I am looking for a full-size one, good green rating. I can't do the 'Which?' guide free thing, but does anyone else have access to it?
Or has anyone seen any store on online bargains?
Any recommended brands?
Would really like to get one this weekend, so any advice welcome smile

How I wish I had more interesting things to talk about on a friday night....

We've got an Indesit fitted as part of our new kitchen and I really like it.

Its A rating is good (tries to sound as if she knows what she's talking about) but the main thing for me was noise..and its quiet.

Loads of people I've spoken to have raved about Bosch so we went and bought a slimline one (space issues) and haven't regretted it since. Its very quiet too..well, I'm deaf but I have been reliably informed its quiet grin

this Bosch one - high score, low price - am about to buy one myself (mine is on its last legs)

That's £250, do you want to spend more?

I've got a freestanding Bosch one, which I'm very happy with - they are reliable and quiet, and I think fairly green.

NappiesLaGore Fri 10-Oct-08 21:47:41

NOT smeg - they are overpriced shit.

princesspeahead Fri 10-Oct-08 21:48:04

bosch is the sensible choice
miele if you want something identical to bosch but feel like spending more money for the hell of it grin

indesit are cheap and crap. neff are fine - interchangeable with bosch (in fact used to be made in the same factory, probably still are!)

arrgggh - why can't I get a decent semi-integrated one at a price like that Bosch.

Blimey, that was quick smile!

Bosch - 3 votes

Anymore smile?

We have fitted a new Bosch semi-integrated today and it is much louder than our old Neff.

ive got a bosch. had it about 4 years. I think it fab. My mothers blew up though!

countingto10 Fri 10-Oct-08 22:09:36

I have had a Bosch for the last 7 yrs, it is very quiet and reliable (probably pack up now hmm). I had an Indesit for a year, had an internal leak and fused the electrics !.

My mother swears by Miele appliances.

Had to say it but I think German is the way to go.

We've just bought a Bosch Classix (as linked by Wendy - we got ours from the coop too), which for the price is the current Which Best Buy.

BlackEyedDog Fri 10-Oct-08 22:14:34

We got a fairly expensive bosch but I didn't think it was amazing - always left a cloudy film of dried soap on the glasses

flogged it and we now have a cheapy basic hotpoint and its fab, much better

and a vote from my mother and a woman I used to work with

My old Bosch dishwasher is at least 10 years old & has had one fault in all that time, otherwise has been perfect - it was the dead basic model when I got it, equiv to the one I linked to (& have just ordered in fact smile). It has started making horrendous noises while washing, but still performs fine grin

My washer is also a Bosch - current one is only about 2 years old (cost £239 although that was a website typo for £293 but still, not a £500+ model) and previous Bosch machine was fine for about 8 years. Also have Bosch fridge & freezer - they work fine, but freezer drawers are now flimsy plastic which fractures hmm (ancient Bosch freezer c 1983 had wire basket drawers, much better)

Anyway I like Bosch & have never been let down so far - unlike top-of-range Hoover dishwasher which flooded kitchen regularly for 2 years until I scrapped it angry

ListersSister Fri 10-Oct-08 22:35:00

So, Bosch seem to be most popular hmm?
Anyone able to tell me what Which say about it? smile

WendyWeber Fri 10-Oct-08 22:37:53

Yes - Which pretty keen on Bosch.

They like Miele too, but your average Miele is twice the price of your average Bosch & alhtough they do generally last longer you get left behind by technology.

slackrunner Fri 10-Oct-08 22:39:44

DH read the Which Report <geek emoticon>, so can't access all of the details. I think the only downside was that the wash time was long....hardly a problem IMO.

Thank you so much ladies - very kind to give your time on something so mundane!

Should I start a controversial AIBU thead just to compensate?

Complete aside - did anyone see Robert Peston on the news at ten? He looked like he had dressed in the dark - most distracting! smile

slackrunner Fri 10-Oct-08 22:47:11

nope didn't see him - did he have more doom and gloom to spread ?
