Product Overview

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."

    Fantastic

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

    Cons:none

    "This is my first dishwasher so I haven't anything to compare it with. I reviewed loads of machines and eventually decided on this one and I have to say I'm sure I made the right choice. I don't have room for a full size but this little one takes a lot more than you think and if I only have one pot to wash by hand then it's still a bonus. Everything comes out sparkling clean and dry and hardly hear it when it's on. Very pleased!!"
