Summary: The only ongoing irritation I've had with this thing was the digital controls: They're very un-intuitive and inflexible. I'd prefer a simple hardware dial for time with a couple of buttons for mode options.
Excerpt: Several years ago, I purchased the Danby Countertop Portable Dishwasher. We have limited space in our kitchen, and I thought this would help. I was right. This item set right on the counter and fit perfectly. It was easy to set up and to use. …
Great little dishwasher for apartments that don't come with one.
22 December 2013
Excerpt: This great little dishwasher sits under the cabinets, on the counter next to the sink and works out great in apartments that have no dishwasher. I bought ours online a few years ago and it is still going strong, with the exception of one replacement part that was not covered by the warranty.
Excerpt: I don't have this exact model but a very similar one by Danby (DDW497W). I must say, it is hands down, the best thing I have ever bought. It really does the dishes and because temp doesn't rise too high, I can even wash many items that are not dishwasher safe.
Summary: Danby will not honor the warranty. They cannot get parts from China to repair their products. They will not replace the dishwasher when broken, or fix it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT OR DO ANY BUSINESS WITH DANBY.
Summary: The dishwasher arrived without any dents or damage at all. It was very quick and easy to install - ingeniously, both the inlet and outlet hoses attach to the kitchen tap (with a quick-fit adapter) to avoid any problem with the outlet hose snaking when the machine drains - the tap holds the outlet...
Summary: Slight oversight when signing the lease on our apartment... no dishwasher... ooops. We've had this dishwasher a little over a week. It has been life changing. The dishes get done every night and the counters near the sink are finally uncluttered.
Summary: I live in a small studio apartment and the Danby Countertop Dishwasher is one of the best purchases I've made. I hate doing dishes and was thrilled the day my dishwasher arrived. So far, I've found much to like.
Summary: Positives: - This unit is really stingy with water - The dishes come out very clean. Negatives: - Made in China. You just can't escape it, anymore. - The pipe fittings on this are hard plastic. - Unit is large, noisy, and very slow. A typical wash takes roughly two hours. - The shipping was abysmal.
