Good dishwasher when it's washing. Have owned one for over 3 years and use it almost every day. Encountered a problem with the programme selector but it was a technical problem due to initial production and not due to constant use wear and tear. The problem was it won't select properly and could take days to start a wash but once this was fixed, it got washing again. Engineer reckons it can happen with any other brand as well.

As a family, we often have quite greasy dishes and mostly wash at 65 (intensive) the hottest from the available options but do choose 45 (eco) for non greasy dishes which is equally fine. It actually has straight forward options and no complicated buttons so can easily select what you need. A full wash is approximately 90mins and all washes come out hot, sparkling clean even pots and pans.

Very easy to fit in loads of dishes for one wash and there is also an option for half load wash but it's useless. It uses the same amount of water but only washes the top trays so don't think you are saving the planet. Bottom tray, back dish holder can also be folded down to allow space for bigger items such as pots and pans.

It is cheaper than other dishwashers with similar functionalities. Recently moved homes and feared that it won't fit into the dishwasher space but it fit in perfectly so it does have a standard size. We own the white one but they come in silver too, I guess it really depends on what suits you best.

Can be opened while it's washing for a quick drop or pick and it's absolutely fine, it will pick up again as soon as the door it closed. No need to worry about children just opening, they will be older and wiser by the time they are able to fully open it while at work.

It does what it says on the tin, dishwashing.
