  The EdgeStar DWP51ES is an energy-efficient countertop dishwasher with a few of the features usually found only on built-in models, such as the ability to delay the start of a wash cycle, a child lock and a time remaining display. That's in addition to its six wash cycle choices -- heavy, normal, light, glass, speed, soak; an internal water heater to boost the temperature on the heavy cycle to 149 degrees Fahrenheit; and a dish rack, cup shelf and silverware basket. The manufacturer estimates this unit's noise levels at about 55 decibels, relatively quiet for a countertop dishwasher and comparable to many modern built-in dishwashers.
