This dishwasher is one of the best purchases I've ever made! It's really quiet - you can hardly hear it when it's going. It's really economical to run and apparently uses less water than washing up by hand. All of the dishes come out sparkling - no scraps of food left on plates - even when they have been left overnight without soaking. It's a brilliant time saver and if you hate washing up like me it's a godsend! Although there's only 2 of us, it has a half load option so you don't have to use water for a full load. I really can't think of any down sides to this appliance - although we have noticed that glasses that have been washed with rinse aid tend to kill the fizz in fizzy drinks - but I suppose that would happen with any dishwasher - a quick rinse under the cold tap remedies this. Thie product comes highly reccomended.
