I recently have moved to a new apartment and had to get rid of my portable Kenmore dishwasher due to lack of space. I am happy to say that this dishwasher works just as good as my older Kenmore did and it holds a good amount of dishes as well. I do not have very good water pressure in my apartment where I live and I was concerned that my new dishwasher wouldn't clean my dishes. Even with the water pressure being weak this dandy little beauty does the job and leaves my dishes clean and free of crusted and baked on food. I have not previously washed pots and pans in a dishwasher, but I got lazy one day and decided to throw my pans in the dishwasher and I was impressed with the outcome. I used the heavy clean button and a lot of the caked on food came off, I did not think this was possible. I would recommend this dishwasher to anyone with little space and in need of a handy, good old reliable dishwasher. I have always liked the Kenmore brand as it seems superior to most other brands in my experience. I have always tried to gravitate towards this brand and now I know why. Overall I am happy and glad that I made this purchase. My highest rating would go to the quality and make of this dishwasher. So if you need a dishwasher for a tight space try this one. Again very satisfied customer.
