Countertop dishwashers have improved a lot over the years. They’re still compact and easy to hook up, but these days they’re quieter and more powerful than ever. If you’re in the market for a small dishwasher, you’ll want to take a look at this review of the SPT countertop dishwasher model review, see how it stacks up against the competition. This model is available in 2 colors.
Model SD-2202S – Silver
Model SD-2202W – White
Small, portable dishwashers are nothing new. They’ve been around almost as long as built in dishwashers. Until recently though, they haven’t been made to permanently be on the counter and fit in with your kitchen. They’ve been loud, messy machines that were put away when not in use. That didn’t make them very user friendly at all.
This is a great small dishwasher by SPT that will fit between your counter and cupboards. At 21.6 x 19.7 x 17.2 inches it has a lot of power for such a small footprint. Compact countertop dishwashers like the SPT SD-2202 are great for apartments, small kitchens, RVs. Anywhere you don’t have room for a full-size dishwasher or don’t want to have a built in.
Another advantage of a countertop dishwasher is that it is easier to load and unload at counter height. If you have back or other mobility issues, this can make a huge difference in being able to use it comfortably.
This dishwasher has room for 6 place settings and is perfect for a couple or small family. It will take dishes up to 10-1/2 inches. There is one main rack with a glass rack above as well as silverware basket that lifts out.
There are 6 wash cycles to choose from; light, glass, heavy, normal, speed, and soak. The glass setting is perfect if you just want to wash only glasses and put in a spot remover. Speed is perfect for a fast rinse cycle. The soak cycle will pre-soak the dishes that you forgot to load in the dishwasher last night so they will come clean. The machine has what is called residual drying. It doesn’t have a hot dry cycle, instead relies on air drying using the left over heat of the wash cycle. Opening the dishwasher door a crack to let the moisture out helps this work even better.
A really nice feature on this machine is an up to 8-hour delay start. You can load the dishwasher after dinner and set it to start when you want it. This is a great solution for people with a limited water supply or water pressure. The machine can be set to run while you’re sleeping and not using water for anything else like taking a shower or doing laundry. When you can run appliances at off peak times, you can often get a break on the electric rate too.
It has a durable stainless steel interior made to last a long time. The power cord is 48 inches and the hose is 60 inches. The dishwasher hooks up easily to your hot water faucet and drains into the sink. Hook up is quick and easy to do with the faucet adapter, no tools required. The water will heat up to 148 degrees maximum and uses 3.8 gallons a load. This is a lot less than you would use to do the dishes by hand.
