Avoid this product! We have only had this integrated dishwasher a week. The manual mentions that it is a "Normal Phenomenon" for steam to come out through the vent of the machine which is located on the very middle top of the machine directly beneath my worktop. It has since damaged the Duropal worktop we bought only after TWO uses!!!
When the machine is opened even 20 minutes after use, you find that the steam pours out through that vent but it is also released throughout the sides wetting every single angle of the sides of my cabinet side panels. The steam is so bad that it has also damaged one of my panels. The ABS protective plastic on the front of one of my panels has been attacked by the steam and has started to split the MDF and separate the ABS plastic from the panel. I have only had my brand new kitchen in for 2 weeks and this has happened only after 2 uses of this appliance. I would not recommend this dishwasher to anyone.
It comes with a very flimsy piece of plastic that Baumatic call "The Condensation Strip". This flimsy piece of plastic sticker which should as the manual says "...will deflect steam that rises from your appliance, away from the underneath of the worktop" simply DOES NOT WORK! The steam is collected underneath this stupid piece of plastic and does not deflect the steam at all judging from what it has done to my worktop and my panel.
