  • An absolute fi-Asko!

    May 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None whatsoever!
    Cons: That's exactly the word: this machine is one big "con" job!

    Summary: Remember the old "Green Acres" show? Lisa Douglas (Eva Gabor) washed her dishes by simply stuffing them into the dishwasher and mashing down the lid. Whatever didn't fit, she just threw out the kitchen window! Well, they'd be at least as clean ... read more

  • Cleans well but reliability an issue

    Oct 3, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans well, reasonably quiet, many features.
    Cons: Poor design for reliability, very expensive repairs. High Cost to own.

    Summary: I inherited this dishwasher from the previous homeowner so I had little input in the choice, but I've had a lot of input in the repairs. My overall opinion is that ASKO tried to build in a lot of features but didn't concentrate enough on ... read more

    Pros: Aesthetically pretty, but useless.
    Cons: Too many to list!!! Don't buy an ASKO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Summary: We've had our Asko 1805 Dishwasher for 6-1/2 painful years. It looked pretty, stainless steel that matched our other appliances but it never really cleaned well, even though we rinse & pre-wash dishes in HOT water prior to putting them in the ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: cleans great, relatively quiet - when it works!!! (hint: almost never...)
    Cons: totally unreliable! buy only if you are in love with the technician!!!

    Summary: Three and a half years ago we bought a new, digital, ASKO dishwasher (in Israel they are called TELSA, for some odd reason, maybe to hide the unreliable origin). I chose this machine after carefully reading its technical specifications (being ... read more

    Pros: Very good, excellent loading, and super easy to use

    Pros: QUIET, solid and reliable
    Cons: expensive

    Summary: I bought an Asko dishwasher 2 years ago when we moved into a house with a kitchen the size of a small closet. The dining room is separated by a little table, so it is crucial that the dishwasher is quiet. This Asko dishwasher is so quiet that I usually ... read more

  • In Praise Of The Asko 1805 Dishwasher

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The Asko 1850 really cleans, is made of durable stainless steel is quiet and easy to use.
    Cons: I have to rinse the baby bottle nipples after running them through a cycle because I noticed some residue trapped in the nipples.

    Summary: The Asko 1805 dishwasher cleans baked on sticky barbecue sauce from the broiler pan without scrubbing or soaking. I’m not kidding, I tried it and it works. It cleans burned eggs off the frying pan and stuck macaroni and cheese from the bottom of the ... read more

    Cons: Repeat after me “Avoid Asko Assiduously”!

    Summary: Not only were we dumb enough to fall for the Asko Dishwasher- we got their Cloths Washer and Dryer at the same time. 3 times the misery!! We got tired of calling and paying big $$$ for the brain surgeons to come out and service the cloths washing ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking, very quiet. Holds a lot of dishes.
    Cons: Expensive to repair. Cleaning filter is a dirty and disgusting job.

    Summary: We've had our Asko 1805 for ten years. It has some serious design flaws that one would hope have been corrected in the newer models. The plastic membrane over the hidden controls is subject to cracking. One thing leads to another and soon you have ... read more

    Pros: Super Quiet
    Cons: Too many to list
