Advantages: Very quiet and good performance
Disadvantages: Large cutlery tray
My dishwasher broke down and, after having a look at it my husband didn't think it was worthwhile to have it repaired. He said we could do without one for a while, but then, after nearly two weeks of washing up, I put my foot down!
I researched dishwashers and thought the Hotpoint FDL570G looked the most suitable for me. I had recently bought an Hotpoint fridge freezer in the colour graphite so I thought it would look nice if I matched the dishwasher to the fridge freezer. I mainly chose it though for it's specifications.
I usually buy appliances from Comet as I have an EDGE card which means if I spend a over certain amount I can have six months interest free credit and with the card it's easy. However, I couldn't get to a comet store in time and wanted to see before I bought so couldn't simply order online therefore as I have a Curry's store reasonably near we looked in here. This dishwasher was on sale in Currys for £359.99 and I knew it was on offer in Comet for only £299.99. This was pointed out to a store salesperson who agreed to do a price promise and as there was also an offer for free delivery, including removal of old appliance so I was well happy!
A few days later my dishwasher arrived and has been used most days since.
Dimensions- 85x60x60 (h,d,w cm)

So far I am pleased with the wash quality. I mainly use the everyday wash program which performs well even after a Sunday lunch. Sometimes I use the quick wash programme and this cleans well although the drying of contents isn't as good on this cycle.
It is very quiet when washing.
This machine has a delay timer which I haven't used but some might find this useful.
I like the fact that the upper basket is adjustable and I can fit wine glasses in here in an upright position.
The cutlery basket is a little on the large side and does waste some space but the design of it is quite good.
It has a concealed element which I prefer. It's safer.
This dishwasher has a built in water softener.
It has electronic controls.
I think for the price it is well worth it. Hopefully it will last for some time, which is one of the main things we all want with appliances, along with a good performance and price.
I hope this review helps if you are looking for a dishwasher.
Summary: Very pleased so far
