I love this machine! I was a little worried at first that it does'nt have a pots and pan button, but I used a glass bread pan that I like making lasana in, I over filled it and it went over and got burned on stuff to the bottem of the pan (luckly i had it on top of a cookie sheet with foil). I just rinsed it enough to get off any pieces of noodles off and just threw it in the top rack and used the cascade complete packs that the manual recommended, normal wash cyle with added heat and steam and it came out spotless even the bottem of the pan! All my dishes and glasses also come out cleaner and more shiney then my old machine and the water does'nt seem to splash out of the sink when draining which was a little problem with my old machine. I can fit my 2 15-11 inch cookie sheets in the bottem rack and there still is like an inch or so from the middle spray arm. It's pretty quite too! I love this machine so far! I've only had it for a week and I run it 1-2 times a day. The only thing I don't like is the door latch on the roof of the inside of the machine is metal with a plastic tip looks like it will be the first thing to break. Also I think it needs another light to tell you its drying because of the pauses between cycle, also if you have a nice set of flatware drying heat or not you want ot pull that out of the dishwasher as soon as its done to prevent long term damage, once agian a light will make this more helpful.

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.

Heating element stopped working after 14 months
Comments about GE 24" White Portable Dishwasher:
We run the dishwasher once, maybe twice a week at the most. After owning a GE portable for 10 years without a single problem, naturally we decided to go with another GE portable when the racks on our old portable become worn out and rusty after ten years of use. So rather then buy new racks at substantial cost and then possibly have the old washer stop working, we decided to go with a brand new washer. We picked this model because it had more features, much better dish racks, and was supposed to be quieter then our old one. When we got this washer home it didn't make as much noise as our old one. But after a year of minimal use it's just as noisy as our old model. It's been 14 months since our purchase and the dryer element has stopped working two months after the warranty expired. This is very disappointing considering how little this machine has been used. Overall, we're very disappointed in the wash job it does, the time it takes to complete a load, and it's noise level. We could not recommend this washer simply because it already needs repaired when our older, less expensive GE portable lasted well over 10 years without a single problem.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this dishwasher over a year ago and I am surprised the machine is as quite now as it was a year ago. I did not expect that paying little bit extra has done a lot for the noise level.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Doesn't clean, doesn't dry, ruins stainless steel
from San Francisco, CA
Doesn't get anything clean. Must load it very sparsely to clean at all. I open before drying and dump excess water from things that have overturned, bottom of mugs etc but it still doesn't get things dry and at end of drying, there is still water on the door and in the bottom of machine. It ruins my stainless steel, which I've had for 8 years and looked brand new before this machine. Don't load anything near the detergent dispenser because it will be ruined. Washing once on the top rack took the color out of a plastic bowl I've used and washed for 15 years with no problem.
from Mentor, Ohio
I no longer have to pre-rinse dishes. Love the accessory for stemmed glassware. I have to use a portable and this is so very easy to move for a 72 yr. old woman. My family loves the fact that it is convertible.
Not much of a fan
from Windsor, ON, Canada
I purchased this product based on some good reviews I read on here and the price was right. I have only had it 3 weeks and am not overly impressed. It doesn't particularly clean well and it left a huge mess of soapy water on my kitchen floor.
Portable Dishwasher can also be installed
This has been the best product to use and I would not change a thing
I got the dishwasher in Dec and 8 months later it didn't work anymore. Two months later and I'm waiting on the technician to come back a third time to fix it. I previously had a different brand that I used for 10 years before it had a problem and this one didn't make it a year. The quality just isn't there and the customer service isn't either since I've been trying to get it fixed for about two months now. Avoid this dishwasher and look elsewhere.

This dishwasher finishes in an hour - wonderful!
from Pomfret, VT, USA
I like almost everything about this dishwasher but it is very hard to connect and the hardest dishwasher to load I have EVER had. I find myself washing many dishes by hand after lunch because I know I am going to have trouble loading the dinner dishes into the dishwasher.
Pretty good considering...
from Pgh, Pa USA
Looks nice. Fairly quiet. Had to have the plastic detergent dispenser replaced within months of purchase because the plastic closure snapped off. Occasionally doesn't get all dishes clean. Seems to take a long time to run a normal wash cycle. Smaller bowls don't seem to fit or stack well in the bottom rack. Not a wide selection for portable dishwashers. Overall, it does a pretty good job.
