Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Fairly quiet in use. Simple controls
Bad points:
Slow cycle times. 20+ minutes for a rinse? Doesn't dry very well. Delivered faulty. Couldn't be used until new parts arrived over a week later.

Simon, London Busy mum or dad

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
It looks good; it doesn't have too many knobs and buttons; it is very competitively priced...and it is SMEG.
Bad points:
This is not a product that, in my opinion, does anything for the good reputation that SMEG has deservedly achieved in the marketplace. Disappointing to load. For example: it does not take large dinner plates. Well, they are not even large plates actually, but for some reason they do not fit standing up without fouling the movement of the water rotor. The cutlery containers are particularly useless - suggest these be thrown away. I replaced an Indesit dishwasher with this product and use the cutlery container from that product with some success. I wish I had simply had the Indesit repaired rather than purchase the SMEG!!
The wash cycles are incredibly long. Any disruption to the ultra sensitive programmer results in a reboot process that requires infinite patience - and a lot of wasted time. Best to unplug, leave for 24 hours then start again.
I would not purchase this item again, and would actively discourage others from doing so if at all possible.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Cleans well and fairly quiet.
Bad points:
Wash cycles seem to take a long time. Approx 20 minutes just for a quick rinse. Replacement machine was missing stops on the top tray so we had to wait a week for spares to be sent before it would work.
