What are countertop dishwashers?
A countertop dishwasher has a size twice than that of your microwave oven and fits right to your countertop – hence the name – table or near your kitchen sink. Two tubes from the machine’s rear panel can be connected to your sink faucet. The first is an inlet valve which gives clean water from the faucet to the dishwasher and the second makes for an exhaust valve which gets dirty water from the dishwasher and empties it directly into the sink.
This countertop dishwasher does not in any way require permanent installation. The only thing to do is place the dishwasher on a countertop, make a fixture and allow the countertop to be screwed. This type portable dishwasher saves a lot of water compared to your normal dishwashing agony.
