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!)

Works great and does what it's supposed to do

Comments about GE 24" White Portable Dishwasher:
We have had this dishwasher for about 3 months and it works great! It always gets the dishes really clean but you have to use good detergent like Cascade. With the cheap stuff it didn't get everything as clean and left lots of water spots. It has lots of room and is pretty quiet. The only thing I would change is the spacing on the racks is a little tight and it's difficult to put everything in there sometimes like a puzzle but it works.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very cheap quality
from Wilmington, DE
Bought the dishwasher from online pictures, had to have a portable dishwasher and was limited to your product and another brand, very disappointed in the quality and workmanship, removed packing adhesive from company and pain came off door corner on the first day. GE was a very good brand previously.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Tough on dirt
from Toledo, OH, United States
Bought this a couple of months ago. Upon my initial purchase the unit that arrived did not work, however, the situation was remedied. The unit that did not work was picked up and a new one delivered. The only annoying thing about the unit was the fact that I had to buy an adapter for my sink and I couldn't seem to find it anywhere. I ordered it online and had to wait another week to get started using the unit. Once the dishwasher was up and running it has worked well. It's easy to use and gets dirt and grease off my dishes without any trouble. The food disposal/grinder in the bottom does a nice job with bits of food that may be left on plates and pots or pans after cooking. I wish it would dry the dishes more during the dry cycle. Other than that the dishwasher has been dependable, easy to use, and efficient. Definitely happy with my purchase.
Not as many features as previous portable dishwash
from Greensboro, NC
It works well and certainly cleans dishes better than if done by hand - good job.
Great dishwasher that defines clean dishes
from Albany, WI, United States
I bought this few months ago. Reason for picking out this model was due to all the features for the money. Dishwasher had everything I wanted and more.
love my dishwasher
from Catonsville, MD, United States
Our new dishwasher is quiet and cleans the dishes nicely
Good for a portable dishwasher
from New England
Replacing a 35+ year old portable dishwasher. I like that it is water efficient but it does take an hour or more on the regular cycle before drying cycle begins..
from Mesa, AZ, United States
We have been using this dishwasher for almost two months now. It's a very basic D/W feature wise, but it does a good job of washing the dishes...even pots with caked on food seem to come clean most of the time. It's loud, but does a good job otherwise.

This was the biggest waste of money I could have bought. I had it for a month and it quit working. The part that was bad could not be replaced. I put the dishwasher out for the trash since I was told it couldn't be repaired.
from Iowa, United States
They don't make them like they used to but it work well and does what it needs to. I don't understand why it takes about 1 1/2 hours to wash a load.
