Dishwashers: Compare features & prices Beko DE2542FS review Back to Results

This dishwasher from Beko is one of few slimline dishwashers available that can hold 10 place settings. Beko is known for its reasonably priced dishwashers, but can this one leave the dishes clean, dry and free of watermarks? We sent it to the Which? test lab and pitted it against our mixed load of dishes covered in baked-on egg and dried milk. Read on to find out whether it managed to impress us.

GOOD VALUE
Bought this from Currys as an urgent purchase as previous Bosch gave up ghost on a bank holiday. Worried that was so cheap but does the job. For those who have said it is noisy I think: 1. you are wrong 2. you need to get out more - there are more important things to worry about. Once had adjusted basket height and taken off some of the superfluous holding bits in top row it is doing fine. Tried on fast clean and still does a good job - some issues with drying verus older Bosch but again - use a cloth! Overall good so far.

Having had several second hand dishwashers over the past 16 years, when the latest inherited one broke, we finally splurged on a new one. As space is limited, we went for another slimline version to replace the one that broke (Smeg). This one is so much better on space and cleaning. It is fast, competant and I don't think it's noisy at all! The upper rack is adjustable for height and fits a lot in, as does the lower rack. There are five of us in the family and I only run it once a day! I use salt and rinse aid as well as detergent, but I hardly have to refill it. You can set it according to the water hardness in your area. It's also an A rated machine, so should be cost effective. The main wash programme is done in an hour which is very unusual, but the dishes are cleaner than the previous dishwasher that took and hour and fifty minutes! The design doesn't feel terribly robust (a bit plasticky), but then as long as it washes well, I'm not bothered! Looks smart.

This is the first dishwasher i have owned.it cleans well although i have noted that if the dishes are in consecutive slots it sometime misses areas especially with baking trays. Occasionally items are not dry so i have found that i am needing extra rinse aid, this could though be down to the detergent and not the machine.Overall though i am satisfied especially with the amount it can hold
