Advantages: good size and vey efficient
Disadvantages: outer casing is quite flimsy and easily damaged
My old dishwasher finally died of exhaustion so I decided on this model. My choice was influenced by the fact that I already had a Beko fridge freezer in silver.
The machine arrived very well packed but no excessive polystyrine and was easy to unpack. The fittings are really simple and you do not need to be a plumber or pay someone to install if you are just swapping one dishwasher for another. I would suggest that the water pipe supplied with the machine needs to be longer as I had to buy a replacement as it was 6 inches too short. The instructions are comprehensive and easy to understand. It really is a press and play machine. I have used the economy programme which only takes 30 minutes and was pleasantly suprised to find everything sparkling, even the shepherds pie dish. The economy programme deals easily with a family roast dinner. I cannot imagine a reason to use the extra heat programme as the other 2 are so efficient.
The machine is advertised as quiet and although it is quieter than my old machine I can still hear it from the kitchen over the noise of the TV so that was a bit disappointing.
Size wise I have no complaints. We are a family of 6 and find it copes well with the daily dishes and we only need to put it on more than once in a day when we have guests and there are extra mugs and glasses. It is easy to stack and the cutlery basket holds plenty of cutlery ( although I removed the grill from the top of it as I found it very fiddly and time consuming to put the cutlery in one by one)
The 30 minute programme does leave some items still wet and all programmes seem to leave the plastic wet although they do say they have a drying programme, this doesn't appear to be too efficient.
Summary: a good machine with a decent sized load. Could be a little quiter to really impress
