location o f cutlery drawer makes it awkward to place in other items. Top and bottom runners not smooth enough. Runner wheels seem to stick. Not as easy to load and unload as our previous which was a Bosch. I would not recommend this washer .

Confirmed purchaser Busy mum or dad

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It doesn't cost much to run and fits in a small area easily. You can use the cheapest of tablet brands and it still washes everything well, no residues and not very often any food missed. This is the second one I have bought - the first was used every day for 6 years, and I only replaced it because it began to look a bit tired and the door where the tablet goes stopped shutting because a piece of plastic from the clip had perished - it could have been fixed. What's more, I only ever put rinse aid and salt in it on day one and never had to again as the tablets were enough!!!
Bad points:
I must admit the second one I purchased does not wash quite as well as the first one did - the first one was excellent - maybe slight modifications over the past 6 years were not needed?
It can take a long time on a cycle, but it does use low energy so maybe this is why, so if I had to chose, I'd rather wait for a long cycle than pay more on my electric bill.
Plastic doesn't dry, but I think that may be true of all dishwashers.
There is a knack to loading it, you have to try and juggle everything around to fit it all in, which can be a little frustrating if you're short of time.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Slimline - fits in the small space we have
Cycles - the short cycle is complete in under an hour
Bad points:
No real space for glasses
You can't put anything too dirty on top shelf with glasses, otherwise it stains them and is not removed in cycle
