Portable Wheeled Dishwashers Prices, Reviews and Specifications

     
 


For tenants whose rental unit doesn't include a dishwasher or homeowners whose kitchen layouts won't allow a built-in model, a portable wheeled dishwasher can be moved around on casters and connects to the sink with two hoses (for incoming and draining water). Most portables are standard kitchen-counter height and 18"-20" wide, but a few are 24" wide and can be converted to a built-in format if needed.

 
 
Frigidaire FFPD1821MW Portable Wheeled Dishwasher
$570-$699
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. [See Prices, Reviews and Specifications]
 
GE GLC5604VWW Portable Wheeled Dishwasher
$629-$749
The GE GLC5604VWW is an energy-efficient, large-capacity portable dishwasher that has the potential to convert to being a built-in, under-counter model. It has a number of features found on built-in dishwashers, including a laser sensor that adjusts the wash cycle based on debris in the water; dedicated silverware jets; a steam prewash setting to loosen tough soils before a cycle starts; a sanitizing rinse cycle; fold-down tines in the lower rack for flexible loading; an audible end-of-cycle signal; and a natural convection heated-dry option. The GLC5604VWW should be relatively quiet for a portable unit, neither overly loud nor whisper-quiet. [See Prices, Reviews and Specifications]
 
Kenmore 1465 Portable Wheeled Dishwasher
$570-$710
With a stainless steel tub and nylon racks, the Kenmore 1465 is an energy-efficient and compact (18" wide) wheeled dishwasher that should handle moderate dishwashing needs for a household of up to four people, although fitting in oversized or odd-shaped items might be challenging. The 1465 offers a choice of six wash cycles ranging from gentle to heavy duty, plus a high-temperature wash option and the ability to delay the start of the wash cycle for two or four hours. Noise levels should be about average, depending on kitchen acoustics. [See Prices, Reviews and Specifications]
 
Kenmore 1772 Portable Wheeled Dishwasher
$600-$710
The Kenmore 1772 is a portable wheeled dishwasher that is the same 24" width as conventional built-in machines; it should handle the dishwashing needs of an average family. Its tall tub design will accommodate large platters and pots better than most portable models, and the laminate top serves as additional counter space. Other features include a heavy-duty Pots and Pans cycle, a high temperature wash setting and a heated dry option. Noise levels will depend in part on kitchen acoustics, but should be about mid-range for portable machines, neither overly loud or whisper-quiet. [See Prices, Reviews and Specifications]

Whirlpool DP1040XTXQ Portable Wheeled Dishwasher

This is a basic machine without a lot of bells and whistles, but it does provide more capacity than most portables, and offers a variety of wash cycles ranging from rinse only to heavy soil.
