Slimline dishwasher reviews
Baumatic BDIS410 – £250
The fully integrated Baumatic BDIS410 is a slimline dishwasher that’s designed to be hidden behind a cabinet door in your fitted kitchen, and can hold up to 10 place settings. Costing around £250, it’s cheap, even compared with other slimline models. It doesn’t compromise on features, though, with a delay timer, anti-flood sensor, adjustable upper rack and seven wash programs.
You can find out how it cleaned grubby dishes streaked with baked-on egg, spinach and mince, by reading the full Baumatic BDIS410 review.
Miele G 4680 SCVi – £1,000
This slimline Miele fits into a 45cm kitchen unit and holds nine place settings. Slimline models usually have a capacity of between eight and 10 settings, so this machine is typical. It’s fully-integrated, meaning it’s designed to be hidden behind a cabinet door for a seamless fitted kitchen look.
We reveal whether this more expensive machine deals with dirty dishes seamlessly and rate how easy it is to use in the full Miele G 4680 SCVi review.
Should I buy a slimline dishwasher?
Slimline dishwashers are around 15cm thinner than the average full-sized model, making them perfect for those who are short on space. They typically wash between 80 and 100 items of crockery and cutlery, and we’ve found 14 machines that did such a good job of cleaning and drying that we’ve made them Best Buys.
One drawback of slimline machines is that they tend to be less energy and water efficient than full-sized models.
