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" White Portable Dishwasher:
We had an older version of the same product for @ 8 years. Was used for @5 times a week the entire time with no breakdowns until the end when the seals & pump went out. The cost of replacement was only @ $150 more than that of repair.

from Rockaway, NJ
Great cleaning machine! Love the features and different options
from dousman, wi
Very disappointing performance. Does not readily remove dried on food, usually need to soak before washing. Dishes do not feel clean. Not enough height on upper rack to position glasses or bowls.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Fits our needs!
from New york
The dishes are sparkling clean! this is our second GE dishwasher and we love it.
Top rack a joke!
from Hillsboro, WI, United States
Purchased this about a month ago, it cleans well if I use the pots/pans cycle but not so good on the regular cycle. The top rack cannot even accommodate a wineglass, and there is no room for small plates; it is only good for small to medium glasses and cups. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Plus I had to get a service person to get water to flow through the machine before I could use it.

I bought this in July and just love this dishwasher. So much better than my last dishwasher. It gets my dishes spotless.
Not happy with this dishwasher.
from Brownsburg, IN, United States
We have had this for several months now and we are not happy with this dishwasher. I wish I had went ahead and bought some new racks for my old whirlpool we still have it and are still thinking of doing that because we like it better.

Works great and glad we bought it wish I had bought it first time
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.
