The only ongoing irritation I've had with this thing was ...

Hoby, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • 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.

Great little dishwasher for apartments that don't come with one.

MichaelRash, Viewpoints

  • 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.

Couldn't ask for more.

  • 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.

WON'T HONOR WARRANTY, CAN'T GET PARTS

DV, Amazon
9 November 2012
  • 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.

Good Dishwasher

Artemesia, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • 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...

Life Changing

Andrea, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • 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.

Excellent Appliance with Some Minor Flaws

Gregg Hillier, Amazon
27 August 2011
  • 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.

Aside from shipping, it's fine

Steeev, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • 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.
