The Magic Chef MCSCD6W3 Compact Dishwasher’s width is approximately 22 inches, and its height is about 17 inches.
The inside cavity is slightly more than 21 inches, which allows it to house a sturdy dish rack to wash up to six place settings.

Compared to some of the other dishwashers reviewed on this site, the MCSCD6W3 has two features that stand out.
They are the hygienic residual drying system and anti-flood device. The hygienic residual drying system is a technology that uses heated air to help dry and sanitize your dishes.
The anti-flood device detects when the water level is too high; this can help with preventing potential leaking from the unit.
The front panel houses easy-to-use electronic controls that let you choose from six wash cycles.
There is also a delayed start feature that allows you to set a convenient time within a 24-hr period to wash your dishes.
A digital display visually lets you know where in the wash cycle the unit is. Lastly, an audible end of cycle signal alerts you before automatically shutting off.

Who It’s For
We mentioned at the beginning that the Magic Chef MCSCD6W3 Countertop Dishwasher was a perfect alternative for those without space or dedicate plumbing in their kitchens, but we also found that it is ideal for RV owners as well.
Now we are not talking about the kinds that rock stars travel in, but the ones that the mom and pop retirees drive.
Wait a second, those are better than the rock star RV’s, but you get the picture.
What we Like About the Magic Chef Dishwasher
- Cleans your dishes very well

What we Don’t Like About the Magic Chef Dishwasher

- Controls get stuck after limited use
- Poor customer service
If you find that the MCSCD6W3 Countertop Portable Dishwasher is not for you, then consider the Danby DDW621WDB as an alternative.
We also believe the SPT SD-2213S is a suitable option too. This model gets high marks for cleaning dishes well and generous interior capacity.
The Magic Chef MCSCD6W3 Countertop Portable Dishwasher, with all its features and positive qualities, would be ideal for anyone wanting the convenience of a dishwasher, but it has misses the mark in many categories.
We recommend looking at other compact dishwashers before buying this one.
