Customer Reviews

Danby 18" Portable Dishwasher is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will never go without a dishwasher again. I have always hated the mess and time required to wash dishes by hand. I also had never heard of a mobile dishwasher until I visited an older family member who had one. With Corona Virus a huge threat, my time limited due to work, and my busy lifestyle - It’s important for me to know that my dishes are not only clean, but sanitized. This little beauty is hands down my favorite and prized appliance, after the fridge that is. I will never go without a dishwasher just because my apartments didn’t come with one pre-installed. This is my second brand and the one that I think offers the best bang for your buck. If your friends or family members are living without a dishwasher, even if they claim to enjoy hand washing dishes, get them one of these as your next gift. You will be remembered a long time! **You do need to make sure that water has completely drained from the hose after disconnecting from the faucet. I lay my hose and quick connector on a cookie sheet and allow it to drain before putting it away. Otherwise, you will have a small (a cup or less) of water to clean up from the floor. I don’t think there is any way you can avoid not having to drain the hose unless you leave it connected all day. It’s unavoidable but takes two minutes. Thank you Danby, I rarely write reviews but your product deserved it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not very good hose placement when you hang hoses on back of dishwasher, you have to get down on floor with small bucket to drain hoses. Otherwise hoses drain on floor, then you have to mop up water.
