If you do not have an allotted space for a dishwasher in your home, you are not condemned to an eternity of hand-washing your dishes. Instead, consider using a tabletop dishwasher. These dishwashers sit conveniently on your worktop or a nearby table and wash your dishes using water from your kitchen tap. They are portable, and can be packed away when not in use. All you need is a nearby electrical socket and a kitchen tap to utilise this appliance.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place your dishwasher as close to the kitchen sink as possible. Ideally, locate it on the worktop or nearby tabletop.

  2. 2

    Unscrew the tap aerator from your kitchen tap with channellock pliers. Screw on the sink adaptor that came with your tabletop dishwasher kit.

  3. 3

    Uncoil the dishwasher drain hose and run it to the sink. Orient the outlet so that the water drains into the sink and does not run elsewhere.

  4. 4

    Plug the dishwasher into an electric socket nearest the sink. The circuit should be rated for at least 15 amps.
