Special Features

This 18-inch dishwasher also features a built-in water softener system. It goes without saying how important this is for people living in places where the tap water is hard. So forget about white stains on your dishes after washing. A rinse agent dispenser is included and a host of electronic controls, making it possible to operate the otherwise sophisticated machine with ease.

Danby made sure this dishwashers is user friendly. The control panel is pretty simple. Its exterior and interior designs correspond to the latest trends, so it stands out thanks to its stainless steel look and a sleek finish.

It has 8 place setting capacity and is very energy efficient, so it is a very good unit for a family of 4 to 6 members. Its interior is spacious enough to accommodate bigger size or odd shaped flatware.Danby DDaW1899BLS review

Customer Reviews

  • “I am pleased with the DDW1899BLS. I and my husband don’t really care much for a high-end unit, so features like a stainless stub and 8 place setting are enough for us. I also find the stainless steel finish quite attractive and easy to keep clean with a damp cloth.” – Spencer, Massachusetts
  • “I bought this dishwasher a year ago and have used it everyday, since. I did not own a dishwasher prior, but this is a dream come true in terms of eliminating frustrating kitchen chores. I give it 5 stars not because it is the best dishwasher, but because it has met and exceeded my expectations.” – Joe, New York

Verdict

This Danby 18 inch dishwasher is not that difficult to install and it cleans dishes well. Some say that it performs similar to the more expensive models. On the flip side its cycles take rather long to complete. It’s also worth noted that it’s an energy efficiency unit that was Energy Star certified.

Pros

Cons

  • Makes a soft hum when running – it may be seen as a drawback by people who are looking for a completely quiet model.
