I live in an apartment and do not have room for a full size dishwasher. I absolutely hate doing dishes by hand so I decided to try the Danby Counter-Top Portable Dishwasher. I quickly began to regret this purchase. This was easy to set up and fit just fine on my counter. For my boyfriend and I the size was fine but if you have a large family it would be too small. The problems with this machine started from day one! The first time I used this, it did not fully clean my dishes so I had to run it twice. Running it twice was a frequent occurrence while I had this, because it simply did not clean well. One day the glass on the dishwashers' door simply fell out. We were able to get it back in because Danby actually had instructions on their website on how to fix the problem. After a while, I began to notice the machine leaking occasionally. One day I came home to find a pool of water filling my kitchen. That was the end of using that horrible dishwasher! Cleaning Time Since I usually had to run the machine more than once to clean my dishes, the cleaning time was long. Performance I had to frequently run the machine twice to get my dishes completely clean. Design The glass fell out of the front of my machine. After looking online I found out that it was a common problem because of a design flaw. Durability This dishwasher lasted a few months before it started having problems. It began to leak and then the glass fell out.
