Trending review: "It’s been life changing, and I’m not exaggerating much. Facing Monday morning without a sink full of dirty dishes has been positively freeing!
I have now done well over 100 loads and it’s as effective, quiet and wonderful as it was for that first load! I had planned to hook up the hose to fill from the faucet, but I still haven’t done that because it’s so easy to just use the pitcher. Four pitcher fills and the beep tells me it’s ready to go.
I’ve used various detergent pods but I do find that the recommended Finish Quantum pods do the best job.
I’ve never had any residue problems at all. There appear to be two rinse cycles on the normal cycle, and everything is sparkling!
I have used Finish machine cleaning pods and they have kept the interior itself clean and buildup free. It’s also very easy to remove and clean the catch filter, which I do periodically. This is a sturdy, heavy machine and I think it will continue to hold up well. I also feel good about the fact that I’m using far less water." - Todd
Highlight: It's an actual appliance, not a cheap novelty! Very cool.
Helpful Review: "I've been on the fence about buying one of these for a while, so now that I've pulled the trigger here are my observations.
My first note is not about the product, but about delivery times. My package sat in the warehouse for three days after placing my order and arrived 2 days late.
However, it did arrive in great shape. The box was constructed from thick and sturdy cardboard, which was well sealed and strapped. The product was secure inside a nest of dense styrofoam.
Upon removing the washer from its box, I was immediately impressed with the build quality. Images I saw this thing online made it look like a toy. But in person, it’s plainly evident that this is a serious appliance.
Setup was a breeze. After removing a few bits of foam used to stabilize the rack during shipping, it was only a matter of attaching a hose and plugging it in. Measure your space carefully. I was initially going to purchase a more well-known brand, but it was just a tiny bit too big. This unit was the perfect fit.
I'm not planning on plumbing this dishwasher, so I have to note that the supplied pitcher is much smaller than the reservoir tank, so it took 4 of them to fill the unit. Use the supplied plastic fill funnel - it lets you empty a whole pitcher at once, which is MUCH faster than carefully pouring water from the pitcher to the fill hole!
There is one design flaw for anyone placing this under a counter like me. The dishwasher will need to be pulled forward to access the fill-hole, but the unit’s rubber feet make that very difficult. I replaced them with a set of glides, making the task pretty effortless.I found the unit to be deceptively spacious inside. I just happened to have a mess of dishes in my sink when this was delivered, unrinsed and at least a day old. The whole lot of them fit in the washer easily, with room to spare.
The dishwasher springs to life with the push of a button. I think the “Normal” cycle runs a bit long, at 2 hours and 10 minutes. There are quicker settings, so I’ll try those next time. The clear door is a nice feature, and seeing it work made me more confident in the washer’s performance. This thing runs like a champ, just like a full-size dishwasher. Only smaller. Once the cycle was complete the dishes were spotless. I couldn’t ask for more." - Andrea
