Advantages: Quiet, fast wash, fantastic result, large capacity
Disadvantages: Expensive when new, large
If bought new, this dishwasher is pretty expensive. However, we got this very, very cheaply when a family friend was moving countries and couldn't take it with him so wanted to get rid of it quickly (I kind of made it sound like he was fleeing from the police or something then - he wasn't by the way) making this dishwasher fantastic value for us!
My favourite aspect of this dishwasher is that it has a massive capacity. It generally only goes on once every week and a half or 2 weeks as we can just pile up the plates, bowls, cups and cutlery without it ever seeming full and then clean it all at once on a single cycle. This means that the dishwasher is also very economical as one big wash is cheaper than many smaller washes which is what we would have to deal with if we had a washer of a smaller capacity.
The dishwasher has 6 different washing settings but generally, as we have the dishwasher full of dirty plates which after 2 weeks have some pretty dried on food on, we choose the most intense setting which means that the dishwasher can handle pretty much anything we throw it at from spaghetti bolognese plates to burnt on grease from the pan from Sunday dinners. Everything comes out the same... shining!
The wash cycle usually takes just over an hour and then we leave it all to dry for another hour on its own for everything to be perfect fro packing away into the cupboards. During the washing cycle, the dishwasher is remarkably quiet in comparison to other dishwashers we have had in the past and you can only really hear it from within the same room.
The onyl real downside of this dishwasher is that as it is quite big, it may not fit in all kitchens.
I would recommend this dishwasher to anybody, especially if you can get it for as cheap as we did!
Summary: If you can fit it and afford it, get it!
