    I'm told that if you fill up the salt compartment with laundry washing powder, the effect isn't great either. That one's not personal experience, but we have just given up getting the kids to load the dishwasher. Nasty grinding noise, many hours disassembling dishwasher later (don't think they were intended to be opened very often) and found child's tooth inside main pump.

    I used to work in a canteen and had one of those big steel cube dishwashers that did the job in minutes. The pans were too big though so I had to spend 3-4 hours a day scrubbing them by hand with wire wool and industrial cleaner that would take anything off! Spoils me a bit, I find the domestic sponge and fairy liquid to be terrible by comparison.

    She is the only person who does......

    I have to agree with you there. Before we brought our dishwasher (a slim line model) we worked out that we would have to fill the sink at least twice a day (about 50 liters) and take into account the gas it would cost to do that. With a dishwasher we only have to run it once a day (sometimes every other day) and it uses far less water as well. Not to mention the time it saves

    A random tooth or do you own the compatable child?

    Also, how the bejeezus did it get in there?

    My child - tooth came out during dinner, plate didn't get scraped (education required - although maybe he's out-smarting me. He hasn't been asked to load dishwasher since...). No idea how it made it past the filters though. Took me a long time to take it apart - but when I got it back together I was very pleasantly surprised to have no bits left over!

    We have a Beko (not that model) and it's been brilliant. Much better than our old Indesit and far quieter too.

    How do you know when a teacher has been using a dishwasher? It's clogged with paper plates....

    Not so compatable anymore, it would seem. Hopefully Tooth v2.0 will be rolled out soon. If not, third-party equivilents may need to be considered..

    We don't get that problem. They don't know how to load a dishwasher.

    Ours do. They just can't turn it on or take things out.

    I agree
    Beko is fine but it won't last as long.
