Koldfront Countertop Dishwasher Review
Is your kitchen short on space? Then simple machine, designed to help you ease the burden of doing your dishes in less time will give you good results over and over again. There are many factors to consider when purchasing a Dishwasher.
Will it Fit Your existing decor?
Depending on the theme of color going in your kitchen you may find this portable dishwasher complementary for your decor. This simple countertop Dishwasher comes in black and white colors to match most kitchen decor theme, I wish it also came in stainless steel but no it doesn’t. So if you have stainless steel theme going in your home and love this brand then either black or white would work however the white version will work better to give you a cleaner look. Of course what that means is that you will need to get used to wiping the washer each time you use it to minimize the number of times you will need to do thorough cleaning. From the number of reviews on Amazon, we can tell that most people prefer the black to the while and of course you will pay $20 more for the black than white.
Fits on top of your kitchen counter
This baby is just slightly taller than an average microwave oven (just about 3 inches taller). It will fit on the small space beside your sink on conveniently under your sink. For the kind of result you get with this small appliance, you can even toss your dish rack and replace it with this only that you get more than a dish rack can ever offer you. So you simple scrape food particles and load dishes in your portable dishwasher and when the cycle is done you simply store your dishes away on the shelves.
No Need for permanent Installation
With this Portable dishwasher, you don’t need to call a plumber to do a permanent installation for you, you do it yourself. Renters will love this a lot more because you don’t need to worry about changing the plumbing systems in your apartment. You only connect this dishwasher to your kitchen faucet and boom you and in business with your new kitchen maid.

What are people Saying?
Here what a user had to say about the Koldfront Countertop Dishwasher:
- Fits well on a counter top and is stable due to its weight.
- Dishes come out really clean
- Top of it can serve as a spot for an organizational bin or recycle bin.
- There is a de-pressurizer on the hose which lets out water gradually and reduces the splash of water to the sink when the faucet it unhooked
- You can let water into the sink when you are running the dishwasher without unhooking everything if you need to quickly rinse something.
- The top easily tilt open so dishes can dry out completely
- The size of this countertop dishwasher is 1/3 the size of the full size dishwasher.
- The rack rolls out easily unto the door and functions just like a normal full size dishwasher.
- This unit is small so you may find it easier to load smaller size dishes than larger ones in order to close until easily.
- The manual recommends you load utensils upside down.
- the unit beeps when the cycle is done and keeps beeping about every 5 minutes and so can be annoying on a lazy day.
- Depending on where you want to install, you may find the hose a bit longer, especially if you would love to install next to your sink and faucet.
A few people have given this unit poor ratings due to the fact that it did not meet their large use demand. So I personally advice not to over load this unit. Best use for small and portable appliances is to not approach it as a heavy duty machine, you may over work it.
Also someone complained of hearing large sounds from the until after a few use. Possibly some small piece of utensils may have found its way down the machine. Avoid putting too little pieces loosely. Use the cutlery basket for your cutleries to avoid them flying around during a wash cycle.
Also make sure the rotating level on the bottom of the tray moves freely after loading the dishwasher. This way you ensure that none of your dishes will stand it its way when its starts a wash cycle.
