Excellent dishwasher in its class

Advantages: Economy and half load features, timer delay, plenty of space, quiet
Disadvantages: Wash cycle takes a long time
Our previous Bosch dishwasher was starting to struggle a little with the rinse cycle of the wash programme after many years of excellent service. Because of the quality and reliability we had experienced with that machine we decided to replace it with a newer model. The new dishwasher has very similar features and is what we expected in terms of space and low levels of noise, and it washes the dishes thoroughly .
I particularly like the delay feature which switches the machine on several hours later as we run it on Economy 7 to save money. The cover on the cutlery basket is useful for separating individual items of cutlery so they get properly cleaned. The shelves on the top basket of the machine tend to get in the way and I will probably remove half of them, keeping the knife rack in place as this is definitely a useful feature. This is related to another minor problem with the top basket, it seems to be designed to take cups and saucers primarily but very few people use these and it is tricky to fit mugs into the space as they are so much larger.
Overall we are very happy with our purchase and it is certainly good value for money.
Summary: Good performance and reliability for the price
