  Slightly less than 18" wide, the SPT SD-9239W by Sunpentown International is a compact, energy-efficient portable dishwasher suitable for a small household of one to two people. It offers a variety of wash cycles varying from light- to heavy-duty, as well as a heated dry setting, the ability to delay the start of a wash cycle up to 24 hours, an adjustable (two position) upper rack and the ability to remove either the upper or lower rack entirely. This unit is typically considered relatively quiet to operate for a portable machine, although sound levels will vary depending on kitchen acoustics.

What People Are Saying:

With slightly more than a dozen user reviews online at various retailers, these portable dishwashers have garnered high marks from owners who say the machine is quiet, hooks up to the faucet quickly, rolls easily, get dishes clean, allows flexible loading for stemware or oversized items, and offers as many features and works as well as most built-in dishwashers. A few wish the rack tines were farther apart to hold fatter items like pot lids, but most term this a good machine for a small household that doesn't wash dishes daily.
