    Don't buy F & P

    •  

      I'm interested to know why?

        I've heard more issues with them.

        I think Bosch is a good brand.

          Had issues with Bosch. F & P pretty reliable for me

      •  

        The build quality is simply not there after it was no longer made in NZ

        •  

          Oh, I didn't realise that they were no longer NZ manufactured!

          Thanks for the heads up.

    Two are owned by Chinese companies.

    One is owned by a german company.

    That said, been happy with the Asko unit I've used before. Washes really well.

    •  

      Just that product review and canstar say Bosch is the best but there is not much on Asko

      •  

        Asko is hard to say. 'old' asko products had been amazing and lived forever. Hard to say if the new stuff is just as good. But the one I've had access to, washes well, which is the main thing! It was 50/50 between Asko and Bosch. Asko won out for the looks.

        Bosch can be hit and miss, read the reviews for the model you're looking at I guess.

    Bought a house had a 17yo bosch. It died/could have been fixed but was still 17 yo. 17 is pretty good in my books (im sure others are older and anything over 10-15 is impressive)

    Bought another bosch and love it. Quiet, cleans well and the cutlery draw is well worth it as the bottom can be full of pots.

    Just invest in a German made one as the Chinese ones have plastic inners.

      I got 20 years out of our Dishlex, only got rid of it due to leaks from the seals (which is to be expected after 20 years).

      Replaced with a Smeg which has been working great.

    •  

      which model did you get?

  • +3 votes

    Bosch.

    Old asko used to be good but not anymore. We bought a house built in 1983 with an Asko dishwasher from back then and it worked beautifully! Upgraded to new Asko coz old was was mission brown :p and the new one was useless. Sold it on Gumtree a week later and installed a Siemens and haven't looked back since.

    Always use Siemens or neff appliances.. or Bosch. Exceptional quality. I think they are all the same German parent company.

    •  

      That's true. Siemens tends to have longer warranty too so Siemens may well end up a similar price to Bosch with extended warranty. Eg our Siemens ovens had 5 year when equivalent Bosh models had 3. All good though.

    Bosch. We bought a 2nd hand german made Bosch 9 years ago (would have been 5 years old at the time) and besides a rubber band getting stuck in the pump (which is an easy fix and not the fault of the machine) we've had no problems with it. I guess the cutlery tray is looking a bit tired if I wanted to be picky.

    Consider Miele, i think they have 20 year warranty?

      Its not a 20 year warranty - just marketing saying it could last upto 20 years. The warranty is standard 2 years, sometimes up to 10 years through promos.

    We've had an ASKO dishwasher for almost 6 years. Going well - had no issues with it. Before that we had a Bosch, which was also (from memory) a good machine (had to leave it with the house).

    We've been through two ASKO washers. First was repaired under warranty, and had another two (paid) repairs only die again later (uneconomical to repair). Second (larger) machine was repaired twice and died under warranty - got a refund (after some hassle…). After all that, we replaced it with an AEG which has been going well (so far) - and anecdotally I think it's a better machine.

    Although not on your list, if you have some budget flexibility, I suggest looking into Miele. Yes, they can be expensive, but Miele dishwashers are so quiet. I have owned one before and have experienced this firsthand. Still German made, I believe.

    I'd like to throw in Siemens into the ring. They are produced in the same factory as Bosch in Germany, but come with a 5 year warranty. Prices can be quite cheap if you keep a sharp eye out for sales.

    edit: As an alternate, you can consider beko - I think they also have 5 year warranty but are far cheaper.

    I've had an Asko ~$1500 worth, never really cleaned the dishes properly and it broke down after 5 years.
    Moved to Euromaid ~$350 from Harvey Norman thinking if i get 3 years out of it i've done well, it's been 7 years and still going strong, cleans dishes better than any other dishwasher i've had.

    Just shows you don't necessarily get what you paid for, having said that i have heard horror stories about Fisher and Paykel, my go to would be Bosch for reliability

  •  

    My Bosch is awesome, does the job, never has a problem, and the noise is minimal

  •  

    We've used an Asko and a Bosch. The Bosch is far superior in terms of the programs and cleanliness of the dishes.

  •  

    Asko

  •  

    We have a F & P dishdrawer, has been work fairly solidly, 4 years old so far. But do give it a good clean out every 2-3 months.
    Recently, just had one of the drawers start making a funny noise, so will get that investigated.
    In terms of use, we fill one draw every 2 days (small family of 3).

      We've got one of those in the office. Not really designed for large plates

  •  

    Bosch made in Germany is the best!!!

  •  

    Are Bosch ovens any good? What other oven brands that have a good reputation? I’m hoping to spend less than $1000 but am a little flexible.

      They're excellent.

  •  

    Personally I’d choose a Bosch. We’ve got a Westinghouse, which I believe is still owned by Electrolux, but I mean ultimately, the company is still Westinghouse, with Westinghouse designers, engineers, and techs it’s majority owned by a larger company.

    I’d recommend Bosch, because everybody I know who has a Bosch washing machine, or a dishwasher has had no issues and they’re still going.

    There’s a premium for Bosch, but I think they’re worth it.

    We have a Bosch dishwasher (about 5 years old now), and we really like it.
    Had one issue a year ago with a blocked output pipe, but that was my wifes fault.
    Easily rectified in the end by removing the blockage.

    Just started getting an E15 error now though….looks like there is a water leak under the machine :-(
