Beko DE2542FS Freestanding Slimline Dishwasher - Silver

A slim model with a quick wash. Slimline dishwashers are a great solution for a smaller kitchen. With 10 place setting capacity the DE2542FS is suitable for a household of 3-4 people. That's 10 sets of plates, cutlery, glasses and saucers. For smaller loads of lightly soiled crockery, there's the rapid 30 minute wash. Great for clearing up after breakfast and lunch. There’s also the half load option that takes care of your dirty dishes without wasting energy or water.

"Best Out There"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Quiet, looks good, rapid full cycle

Cons: none

"My old dishwasher blew up so I did some very quick research to find one that would be as good. I thought that would be easy but was more of a headache than I thought it would be. My criteria was simple - I wanted a machine that would wash in less than an hour on a full cycle and was built so it could take the size of my dinner plates. I ended up trailing round the shops looking at endless dishwashers that all took well over an hour for a cycle. I then found this Beko which claimed to have a speed cycle that takes around 35 minutes and a rapid cycle that takes 58 minutes. Perfect. I took a cardboard copy of my dinner plates and they fitted in perfectly. I love the fact you can change the height of the top basket when you need more space up top - a very simple procedure. So far the machine has lived up to all expectations. I just dont understand why when I went googling the suppliers dont advertise the fact that this Beko is the fastest full cycle machine in the world! It would have made my search so much quicker.Its also much much quieter than my old model. My only tiny critisim is when you shut the door it never feels quite shut as it doesnt click however it obviously isnt a fault as it works fine and doesnt leak. Very very happy with my purchase. It was also a really good price."

"Fantastic!"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, easy to fit, quick!

Cons: would have been nice to have a beeper for end cycl

"Fantastic dishwasher.

We finally gave in and bought a dishwasher due to the endless washing up for 4 kids and 3 adults. We could only fit a slimline one in, so after a lot of reserch went for this one.

Beko seem to be one of the best brands in dishwashers.

Its great, we can cook allsorts of meals now rather than the usual dont fancy cooking a big fussy meal due to all the washing up afterwards lol.

We only need to run it twice a day which we think is fab condsidering its only a slimline one and there are so many of us!

Its quite roomy. You can fit lots of cups and glasses in the top rack. The top rack has to be slid out to adjust height, but to be honest this is both easy to do and very quick, so no problems there.

Cutlery basket is fab and the lid with the slots can be removed if you just want to bung them all in main basket sections rather than spend time fiddling putting them individually in slots!

Its easy to use, very quiet and seems well made.

Its easy to load the tablets and rinseaid. We found it washes really well, and the very cheapy brand tablets worked just as well as the all singing all dancing tablets lol. I think this is also down to how well the dishwasher washes.

The dishes come out lovely and dry as long as you stack them properly.

It doesnt fill up with tons of water or carry on going if the door is suddenly opened, this is fab as our young daughter had a look in it once, in mid cycle and we never ended up with a flooded floor, yay! lol. I expect they all work like this but its something i didnt realise being a 'dishwasher virgin'.

My young kids all love helping loading and unloading it, wonder if they will still be as keen when they are older lol.

Very pleased with it so far. It was easy to fit as well. One simple pipe for waste water, and one pipe for cold water fill. When we ordered it we didnt know how it would work when it came to fitting it, never having a dishwasher before, but it was so simple, ours is next to our washing machine, and we found you can get a 'Y' connector from plumbling supplies places which you screw onto the old pipe then screw the washing machine to one part and dishwasher to the other. We never knew this idea existed and thought we'd have to get it plumbed in my someone, so im just mentioning it incase anyone else is new to the world of dishwashing lol. This adaptor was literally around £4 and was fitted in minutes!

Yep we love this dishwasher. Would have been nice to have some sort of 'beep' on it when its done, but over all very pleased with it, and the glasses sparkle so much more than handwashing!

Oh yes and the cycles are quite quick. Its very energy efficient as well."

"Okay for the price"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet

Cons: poor performance

"This is quite good value for money I guess but I am a little disappointed with the performance of this dishwasher. The rapid setting is next to useless - doesn't even wash coffee mugs properly. The economy wash is usually okay but even the most extensive wash won't clean very dirty dishes. Some items seem to get missed completely."

Beko DE2542FS

You have a selection of programmes with the DE2542FS. Two of them are quick washes; the first is a super quick 30 minute wash which is designed for a smaller load of lightly soiled pots. The second is a 58 minute quick and clean wash, which cleans a larger, grubbier load. Both are really handy if you like to get through the pots as quickly as possible.

The other washes include an Intensive programme for really soiled pots, like casserole dishes that have burnt on food - saving you scrubbing away for hours. There’s also an Economy wash, which takes longer but doesn’t use much water or electricity, costing you less to run.

At only 45cm wide, this dishwasher is perfect if you don’t have much space in your kitchen. With 10 place settings it will still fit in a lot of pots. A place setting compromises of a dinner plate, soup bowl, dessert, tea cup and saucer and cutlery – so you’re able to fit in all these for 10 people.

This model only makes 49dB of noise which is great if you have an open plan kitchen as it won’t disrupt your tv watching. It also has salt and rinse air indicators to let you know when they need refilling, so you won’t forget. They need to be kept stocked up to prevent limescale forming around our pipes, and water marks appearing on your glasses.

Your pots will always come out dry as this dishwasher has a Drying system, so you won’t have to do it yourself. It also has Flood Protection which automatically cuts of the water supply if there’s a risk of a leak. You won’t ever come into a flooded kitchen.
