If a machine has an “auto” cycle, we select it over the “normal” cycle. We do this because an auto or sensing cycle should be designed to give optimum results for every wash. We put each dishwasher through its paces at least twice and the scores are averaged.
To really test a dishwasher’s ability to clean, we carefully dirty each test load with a range of foods and let them dry for 15 to 18 hours. And we’ve added baked-on porridge to the foods we’ve always used (such as baby cereal, spinach, egg yolk, tomato juice, tea and butter). Each of the foods plays a crucial part in assessing how the dishwasher performs and they’re there to test things like filtration, spray-arm effectiveness, rinsing and automatic sensors.
See “About our test” for more information.

It has a light inside. Washes OK, most of the time.
Starting at the top, the cutlery tray is not convenient, you have to keep pulling it out & pushing it in. Standard cutlery baskets are much more convenient. The drying performance is abysmal. No item emerges dry, from cutlery to glasses to crockery to plastics. The manufacturer suggested opening the door when the cycle finishes; that's fine if you know when that is, and it made no difference anyway. Also it didn't seem hot enough. The installer said everything was by the book, he couldn't help. It's gone now.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.

While it is not this exact model we have never had any problems with it. I purchased because it was NZ made.
The only drying 'problem' is on plastics
Yes, I recommend this product.
