Wash up to six standard place settings on your countertop with the EdgeStar 6 Place Setting Countertop Dishwasher in Silver (DWP61ES). Standing just over 17 inches tall, this compact countertop dishwasher has a low profile that fits comfortably under most cabinetry without permanent installation required. The dishwasher uses only 200 kilowatt hours per year - approximately 61% less energy than similar countertop dishwashers. In addition to saving energy, this model wastes very little water, which can save you a lot of money on your water and energy bills. Extremely easy to operate, this EdgeStar dishwasher features an LED display with full digital controls including a child lock function, six wash cycle programs, and a delayed start feature so you can wash dishes when you want. A stainless steel interior makes the dishwasher look good no matter where it is, while a powerful spray arm ensures a deep and thorough wash of all your dishes. The built-in rinse agent dispenser helps to minimize water spotting on dishes, while an internal water heater and the heavy wash cycle eliminate germs and bacteria by boosting water temperature up to 149 degrees Fahrenheit. Optimized for holding up to six place settings, this compact dishwasher comes with a cutlery basket and cup shelf for added organization. With a quick connect faucet adapter and five-foot hose to make hook-up to almost any faucet simple, this dishwashing machine will be up to the job of cleaning those dirty dishes.
Top Customer Reviews
One of the things a lot of people criticize in the reviews here is that the shortest setting is 10 minutes for a freshwater rinse, or for a regular wash cycle you can use the 45 minute cycle - many seem to complain that there isn't a mid-length cycle in between these. Well, it's true that some dishwashers have one, but generally speaking, most don't and take somewhere between 30-60 minutes to wash a load. I think there is a tendency to think that because the unit is compact and does smaller loads, that it might inherently do them faster - I understand where this presumption comes from, but if you think about it, that really doesn't make sense and it's actually normal and acceptable that the unit takes just as long as any other basic model dishwasher for a full and proper wash cycle. I'm not trying to criticize people for wanting a shorter cycle, I'm just saying, for those of you considering buying a mini-dish washer, it would be wise to adjust your expectations accordingly - they're generally smaller, but that doesn't mean faster.
It does internally heat the water which really helps dissolve the soap and wash away greasy dishes. I haven't actually used the longer wash cycles (70 minutes, and 1hr 45 minutes I think?) because I always just soak my pots and pans in the sink anyway - but normal dishes as clean as could be on the shorter, 45 minute wash cycle. I just give things a quick rinse before I put them in there, but I don't pre soak normal dishes or anything, and they always come out perfect, peanut butter, pasta sauce, wine, tea, coffee - everything comes out sparkling. I even use only half the detergent recommended, Costco dish-washing powder, (it's my habit to minimize, reduce, and conserve), but everything always comes out great anyway. I have high mineral well-water, so doing a load daily, I add a half cup of white vinegar to the start of a cycle once a week to keep the nice steel interior clean and looking new.
The clearance between the wash arm at the bottom and the rack is a little smaller than full sized dishwashers, I've found it wise to bump it with my finger to make sure it doesn't strike any dishes sticking down below the rack before I start it up to wash a load - just as one might with any other dishwasher.
-Not noisy, operates and a comfortable 'medium-quiet' volume. i.e. it's not near-silent like a $2000 stainless steel European dishwasher, but it also doesn't roar disruptively. I'm in college and study in the room next to the open kitchen while it's running, so if that's any indicator?
-It's stainless steel inside, which I thought was a nice touch of quality, especially for an affordable, compact model.
-It's smaller and does smaller loads (which is the purpose, right?) but all around, I don't find that one has to sacrifice anything for the convenience of having this compact model. Same sound, same wash, same soap, smaller size - that's it.
My only "complaint" is that if you disconnect the hose while it's washing in order to use your kitchen faucet for something real quick, and then reconnect it and forget to turn the water back on, the dishwasher will beep and show an "E1" error on the display when it tries to do it's next rinse, but it won't resume washing if you hear the beep and then turn the water on - rather, you'll get the beep, the "E1" error message (which means no water pressure), and then have to reset the 45 minute wash cycle back to the beginning and start over. This is being very nit-picky, and I'm not really trying to make a complaint out of it, as generally, I start it before I go to bed so I've only caused this interruption twice and it really didn't inconvenience me when it happened anyway. I'm really not actually mentioning it to "complain" about it, but it seemed relevant to mention for you all to set your expectations accordingly, since that's what reviews of good products are really for (my opinion). With that, I am content to give it 5 stars and think that overall, you'll enjoy and appreciate this thing - I've genuinely been very happy with it across the board.
I hope this helps. :)
It's pathetic, I'm so good with caring for and putting my power and hand tools away when I'm done with them, but ever since I was a little kid I remember screaming matches with my mom because I HATED doing dishes!
It has become a joke when I tell my friends that I have to "SHOVEL the dishes tonight" . SO about a week ago I had had enough. One night I plunked in "Portable Dishwashers" and up popped this little surprise. I'd never seen a dwarf dishwasher before and though intrigued, I wasn't convinced it was worthwhile until I read the FIRST PATHETIC PERSONS REVIEW!! LOL! I gotta tell ya, I spent days reading all the reviews ... BELLY laughing out loud that there are actually other "closet" pitiful people out there JUST LIKE ME! They have all paid the ultimate price by probably spending the days trying to motivate themselves, all mostly in denial. THEN LIKE ME, they knuckle under out of desperation mind you, and finally carve out the 3 hours of time (time for me I'd rather spend working on my house)... to stand in front of that damn sink: sorting ....rinsing...and organizing dirty dishes EVEN BEFORE I can start to WASH them by hand.
I'm here to tell you that I have been counting the hours for this machine to arrive. I've watched the tracking diligently and today was the day and I watched FedEx drive into the driveway! And, I t was just in time, because I was down to one plate and one glass! So I was ready to put it to the test.
No visible shipping damage before unpacking... Great..That's a good start for such a miserably sized cumbersome box with NO handle knock outs on the protective outer box for the FedEx dudes and dudettes to help muscle it with. I actually watched him roll this off his van's step and push it onto the ground it's so hard for them to manage... BUT it survived that test. CHECK!
It certainly was packed well and i didn't see any internal packaging damage. I really appreciated all the use of the very inventive use of cardboard packing that can be recycled, that keeps it safe in transit. KUDOS! BUT...uh oh...there's a sheet metal ding on the back vertical 90 degree edge some 6" above the drain. The impact not only wrinkled the sheet metal but pushed it far enough that the back panel got wrinkled too!... BUT THIS VISUAL DAMAGE ISN'T STOPPING ME! This baby's got work to do!. Clearly this damage happened at the factory, SO HEY... EDGESTAR... jack your QC people up!
Onward, easy to unpack, faucet adaptor even fits my fancy faucet, good instructions, easy to set up ..CHECK CHECK CHECK! Something MUST be wrong with this thing, right? Well I ran the 10 minute rinse watching it closely drinking a ceremonial beer, thinking it was going to sound like a DC-10 taxiing to the runway...or leak like a sive. But I was amazed! So I ran to the store and bought my favorite dishwasher products (you see I DO remember what it was like owning a dishwasher almost a DECADE ago!!) ...loaded it up for the first time, using the gel style cascade and jet-dry... Turned it on ...and I've got 15 minutes left on the first run for this little beauty! I am overwhelmed. Next to tears actually, that I didn't get on it and buy this baby years ago!
When I do move to the upstairs of my home and bring all my appliances up into the new kitchen, this fabulous midget machine is going to keep on working as the dishwasher right where it is for the lobby/bar for my theater room.
Yes it looks nice, not stainless on the outside, but it is very acceptable. In the next weeks after I'm 100% convinced it's not just a dream, I'm going to permanently install it by the sink.
Wow, if you are a single person no matter what age, busy with life ...and HATE doing dishes, AND you are sitting on the fence thinking you don't need a dishwasher... THIS DISHWASHER... You are wrong! And now, I even have time to sit town and type out why you're wrong!
I hope this thing lasts and lasts and lasts!
OH... ITS BEEPING! Only 2-3 more loads to go to get caught up tonight and then I bet I won't need to run it but twice a week if that! Gotta go! I'll let you know how the permanent installation goes. What a relief I'm feeling. It's going to lower my STRESS level enormously! Well worth the money just for that!
