Probably won't be of much interest or use to most people this, but I've been looking for a new dishwasher so thought I'd give you the benefit of my experience.
In my opinion the best deal I can get is for the BOSCH SGS46E22. Purchase online from Dixons and use the codes 'DISC10' and 'FREEDEL07' to get it for £254.65. The next cheapest I can find is £288 and most places charge over £300.
The unit has been assessed by Which and scored 69%, just 1% off their Best Buys which range from £340-£720. It was commended for having above average reliability with good water and electrical consumpttion.
Now for the really interesting stuff-:
