Has anyone tried or have a counter top dish washer. I saw one advertised for 99 bucks. Says it does a place setting for 4, washes, rinses and drys the dishes, just wondered if it is worth a try.

Terry,
Aw come on, your two hands are free. It takes me less than 10 minutes to clean up after dinner.

I know it is not a difficult task, but of all the stuff we had in our stick house the only thing I really miss is the dish washer,, LOL

I don't want to give up my counter space, don't have the room. Besides, you would have to rinse/scrape before dish washer anyway, may as well wash em! We don't have enough dirty dishes to call for a dishwasher anyway, the pots and pans wouldn't go in there and would have to be hand washed anyhow. I have one of those little "tubes with sponge at end", dish soap goes in the tube. Great for quick clean-ups(lunch dishes, glasses).

Thanks for the replies, I read up on the thing and it is only water powered, not electric so wouldn't be worth a toot in a lot of parks where there is very low water pressure, that and all the reasons Ed and Cheryl listed. Thanks again for taking time to answer.

Compact Appliance has one and you can view the Installaion Manual (PDF) online to see it it would work for you. They also have the Fisher & Paykel Dishdrawers (uses about 5 gl water per load and you may be able to fit a single dishdrawer under your sink cabinet... I want a Fisher & Paykel DD ) as well as the 18" apartment size dishwashers (personally I think they would be better than the countertop variety). BTW, ANYONE who wants to wash my dishes is welcome to!!! I dispise washing dishes. But then, why buy a big RV when you can camp in a tent??? Think of how much money you could save!

If you do decide to get a dishwasher, make sure that it can run on the water/electric system you have or you need to be prepared to upgrade your systems to handle it (available hot water -a tankless unit may be needed-, upgraded water pressure & must run on 120VAC).
