EdgeStar DWP61ES Countertop Dishwasher Review$389.00
The Edgestar DWP61ES has five full wash cycles, in addition to a ten minute rinse. We recommend running that before storing the dishwasher, since it cleans off the filter and clears out the hoses. Otherwise, the unit might end up smelling funny with food residue left behind.
There are two options on this washer. You can delay a wash up to 24 hours, and you can customize a wash to work with all-in-one wash tablets by pressing the "3 IN 1" button before a normal, heavy duty or quick wash.
Additional Wash Options
There aren't any other ways of customizing washes on this unit.
Its manual said the Edgestar DWP61ES could fit six place settings, but we found that poorly-placed tines and fixed rack space limited us to four settings. This isn't a particularly tall machine, so your capacity will fall even more if you're trying to wash a large item, since you must lie it down flat.
Pictured is the interior of the Sunpentown SD-2201W. It is identical to the EdgeStar.
Wash Arms & Filters
There's a single wash arm at the bottom of the machine. There's also a removable screen and filter, both of which we recommend cleaning after each wash. In all our tests, the filter ended up totally clogged.
