The Smeg DI6012-1 has space to clean 12 place settings, meaning it can clean the daily dishes of a family of 4 in one go. A place setting includes a dinner and dessert plate, 1 bowl, a tea cup and saucer, glass (tumbler etc.) and cutlery set. So you can see just how much room you’re getting here.
If you’ve got a few little ones in the family or other vulnerable people such as elderly relatives living with you then the Hyclean function will be music to your ears. It adds an antibacterial rinse to the end of a cycle to kill off even more germs than a regular wash.
Other programmes include a super cycle which sends temperatures right up, using higher water pressure to remove the toughest of dirt from pots and pans. And you’ve got a height adjustable basket too so whether you’re cleaning long fluted wine glasses or big dinner plates, they’ll fit in.
For those times when you’re in a rush to get plates clean – think dinner parties and family gatherings – the quick wash function is brilliant. It can get a load of plates and cutlery clean in a crazily quick 27 minutes – no need to buy a new set of crockery every time you entertain.
And as the wash performance is A rated with an A+ energy efficiency rating, you won’t be using any more electricity or water than needed in each cycle.
