Plumped for this dishwasher because of the cutlery tray, air dry technology and the 'satellite' spray arm system.
I like the look and design of the machine and the cutlery tray is well thought out. The adjustable top basket is good.
I dislike the lightweight feel of the machine and the lower basket is so light that it tips over if you unload the front of it first: the weight of large plates at the back of the basket makes it unbalanced.
The machine I received also came with a badly fitted door, which became apparent after a few days of use, when one morning it couldn't be opened at all. After a considerable effort and debate with the retailer & AEG it is hopefully being collected for a full refund. Disappointed with AEG service and lack of viable alternative solution to either waiting for a repair or a replacement who-knows-when as this model is out of stock and no known timescale for replenishment from the factory. Unlikely to purchase another AEG product in the future.
