How to Do Your Dishes Without Getting Your Hands Wet? BLACK+DECKER BCD6W Review

“Dishwashers are not a new thing to a home kitchen. But I think we all remember large home appliances when thinking of them. Dishwashers even needed an exact place in the kitchen and took lots of effort to fix.”

BLACK+DECKER BCD6W Compact Countertop Dishwasher, 6 Place Settings, White

But things have changed for good today. There are dishwashers that you can plugin and get their service where ever you need. You can say the same about BLACK+DECKER BCD6W Compact Countertop Dishwasher. As the name suggests, you don’t need a permanent space for your dishwashers.

In other words, modern dishwashers are semi-portable. Let’s look at the features that we can find in today’s dishwashers.

What are the Dimensions?

Dimensions are the first thing that you should consider before buying a dishwasher. That’s because your dishwasher should fit the counter in your kitchen or the RV. Let’s look at the dimensions of the BLACK+DECKER BCD6W.

  • Length – 21.5’’
  • Width – 21.7’’
  • Height – 17.2’’

Advantages of Smaller Size and Portability

  1. This dishwasher fits perfectly into small apartment kitchens. You know that in small apartments you don’t get the luxury of space. In such a case, BLACK+DECKER BCD6W is the right solution for you.
  2. This dishwasher does not have a heavyweight. You can move it around with ease whenever the time arises to use it.
  3. If you are planning a camping trip on an RV, this dishwasher is the best choice for you because it can fit into the RV as well.
  4. Because it’s small and portable, you can store it in a cupboard when not using the dishwasher.

Fine Exterior Finish

We do consider the looks of any appliance that we bring to our home. This box-shaped dishwasher is white. There is a black rectangular area in the front. Here you can find the LED indicators and the control panel.

  • Easy-To-Grip Handle

There is a silver color handle in this black area right below the control panel. It has a fine finish, and the grip feels comfortable.

We will talk more about the LED display in a later topic.

Quality Interior that Lasts Long

You know that dishwasher’s interior goes through a lot. Water, increased temperatures, detergent, and oil are part of the cleaning. These conditions and chemicals can cause the interior of the dishwasher to rust fast. So, having a quality interior is a must for a good dishwasher.

A highly durable stainless steel tub interior ensures rust resistance and makes sure your dishwasher lasts long.

How Many Plate Settings Fit into BLACK+DECKER BCD6W?

You can comfortably fit six (6) plate settings into this dishwasher. I also felt surprised when I found out this. For a small dishwasher, this was more than you could ask. You might not have an idea what plate setting means.

One plate setting indicates all the glassware and utensils a person uses in one full meal.

They are,

  • Plates
  • Bowls
  • Saucers
  • Mugs
  • Cups
  • Wine glasses
  • Utensils

You will not require this much space in your dishwasher for an average family. That’s because we all know that we don’t use full plate settings for a casual meal. Besides that, we find four-member families commonly. So this indicates even if you have more guests, your dishwasher will hold on nicely.

Do Your Dishes with BLACK+DECKER BCD6W Compact Countertop Dishwasher

  • 7 Wash Cycles

You know that you can not wash every piece of glassware and utensils similarly. You need different methods of cleaning based on the type of stains and how thorough you need them cleaned. In this dishwasher, there are seven such wash cycles to select.

  1. Normal – Clean your dishes and utensils without any extra care. Ideal for general loads.
  2. Intensive – Wash everything with higher effort, but this will consume more energy and water.
  3. Eco – Focuses on saving water and energy while cleaning your dishes.
  4. Glass – You can wash glasses by changing into this setting.
  5. 90 Minutes – This option will take 90minutes to work on stubborn dirt.
  6. Rapid – For a quick cleaning job on your dishes, this is an ideal option.
  7. Soak – Dishwasher will soak the dishes for a while before starting to clean.

These names are self-explaining the cleaning method. I will let you find out more about them on your own.

  • Racks to Place Everything Methodically

In BLACK+DECKER BCD6W, you have given separate space to place different tableware. Then there is a basket to put in all your utensils. This basket is to make sure a thorough cleaning for them.

Oil from meals will not go away from hot water. Manufacturers have added a detergent dispenser that will help you to get rid of the stubborn dirt. This dispenser has four settings.

As you know, dishwashers use a powerful water spray to remove the stain from the tableware. BLACK+DECKER BCD6W has powerful spray arms that can even get rid of any spot. For effective cleaning, they have added two sprayers instead of one.

There is a three-part filtering method to avoid cloggings in your dishwasher. This filter system is much safer compared to others.

Hi Temp & Heated Dry Option allows you to completely dry your dishes when they come out from the dishwasher. Do you understand what this means? You can get rid of the tiring wiping stage from your chores.

Easy Setup

As I said before, you don’t have to do a lot when you need to use your dishwasher. First, connect the inlet pipe to the hot water line. Then put the draining pipe into your sink. Connect the power cable to a power outlet. You are ready to wash your dishes.
