I've been using this for a week now and very happy with it. Seems to be the cheapest dishwasher on the market and is a++

Somehow the words "cheapest dishwasher on the market" don't fill me with confidence, and reviews on Reevoo seem to indicate reliability problems in the longer term, but you can't argue with the price for a short term solution, of if you're fitting a kitchen to sell your house!

Bought one of these to replace a broken dishwasher in a property I rent out and was accused of being a slum landlord! One year on it is still working fine.

I've bought a 400 quid dishwasher and a 150 one in the past. Both didn't make it to three years so not sure it's worth spending the extra

I had the slimline version of this. Absolute rubbish - lasted approx 3 months (didn't clean the dishes properly in that time) then it simply gave up the ghost. Complete garbage.

What make was the £400 one? Looking at paying £600 to get 5 year warranty but wondering if cheaper in long run to buy one of these even if it only lasts 2-3 years

We've had this for about 6 months and I personally wouldn't recommend it.

The place settings on the trays are really poor making stacking plates etc difficult to do effectively.

Also, for some reason, it's very easy for items to drop below the bottom shelf and jam the water-jet. This leads to it making a noise similar to if somekind of metal eating banshee were trapped inside.

I paid the same price, so cheap it definitely is, but I think I would pay a bit more next time.

This Grundig is what I would go for. Okay, it is about twice the price of the rebadged currys essentials, but at least you know fir sure that you will have a dishwasher for the next 5 years (comes with free 5 year Warranty). Can also recommend Bosch, which is what I have. But the Grundig seems better value for money.

The unbranded dishwasher which came with our house has just had its 25th birthday. When it finally packs up where do i get another which will last as long (though I probably won't)?

Similar thing here, in a previous house the fitted dishwasher lasted the entire ten years I lived there and never had any problems.

Had two bosch dishwashers in my life, each lasted around ten years of daily use. Middle of the range ones.

I recommend everyone buy the cheapest Dryers and Washers they can get that are energy efficient. I spent £400ish on a Samsung Washing Machine and it broke in a year and they wouldn’t replace it. My new Bush one for £140 carries more weight and cleans every bit as good, plus if it breaks I won’t care too much for that price.

The same with my Dishwasher, they seem to break all the time, usually it’s the pump and it costs over a hundred to get fixed... well I bought a cheap one and it’s listed 2 years and works fine.

I like Bosch stuff but the trouble with most of their dishwashers is that they have plastic inners rather than stainless steel. I'm not aware of any other manufacturer which does that. I recently bought a £199 BEKO for my son's house and that's all stainless. For most white goods BEKO is the best choice of the budget brands so I hope this one will prove so too.

It was a Bosch.

I don't see how this can be rubbish at cleaning dishes? All it does is heat water and then spray it.

Even the premium German brands are made in Poland along side the cheap unbranded.

It's always the pump that goes and it's over 100 quid for a new one to be fitted.

It maybe wasteful, but 50 quid a year for a dishwasher is worth it for me.

Can you get a 5 year guarantee for one costing 250?

I have just replaced my beko dishwasher which lasted for four years with another beko dishwasher. We were happy with it and I hope we are happy with the new one. I looked at buying a super cheap one which included a Kenwood model priced at £209 but when I looked at it, it felt flimsy. At least this Beko one feels solid.

It is always hard to know what to do when it comes to purchasing an expensive model that could pack in or a cheap one that can be replaced easily if it does pack in.

Bought one of these to get me through Xmas 2 years ago as mine broke, didn’t expect it to last. It is still going strong and probs the best dishwasher I’ve ever had

Now £154.99! Nice

After the tv reports of their essential cooker the other day, I think I'll avoid like the plague.

We have a Tricity Bendix washing machine that came with the rented house we have lived in for the past 6 years almost.
I think it's considered a cr***y brand but still does the job and has never had an issue!

Had one of these dishwashers for years. Sold as an "own brand" from many outlets. Mine was from Comet. It just goes and goes. Made in China and its still as good as new. Some silly reviews above. Bargain - Get one ! "

Got this for over a year (1.5 y I think) and still going strong.

Erm...how is this a deal?

Only issue with this is the dishwasher tablet dispenser. Sometimes doesn't drop tablet to bottom of the dishwasher. Fix is just put tablet at bottom of the dishwasher.

I think people should just stop being so damn lazy, and stop relying on modern teckers to wash up there grotty plates..... what in the world is humanity coming to?

...... just hire a butler for fu*ks sake!!

which program was that report on? I would like to watch that

Got an unbranded dishwasher with our new house 25 years ago and it's still going strong (along with the oven, fridge, freezer and hob). Tumble drier is 37 years old! Only our washing machines seem to wear out and even them 8-10 years is typical.

Are we doing something right here or is the new stuff just much lower quality?

It's much lower quality.
The price of white goods has changed very little over quite a number of years.

I inherited a mile from my parents last year when they replaced their kitchen. 16 years old now and still washes perfectly

noticed that to, they make a lot of variations, with some being stainless inside but the cost goes up. Ended up also getting a Beko

If you haven't bought it yet, your best off with a cheap one that will actually work and get a 5 year care plan with currys, grundigs one of the best but there 5 year gurantee compared to currys just isn't as good at all.. next time you're in listen to what the sales guys offer
