My kitchen sink seemed to always be full even though I felt as if I washed dishes twice a day! My kitchen is relatively large but I couldn't see adding a built in dishwasher, so I've put off buying a dishwasher until I ran across the compact countertop EdgeStar Dishwasher. This has been one of the best investments I have ever made! Quiet, hooks directly up to the kitchen faucet, and washes a ton of dishes at once, I'm enjoying spending time with my girls rather than slaving away at the sink! I was able to hook everything up right out of the box, I had the hose leak in the back but that was because I hadn't tighten it enough, attaching the quick lock attachment to the faucet to run a load is simple and when it's finished it's easy to remove from the faucet. Highly recommend if you're on a budget or have limited kitchen space.
