Peter, Peterborough

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This smaller machine does an excellent cleaning and cycling job and is excellent value for money. It is a remarkable improvement on the replaced (10 year old) machine; very clean and shiny results. Top marks
Bad points:
noise suppression could have been much better. Casing at times rattles and seemingly no or too little noise deadening materials were used. This was a replacement for a full size Miele - downsizing because of only two in family now. The difference in noise is palpable.

My dinner plates don't fit into the dishwasher which I find a real hassle because that is what I bought it for! I work long hours and the last thing I want to do is wash dishes.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Extremely quiet performance, washes and dries well.
Bad points:
Not the easiest machine to load unless you have regular sized and shaped crockery. I can't get as much in it as my previous slimline Zanussi and it takes a lot longer to wash.

Confirmed purchaser Busy Working Mum.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The cutlery box keeps items apart so they all get cleaned very well. The top shelf area has a fold down shelf for long knifes and the like. This is in segments so you can use only what is needed of that shelf so making the other unused area available for tall glasses. This is our 3rd dishwasher and by far the best so far
Bad points:
Cant think of anything about it that can be called bad.
