Small compact dishwasher
Member Name: sambarwell
Advantages: good options and compact
Disadvantages: doesn't always perform well, you cant fit in big plates
This kenwood dishwasher was bought by myself, as I was fed up with the washing up building up on the side, but I had no where to install a full sized dish washer.
The table top dishwasher was easy to install the worktop above my washing machine, as there is a water feed and waste there along with a power socket.
The dishwasher has the main arm on the bottom, so unlike a full sized one the bottom rack doesn't get water from above and below, just below, yet most pots and pans are mainly dirty on the one side anyway. Everything you would expect is with the dishwasher, such as cutlery rack.
The dishwasher is easy to control with a simple power button, program button to choose one of the 5 options a delay start, for up to 24 hours delay and a pause button, to interrupt the cycle.
Intense: last 2:25hrs and is great for pans and heavy greased and soiled pots and plates.
Normal: last 2:05hrs is for normal plates and everyday pots
Eco: last 2:50hrs is obviously meant to be for efficient, why is last longer, I don't know
It also has a rinse for glasses and a simple soak setting, just to quickly rinse the pots.
The dishwasher mainly works very well and I keep the filters clean, but every now and again it totally fails and simple to wipe marks don't come off.
BUT, if you have dinner plates you will have to put them in on an angle as mine get stuck as there isn't enough head room for them.
Summary: a great buy if you can't fit a full sized dishwasher
