About a year and a half ago my husband decided that we needed a dishwasher, that was really considerate of him considering he doesn't do dishes.
I had never owned or used a dishwasher before, I have always just washed and dried my dishes myself. Our house when we bought it two years ago, didn't have a dishwasher built in, and to have one built in I would lose some of my cabinet space, I didn't like that Idea.
Hubby went to HH Gregg and came home with the MayTag JetClean II Portable dishwasher. This dishwasher is great, it is a convertible style meaning in can be either used as a portable or it can be built in if later down the road we get another house which will accommodate a built in model.
This dishwasher has caster on the bottom for easy mobility, it's white in color with a wooden top, to use it you just roll it to you kitchen sink, connect the water hose to your faucet, plug in the power and TA DA, your ready to wash your dishes, it's that easy. When the dishwasher is draining it will drain right into you kitchen sink drain.
This is a full size dishwasher, with 4 wash cycles, heavy, normal, light or just rinse, 2-4-6 hour delay wash, it has wash, clean, sanitize (eliminates 99% of household bacteria that may be on dishes) and dry indicator lights. The upper rack can be removed if you need more room for taller items, you don't even have to rinse the dishes before putting them in here, the jets are strong enough to get all the food off. This dishwasher is very quiet running the only thing I have ever noticed is when it drains into the sink you hear like a big gush of water, but other than that you don't even hear it running.
I'm no expert when it comes to dishwashers but in my opinion this one is execellent and to be able to use it either portable or built in is wonderful.
