Here are the detailed reviews of real users, so that you can form the most clear idea of the technique.
This is my first dishwasher - I confess honestly. I used to be against automation, I thought that it's better than with my hands that nothing can wash it. I also thought that such a device "eats" lots of electricity and water and beats utensils.
Convinced me my friends - a couple of times I went to visit and saw sparkling dishes and listened to enthusiastic speeches about the "helper". I wanted myself. But, in essence. So, the advantages:
- Different temperature regimes.
- Very capacious.
- Quiet work.
- Do not hit the plates.
- Can be washed with salt or3-in-1 tablets. I'm more impressed with just pressed universal.
- The quality of the sink was different - more often good than bad. In general, everything depends on the detergent.
Three years later the first malfunctions began - I can not say exactly what, something with electronics. In the service they did not refuse, they undertook to fix it. This took almost a month. Then I realized how important this machine is to me and how I have lost the habit of washing, cleaning and scrubbing all this kitchen utensils.
It took 2 months - and a new breakdown. Again, I can not say what a failure, because the master did not devote too much attention to me (the woman) in detail. In the end, we decided to buy another typewriter. As you can see, not the most reliable technique, but since it is my first, memories are tremulous and positive. And if objectively - I do not advise buying.
We took this car for a long time, unhappy only with noisy work. Such a feeling that the insulation is fairly economical, because you can hear directly how the water flows down the walls.

Horror - the dishes on top of the outlet are half dirty! Well washes only from below. Means I use very good, import - and all the same here such grief. I do not know how to return the equipment now, because we do not have Ikeys, we need to go to the capital with the hope that they will accept.
On a note! More reviews you can easily find on the net, scoring a model of the machine in the search box.
Let us sum up all of the above. The joint offspring of two well-known giants of home appliances and a Swedish company on description and characteristics turned out quite good, but satisfied users are not so much. It is to be hoped that the manufacturers have corrected design shortcomings and new models much better than their predecessors. Good choice!
