If you don’t have the budget or room for a full-size dishwasher but would rather not spend time scrubbing dirty dishes after a dinner party, consider a countertop dishwasher. While they may be small, they can pack a punch when it comes to tackling residue from your favorite foods. All it takes is a bit of counter space and access to your kitchen sink. A countertop dishwasher will not only save you time but also cut down on the amount of water you use to get your dishes clean. You will be able to enjoy the company of your mealtime companions without worrying about getting the dishes done.

Quieter than your upstairs neighbor. Amazon
The Danby has many of the same features we really liked in the B+D and hOmeLabs dishwashers: six wash settings, easy installation, and a compact design. This model is also perfect for running your dishes while you head to bed or put on a show. It’s super quiet, running at 52db, meaning you won’t have to consistently reach for the volume button on your remote or put your earplugs in to get some shut-eye. It has an automatic detergent dispenser and four delayed start options to fit perfectly with your schedule. It measures 19.7 x 21.6 x 17.2 inches and weighs 46.3 pounds.

If you are down to spend an extra penny on your countertop dishwasher, the Farberware is beautiful and extra compact, at 17.3 x 16.5 x 17.3 inches. It can fit dishes up to 12 inches in diameter (at an angle), too. This dishwasher does not need to be hooked up to a faucet; it has a built-in, 5-liter water tank, which means you can keep it pretty much anywhere. This dishwasher also comes with some unique wash settings including Fruit Wash and Baby Care. You can stick with your favorite detergent because this little fellow can accept pods, powder, and liquids. This dishwasher might be a great go-to for your apartment, RV, boat, or cabin.
