Best Countertop Dishwasher
To be honest, I don’t trust countertop dishwashers. They seem to have more angry/disappointed owners than most standard size dishwashers do. But if you still need the smallest dishwasher available, you need a countertop dishwasher and I suggest the Edgestar Portable Countertop Dishwasher with digital controls.
With so many dishwashers available in the market, buying the best dishwashers in India 2020 is a frustrating task.
I recently helped my niece look for a countertop and we debated a long time whether to get this one or the Danby countertop, because I had a Danby portable dishwasher which worked well. In the end we decided to give this a try because it had a lot more reviews (both good and bad ones) compared to Danby.
Installation is Fairly Simple with a Few Tricks
Always measure your countertop space first before you buy a countertop dishwasher because it really isn’t as small as it looks in the photos! The Edgestar Portable Countertop Dishwasher is hooked up next to the sink just like any other dishwashers.
When it comes out of the box, you’ll find that some or all of the connections are already attached, but when you hook it up, you MUST tighten all the connections. This piece of advice is given by not one but several users, and I’ve read quite a few bad reviews which complained of leakage. I assume that there is a close connection (no pun intended!) between the two but I can’t be sure.
Good Make, Energy Star Rating
It has a stainless steel tub and spray arm, and the dish rack holds 4 place settings. There were people complaining that the rack won’t hold their dishes, so my niece and I brought her dishes to the store and tried it out. They fitted. Pots and pans are more difficult but you can still fit one or two of those if you take out everything else.
My niece is all excited over the energy star rating because saving costs is what a college student would be mostly concerned about. She’s really happy with the purchase; now she can cook everyday and not wash a single dish by hand!
I recommend this Edgestar Portable Countertop Dishwasher to anyone who:
1. cannot fit a built-in, standard size portable or even a slimline dishwasher in their kitchen;
2. has countertop space next to the sink to place this (measure first!); and
3. doesn’t have too many dishes to wash (only 4 place settings, unless you want to do two cycles).
Best Budget Dishwasher – Whirlpool DU850SWPQ Dishwasher
Dishwashers can be a luxury for some, but there are still options for those with a tight budget. This full size Whirlpool DU850SWPQ Dishwasher costs only half the price of the usual mid-end full size dishwashers, but does the job.

Basic Dishwasher at A Very Affordable Price
It will wash your dishes, simple as that, no frills. It does not have hard food disposer, sensors, or a lot of sophisticated programs. The Whirlpool DU850SWPQ Dishwasher is very simple to use, with 4 automatic cycles and knob control.
There is only one spray arm but it does get the plates clean if you use the right detergent. What it does have is the Pots and Pans cycle, and being a full size dishwasher it can handle several of those at a time. It has a high temperature boost you can use to sanitize the dishes, and delay start option.
Great for Big Families
The Whirlpool DU850SWPQ Dishwasher washes 10 place settings in one full load, which is great value for money! The price is about the same as a countertop dishwasher which can wash 4 to 6 place settings per load. Plus it has Energy Star qualified rating to save energy costs.
Not Quiet Though
Of course, you get what you pay for. Don’t expect this dishwasher to be whisper quiet like the Bosch SHX98M09UC or even the Danby Portable Dishwasher, but it does not cause a racket that is too unbearable during the day. Just don’t run it at bedtime, I’d say.
The Whirlpool DU850SWPQ Dishwasher is a really good option for those who want to cut down the chores and save water/energy costs yet cannot afford the more expensive models with fancy add-ons. For about $280 you get a basic full size dishwasher, still a lot better than handwashing the plates, eh?
Best Value Dishwasher – Whirlpool GU2475XTVY Fully Integrated Dishwasher
If you’re looking for a built-in or fully integrated dishwasher below $1000, I would recommend this Whirlpool GU2475XTVY Fully Integrated Dishwasher as a first choice. For one thing, it has positive reviews and so far I haven’t seen anyone give it less than four stars rating. It’s not a high end dishwasher nor is it top of the line, but for slightly more than $600 this is absolutely a value buy!
I bought this for my mother when her ancient dishwasher finally broke down. The Whirlpool GU2475XTVY Fully Integrated Dishwasher is a standard size (24-inch) dishwasher, stainless steel on the outside and plastic on the inside. The controls are hidden in the interior door panel so you only see a sleek stainless steel surface that looks great.
There are 36 jets and no tower, good enough to get all the dishes clean in one cycle without soaking or scrubbing first. There are as many as 6 cycles to choose from, but I don’t think anyone will really use all of them. My mum says her pots and pans get cleaned very well, and I have to agree. I have never seen my mum’s pots so clean. It’s the pot-scrubber feature with this dishwasher. Many others complimented it as well, so I guess if you have a lot of pots and pans to clean, this is really cool.
Not Super Quiet, but Can Do
Since this Whirlpool GU2475XTVY Fully Integrated Dishwasher has a plastic tub it wasn’t as quiet as other high end built-ins, like my Bosch, which is perfectly quiet. It’s quiet enough if you don’t normally spend your time watching tv next to your kitchen, or if your kitchen is far enough from your living space.
For a fully integrated dishwasher below $1000, I think the Whirlpool GU2475XTVY performs really well. Grade it? Exceeds my expectations. Unless you want to spend more and get a whisper quiet high end model, this is the best value choice. Click here now to see this dishwasher and read more reviews about it.
