    The interior of the MCSCD6W1 is fairly standard as far as portable dishwashers go. We’re pleased to see it has a stainless steel finish for high durability and good energy efficiency.

    The single removable rack accommodates six place settings and has a cutlery basket, in addition to rack space for cups and glasses. The rack can hold plates sized up to 10 inches. If you want to clean larger plates, you need to remove the cutlery basket to fit them in.
