I love my new Maytag portable dishwasher ! I have owned it for 4 months now and it gets my dishes very clean, no matter what brand of dishwashing detergent I use. My husband and I live in a rental home that is very small, with limited cabinet space, so this portable dishwasher was perfect for us. I did not think portable dishwashers were around anymore. I am glad that Maytag offered one in the area I lived in that was also affordable. A name brand, good quality dishwasher was what I was looking for without paying a fortune. I noticed that on this website many of the portable dishwashers are discontinued. This upsets me I hope portable dishwashers stay around, because they are perfect for small homes or rental properties. My dishwasher is pretty quiet as I usually run it at night and cannot hear it. The time it takes to clean the dishes seems long to me , but I am not complaining. It is such a wonderful luxury to have this awesome machine in our home. We also have hard water where we live and our dishwasher still cleans very well.
