Looks good and does the job

Very happy with it. Easy to load and everything is coming out clean. I am hoping Swan will be doing a matching washing machine in the not too distant future

Pros: Looks good Cons: Expensive

Great Looking Dishwasher

I love the look of this dishwasher and it complements the matching fridge perfectly. Easy to install. Good build quality. Hidden controls which is great. The eco program seems to do everything I want and I find the time delay essential as I am on economy 7. Good capacity and you can fold the shelves down.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money Cons: None

very poor

I've owned many dishwashers with no issues, always been thrilled with them. I decided to splash out for the nice look this time. It was a mistake. The dishwasher is useless. Badly designed functionally. Blades get blocked with food. No blade at the very top of the machine so anything put on the top remains dirty one side as no water reaches it. If you put any items anywhere near the tablet pocket the doesn't open! No light indicating the cycle is finished. I end up having to revwash most items. Would not advise anyone to splash out.

Pros: Looks good Cons: Expensive, Poor quality

Cool Retro Cream Dishwasher

Lovely retro design. Slightly more yellowed then cream but still looked good. Well packaged, prompt delivery, excellent customer care and notifications. Best ever. Bottom tray is smooth glide, sturdy and bigger than average cutlery tray which is great. Top tray not so good. A bit wobbly and tiered shelf mean that glasses fall around until packed full. Dials easy to use but all controls inside so can't see when it is on or finished as no light on outside. Dishwasher tablet does NOT dissolve if put in the door compartment. It falls out near front and just sits there till the end. You have to put it on the floor of the dishwasher near the middle but then it works. I checked this out in trouble shooting section so be aware if you have same issue. Excellent cleaning though.
