Disadvantages: Slope of upper basket means glasses and cups slip off
The HEDS96880 is a slimline dishwasher that is just about the right size for a young family of four. It has 5 wash settings and a pre-rinse and its rapid programme is over in about an hour which is quick enough to wash up the dinner party crockery over coffee and have it emptied before you go to bed.
We chose this model as we had only a small space in our kitchen and at 45cm it is ideal.
The run cycle is extremely quiet and particularly on the economy wash my suspicion is its pretty good value (it has a AAA rating).
As with all dishwashers you learn what can go where and which meals need the intensive cycle to really get them clean.
On certain items it can be a little harsh and has worn off patterns (not unusual with dishwashers) and the upper basket has a slightly frustrating angle in places which means cups and glasses slip off into the centre, sometimes causing smashes which has been frustrating.
But in general I would recommend this machine as good value for money and an attractive option when space is limited.
Summary: Good value
