Customers said they were on the whole pleased with the appliance, they said it did the job quite well and noise was only to be expected because of its size. A common problem seemed to be fitting 10.5″ plates into the dishwasher but customers said that by turning them round and fitting them at an angle they were able to manage. Most were delighted with it’s size.
