  • Awesome Portable Dishwasher

    Dec 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Portable, hose storage in back of unit, countertop on unit, cleans beautifully.
    Cons: Doesn't put dishes away.

    Summary: The Danby DDW1805W replaced a Haier countertop dishwasher I've owned for 5 years.  My main reason for wanting a larger dishwasher was to be able to wash larger pots and pans which would not fit in the countertop unit.  My small ... read more

  • Danby, Tried and True

    Mar 3, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I give it 100% on every level. 
    Cons: After two years test-time, not a single thing to complain about.

    Summary: I bought the Danby Model #DDW1805W, and after testdriving it for two years,  it has given excellent service, 0 problems.  For my slightly-larger-than-galley style kitchen, the hose and electrical cord are more than ample in length, and the ... read more

  • High Quality Dishwasher for Renters (and others)

    Dec 14, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans very well, hooks to any normal kitchen faucet, really heats the water
    Cons: Smaller than your usual dishwasher, possibility of blowing off sprayer hose

    Summary: If you are a man or woman who, on account of deep financial foresight, predicted the collapse of housing prices and thus chose to rent - well then, you've saved enough for a dishwasher. In fact, if you're any sort of renter or other individual who wants ... read more

  • TERRIBLE faucet attachment, but washes well at a good price

    May 14, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Washes dishes well, uses little water
    Cons: Faucet attachment comes apart regularly

    Summary: I have been using the dishwasher for about 2.5 weeks. It washes my dishes well and quickly -- less than 30 minutes. I have only used the quickest wash cycle, which has been more than enough to clean my dishes. Keep in mind that my dishes haven't been ... read more

  • Great space-saver

    Apr 26, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Wicked cleansing power, size
    Cons: Hose length

    Summary: Our apartment did not come equipped with a dishwasher, so my husband and I decided it was time to look for a portable dishwasher. You see, we both HATE WASHING DISHES. I detest the amount of time it takes and the counterspace it requires while the dishes ... read more

  • Does the job

    Mar 24, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to set up. Cleans dishes effectively, portable, small.
    Cons: expensive, needs salt, slow

    Summary: I hesitated buying this company's dishwasher at first cause I didn't know them, and was suspicious of a dishwasher that isn't sold in stores only online. But after having a horrible experience with the Kenmore's portable dishwasher, I decided to listen ... read more

  • Slim, Trim and Tough

    Jul 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Slim, neat, low water consumption, fits more dishes than most, and cleans extremely well.
    Cons: Some cycles are extremely long; the Shorter cycle recommended for most loads.

    Summary: I previously owned a Danby Countertop dishwasher and I loved it. My kitchen was tiny and I had very little space, and Danby allowed me to own a dishwasher that was just as tough on dirty dishes as a full sized one. I had it for over five years, and it ... read more

  • I have joined the disgruntled club of faucet attachment victims

    May 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I hate doing dishes by hand....hate it. THis obviously does that for me.
    Cons: I also HATE the faucet attachment

    Summary: One of my only great concerns when I bought this dishwasher was regarding the faucet attachment. I found a comment made in Nov. of 2004, as well as another about a year or 2 ago, (and others on other sites) and these comments addressed the cheap, ... read more

  • Great Machine

    Jan 12, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Danby customer service, Capacity, Small size, Quick wash time with fast cycle.
    Cons: Would like the hoses to be longer and/or a standard diameter connector to facilitate lengthening.

    Summary: I got this for our 100 year old home's small kitchen. After about 3 weeks of use I've found it's a terrific machine. It is small enough to fit into a nook we have. But it holds an amazing amount. The interior is very similar to the Bosch we had at ... read more

  • Amazing Little Machine!!!

    Sep 17, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Space Saver Sparkling Clean Dishes Saves Water and Detergent Easily Serviceable Great Customer Support
    Cons: Lengthy Cycle Slightly Cryptic Controls Irregular Racks Working Parts Exposed Underneath Short Cord and Hose

    Summary: After living for 8 months in an apartment where we had to do dishes by hand, my partner and I swore that we would NEVER live in a place that didn't have a dishwasher ever again. Well, as I've learned, never say never. When a job promotion forced us ... read more

  • A great dishwasher where space is at a premium and your budget is tight

    May 26, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well built, nice quality, does the job at a very reasonable price.
    Cons: Some minor annoyances (noise and cycle time) but nothing to preclude a positive recommendation.

    Summary: I did some extensive research before I bought the Danby model DDW1805W and relied on the reviews here on Epinions.com. Well, now it is my turn to return the favor. I've had the dishwasher for about a month now and after carefully unpacking it and ... read more

  • The mini-Miele?

    Feb 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Simple to use, stainless steel construction, solid
    Cons: Initial leak

    Summary: I’ve said it before and I know that I’ll say it again – the man who designed our Loft is an idiot. An absolute idiot. Masses of space was wasted and none more than in the kitchen – where we have an over-abundance of cabinets, lots of free space hanging ... read more

  • Very Disappointed

    Jul 25, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: slimline design, washes well, ease of use.
    Cons: Poor quality wheels Extremely poor customer service

    Summary: I purchased my Danby 18" portable dishwasher in February of 2005. My kitchen is small and a built in unit simply would not fit. A small portable was the answer, I have a small pantry closet which the portable dishwasher could easily fit, only 2 feet ... read more

  • Superior Dishwasher, minimal space and price! UPDATED

    May 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well Built, Stainless Steel Interior, Quiet Operation, Super Clean Dishes, Great Price, uses little water.
    Cons: Short Hose, Odd faucet adapter, one wheel keeps popping off it's axel.

    Summary: I used to sell dishwashers at Sears. I've owned several built in full sized dishwashers, even a stainless steel Bosch. This is the first one I am 'giddy' over. I recently downsized to move to Manhattan, which meant getting a small kitchen with no ... read more

  • A Real Lifesaver!

    Nov 21, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low water usage, easy to use, stainless steel interior
    Cons: None

    Summary: We recently downsized our household and moved into an older home without a dishwasher. Our home is located in the country and so isn't hooked up to the city sewer system, only a leach line which severely limits the amount of water we can use each day. ... read more

  • Danby is Dandy

    Nov 6, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superior cleaning, excellent quality (stainless steel interior), easy to use, relatively quiet, good customer service.
    Cons: Possible draining issues, complete cycle is very long.

    Summary: My old apartment had a Magic Chef dishwasher built-in, and I got so very accustomed to it. I moved in August, and while I love my new place, having no dishwasher was rather depressing, what with how much I cook. Armed with reviews from epinions.com, I ... read more

  • Should have bought this a long time ago !!

    Oct 31, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Twin spray arms Stainless Steel Liner Easy to Clean food trap Low Water use
    Cons: Too many prongs on upper rack Top chips and marks easily Long Cycles

    Summary: What a great product. We have an exceptionally small kitchen and cannot afford to lose any cupboard space required for a permanent unit. There also is not enough room in front of the sink to have a 24" portable sitting there. We came across this ... read more

  • SPEND TIME ON THINGS YOU LIKE & LESS ON DISHES!! FOR PEOPLE WITH BUSY SCHEDULES.

    Jun 16, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, portable, sturdy, dependable. Holds many items, lower racks adjustable and flatware basket removable.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I live in a small apartment, so space is most certainly an issue for me. I want to admit, that for the past five years, my family and I have used paper plates and plastic cups and plastic utensils, just because I did not want to wash dishes! I have ... read more

  • Pleasantly Surprised

    May 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smart design. Dishes come out super clean. Very space-efficient.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: I hate to do dishes. So much so that for years, I would host dinner parties and serve my guests on the fanciest plastic plates I could find... So much so that even after I got married, and my wife and I registered for a set of dishes we really liked, ... read more

    Pros: many positive reviews
    Cons: not many negative reviews, not many neutral reviews
