The AEG freestanding dishwasher is one of the more expensive models on the market, so it can be expected to hold up well compared to other products. The capacity of 13 place settings is also suitable for larger families; most dishwashers offer a smaller volume. In terms of energy, this dishwasher belongs to the more economical models; it is classified in the better class D and uses 1 kWh for one washing cycle. Its water consumption of 11 l per cycle just exceeded the then-average of 10 l. The total costs thus more or less correspond to the then average, as with several competing dishwashers, with this one you will also see prices of around £0.20 per cycle.
This dishwasher does not stand out regarding washing or drying efficiency, but that is mainly because practically all modern dishwashers are equal in these respects; in short, they wash and dry more or less at the same level. With a noise level of 44 dB, it ranked among the quieter models.
The AEG dishwasher offers ten programs, which is above the standard, but can be expected to a certain extent for a model of this price category. Of course, the most popular (and often the only) washing programs that users use must be included. Specifically, it is a short, eco-program and automatic program. The fast program saves you time but tends to be demanding on consumption. The Eco program, on the other hand, is economical, but it can drag on quite a bit. The automatic program tries to optimise consumption and time based on the number of dishes loaded.
In addition, this model also has a particular program for washing the glass. On the contrary, it lacks a program for cleaning the dishwasher, which is already very common nowadays, even in cheaper models.
