Smeg are a great brand and this dishwasher is just as good as there other appliances. The black colour definitely looks good as the traditional white can sometimes get boring. It is also slim giving it a much more modern look.
First and most important this is an A rated dishwasher across the whole board: Energy Rating, Wash Performance and Drying Performance. This is obviously encouraging and it definitely shows when you're using it.
In terms of space, this dishwasher has been very efficient. It has 10 place settings and there is room for a lot of things. It may not be suitable for big family though. There are also 9 programmes and five different wash temperatures, so that you can decide how everything washes. This control of options is excellent.
There is also a Manufacturer Warranty of one year so if anything breaks, you can send it right back and get a new one, or they will fix it. Mine hasn't broken and I doubt it will, however.
