9. Swan Retro Dishwasher
Very There are nine other colours to choose from with this model, as well as matching retro-inspired products from sensor bins to kettles and microwaves. Those clean lines mean you will have to open the door to check on controls if you don’t programme correctly first time, but the chunky pull handle made it easy to access. Upper and lower baskets were well positioned at default setting, giving taller glasses room on top. This model’s efficient cleaning and the well-balanced height of its baskets meant tall glasses fitted in its top slot with ease.
The timer delay is a great feature if you would rather the machine didn’t run when you are around.
Gentle, safe, clean: the glassCare System.
The glassCare System – consisting of glass protection technology, a special gentle programme, and a heat exchanger – will wash your glassware with the greatest of care.
Some things to keep in mind
Of all major appliances, dishwashers are among the easiest to tell when they’re not doing their job. Sopping or food-encrusted dishes mean something’s not right, but it might just be your loading technique. Some dishwashers need rinse aid or they’ll leave everything wet, thanks to their condenser drying mechanisms. Modern detergent actually reacts to the enzymes in foo so if you pre-rinse your dishes, it won’t properly activate.
Your owner’s manual has diagrams of how you should position your dishes so that the spray arm can reach everything.
