Having just done a review on a healthy grill in which I mentioned that the parts can be put in the dishwasher, I felt I must tell you about my other godesend - My Whirlpool ADP 242 dishwasher.

I have had this model for nearly a year and haven't had any problems at all.
Having used a Bosch built in dishwasher in a previous house and not being that impressed by it I wasn't that sure about using a Whirlpool which I didn't have much knowledge about. This is a freestanding model.

Looking at other makes at the same time they all seemed to have a many dials as my washing machine - this one caught my eye as it has only 2 very easy to understand dials and 2 buttons.

There are 3 programmes that can be selected. A pre-wash, full load and economy for lightly soiled and lesser loads. The temperature selections are 50 degrees and 60 degrees for very soiled pots.

At the very bottom of the machine inside is the salt chamber which has a transparent plastic screw on lid. Through this lid is a visable green indicator - when it is visable the chamber is full of salt - when it's gone it needs refilling. A filling cone is provided to do this.

On the inside of the door is the detergent dispenser - a very simple flip down door which is also where the rinse aid is filled up. Again very straight forward and easy to access.

The bottom rack is on wheels and pulls right out onto the door for easy loading. It features the usual cutlery caddy which is removeable - something that my other dishwasher did not have. This means you can take the cutlery caddy to the cutlery drawer - a good safety aspect.

The Whirlpool ADP 242 is a simple to look at appliance in brilliant white which looks like one of the more expensive makes. This model cost me £268 and to be honest I don't think that a dishwasher of twice the price could do any better.

It gives excellent results everytime (providing you keep the salt topped up) and the pots are totally dry at the end of the cycle.
What more could you ask for?

Well done Whirlpool.
