    Default Tell me about your dishwasher, the good, the bad, the ugly.

    I'm on the hunt for a dishwasher so sick of this 3x a day

    Please tell me about yours (we rent so are looking at freestanding ones) I really want to know about the following

    Do you have to rinse dishes first?

    Does it really do a good job cleaning pots/pans?

    How hard is it to fit things into?

    Is it hard to clean?

    Do you have to dry the dishes after?

    I can see that they have different wash cycles, do I really need 14 of them?

    TIA

    Does it really do a good job cleaning pots/pans? Mine doesn't but i have very large pots and pans, so not sure about smaller ones.

    How hard is it to fit things into? Hard for me because i have large pots, pans and all different sizes of bowls. If you only use plates i dont think it's that hard.

    Is it hard to clean? No. But i rinse dishes so not much to clean.

    Do you have to dry the dishes after? No. They come out perfectly dry.

    I can see that they have different wash cycles, do I really need 14 of them? I tried them all but then only ever use 1

    TIA
    i have a freestanding Miele. my answers are in the quote.

    Smeg which is great but... The icons make no sense to me so you need to read the manual to make sure you press the right cycles. It steams really well and has lots of room for pots etc... Everything comes out dry too.

    I started a thread awhile back and got a new model Bosch (without the cutlery draw) and am extremely happy with it. A lot of people recommended Bosch to us and I'm glad we choice the one we did.

    I only rise off food so it doesn't clog anything. Otherwise I rise nothing.

    Cleans great. No problems so far.

    Don't dry, just put away.

    It's easy to stack. I get 2 days worth of dishes in one load.

    I've never cleaned dishwasher. I didn't know you had too

    We have an Electrolux that's terrible in all departments.

    Avoid at all costs!

    We have a freestanding 60cm Blanco dishwasher. No complaints so far. It fits our larger plates and bowls and pots and washed them well irrespective of whether they have been rinsed beforehand. It's also quick.

    Asko. Excellent in all areas! I scrape food but never rinse and it's awesome. I use most of the different cycles depending on.what I put in. It fits massive plates, pots and pans. We bought a cover for it as we had it freestanding until we built our new kitchen.

    We love our Miele dishwasher. Having a top rack for cutlery is great. Frees up room down the bottom.

    Our house had a 'euro' dishwasher -junk

    Monday i'm getting a beko delivered, half price from appliances online. - bought out new washer from them a few weeks ago- fairly impressed with the service

    I refuse to buy from the elrctrolux group based on the pos washing machine we had, this model seemed to do well in reviews.

    The bosch ones kept coming up with smell issues in many reviews
