When our dishwasher broke last year we had to look around for a new appliance.
Now my husband is a proud kiwi so really wanted to get a Fisher and Paykel dish drawer appliance. We bought ours from 247 electrical and paid £550 which I guess is a lot for a dishwasher but it seems to be money well spent.
The dish drawer is split into two drawers, each of which is a working dishwasher in its own right. It is a great silver colour so is very stylish looking.
There are 9 different washing cycles that you can use - normally we just use the 99 minute general wash but there is a quick wash, a glass wash and a 153 minute "really dirty saucepan" wash. You just open the drawer and press the button on the top to select the wash. As noted above it is two seperate washing machines so for a dinner party you can have the pans washing for 153 mins and do an express 20 minute wash for the plates - genius!
This has the highest water and power electricity efficiency ratings so are good for the environment. We seem to be using much less power since we bought this dishwasher.
Provided that you make sure that you keep it clean this works immediately.
You should not use dishwasher tablets in this product, use dishwasher powder and rinse aid. You also need dishwasher salt but when it is needed a light comes on so you know exactly when to put it in.
The main advantage of this is that, if you live alone, or in a couple and don't use many dishes with a normal dishwasher you either have to put it on half empty or may have to wait several days to fill it. In that time there is a horrible smell and you can't use the dishes. The key advantage of this is that you only fill one level and then put it on so you only need half the dirty dishes to fill it!
It is well worth getting a plumber to do this for you. Getting a dishwasher installed can be tricky!
THis is an excellent product, although it is a little bit more expensive than other dishwashers. (touch wood) it is very reliable and is particularly suitable if you live alone or in a couple.
