hOmeLabs Compact Countertop Dishwasher is a great alternative to kitchens without a regular dishwasher. Instead of spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars on new plumbing and cabinetry work, hOmeLabs portable dishwasher allows you to keep the sanctity of your kitchen and gifts you the conveniences of modern day dishwashers. Initial reviews for this portable dishwasher were very pleased. hOmelabs created a compact cleaning appliance that could fit easily on any counter-top and just as easily tucks away for storage. Reviewers were surprised at how many dishes they could fit in this tiny dishwasher. While some extra large plates were too tall for the trays, (one reviewer noted a plate 11" in diameter), reviewers were able to squeeze some pots and pans. The overall performance, which has always been an issue for dishwashers, was also satisfactory. Most reviewers made a special note that they only had to run the hOmeLabs portable dishwasher once.
Initial impressions seemed to quickly fade after a few months. Everything seemed to work fine at first, but then various reviewers noted the portable dishwasher began leaking. Others thought the water temperature did not heat up as hot as it could have.
It is possible there has been some user error with the leaking issues. hOmeLabs portable dishwasher is not compatible with all sinks. However, hOmeLabs includes a faucet adapter, and from the reviews, there was some struggle in attaching and detaching the adapter. Whatever the case, it certainly will be a cheaper option than installing a full sized dishwasher in your kitchen.
