  *As of September 2012, Avanti had stopped producing any counterop dishwashers; while the DW6W was still available from several retailers, supplies may be limited.
The Avanti DW6W is a basic countertop unit that should handle the dishwashing needs of one to two people, with about average or slightly better than average noise levels for countertop models. It offers six wash settings -- light, normal, heavy, glass, rapid and pre-wash -- and has automatic detergent and rinse-aid dispensers as well as a removable cutlery/silverware basket.
