Advantages: it washes dishes
Disadvantages: fiendishly expensive to run.
I like the upper basket which you can raise or lower. You can get quite a lot in and it washes well. HOWEVER unless you actually LIKE watching your electricity meter going around faster than the speed of light, buy something else. I simply could not understand why my electricity bill was so high bearing in mind I live in an eco home with no electric kettle, microwave, electric cooker, tumble dryer or immersion heater. I happened to wash a load of dishes yesterday and on passing the meter, I checked it as I do several times a day and was horrified!!! The red light which usually blinks once every 12 seconds, was one continuous blink!!! Even the toaster doesn't make it go as fast. I have a feeling it is the drying part at the end where the element heats up which is expensive and sadly, there is no way to prevent this in order to just air dry with th door open. So it is off to the council tip with it over the weekend. This dishwasher seems to be for rich people. Certainly I can't afford to run it.
Summary: only buy if you own shares in the electricity company
