Let me begin by saying I had never heard of Fisher and Paykel when I went shopping for a new refrigerator some three years ago. But since then I have bought only Fisher and Paykel when it comes to the larger kitchen appliances and if they made toasters too, I'd buy it. The reason for my devotion to this brand is that everything I've bought works incredibly well, including this stylish dishwasher.
Firstly it works great, the dishes and cutlery sparkle, the glasses gleam and the crustiest of pots come out like you had just bought them. Of course one of the big selling points of this dishwasher over others is the double drawer design. Why have two drawers? Why not get the more traditional single drawer option? Well in my experience this two drawer system makes perfect sense and makes life a lot easier.
Secondly you don't always have enough to fill an entire dishwasher and if you're anything like me you wouldn't want to waste water, electricity or detergent on half a wash, no such problem with the Fisher and Paykel. The water rating per drawer is only 4. While the water consumption per drawer is only 6.7L.
The energy rating per drawer is 3. While the energy consumption per drawer is 136 kWh/yr. Furthermore it's nice to have clean plates in one end and the other holding the next batch for washing below. This way you save money and the planet. Everyone's a winner.
There are 9 wash programs.
And finally -Rinse
At the end of each cycle it beeps.
About the drawers themselves, there are 6 place setting capacity per drawer
long stemmed wine glasses,champagne flutes and other long glassware fit comfortably.
Adjustable side racks are a must for any dishwasher and great quality ones can be found here
Clean dishes indicator.
Energy saving, delay start option - up to 12 hours. This is good option if you want your dishes washed and ready for when you come home.
Genuine half load wash option. This feature can be found on lots of other machines but this one has Intelligent load sensing for optimum performance.
There is a Key lock and child lock option for peace of mind.
And a simple one-button start feature, no faffing around with millions of buttons.
If you have read my review of the Fisher and Paykel refrigerator, you'll already know that my only problem with their "EZkleen stainless steel finish" is that yes it's very easy to clean but it scratches incredibly easily. It should be renamed "EZscratch"
This is the only fault I can find in an otherwise
perfect piece of machinery.
Summary: Stylish top of the range performance.
