher fits on the counter perfectly (with room to spare) The only complaint I have about this dishwasher is that it does not clean the silverware that great. I use jet dry powder (cant uses pods or tabs, they do not fit in the detergent spot)and liquid finisher. One great thing about it is that no matter what kind of water pressure you have it still runs great!
I am a full time RV'r. I live in a 40' 5th wheel. While for an RV it's roomy and has lots of storage the kitchen is far from the size of your home kitchen in a standard house. ALSO.... I absolutely hate to wash dishes. Like to cook for myself but those dang dirty dishes! I even used paper plates for a while. Okay there's the preface..... Not much room & hate to wash dishes. Although this is pretty compact it takes quite a lot of space on my counter top. It seems to do a nice job but there are a few things to watch for. The main trouble I've had with it is learning to use the proper amount of detergent. It only needs about a tablespoon per wash. Second you need to be careful in loading the silverware basket. If you load it with too many items near the door the detergent compartment the door hits it and won't fully open, it then leaves about half of the detergent stuck to the inside of the door and running down to the bottom of the dishwasher. I guess I'm still learning to use it but over all I like it. Being a single guy living alone it works well for me I guess. ONE heck of a lot better than standing there with my hands in dish water every time I dirty dishes! Quality wise? It looks to be pretty well built. Over all I'd recommend it.
I live in a very cool 1950s apartment in LA and the landlords won't change any of the original kitchen styling, which means no dishwasher. It was fine when I was there alone, but once my boyfriend moved in, I felt like I was spending my life doing dishes. This fit on our counter and does a very good job. You do need to rinse the dishes a little first and if anything's dried on, it'll stay on. Nevertheless, this is a HUGE quality of life improvement... and for just $200+ dollars, worth every dime. If I value my time at just $5 per hour, that means it'll pay for itself in 40 hours... which I would easily spend on dishes over the course of a few months. Thrilled this product exists. Oh, and the quality really seems to be excellent. Very pleased.
I bought a portable dishwasher a couple of years ago from another company and it just didn't add up. The space inside the dishwasher was small, the racks were bent and worst of all it didn't fit underneath in the space that was allocated for it. Overstocks portable counter top dishwasher is far superior. The silver finish compliments my other stainless steel and black appliances. It has lots of room inside for plates, silverware, cups, saucers and I even threw in a couple of small pans. I love this dishwasher and the price. Very good deal. If your looking for more room in the kitchen and "an extra set of hands this is it. What a treat I'm glad I purchased this and would highly recommend to friends and family members!
I am just amazed at the efficiency and power of this affordable dishwasher! It is quite heavy so not easy to move around and too large to leave on the countertop so I put it on an island - type table that has casters on it and I just turn the table around as needed. I actually bought it to go into my motorhome but am usiing it in my house presently. Being small the size of an object to be washed may impact the ability to include it, however, I've managed to either tilt the object or otherwise managed to include everything I've needed to include! I do, however, wash pots and pans by hand. Over all I am well pleased with it and look forward to putting it in and using it in my motor home this coming Spring/Summer/Fall
I think the wash cycles run a bit longer than the manual says, but it's fine. I did have to get a second faucet adapter so that the included one would screw on, but once that was set it was fine. Take the piece to the hardware store. The routine: hook to faucet, turn hot to full, turn on device, add detergent, select program, hit start. After it runs and beeps: turn off water, unhook hose (watch out for drainage), turn off device, and open for drying/cooling. After I deciphered the manual one time, I just used a Sharpie to write the programs types (normal, lite, heavy, rinse, pots) and the names of the tubes on the back right onto the unit (drain, inlet, etc) so there's no confusion. It fits on a large-ish kitchen cart. The microwave is below on the same cart. The door could open a bit more smoothly since I usually get a bit sprinkled with hot water when I open it. But it has a nice seal when you close it. The water gets HOT in there. If you've been handwashing and you need to step up your game to really clean things for a baby or something, this does it. The capacity isn't great, but it's better than my tiny sink and we have no room for drying, so it's a definite improvement to our kitchen.

I rent a small place where I work away from home. It is an old house without a dishwasher. I will get so busy at work , the dishes would be piling up in the sink! I have used this a couple of times and it is so convenient. My reason for the 4 stars instead of five is, it takes a while to hook it up and then leaks around the connection. I have to wrap a dish towel around it. To keep water from spraying everywhere.

Works great, haven't had any problems with it. It was quite a bit bigger than I expected and it wouldn't fit on my counter under my cabinets but if I had read the description and measured before ordering I would have known that. The bigger size than I expected also meant it held a lot more dishes than I expected. Really good product for the money I spent on it.
