SPT SD-9241SS Energy Star Portable Dishwasher Review

Washing the dishes may just seem to be a simple job. However, when it becomes a hassle because you can’t attend to them anymore, you certainly need a hand.

If you are living with someone this is not a big problem. But what if you are living alone? Who does the job of washing the plates and other tableware used? It’s

just you. Well, you have two options – either you hand-wash your china or you purchase a dishwasher to do all the work for you. Then you can just sit back and relax until your dishes become squeaky clean.

Sounds perfect, right? And it is even better with the 18-inch Stainless Steel SPT Energy Star Portable Dishwasher!

  • Time Delay Feature: 1-24 hours
  • 6 Wash Programs: All-in-1, Light, Normal, Heavy, Rinse and Speed
  • Adjustable upper rack to accommodate larger plates/pots
  • Stainless Steel Interior
  • Faucet adapter included for fast and easy connection


The 18-inch Stainless Steel SPT Energy Star Portable Dishwasher can be said to be one of the wisest purchases you can ever make. It is a must-have for those living in their apartments to become an added help in the house.

It uses very little water so you can be sure that your water bill will not be affected by it, plus it does not require pre-rinse to your plates. Just the kind of assistance you need to keep your place clean despite your busy life, right?

It is very well made too, having a stainless steel tub that connects easily through its faucet adapter. An added feature you will also like is that it is on casters so it can just roll away when not in use.

The countertop is great as well for storing your rinse aid and dish gel. Overall, this product is sturdy enough to last long in helping you in the kitchen!

Other advantages include the great design of the discharge pump as it does not have to fight gravity in climbing up the sink. You can also use your sink at the same time that the dishwasher is running.

It does not eat up space too so it is convenient and easy to store just anywhere. Most importantly, it really does its job as a dishwasher; the dishes do not just come out okay once the cycle is finished, but it is really super clean that has impressed greatly a lot of its buyers.

Not to forget, it is quiet once it starts washing the dishes, so it does not distract you from loud noises that some dishwashers produce. The space inside is quite big too for daily dishes used by three or more people.

It does not contain any smell or bad odor either as it finishes the cycles. And, though it is an electrical appliance, it has not been proven to exceed the normal electricity usage so it should be fine to use day and night.


There have been complaints that the product started leaking just after six months of use, even if it was only once a week.

The price and quality seemed “too good to be true” plus the customer support service was not that friendly as the customer needs to pay for a shipping fee just to be able to return it to the manufacturer.

Some had it worse as the product was damaged and did not work right after they received the package. Despite following the directions and connecting the dishwasher to an outlet, the product still failed to function.

According to them, it does not dry the dishes and clean them well plus it takes forever in running just a single cycle.  What is more, it can’t choose wash cycles or time delay.

They found more satisfaction in another dishwasher that has a shorter wash cycle of 45 minutes compared to the two hours of this product.


No single product can claim perfection, but the 18-inch Stainless Steel SPT Energy Star Portable Dishwasher is almost there. Its spacious cavity loads up to eight standard place setting and features easy controls.

It quickly connects to just about any kitchen faucet so it does not need direct plumbing or permanent installation. Just as long as your faucet has a removable aerator, you can connect the faucet adaptor.

Also, it may not dry the dishes but opening the door all the way after washing will surely help. It is just a minor thing that the product can’t do on its own so that responsibility lies on you.

Again, it is a very little task compared to what this dishwasher can do for you. It really won’t hurt that much, right?

In addition, SPT has other kinds of dishwashers including the White SPT Countertop Dishwasher and Silver SPT Countertop Dishwasher, which, although may have a thousand more reviews than this product, but this one is still very much efficient and worth purchasing.

Surely, this dishwasher aims to please and serve you by producing spotless dishes!
