When I first found out about counter top dishwashers, I didn’t realize all of the people that could need a device like this. For most people, a counter top dishwasher wouldn’t be essential. But, after a little while, I thought of all the people whom might need it: busy moms, college students, persons with no built-in dishwasher, small families living in small places, and persons with disabilities etc. Certainly, there are many more situations that would bring about the need for a counter top dishwasher, like a small office kitchen.
The SPT SD-2202S is a stainless steel product. Though, the body exterior is coated in a thin silver plastic, while the interior shows stainless steel. Apparently, the exterior is durable, according to a few owners. At 48 pounds, it is pretty heavy for a small kitchen appliance. The shipping weight, 73 pounds, might be too heavy for you. Perhaps you may need to arrange for assistance in lifting it upon delivery.

Again, the dimensions are 21.65W x 19.69D x 17.24H inches. It’s not too tall to fit on your counter and under your cabinet. But, will it fit on your counter? Depending on the space available on your cabinet and the placement of your fridge, stove, and sink, it may not fit. You should measure before you buy.
Of course, hoses will need to be connected from the dishwasher to your faucet. For you, this might be unsightly. I’m usually a stickler for aesthetics, so this would be a big con for me if it had to stay on the counter connected to the faucet. You can run the hose along the seam of the counter and the wall, or only connect the hose while in use. The hose adapter is easy to attach and detach.
The SPT SD-2202S registers 55 decibels while in use. That isn’t very loud. In fact a normal conversation takes place at about 60 to 70 decibels. So it won’t be like having a washing machine in your kitchen while running a cycle.
A cycle uses about four gallons of water. You can fit about 6 place settings: cups, saucers, plates, forks, spoons, knives. The maximum plate size is 10.5 inches. No, an 11 inch plate just won’t fit. Someone already asked. There is an 8-hour delayed start feature. This is good if you share a living space and need the dish washing cycle to start after your roommate puts in their dishes.
