Well I have been a lucky girl this Christmas, I was well and truly spoilt by everyone and got some really great gifts. This Hotpoint dishwasher was my not-very-romantic gift from my other half, but I was very pleased to get it and so will not complain. He bought it from Currys and I know that it is one of their cheaper brands, but I don't think we need to spend a lot of money on a dishwasher. When it arrived, it was installed for us but the delivery people and we soon were having a look through the manuals. The interior was all shiny and new. We have never owned a dishwasher before, but we found it easy enough to use and were soon up and running with the free samples that were included.
I have to say I was reasonably impressed with its cleaning ability, we scrape all of our plates before loading them up, but don't rinse them. They have come out shiny and clean every time we have used it since Christmas. The cutlery also is consistently clean and shiny, although we often give it a polish with a tea-towel when it comes out. Glasses weren't cleaned quite as well, and they often had a few water marks on them, but to be honest for everyday use we really are not that bothered about this.
One feature we particularly like is the fact that you can set it wash just a half load. Seeing as there are only two of us this means that we don't have to wait to fill it right up before we use it. It also means that we don't need loads of crockery to make up for the stuff in the dishwasher. We run our dishwasher at night and being in a flat the kitchen is next to our bedroom, however this on has a super silent feature and we have never been disturbed by it running when we are in bed. It also has a time delay function, so we can set it go when our electricity is at it's cheapest after 7pm. Finally it has an A energy rating, so it doesn't use masses of electricity and rack up our energy bills.
All in all a great, budget dishwasher that we think is a welcome addition to our kitchen!
Summary: A good budget dishwasher that has plenty of features and is easy to use!
