A++ rating 

Enjoy clean crockery without the endless scrubbing, with the Essentials CDW45S18 Slimline Dishwasher. Rated A++ for energy efficiency, it's ideal for keeping kitchen equipment spotless without the hassle of mounting energy bills.

You won't need to wait until the dishwasher's full to begin a cycle either. The half load function is perfect at cleaning partial loads in a fraction of the time and with even less energy. So, you're able to clean the dishes straight after eating without wasting water and electricity. 

Six programs 

Whether you need to get rid of tough, caked-on stains, or you need your dishes clean and ready for your dinner guests in thirty minutes, the Essentials CDW45S18 has a program to suit you.

Try Super 50' for a powerful wash that'll have your crockery looking shiny and new in just fifty minutes, or Quick 30' to get it done even faster. Delicate takes care of fine china, crystal and other fragile crockery, using a lighter spray to leave your kitchen utensils in pristine condition. 

Adjustable water softener 

Hard water can have a detrimental effect on your dishwasher, causing rust over time and affecting performance. That's why the Essentials CDW45S18 Slimline Dishwasher features an automatic water softener. It removes salt and minerals from the water, preserving the life of your dishwasher and leaving plates sparkly clean, without any residue.

It's adjustable too, so you can tweak settings to perfectly suit the type of water in your area. 

Delay timer and salt indicator 

Whether you're going out, or you don't want your dishwasher to compete with the shower over hot water in the morning, the Essentials CDW45S18's delay timer helps the dishwasher work around your schedule. Choose from a 3, 6 or 9 hour delayed start, so that the dishes are fresh when you return home.

And with a salt and rinse aid indicator, you know exactly when you need to add a top-up to your dishwasher for the best cleaning results.

Order online and collect in store

Order & Collect ­­– The majority of our stores are now open and offering a collection service, allowing you to safely order online and collect from store contact-free.

Our stores with parking available can offer a Drive Thru collection experience using the parking bays clearly marked outside the store. Here’s how it works;
