If you don’t have room for a conventional, built-in dishwasher, you may have looked at some of the countertop models available, like the Magic Chef. It is a great compact counter dishwasher that uses your sink for its water supply. It is easy to use and does a great job. Take a look a the rest of the Magic Chef Mcscd6W1 countertop dishwasher review to see what I mean.
Small and Compact Dishwasher
One of the main reasons you want a countertop dishwasher is space. The Magic Chef is nice and compact at 24.8 x 26.7 x 24.2 inches and weighing 49.6 pounds. A small machine like this one is perfect for apartments that don’t have a built-in dishwasher. It doesn’t take up too much precious space and you can take it with you when you leave. It’s also great for other situations where you don’t need or want a full-size machine like in an RV. This size machine is perfect to take with you on the road.
Easy to Use
Operating the Magic Chef is quick and easy. There are inlet and outlet hoses that work off of your kitchen sink. Simple screw the inlet hose to your faucet and you’re ready to go. If you don’t have counter space right next to your sink, the inlet hose is 70″ and the outlet hose is 47. You can also get longer hose if you need it or get parts to adapt it for permanent installation if you like. Another option is to put the dishwasher on a cart and just wheel it out of the closet and hook it up to your sink when you want to use it.
There is room for 6 place settings in this compact dishwasher. The dish rack is removable, which is useful when you want to put something big in the machine. There are 5 washing programs preset in the machine, including a quick rinse cycle. This cycle doesn’t use soap and is great for when you just want to spray something off with hot water or to sterilize.
The Magic Chef countertop dishwasher only uses about 4 gallons of water per cycle. That’s a lot less water than if you washed the same amount of dishes by hand. RV users will appreciate that feature since they usually have to carry their own water on board. Using such a small amount of water is a bonus if you live in areas plagued by drought and want to keep water use to a minimum where you can. There is also a built-in Flowmeter water sensor to keep track of the amount of water you use and what’s in the machine.
The push button electric controls are easy to see and use. There are indicator lights for on, off, and error. Simple and straightforward. Other reviewers have commented that the Magic Chef Dishwasher cleans just as well as a full size machine. Other comments have been made about how quiet it is when it is running.
All in all the Magic Chef Mcscd6W1 countertop dishwasher is great because of how easy it is to use, compact size, and powerful cleaning.
