Portable dishwasher owners must hook them up to a water source, such as the kitchen sink, and plug the appliances into a power outlet when they are ready to start a cycle. Users connect the appliance to the faucet using an adaptor, which is included with the purchase. It is recommended that users make sure that there is no cold water in the water lines by running hot water through them for a few seconds before connecting a portable dishwasher. Since portable dishwashers also drain into the sink using a second hoes, it is important to clean the sink out. The water that drains into the sink is very hot, so users should use caution.

In addition to the standard cycles used for most dishwashing tasks, there can be other cycles for tackling special tasks. You can have a portable dishwasher with a delicate setting (can wash china and other hand-washables without damaging them), scrubbing cycle (remove tough stains and grease that are hard to get rid of in a standard cycle), fast wash cycle (make it possible to run a load of dishes quickly when users are in a hurry) or even have a sanitizing cycle (which heats up the water to extremely high temperatures in order remove bacteria for germ-conscious users).
