    Fisher and Paykel twin drawer, I've had at my last 2 houses and wouldn't use anything else! No problems, and to me more hygienic as you can fill one drawer and wash at a time, rather than have dirty dishes waiting for a full load.

    Only drawback, it doesn't fit the dishwasher tablets, it's powder or liquid only. Strange from a top selling dishwasher but easy to work around

    I agree with this except you can use the dishwasher tablets! The cutlery baskets in the newer versions have a little space to place the tablets.

    I can actually fit more dishes in my twin drawer dishwasher than I could in my old regular dishwasher.

    Bosch. I wouldn't consider anything else. We had a F&P (quite old) and then a new Smeg dishwasher at our old place. Both were terrible. We put in a Bosch slimline into our new kitchen last year and loved it. We've recently moved and our new house has the same model but in a normal size, and we love it as well.

    Yes, there's a little tray that sits in the cutlery basket to place the tablet on :-)

    I got my dishwasher about 6 months ago so maybe it only came out with this feature more recently.

    I have a Fisher & Paykel regular dishwasher and I love it, my only gripe is it's a little loud
    I have had it for 18 months and it hasn't missed a beat

    Bosch; german made. Has a cutlery drawer is so super quiet. Our old one you couldn't hear over it but this one hardly notice its on. Buttons are on top of door so kids can't play with them

    I have the F&P twin drawer and love it but a salesman recently told me that they are now being made in Thailand (used to be NZ) and that they are having more and more problems with them.

    I also recently had it serviced and the repairman said that he repairs more F&P twin drawers than any other brand and he would never recommend them.
    So I'm a little conflicted, I love ours, but am not hearing good reports of late. The repair bloke said he'd buy a Meile or Asko as his first choice but if they are out the price range then he'd go an LG direct drive.
