Beko Dishwashers Review & Guide
From load capacity to energy and water ratings and other special features, there are plenty of things to consider when finding the best dishwasher for you. While shopping for a new kitchen appliance can be a bit of a challenge, Beko keeps things fairly simple by offering a number of freestanding and integrated options for you to choose from. Many of these models are standard 60cm appliances in either white or stainless steel.
A variety of Beko dishwashers share several features, including:
- Antibacterial Seal: Each dishwasher contains the Antibacterial Seal, which is claimed to prevent the growth of bacteria as a result of dirt build up over time
- Active Fan Drying: The models feature the Active Fan Drying System to increase air circulation, which is said to improve drying results and provide mild temperatures for dishes once finished
- Auto Tablet: detects the type of detergent needed to achieve what is described as ‘optimum cleaning and drying’
If you’re short on time and don’t want to leave the dishwasher running for hours, there are a couple of quick settings to help you clean in a hurry. Depending on how dirty your dishes are, the ‘Quick & Clean’ program is said to help you wash a full load in either 30 or 58 minutes. Dishwashers like the DFN16420X model allow you to delay the wash cycle for three, six, or nine hours. On digital models like the DIN38450 and DDN380450, you can alternatively choose to delay the process for up to 24 hours.
