Danby DDW1801MWP Portable Dishwasher : Good Item but Electric Cord Can be a Problem

Disclosure: i do not own one of these. I do, however, own the model it is replacing, the ddw1899wp (here: https://www. Com/danby-ddw1899wp-1-portable-dishwasher/dp/b00ffzeu6a/ref=cm_cr-mr-title). The specs are identical, but i will note in some points things that i don’t know would apply to this replacement model. Beware the one-star reviews posted (as of this date) for this product. One is a review of a different product, and the other one is from a troll – read my comment to his ‘review’ and you’ll see that he is obviously lying (could not possibly have bought one of these as he claims, and is posting the same one-star review against multiple danby products). One of danby’s competitors, or a seller of products from danby’s competitors?. Original reviewfirst, make sure you shop around. I got mine from the website of that big chain that starts with w and ends in mart, $100 less than the best price i could find on amazon and free shipping to the store. Edit: as of this moment i see prices for this on amazon range from $891 (gulp) to >>$85.And this item has several different listings on amazon.

We decided to finally get the dishwasher when we read another review that said ‘this dishwasher saved my relationship. ‘ it has definitely made our house happier. It works great and the water softener feature that uses salt is really cool too in case you have hard water.

Had to wait for the washer to actually arrive before i could fit the adapter to my kitchen faucet. I got very concerned that i might not be able to mount the adapter, however, a $4. 19 additional purchase at home depot solved the issue. And most importantly: the wife was pleased. (let’s face it, i’m whipped).

I have had this portable dishwasher for over a year now and i honestly don’t know how i got by without it. It is a rugged little machine and it cleans and sanitizes all the dishes i can manage to stuff in it. I live in a two bedroom apartment and have nebigors downstairs and up and have not once had a problem. It is very quiet and only puts off white noise. I’d say using a blow dryer in the morning is louder than this dishwasher. The dishwasher hooks up to your sink using a small quick connect port and a quick connect port on the dishwasher hose itself. Both the intake and outlet hoses are together on the same port, so you have the convenience of only one set of lines that are kept neatly together. As far as how clean the dishes are, it does a great job for the most part. Every once in a while a dish will come out with small food particles still on it but this is a rare occupancy and only when the dishwasher is heavily overloaded. The only negative things i can find about the dishwasher is the build quality of the upper sliding rack and the detergent door.

This is my first dishwasher ever so i would not know how to compare it to others. I’ve had this product for a few weeks now and have an idea of how to use it. So i will break up my review into parts. Space, cleanliness, ease of use. Space:depending on what types of dishes you are going to do, it can pack a lot. For my first load, i packed the top filled with dirty glass ball jars, and the smallest glass containers on the white plastic grate. (i could fit up to 18 different sized jars on the top shelf alone)however, my regular dish loads are much different. If i cook everyday, i cook with two pots and two pans. In order to clean everything daily, i would have to run two dish loads a day just because of the clunky nature of the pots and pans (with their handles) i use.

Danby DDW1801MWP Portable Dishwasher, White : We got a call an hour before it was going to arrive. The danby dishwasher is performing tremendously well. Our dishwasher left detergent residue and never drained properly, this one is performing perfectly. No more second guessingwe also wanted to support danby because of the charitable nature of the ceo. He does in extremely good deeds like helping refugees find work at his wharehouse and provides for them in their greatest time of need. 5 stars for a great product, and feels good everytime i run a load, i think of all the good danby does:) 🙂 🙂 :).

So let me start by saying i bought this to prevent fights between whos doing dishes. So that being said it serves its purpose. Now i love the way it cleans. I mean my dishes are sparkling clean. However i was really hoping for dishes not to be soaked when they are done. I just leave the door open a let them air dry. But i feel for almost $500 they shouldnt come out soaked.

Good product for the money, reliable and stainless interior is a plus. This is my second of this item. The design is not perfect where the electric cord and water hose go together. Water hose can constrict and damage the electric cord if the user is not very careful.

The best thing about the danby is it is small; great for small kitchens. The worst thing about the danby is it is small. Having said that, it is fine for for one or two people. The hookup to the faucet is easy and only takes a few seconds. While operating, you can hear it. It’s not whisper quiet, but certainly not objectionable. The dishes come out clean and dry.
