Key Features

Place Setting

'Place Setting' is a measurement of how much crockery/cutlery/etc can fit in the dishwasher. A 'place setting' is defined as: a dinner plate, desert plate, single glass, soup bowl, tea cup with saucer, and an assortment of cutlery.

A greater number of place settings means that the dishwasher can fit more crockery and cutlery in at one, making it faster and more economical for very large cleaning loads.

Cycle Time

This denotes the average time for the dishwasher to complete a full cycle.

The lower the cycle time, the faster the dishwasher will clean your dishes, making it more time and energy efficient.

Noise Level

This denotes how much noise the dishwasher makes when it's in use, measures in decibels (dB).

Less noise makes for a nicer atmosphere while the wash is running, and means the machine is less likely to disturb and annoy people.

Energy Efficiency
