...INTRODUCTION...


The Beko DWD5411 is a full size dishwasher and is the fastest dishwasher I've ever owned. It sure beats washing the dishes after you've spent hours cooking and minutes eating. Unfortunately you still have to unload it afterward (they still haven't figured a way around that yet!) but its a dishwasher that is quite powerful and astute at cleaning dirty dishes.

...FEATURES....


12 of the best
The DWD4311W has 12 settings for cleaning your dishes. But to be honest, I only ever regularly use 2 of them, and have never used option 4 to 12. So the main question is, how good are those 3 options that are used all time?
Well, one of them is a very effective "fast" clean option, a quick wash that is able to purposefully clean a small load of dishes in 30 minutes.
The main setting used is very efficient (as suggested by its AAA energy efficiency rating), again being able to clean most stains off with a minimal energy usage. This is evident from the well laid out electrical control panel on the front of the washer, which has easy translatable indicator lights (if you're planning on buying your first dishwasher, easy-to-read on-face instructions help you do even the most complicated washes in no time)

Basic but Bright
If I'm honest I studied the tech specs of this dishwasher to judge if I wanted it or not, not its visual appeal. Tucked under the work top in the corner of my kitchen, its face is pleasant enough to not stand out like a sore thumb. So whilst flat in design like the back of the bus (I prefer smooth curved designs generally), it doesn't necessarily evoke the same connotations.
But don't worry - the DWD5411 is much more reliable than the buses! My friend owns one and its dependability has been unquestioned since he bought it, and so far, so has mine.

Size
A good feature that was a pleasant addition from my older dishwasher is the adjustable stacks for all manor of dishware. My older dishwasher struggled to accommodate my bulkier/odd cookware on those nights were egg and chips just wouldn't do for Dinner. This one however works wonders. If it doesn't fit, work it out, and it'll probably fit in different adjustment of the stacks.
This novelty wares off after a while however, as bending over a dishwasher yanking and shoving stacks in some sort of poor-mans rubiks cube game gets very annoying very quick. SO before long you soon resort back to using the standard configuration. So how well does this configuration accommodate dishware? Well, in a pretty average way to be honest. Plates fine. Medium sized Pans Fine. Woks...uh-oh.
I guess that's the burden of most medium-to-large sized (60cm wide) dishwashers. And this one is no exception.

Noise
Yup, pretty noisy. But in a strangely therapeutic sort of way. It is quite loud, but its not a distinct noise - not the kind that makes you want to leave the kitchen. In fact, when i throw it on (usually late at night before I go bed), its quite a welcoming sound when you go into the moonlit kitchen to let the dog out the back door.
Alright, I failed in trying to romanticism a dishwasher, but its definitely a bearable sound.

A mean clean?
The most important part of the dishwasher is of course how well it cleans. This is a combination of factors, what dishwasher powder/tablet you use, how dirty the dishes are etc, but the main thing is how good the dishwasher is at doing its job.
And this one is very good. Case in point was a family get together eating lots of spaghetti bolognese, followed by lots of drinking, then hours later someone remember to clean the dishes. Worked in stains could have been a tough task for some dishwashers, but this one made easy work of tough stuff. As it does alot of the time.
One downside is the time it takes to cool down after cleaning. But I've always put the load on to clean before bed, and woke up in the morning with the dishwasher ready to unload before work - so its never really be a big issue.

Maintenance
So far, not the one quarrel since I've bought it. The door closes snugly, and doesn't waiver, and the washes are as strong as ever - even after a vigorous family schedule with all sorts of meals.

Summary:
Whistles whilst it works, but a bit of noise is worth hearing for the overall quality of this washer

Thanks for reading, hope this review was helpful
