'The wash with a sparkle'
I have chosen to write in a slightly more concise review style to experiment with what is popular and what isn't, if you have any suggestions please feel free to mention them - it would be appreciated hugely!
I bought this rather inexpensive dishwasher due to several recommendations from friends and families, not in particular recommendations for this product; rather suggestions that I needn't spend an hour doing the washing up each evening. I could simply let a machine do it for me...
===== Worries =====
If you are like me you tend to worry quite a bit before you part with your cash, especially when it is a quantity of cash in the three digits. In particular I had quite a few worries about the cost and reliability of the product as I noticed it was far cheaper than alternatives - some of my worries included:
*would it be too expensive to run (similar to a tumble drier)
*it would not last long
*it would ruin certain cups, plates and dishes
*it surely couldn't keep its sparkle after fifty washes?
=====my experience =====
Like most of the products I end up purchasing there really was no need to worry. When the product turned up it was easy to set up and looked acceptable, arguably not as aesthetically pleasing as others, however for the price I was not too fused.
After a few loads (i.e. a whole dinner set, I tend to wait and fill the dishwasher up to the top; to save energy, to save my precious and rather expensive Finish tablets and most importantly save me time and effort) the dish washer was still performing brilliantly, I was indeed happy.
Since that first use I have encountered no problems and the quality hasn't faltered since and therefore I can recommend on behalf of the quality and the reliability.
Retrospectively I would argue it is £230 well spent: it saves you time, effort, money and the environment (it is apparently more ecologically friendly to use a dishwasher rather than washing up - however I find this hard to believe)
I absolutely love my dishwasher it is one appliance in my house that I would not live without, and I can honestly say I am so happy I decided to follow the advice. After all these machines were invented to help people like me and you... So why on earth would you want to sit at home next to the sink washing up, when you can be out while a machine does it all for you?
It is important to note some items do not fit in this dishwasher (i.e. very large wine glasses, however the majority do) and other items cannot be placed in the dishwasher as the high temperatures can damage the material (I think this is only relevant for more expensive items, not your £2.50 Wilkinson's plates!)
Positive: Relatively cheap, reliable and good quality product
Negative: Not as 'pretty' as the other dishwashers in its class...
Thank you very much for reading I hope this more concise review has still be useful!
