You have a posh dishwasher where you have to take the trouble to put each piece of cutlery in individually. I'm glad mine doesn't. I just put a handful of 10 of any cutlery item into each section of the basket.
Some "chinese english" instructions for an automatic light switch, needless to say I did not attempt to follow them during the installation....
The surface design is facility, comely but not losing generosity, it will not have accidented feeling after installation.
Mine is a Beko too, 1-2 years old. It's got the same basket I've seen in everybody's dishwasher - about a foot long and 6 inches wide divided into 8 compartments. You shove about 10 bits of cutlery into each. Do you really have to place every individual piece of cutlery in one by one? You'd be quicker washing them by hand!
Odd, I've found cutlery is always clean (sharp end up), if anything is ever left dirty it's bowls with dried on food. But if I set it to the hottest wash and use 2 dishwasher tablets, and the maximum setting for rinse aid, it's rare anything comes out dirty. And quite often it's only used every 4 days, so everything is well dried on.

Not everybody's though. ;-)
Yes, but it's very quick to do (even when I do it).
Not if you include filling the bowl with water, washing, rinsing and
However, having all the 'working ends' completely exposed and held
apart guarantees a much better wash than potentially having them all

Did you miss the 'but' in my comment above? I wasn't saying it was
quicker than just chucking them in willy-nilly, I just said (in
comparison with the general time it take to load and unload a
dishwasher) it's still pretty quick.
If you only have the bunchy basket thing than I'm guessing you don't
really have the choice.

Like I said, it's got to be taken in context. It wasn't a measurement
of time per-se, it was the suggestion that it didn't take very long.
Yes. You *can* use the draining board to 'dry' (rather than just
drain) stuff, but it's often quicker to dry it by hand. Like it is
generally quicker to dry stuff in a TG than to just peg it on a line
oustside or on a horse inside, especially if you are in a hurry and
consider all conditions.
Correct? *IF you only have the bunchy basket thing* you don't have the
choice of having them held individually?

I have the cutlery basket on one of the kitchen benches
and put the cutlery from the current meal in the basket
after each meal. So there is no separate loading of the
basket before starting the dishwasher.
No, ours isn't like that. It's around the same size overall as yours,
but has two top pieces which make a grid into which you drop the
cutlery. It was a little awkward at first since previous dishwashers
were like yours but it's not so bad now and actually quiten handy when
getting them out.
You've just reminded me, I think mine actually had a flip down piece like that, which I removed and discarded as it didn't make any sense. Easiest thing in the world to use it without, you place 10 items of cutlery in each section, business end up. Then take them all out together after the wash. Nothing could be simpler.

Yes. Simpler would be to just chuck them all in one basket but every
stage between that and having them held individually will give you the
cleaning range from 'lucky dip' to 'perfect every time'. (because a
fork isn't sitting inside a spoon etc).

That approach does keep the individual items more
separate so in theory should see less food remain
between the cutlery items at the end of the wash.
And with a removable lid you can use it whichever way you
like if you find that you hardly ever get any food not removed
when you don't bother with the lids.
Trouble is that the grid holes are not circular, so you have to watch
that when you pull something out, it doesn't catch and pull the lid
off. Also the lid (top piece) is getting very ratty now after 5 years
of me having no patience with it.
Thass why when we get the kitchen redone, we're gonna get a new DW with
a top tray for the cutlery.
