The Danby DDW1801MWP is an 18-inch portable dishwasher made for small families and households. Our system has surveyed reviews of this specific model, and found that it has gained an over-all rating of (rating temporarily unavailable) stars from these said reviews.

According to its buyers, its internal layout makes it accommodate dishes well for a portable dishwasher. However, when it comes to clunky pots and pans, it has earned disapproval from some reviewers. Apparently, this dishwasher has been optimized for the usual plates, bowls, and flatware, but it's not as accommodating for oddly-shaped items. Another complaint is that the silverware basket is also a bit too big on its own, but it looks like Danby may have foreseen this, hence their decision to design the basket in such a way that it can be taken apart and converted into a smaller basket, which is a definite plus in terms of usability and versatility -- characteristics that are always well-appreciated in portable small dishwashers.

Performance-wise, it has earned the reputation of being a model that is reliable in cleaning and rinsing well. However, it doesn't escape the issue that appears to be prevalent in a lot of modern dishwashers -- that of its inability to completely dry dishes. In fact, one buyer even said that his dishes were "soaked" after a cycle. Another issue we have come across is its selectivity in faucets, which means that there is a high chance that you would have to buy an additional faucet adapter, should you decide to buy this model.

The Danby DDW1801MWP may have performed well in its cleaning and space-saving duties as a portable dishwasher, but its shortcomings proved to be a hindrance to successfully gaining a spot in our top 2 portable dishwashers list.

The Whirlpool ADP301IX boasts features that are quite uncommon to freestanding slimline dishwashers like itself, such as a Hygiene Rinse cycle option and modular racks -- in addition to more familiar specs like a 49dBA noise rating and 10 place settings.

The SPT SD-9241W is a portable 18-inch dishwasher that has garnered a combined rating of (rating temporarily unavailable) stars from the reviews that our review crawler has scanned. According to many of these reviews, this model cleans dishes thoroughly, but extra-dirty dishes still have to be scraped and pre-rinsed for optimal results. In addition, it has gained fans for being simple and easy to operate -- probably due to its lack of bells and whistles in the first place.

In spite of its 55dBA maximum noise level (which is a noisier-than-average value, but is quite common among small dishwashers like itself), many of the feedback we have scanned claim that the SPT SD-9241W runs quietly. In addition, it stays true to its promise as a portable dishwasher, since it has earned the reputation of being easy to hook up and attach to various faucet types.

On the flip side, some complaints we have seen regarding this model say that it has run times that are too long. Granted, dishwashers that completely escape this particular protest are rare, but several customers have pointed out that its cycle times are indeed longer than those of comparable dishwashers. In addition, its rack setup is apparently hard to work with for some people, causing the loading capacity to be compromised. One even insisted that the difficulty he has experienced in fitting in items is due to the rack setup, and not the size of the machine itself. Another review also said that this dishwasher "does not fit the amount of dishes it should." With that said, if you have dishes that deviate from the usual shape and size, then this is an issue that you would have to look into further.

Claiming to be able to withstand rigorous environments due to its reinforced casing, the Westland DWV322CB further builds on its claims of being an RV- and boat-friendly dishwasher, with specs like a 2.4-gallon water consumption per wash and a countertop-friendly height of 17.25 inches
