SD-2201W better known simply as the SPT Countertop Dishwasher (White signifies the color) is one of the most popular machines on the market. Also available in Silver, the hardest choice you’re going to make, is deciding on which color you want to purchase.
A dishwasher is no longer just a luxury appliance for kitchens in large homes. Nowadays, almost any kitchen of any size can have its very own dishwasher. Portable dishwashers are now available and they are the ideal models for apartments and other living establishments where the kitchen space is limited. Portable dishwashers generally feature wheels so you can move them around and place them in storage when not needed. Not only are portable dishwashers more affordable but they are also more efficient when it comes to space.
A countertop dishwasher falls under portable dishwashers except that it lacks wheels and is designed instead to sit on top of a counter. In this article, you will learn all about the features, benefits and drawbacks of the SPT Countertop Dishwasher.
Below are some of the features that you can expect with the SPT Countertop Dishwasher.
- Convenient Size. The STP Countertop Dishwasher is approximately 17 inches in height, making it an ideal choice for those who are looking for a compact dishwasher that can fit amidst other appliances in your kitchen counter.
- Stainless Steel Interior. The dishwasher’s interior is also made from high-grade stainless steel to ensure that your dishwasher is not exposed to any staining or rusts.
- 6 Wash Cycles. The STP Countertop Dishwasher also boasts 6 wash cycles in order to suit any dishwashing needs. Light and Normal wash cycles are the most ideal for everyday dishwashing needs. Plates, bowls, pans and glasses that have been used to prepare or eat meals typically fall under Light and Normal cycles. The Heavy wash cycle is ideal for heavily soiled pots, plates and pans. The three other wash cycles are Glass, Soak and Speed.
- Detergent and Rinse Aid Dispenser. The STP Countertop Dishwasher is also equipped with automatic dispensers for detergent and rinse aid. The detergent must be added before you start the dishwasher. The dishwasher is also designed to work with rinse aid that can improve or quicken drying.

SPT Countertop Dishwasher Pros and Cons
One of the biggest benefits that customers have experienced with the STP Countertop Dishwasher is the fact that it is capable of washing so many dishes inside such a small and compact machine. The dishwasher is in fact low enough that it can fit below any cupboard with ease. Most customers also find the six wash cycles extremely versatile and helpful. The sleek white or silver finish also makes the dishwasher a great pick for any modern kitchen. Of course, the affordable price is also a big plus for consumers.
The STP Countertop Dishwasher also comes with a couple of drawbacks. For one thing, some customers have complained about the machines manual which doesn’t offer complete and comprehensive information about how to operate the dishwasher. Some customers have also complained about leaks due to the lack of retractable hoses. Plates, pans and other cutlery that are on the large size will also have difficulty fitting inside the dishwasher. Apparently, the rack is best for small to medium-sized plates, bowls and platters.
