leaks like a SIEVE


Please read all of the reviews before considering this product. I bought this unit because there is absolutely no way or room for a portable or built in unit in my studio apartment. A countertop model was my only choice. First, if you follow the ...

Great Dishwasher - Bad Reliability


I'm on my 3rd Danby countertop dishwasher. I love the dishwasher when it works, but the durability isn't that great. On the positive side, the dishwasher does a great job cleaning dishes. I never really have to pre-rinse dishes. What's ...

Great cleaning job, low water/detergent use

Durability, hoses laying around on counter

Worth its Weight in Gold!


My wife is a United States Marine. When she was deployed to Iraq in January of 2003, I was involuntarily thrust back into a life of cleaning for myself. Having grown accustomed to a military cleaning routine, the only places I found myself lacking were...

Saves a man from performing domestic labor. EXTREMELY Reliable.

Thermonuclear containment gear required to extract flatware upon cycle completion.

Works well, not so durable


I've had my Danby for under a year. It does a good job of cleaning the dishes, surprisingly even on cooked on pasta. However it doesn't clean as well when there are are many food particles in the wash. This is because there is only one spray arm ...

Cleans well- Saves water, detergent and space

Timer gets stuck - durability issues- Can't have too many food particles

If you can't stand the heat...


get one of these in your kitchen! I had minimal expectations for a compact dishwasher, but I was really impressed by the effectiveness and available options on this unit. My mother's very expensive dishwasher doesn't get her dishes as clean, as ...

Relevant Cycle Options, Functional Design, Powerful cleaning, Sanitizing Mode

Length of hookup cords (power and water), sticky guide rollers.

Danby Loves Students


Sure, washing dishes is not that difficult. However, finding the time is another story. Also, I am clean-freak on the molecular level. Thus, my reasoning for spending money on what some of my friends consider a non-vital appliance. I've owned this ...

Fits on a counter, cleans well, minimal cost, uses little water

Takes up counter space, little loud

Great Dishwasher -- Highly Recommended!


I bought my Danby dishwasher back in April of 2005. It has been a great appliance so far! I use it approximately 2 or 3 times a week. With clever and careful placement, you can actually wash saucepans and skillets in the dishwasher, too. The ...

Quiet, saves water/energy, cleans well, reasonably priced, good customer service.

instruction manual not very clear sometimes regarding certain issues, rinse agent dispenser not working (?)

good LITTLE Unit - has some flaws!


Update - April 2008: We have replaced the door twice now. The first replacement lasted for quite a while, but it finally started leaking at the window. I had ordered a "spare" replacement door last time because they were so inexpensive, and this time I...

Makes quick work of the dishes - and its nice to get that Squeeky clean.

Standard config is hard to load disheswindow option unit is not worth the money

Very Happy With My Danby!


So far I have been very pleased with my dishwasher. It really does clean dishes well. It runs quietly and cannot be heard outside of the kitchen. The faucet adapter works fine -- you just screw it onto your existing faucet and then hook the ...

Takes up little space, runs quietly, saves me from having to do dirty dishes!

Hose hanger on back of unit is not practical and not necessary.

Fabulous for the bargain price!


I got this dishwasher a couple of months ago and I love it! It's SO nice not to hand-wash a lot of dishes now, especially with my dry, chapped, winter-time hands. I just HATE washing dishes and couldn't stand it anymore - especially when I discovered ...

Great price, quiet, small, holds lots of dishes, easy hookup, attractive, very convenient

Few dishes may come out dirty ; no beep to alert you at the end
