What is the Best EdgeStar Portable Dishwasher to Have in Your Kitchen?

“I know you are looking for a dishwasher or thinking of buying a new one. No doubt, that’s why you are here. A few months back, I had the same question. I wanted to know, what is the best dishwasher there is?”

There were two choices for me. One, go for a permanent dishwasher. Or select a portable dishwasher which is the new trend these days. I live in a small apartment. Saving a spot for a dishwasher in the kitchen is not an option for me. I can’t make changes at my apartment to accommodate a permanent dishwasher.

EdgeStar DWP62BL 6 Place Setting Energy Star Rated Portable Countertop Dishwasher – Black

So the obvious choice for me is a portable dishwasher. Not only that, if I had to move out, it would be a piece of cake for me to take my portable dishwasher with me. Okay, I established that a portable dishwasher is what I need. I started digging on the internet for a reputable portable dishwasher for my kitchen.

And definitely, some product that matches my budget too. Then I came across the EdgeStar DWP62BL Portable Countertop Dishwasher. There are a lot of details about it to share with you guys.

First Impression

First impressions do matter even for a dishwasher. I was amazed by the modern look this dishwasher had. I mean, look at this beautiful black box? With 19.63 x 21.63 x 17.31 dimensions, I honestly didn’t expect a better finish for a dishwasher.

This black color dishwasher has a LED display panel and a sleek set of buttons. Trust me, this dishwasher sitting on your counter, anyone would ask, “what is this alien device?” The look this dishwasher brings into your kitchen can improve your kitchen’s look by ten times.

Other than that, EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher stands by its name portable. Easy to install, takes only a little space in your kitchen counter and 44lbs (20kg) weight says it all. Let’s get into more details about this fine machine.

How Does The Inside Look?

They have made the interior with stainless steel and plastic material. Plastic is just for a few moving blades and the cutlery basket only. I think the manufacturer must have a good reason for that. Anyway, stainless steel finish will make sure your dishwasher will last for a long time.

In addition, you will get a dish rack, cup shelf, and cutlery basket to store all your dinnerware safely for the washing process. I have to say all these accessories had a fine finish.

Spacious Enough for Six of You

Whenever you buy a dishwasher, you have to check how many dishes it can wash in one go. No one wants to do dishwashing twice when there are few members in your family. EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher has a six standard place setting capacity. “What is a standard place setting?”

A place setting contains 1 of each of the following.

  • Dinner plate
  • Dessert plate
  • Glass tumbler
  • Teacup
  • Saucer
  • Knife
  • Fork
  • Spoon
  • Dessert spoon
  • Teaspoon
  • Bowl

I don’t think we will use all of these in a regular family dinner. This dishwasher can hold up to 10.5 inches in diameter plate. EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher has plenty of space for our dishes.

7 Wash Cycles to Select

Not all the dishes you put into your dishwasher are the same. Using the same washing steps will not give you the cleanliness you expect. EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher has a list of seven such wash cycles to select.

  • Heavy
  • Normal
  • Light
  • Glass
  • Babycare
  • Speed
  • Rinse

All the cycle names are self-explanatory.

How to Wash Your Dishes

It’s not a lengthy procedure. You can find all the necessary accessories provided to you with the dishwasher. First, what you have to do is connecting the water inlet line. You have given a quick connect faucet adapter. You have to connect it to the kitchen hot water outlet faucet. The hose is 5 feet long, and that’s plenty.

Then place the drainage hose into your sink drain. Many wonder, “do they use gravity for draining?” No, they don’t, so you can place your dishwasher in a place where lower than the sink drainage.

After setting up everything, stack the dinnerware in the dishwasher. Then select the suitable washer cycle from buttons on the panel and press start.

You can get your dishes all cleaned at the end of the timer.

No Water Spotting on Dishes

Have you seen spots on dishes after they went through the dishwasher? The reason for this is the remaining water on plates that mixed with the rinse agent. With the built-in rinse dispenser and heavy wash cycles, EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher removes all these spots.

Built-in Heater

You know that the best way to get rid of oil stains is hot water. But the hot water inlet from your home would not be enough for this job. Not to worry, EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher has a built-in heater to heat the water.

This heater can increase the water temperature up to 149 degrees Fahrenheit.

Overflow Detector

After you add the detergent and close the door, you can’t see what’s happening inside. In such a case, sometimes the dishwasher can overflow. With this detector, you can stop any harm from happening to your dishwasher.

Low Noise Levels

I hope you can remember the noise that your childhood dishwasher made those days. Now that time has changed, you can not tolerate such noises in the peaceful kitchen. But not to worry, the sound levels of EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher are low as 52.3dB.

Energy Saver

Power Specifications of the EdgeStar Portable Countertop Dishwasher are as follows.
