This D/W has changed my life! I have a small older kitchen with not a lot of time to wash dishes! I used to spend 30-40+ minutes a day and waste a lot of water doing it by hand. My hands would burn from even sensitive dish soap. My nails were breaking/peeling. Now I spend max. 1-3 minutes a day washing a pot by hand, steak knives, or something not D/W safe. And dishes don't back up like they used to in the small kitchen, taking over counter-tops. I have my sanity back! This dishwasher is great and it's our first one. Our kitchen is small, has VERY few lower cabinets, and a pricey kitchen redo was out of the question, so this fit the bill. I didn't get one for a while b/c a) I didn't know they exist! and b) once I did, I wanted a new kitchen versus this, with a built-in. Man was I wrong...this is full size 24" unit and works wonderfully, only a little louder than built-ins, and not that hard to hookup (one of my major concerns!). Hookup: (I've included pictures!) Take off your aerator on your faucet (only have to do once initially), put on this silver attachment and tighten (barely noticeable), and when it comes time to wash dishes, plus the A/C cable into wall, and put connection on faucet (pull back, push onto faucet attachment, release). Always make sure the faucet's over the sink, not on the lip to prevent water from splashing on counter-tops. After a few tries the hookup is easier. It even has a 'red button' to allow you to use (HOT water) while the dishes are being washed! Cleans dishes beautifully and most important SANITIZES! My son's sippy cups were so dirty, smelly, and nearly impossible to clean by hand thoroughly. I should have gotten it sooner!Extra bonus: the top is a wood laminate which is so easy to clean! And doubles as counter-top. Easy to roll to sink, not heavy to push. Have had it 3 weeks: only tiny issue is the front panel's plastic has one corner that's come apart from the machine slightly but glue is probably all it needs. Only neg: I found it a little hard to take out the hookup cable as it does retract into the unit each day. Daily it's a little struggle but it's doable for the ease of not doing dishes by hand! (I gave this great product 5 stars because as a portable it's A+. The only better would be a built-in.)Buy it, you will not be let down. [...] See my added pictures. I wanted to add more but Abt.com only lets you add two. Inside of unit is STANDARD like any other.To: 'No more dishpan hands': this dishwasher's no different from any other. You can use powder, liquid, or the new 'tabs'. I have used the tabs exclusively and they work great and are a lot easier. I only used the powder when I used up the free sample; powder's a pain.

Bought this for a second home that has a small kitchen.The upper basket is too shallow, not even regular wine glasses can be accommodated. Lower basket is clumsy to load, not much room because center must remain open for the spray arm that telescopes up. Dishes even with the pots & pans cycle very often are not clean even if prewashed by hand. This is not a good product and I thorougly regret having bought it. (What a difference to the Bosch dishwasher that I own - for pretty much the same price!)

Great machine odd changes
from Bronx, NY, United States
I got rid of my old version of this machine after 10 years or so when it didn't drain well. The new machine has a bunch of changes that save the company, but cheapen the machine. The fill cap for the Jet Dry doesn't have a see through cover so you don't know if you need to add rinse agent. There are less controls, but this doesn't matter to me. I just fill the machine and it cleans. There is no indicator light telling you the machine is running. This may have saved a dollar for GE but it irritates me. From the changes I suspect that in ten years when I want to replace it GE will probably no be manufacturing this lovely machine. We'll see when the time comes.

I am very happy with my Ge portable dishwasher and I will be more than happy to tell my family and friends.

Does a wonderful job, just a bit smal l.needs to comega in larger size.
poor design and mediocre performance
from Indianapolis, IN, United States
Although the same exterior dimensions as my previous dishwashers of another brand, this will not hold nearly as much. For instance, the two parts of a standard size pasta cooker will only fit on the bottom rack, requiring removal of the silverware tray; on previous dishwashers, those two parts would fit easily a couple of different ways without removing the silverware tray and with a lot more room left for other items. Cleaning is mediocre compared to those previous washers, and items placed at the corners of the top rack tend not to get cleaned. This machine does not have mid- or top-level spray arms, just a bottom spray arm with a pop-up that requires the centers of both racks be kept clear. The top rack is not sloped or adjustable, so it's very limited. The low-profile tines do not hold most items securely, so plates and bowls fall over.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Works very well

Easy to use and does a nice job with the dishes and pans
from Detroit, MI, United States
I bought this dishwasher almost a year ago and it works great! Very easy features and convenient with a small kitchen. The dishes are much more clean then when we would hand wash them.
Not five star
I bought this model because we needed a portable due to space issues and because I was happy with the last two we've owned. However, I was disappointed in the construction of this new dishwasher. It is very cheaply made. Some of the edges are sharp and could, potentially, cause injury. Also, the hose attachment does not store flush to the back. As a result, the unit does not push flat against the wall. Without some sort of "stop", I have gouges in the drywall. Maybe it would be better to return to the old design.

Great portable dishwasher
We've owned this dishwasher for about 4 months now and we're very happy with it. Easy to use. Gets all our dishes clean. We have to use it once a day. I would definitely recommend this dishwasher.
