In the year or so that we have had this machine now it has been a bit of a mixed bag. The machine itself is very easy to use; there are 4 different wash settings including an Eco wash which is handy if you just want to rinse a load of glasses. If, as we do, you only use the machine for cleaning very dirty pots & pans there is only really one setting for you which is the heavy wash which takes approximately 2 hours.
An annoying feature of this machine relates to the top shelf which is designed for glasses; this is divided into 4 rows. Because of the layout of these rows only 1 of them is big enough for large pint glasses. If you try putting large glasses in the other rows the glasses catch on the runner seals & topple over. For us this only means 1 of the rows is regularly used for actual glass washing.
I'm not sure how it compares to other washers, but to me this machine does seem to get through Salts and Rinse-Aid quite quickly.
We have also had warranty issues with this product; after a couple of months of use washer starting making a horrible noise, although the actual washing capabilities were not affected. As we had registered the product for the warranty with Hotpoint, we called them out but they said they were not willing to do anything about it as we had damaged it ourselves, which was not the case. Warranties are always something I consider when purchasing a product such as this, so this issue is worth bearing in mind.
Having had this dishwasher for a few weeks now we are very happy with it. The Hotpoint Ariston LFT114 is a good dishwasher with many different features.
The Hotpoint-Ariston LFT114 comes with an anti-flood device which is money well spent. No one wants to find their kitchen covered in water and this was an important factor in our decision. It has a fantastic A rated Drying AND energy performance rating. It also has an A grade was performance so you can buy with confidence. It has 12 place settings, 4 different programmes and 3 wash temperatures. This allows for so many different wash types giving a huge level of flexibility. It has a 16litre water capacity and the LED control panel just makes it look cool.
The Hotpoint Ariston LFT114 has a good noice level as it is surpressed by Sound Insulation. This means the noice output is just 51Db.
Dimensions : H820 x W595 x D570mm
