  At 20.5" wide (compared to 24" for most built-in models), the Frigidaire FFPD1821MW is a relatively compact, energy-efficient portable dishwasher that should clean a typical load for a small household of one to three people, although fitting in oversized items might be challenging. The FFPD1821MW has a stainless steel interior and nylon racks; offers six cycle choices ranging from delicate china to heavy-duty pots and pans; allows the user to delay the start of a wash cycle for one to three hours; and includes the option of a heated drying cycle. Noise levels should be about average for portable dishwashers, neither whisper-quiet nor overwhelming loud.

Models: FFPD1821MW (White), FFPD1821MB (Black)
