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!)

Comments about GE 24" Black Front Portable Dishwasher:
I like how easy the dishwasher is lightweight and easy to move around. I clean every day dishes, silverware, pots, and pans. It cleans very well but doesn't dry as well.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was very prompt. The delivery guys were very polite, helpful, and informative of what to do if there was a problem with the dishwasher. They also let me know if there were any scratches from delivery I was going to get a discount on my purchase or they could reorder me one.
my new portable dishwasher

About Me Avid Cook
I purchaced this thinking it was a good buy but when i got it it looks nothing like I thought the drawers to put the dishes in are to small and don't allow me to put many dirty dishes in. It isn't the size of the machine rather the size of the area inside that don't allow normal cups to fit in place. There is a huge area thet nothing really fits and makes me think this design was an utter failure. I also think that if you buy a new appliance that it should be quite but it's anything but!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Needs a top spray arm
from Norwalk, CT, USA
I've had this dishwasher for about 3 years and it is starting to leak a few drops water on the floor and the white vinel racks already have rust spots and I am very gentle loading dishes I think I got a lemon. If I do not leave a big enough space in the center of the top rack clear, the tops of my coffee cups have alot of little food particals on them, this did'nt happen with our old ge dishwasher, it had a top spray arm this model only has one spray arm at the bottem. I've also noticed a gritty feel on my glasses, turns out I was using too much detergent, you only need to fill the main wash cup a little less then half way with most city waters, I fill the open cup all the way. I tried other detergents and action packs and had the best luck with cascade complete or advanced powder the pots and pans cycle and my water heater set at about 130 F. I'm getting a new g.e dishwasher soon the next model up with 3 spray arms because I've had great luck with other ge appliances and g.e's customer service.

Good price, good dishwasher
By Anna the Casual Cook
from Boston, MA
The good: easy to use, wheels over to the sink for very easy connection to the sink without disruption to sink usage, dishes become nicely clean, not very noisy, decent size, works well for two-person family who eats in 5 times a week.The not-so-good: spacing on bottom rack has a hard time fitting anything but plates.
Prompt delivery, easily scheduled drop off with deliverer. Dishwasher arrived in good condition.
Abt was awsome but the dishwasher sucks!
Doesn't clean well no matter how few dishes you put in it!
Delivery was awesome and professional
