I have had this machine for almost a year now. It replaced an apartment size portable. So far I have been very pleased. This is a no-frills machine. It has your basic cycles, and not much else. That was exactly what I was looking for; something I did not have to fuss with. I scrape my dishes, turn the dial to Normal or Heavy, and that's about it. No need for anything fancier for typical use. The dishes always come out clean with good detergent, rinse agent, and reasonable scraping with a rubber spatula. No pre-rinsing is really necessary except for really nasty dishes. The only (minor# caveats I have about the machine are pretty much typical in a dishwasher in this price range. Since there is no spray arm above the upper rack, it is important to not overcrowd items up there. Water need to be able to spray from the wash tower below. If it is too crowded, you may find the occasional bit of food hanging out on the outside of your dishes. It's not a serious problem, but worth noting. Proper loading circumvents it. The final quibble I have is the lack of vertical space in the upper rack. The rack is not adjustable #lower end machine), and tall glasses may not fit. Most notably, my plastic iced tea tumblers were too tall. Not a big deal for me, but may be for some other users. Overall, I love my basic model GE Dishwasher. It gives me consistently clean dishes with a minimum of fuss, holds a large load, and has been very reliable. How much more can you ask for from a basic appliance?

I had a previous similar model GE portable dishwasher. The main changes in this one are in the rack design - and almost all are for the worse. Lower rack prongs hold dinner plates unevenly and are too far apart to hold smaller plates. Center of lower rack has no prongs, which makes it useless for plates. Upper rack small prongs in front of rack alternate short and tall, which makes it impossible to place several small dishes in a row - has to be done with empty slots in between. Only real improvement: one side of upper rack (above silver basket) holds taller glasses without spray arm bumping into them. Hose which attaches to sink should retract completely into the back of the unit so it can be stored flush against a wall, but it doesn't - hose sticks out several inches. Unfortunately, my kitchen has no room for a built-in dishwasher, so choices are very limited.

Works great and does what it's supposed to do

Comments about GE 24" Black 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.
