Disadvantages: Really Bad At Cleaning
I'll start with a quick overview of my experiences. Firstly, I found the slimline machine was really a letdown, after my original excitement about the dishwasher I soon became disillusioned and still longer for a better machine. The overall capacity isn't what you'd expect so get used to doing 2 loads which is an inconvenience. You will also find that when removing items after the wash that most still have dirt or marks on them so they need to be done twice. My advice is to look around.
One of the few positives of this machine is the dimensions which allow it to fit into a small kitchen with ease. I live in an apartment and so have very limited space as far as the kitchen goes, this machine is ideal when space is of utmost importance.
The downside to the small size is obviously the quantity of dishes that can be placed inside, living with my partner it copes well with the demands of 2 people but I feel a family would really need a larger machine.
The machine comes with various settings to tailor each wash with whats inside. This is a really good idea as the quick cycle takes roughly 30 minutes with the more intensive ranging up to 2 hours which includes 3 stages of washing. All of this information is located on the front of the machine. The buttons seem complicated but are easy to get used to.
The features are good idea's but the quick cycle never gets things clean so you will find yourself using the quick cycle more often than not
I really would not recommend this machine to anyone that I like and suggest they look around for a more complete machine.
Summary: Look around for a better machine
