It seems a simple concept to grasp. We have a dishwasher. We have dirty dishes. So where to the dirty dishes go? IN THE DISHWASHER. Not on the kitchen worktop above the dishwasher. Not on the floor next to the sofa. Not in the sink. IN THE DISHWASHER.
Sadly, it’s a task that Boy About Tech just can’t seem to get his head around. Perhaps he believes in some sort of dishwasher fairy. Or perhaps he can’t find room. Unlikely, and he’d certainly have no excuses for not squeezing his used cereal bowl into Candy’s new cavernous cleaner.
The CDIM3653 Maxi Plate can hold 15 place settings – three more than most standard 60cm-wide models. That’s the equivalent of 15 dinner plates, 15 side plates, 15 bowls, 15 knives, forks, spoons and teaspoons, 15 glass tumblers, and 15 tea cups and saucers, as well as a couple of serving dishes. What’s more, eight larger dinner plates of up to 34.5cm in diameter will sit happily in the bottom basket, as you can see. It’s fully integrated, and costs £399.
Or how about this model from CDA?
The WC600 is another 60cm integrated design capable of holding 15 place settings. Available for around £389, it sprays water at three different levels for more efficient cleaning, and has a separate cutlery tray at the top, rather than a cutlery holder in the bottom basket.
An LED interior light makes loading and unloading easier, and you can set the energy and water-saving half load wash to target either the upper or lower baskets individually, depending on where you’ve stacked your dishes. That’s a lot of clever ideas for your money.
