"This review is written 6 months after purchase.
This dishwasher is a huge improvement over my old one. It washes better, more quickly and more quietly.
Without doubt its best feature is the 58 min wash which cleans and dries perfectly. Most dishwashers offer 1/2 hr washes that clean lightly soiled dishes only and leave plates damp OR 2 hr washes that clean and dry properly. Getting 2 hr cleaning in 1 hr is brilliant.
I use dishwasher powder, salt & rinse aid so and I don't have any experience with tablets - the cleaning is excellent. Drying is also very good IF you follow the instructions in the manual to leave the dishwasher door open for steam to escape before emptying.
Unlike some other economy brands there is a stainless steel rather than plastic interior.
The 2 pull out baskets run smoothly. The upper basket is height adjustable so you can accommodate big plates downstairs OR tall glasses upstairs but not both at the same time.
The cutlery basket has a divider that lets you put each item of cutlery into a separate section.
The dishwasher hasn't put a foot wrong. There are 4 main wash programmes.
- Quick wash - like most 30 min wash programmes the dishes aren't really dry but you are told this in the manual.
- The 58 minute A class wash is fantastic for all but the most dirty of dishwasher loads. It washes at 60c so it helps keep the dishwasher squeaky clean inside.
- the 2 hr eco wash cleans effectively but personally I've not seen any huge benefits in cleaning power over the 58 min wash
- 70 degree hot wash. I've only used this once.
The dishwasher isn't pretty but it's sleek and inoffensive.
Bottom line: I would buy one again without hesitation."
