The Neff S51L43X0GB is a nice dishwasher that comes in a fully integrated design. It provides good cleaning and it is a machine that is easy to use. With an estimated energy consumption of 290 kilowatt hours per year, it also offers a good level of efficiency.
This is a 12 place setting machine, and it comes with an interior that offers the user a nice array of options. It has folding plate racks in both baskets, plus it has folding cup trays. In addition to that, you get a top basket that can adjust to three positions and you have the cutlery basket. It is a good level of versatility and it is not overly complicated to load the machine.
The S51L43X0GB from Neff has four cycles for washing dishes, and it should be enough to cover the needs of the average home. A nice feature here is that it has automatic sensor washing for the normal cycle. The machine uses sensors to detect things like load size and soiling to optimize the performance. In addition that, it has the chef cycle, which is for intensive cleaning and it has economy and quick wash.
Overall, the different wash cycles all perform well for their intended purposes. The quick wash is good for when you need dishes in a hurry, but it does not work well for loads that have heavy soiling. The economy cycle clocks in at about three and a half hours, so it is great for saving water and electricity, but you are going to have to wait for it to finish.
The features on this Neff dishwasher are good, but it is missing some things that you may want. With this model, you get the VarioSpeed feature for reduced cycle times, and it has an extra dry feature. The feature that some people might miss is the half load option. You have no half load setting, but it does have the Neff LoadSensor, which does compensate for load size.
Using this appliance is very simple and straightforward. It has a display with a countdown timer in the centre of the control panel. To the left of the display, you have the buttons for each of the different cycles, then to the right, you have buttons for VarioSpeed, the delay start timer and extra dry. Another nice feature that comes with this model is that it has the info light. The machine shines a light on the floor when it is in operation, which makes it easier to tell when the cycle is still running.
