  The energy-efficient countertop SPT SD-2201W by Sunpentown International should handle the dishwashing needs for a household of one or two people, without making a tremendous amount of noise. At 17.24" high it should fit between standard-height kitchen counters and cabinets (always measure carefully before ordering, because it can be a tight fit) and offers six wash cycles -- light, normal, heavy, glass, speed/quick wash and soak. It comes with a dish rack and silverware basket, a built-in hose and a faucet connector (which might not work with all faucets).

Models: SD-2201W (White), SD-2201S (Silver)

What People Are Saying:

Online user reviews are primarily positive, with most giving this countertop dishwasher high marks, saying it's easy to set up and use, cleans as well as a full-size machine and is relatively quiet for a countertop model, although many note it can be challenging to fit in tall dinner plates or a lot of dishes. The 5%-10% who dislike this machine report repeated problems with leaks or with the soap dispenser and other parts, or say it doesn't get the dishes clean and is hard to load.
