Danby Portable Dishwasher DDW1805W

New from Danby - the Portable 18" Dishwasher! If you're short on space but you still need a quality dishwasher, this Danby Portable 18" Dishwasher may be what you need. It rolls easily on caster wheels and comes complete with a quick connect adaptor to hook up to your sink - and it drains to your sink too. The caster wheels and faucet adapter allow you to store this slimline dishwasher out of the way and roll it to your sink when you need to run a load. Plus, it's Energy Star rated for excellent energy efficiency! You might expect a product this convenient to skimp on other features too, but that's hardly the case. The Danby Portable 18" Dishwasher features a stainless steel tub for long-lasting durability, convertible dishracks that adjust for regular or glass-only loads, 7 wash programs including Sani-Wash, super quiet operation and low water consumption.

Great Value, Good performance
Posted:11/1/09
Pros: price convenience performance
Cons: a little noisy doesn't dry perfectly
" I've had this for about 6 weeks and run it 3-4 times per week.
This dishwasher fits in my small kitchen. It is priced less than other 18" models but has a stainless steel drum. Not having to pay a plumber and electrician to install a built in saved me $300-$500. Hookup to the sink with a quick -connect is simple. Without surrounding cabinets to help absorb noise when it's running, it's not real quiet, but quieter than the contractor grade DW in my father's condo. I can watch TV in my open plan LR about 15 feet away when it's running.
It's Energy Star, so it takes 2 hr to run a full cycle with prewash. It does an excellent job of cleaning on all cycles; if I open the door when the cycle is done, the dishes dry reasonably well. The top shelf height is adjustable, and regular 11" plates fit fine in the lower shelf.
I am very happy with this DW. "

Best Small Portable Dishwasher
Posted:10/29/09
" I LOVE my new dishwasher. It is easy to move around my kitchen and attaches easily to water and electricity. I've had it for about a month now and it cleans everything I throw at it. The racks are a bit rickety and sometimes dishes clang together when moving the racks back and forth but for the convenience of not doing dishes it's worth taking a little extra care with the racks. I read reviews that said this was perfect for a small kitchen or apartment and that it does the job that big dishwashers do. I would have to agree completely. Though its capacity is smaller, it really does do the job of a larger built-in. It's the perfect answer for my tiny kitchen where I cook a lot and produce a lot of dirty dishes. "

Great Dishwasher
Posted:10/20/09
Pros: made of high quality materials striking design, great price for the features.
Cons: tubing is a little difficult to put back in recess, but may be something we just need to practice.
" We were extremely surprised at the quality and overall good looks of Danby 18" dishwasher, and expected something less than what we received. It works perfectly, is relatively quiet running, and exactly what we needed. If you need a great portable dishwasher with a small footprint, then this is IT. We love it. "

A nice washer
Posted:10/31/08
" Getting this washer has made things a lot easier for our family with new baby. The racks are well designed with space to put various size things.
Problems: the hoses are too short so that you have to wheel the machine right next to the sink. I was hoping for something easier. The machine is bigger than I thought, which is too bad because it takes up too much space in my kitchen. "
