Advantages: great size
Disadvantages: long cycles
If you're looking for a compact dishwasher to fit in a small kitchen, this one seems to fit the bill. I live alone so this dishwasher is perfect for me. In the past, I've had problems with dishwashers being too large because I wouldnt have enough dishes to make a full load and run it. With this, my problem has been solved.
While this dishwasher isn't perfect, it's not bad at all. There have been times where some of my dishes were a little dirty after the cycle, but I just quickly washed them and everything was back to normal. While it makes me angry to hand wash dishes after running them through the machine, I at least didn't have to do them all.
The cycles can be a little long, so I usually use the quick wash feature. A great part about this machine is that it was rated an A for energy rating. I need to cut down on my energy bills, and running this machine won't put a whole in the wallet.
The machine measures 436 x 550 x 530 mm and consumes per cycle 0.63 kWh / 9.4 litres per Kenwood's site.
Overall, it's an average machine at a good price, and will do the job you're looking for.
Summary: great machine
