I'm a collage student and while I don't mind doing dishes by hand, sometimes it just gets tiring. Now before I bought this item I had no idea that they even made a counter top dish washer I always thought you had to get a big one installed. So when I was at target I came across the Danby Countertop Dishwasher for $179.99 and I had to pick it up.
This Countertop Dishwasher hooks right up to your sink so you just use tap water, I was under the impression that you had to hook it to the piping but I guess not. This Countertop Dishwasher works with all the detergents so you can basically was dishes like your using a large dishwasher.
This drys the plates great so you don't even have to dry them, the racks are adjustable so you can fit larger bowl and other stuff into it. This is about the size of a standard microwave so you could even run it on a rolling cart if you wanted to. This only comes in white so if you kitchen is stainless steal it might look out of place but it doesn't really matter if it does it job.
Overall this appliance is great if you have a small home or apartment without a dishwasher but you don't want to do them by hand.
