I don't know why this product is so cheap, but similar Bosch or Beko cost around or over 500.

This has 14 place settings, uses 10L per cycle, has 3rd rack for cutlery, and has a quick wash (40min). Seems like a good deal

No mention of dishwashers on the Kenwood web site (http://www.kenwoodworld.com/uk) and I cannot find anyone other than Currys selling them.

Could this be a case of a retailer licensing the use of a brand name from the owner to add kudos to their own brand products? I wonder whose factory the dishwasher actually comes out of?

Kenwood dishwashers are only sold in Currys, it's essentially their 'own make'.

In terms of quality, think Proline, Alba, Sashio, Bush.

Bit over a week later, But I can confirm they are Hotpoint dishwashers (or so I am led to believe) I just recently had mine repaired and they told me its a rebranded Hotpoint.

DO NOT BUY..!!
This dishwasher is rubbish and it's not worth the money.
The 3D cutlery tray does not secure the cutlery and shoots them all over the place resulting in chipped crockery and potentially damaged machine parts. You have to remove the baskets to retrieve the cutlery from the bottom of the machine.
There is not enough room for the cutlery tray either and I do not know how it could ever take 10 place settings let alone 14!!
We couldn't even get a normal size wine glass or high ball glass in it securely.
We paid £329.99 at Currys but took it back the next day and got our money back.
We now have a Beko, £100 cheaper and a much better machine that does exactly what it says on the tin :-)

Hi everyone,

I can confirm this is a Currys own brand project, licensing the brand name of Kenwood to make customers more confident buying them. The machines are built by Fischer & Paykel and they are cheap no thrills units, but do the job.

The manual you get with the machine is branded as Currys, it is thourough though, and for the price I would not necesarily tell people to avoid it.

Hope this helps. :-)

The trick with fitting glasses into the top basket is to lower the top basket down. If you don't you can't get much more than small mugs or tea cups in the top. However lowering the top basket does then mean that the largest plate diameter that you can get in the bottom basket is only 10.25 inches or 26 cm. My plates are 10.65 inches or 27 cm and the spinner hits them with the top basket lowered. I decided it was better to buy new plates than send the dishwasher back, (after all, we're told we all eat too much these days). It has to be said though that we've not had it a long time so haven't as yet had cutlery fly around the inside but I'm not sure why it should looking at the rack if you load it properly. Just my opinion and I'm not working for Currys.
If I have any problems in the future I will of course let you all know about it.
