Rated 4 out of 5Â by AngelaM Good machine
Works well, cleans the dishes. I have large plates so it doesn't hold more than 4 place settings, including saucers, bowls, glasses and cups. For a single person or couple, it's a great machine, and fits well in small spaces/kitchens. It's quiet, washes well.
The only reason for 4 stars is because it doesn't seem to dry well. I wash in the evening and usually unload the next evening after work, and they are still wet. It's my first machine though, so that might be normal, but I saw other complaints about that. All in all, it's minor and not a big deal.
It is small though, and won't handle pots, pans, mixing bowls etc, but I'm used to washing those by hand anyway, and probably wouldn't put them in a full size machine to begin with.
There's very limited selection for 18 inch machines, and I was told by my appliance repair guy that they are all basically "this machine, built by the same company, and re-branded by others", so I bought the least expensive, this one, and I'm happy with the purchase.

I purchased this unit for the kitchenette in my office.
It was simple to install and delivered right to my door.
Great for small loads of coffee cups and staff dishes.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jobot Great little dishwasher!
I was a little reluctant to buy Danby, because I had never heard of it. Well, first of all it's made in Canada, a hint of good things to come. Here's what you need to know:
Pros: Dishes come out clean, nice design, good quality.
Cons: Front panel should be better reinforced.
Some may complain about long cycles, but those are needed to get energy star approval. Also, check the dimensions, this is an ultra compact model, so if you have standard lower kitchen cabinets, you'll lose a couple inches of potential dishwashing space in back and at the bottom. If money is not an issue, then get the GE Profile. Don't let the dimensions deter you, it's common in 18 inch dishwashers so that they fit a wider variety of spaces.
Bottom line: Great dishwasher, don't be deterred by a new name and a low price. Oh, it also has an 18 month warranty (not standard 12).

Rated 4 out of 5Â by nh2581 Overall great
Overall we really like the dishwasher and I was a little nervous after reading some of the other reviews and not being able to see it prior to ordering it online. We have only had the dishwasher installed for a few weeks but it works great. We have a family of 3 and fit quite a bit in the machine.
Only reason for not 5 stars are pretty minimal: I wish the buttons explained what cycle they were rather than just a picture (the pictures dont make sense, and I always forget), and the silverware rack is a little cheap. I had been worried that the front would be really cheap based on other reviews, but I am actually okay with it.
