Summary: I really like how simple this is to use the only problem I have is that my large plates don't fit very well into it. I say large but I feel like they are regular dinner plate size. I have had two different sets of plates and both were the same way.
Summary: I bought this dishwasher in August of 2007. It worked well for about a year. My only complaint was that glasses placed in the corners often came out dirtier than they started, and if our water pressure got low, it didn't clean very well at all.
Summary: We've bought two Danby countertop dishwashers. We used the first one for about 3 years, until it stopped pumping water. We replaced it with another Danby, as we'd been happy with the first. The second Danby began leaking water quickly and severely.
Summary: I am a sixth year physics graduate student. I wish I had known a countertop dishwasher existed sooner! I actually do my dishes now! This would have been a Godsend when I was preparing for my qualifying exam, and I will love having it as I'm writing up my thesis.
Summary: Got this dishwasher to satisfy the wife until we can get a full sized appliance. I thought the Danby would be good due to it's small size and water saving features. Purchased in September, 2007, and everyhting went fine for about 8 months - It was a bit small for normal sized plates, but seemed to...
Summary: Loved the Danby, but there's a crucial design flaw. We had a burning smell for a month that we couldn't pinpoint, and it turned out that it was from our Danby. Thankfully we caught it before it caught our house on fire, but on the last wash wisp-like burnt plastic started floating in the air and...
Summary: Some great feedback and tips here already, so without repeating to much, here are extra points: There is an improved unit, the (Danby DDW497W). Looks like the same mechanicals, but with fancier/easier controls (including delayed start).
Summary: I have had the dishwasher a few weeks now. It doesn't quite hold all it says it can but I just run it a little more often. I love not seeing dishes in the sink and it fits on my counter just right.
Summary: was it worth the price? yes, but then i am a lazy, lazy man. things it will clean well: ceramics, glassware, not much else. if you have dinnerware made out of the right materials, this is the right dishwasher for you. great unit, easy to install, leak free.
