The SPT SD-9241SS Portable Dishwasher is a good kitchen appliance that will save you the frustration of needing to move a dishwasher around the kitchen, connecting it, running a hose to your sink, loading, and unloading it. This dishwasher can be installed right alongside your sink, so that you don’t need to set it up whenever you have to wash dishes. Plus it functions the same as a built-in model.
SPT SD-9241SS Portable Dishwasher Features
The SPT SD-9241SS Portable Dishwasher weighs 123 lbs. and its dimensions are 17.72” wide by 25.98” deep by 36.02” high. This means it can be situated anywhere in your home eliminating the need for permanent installation. A faucet adapter is supplied with this washer to facilitate quick and easy connection for your water supply and return lines.
A time delay function lets you choose start intervals between one to twenty-four hours. Very convenient if you have other activities planned for your day. Also, you can select 6 different wash programs (All-in-1, Heavy, Normal, Light, Rinse, and Speed) depending on the level dirty dishes you have.
This dishwasher has a sizable enough stainless steel interior that can accommodate a reasonable amount of dishes at once. This is due in part to it having upper and lower dish racks, and cutlery basket. Click here to see more on dish configurations.

Pricing & Purchase
Suppentown International sells this unit for $509, but we found Amazon.com to have the best price for portable dishwashers, including the SPT SD-9241SS Portable Dishwasher.
The SPT SD-9241SS eliminates the necessity for long-term installation or direct plumbing, given that it connects quickly to your kitchen faucet; also it doesn’t leak. The controls are really easy to operate, and the time delay feature lets you program your machine to use any time you like, within a 24-hour period. The error alarm shows fault codes, as well as the Rinse Aid Warning Indicator and refill reminder aid in keeping things running nicely.
There is absolutely no pre-rinse required while using this STP Portable Dishwasher. It utilizes a small amount of water; only 3.65 gallons per normal cycle. Water gets hot up to 154 degrees, so your dishes get bright clean. Another benefit would be the fact it’s on wheels, so you can easily roll it away when it’s not in use.
The dimensions are great for small kitchens; it will fit 2-3 pots comfortably, without contacting the two spray arms while running. It holds a good degree of dishes, and runs quietly. Generally, there’s no unpleasant odor inside; however, if one happens to develop, putting a cup of vinegar in the top rack enables you to dispel the smell.
The SPT SD-9241SS Portable Dishwasher doesn’t dry the dishes that well; instead, you must dry them by hand, or allow them to air dry. Washing a load of dishes tends to take a long time; almost 2 hours to complete the cycle based on our observations.
If you have a spray attachment on your faucet, you might need to remove it first before running the dishwasher. Additionally, the hoses are just three feet long, and are installed in the back of the machine. You may have to face the back of the washer towards the sink in order to run a cycle. This makes loading challenging (we highly recommend replacing with longer hosing).
It would be careless of us if we didn’t suggest one or more portable dishwasher with a stainless finish to fit more modern kitchens. With virtually the identical features with the SPT SD-9241SS the Danby DDW1801MWP is a viable alternative.
