A few weeks ago I published my initial review of my first impressions of the Siemens Avantgarde iSensoric washing machine, which I’ve been using for a month or so now. If you read that review, you’ll know that I was really pleased with the machine after its first few uses and enjoyed some of the great features.
Now I’ve really had chance to put the machine to good test I wanted to come back and give you some more thoughts on it and whether I think it’s a good buy.
Siemens Avantgarde iSensoric Review:
- Load size 9kg
- A+++ rating
- 5 year warranty
- Multi-touch LED display
- Intelligent i-Dos automatic dosing system
- Intelligent, durable and quiet iDrive motor
The features that have made the most difference to us as a family are firstly the intelligent dosing system. Basically you fill the compartments with washing liquid and fabric softener, then when you set up a wash just let it decide the levels for that programme and away to go. You don’t need to add it every time.
Secondly, it’s incredibly quiet! With a washing machine in the kitchen this is a big deal. I often forget that we are about to sit and eat at the breakfast bar, and in the past the old washing machine has practically deafened us with its spin cycle. No problem here though, you can hardly hear it.
Furthermore I love the cycles. On a normal machine I barely use any of the different cycles or programs but have found myself testing many of these. I guess that’s a sign that they’ve been developed practically, with an understanding of what’s required. The MyTime setting is great for a very quick wash – you know that one where your teenage daughter suggests she needs to wash her favourite jacket just hours before you leave for holiday! I popped it on a 20 minute wash, and the spin is so good it was hardly damp when it came out.
As you can see below, the digital display panel is clear and bright. It’s angled downwards too so you don’t get lots of reflective light on it, and no need to bend down to get a clear view. I’ve taught the girls how to use the panel, and to be honest, as it’s digital and touch screen, they picked it up in seconds. A real bonus!
There are many features that draw me to love this machine. Sometimes it’s the little touches that can make all the difference though, and this one below has to be one of my favourites. Once the cycle is complete, a beep sounds several times to alert you. When you then open the door, a light comes on inside the drum to help you locate all the wet washing. Brilliant. Not so much of an issue on the load below with bright bedding but so handy when you’re washing all the black socks! How many times have you left one or two behind only to them put in a load of whites?
So would I recommend this machine. YES I really would. In the medium price bracket, it’s certainly not the cheapest on the market, but you really do get what you pay for. The more I’ve used it, the more I’ve come to love it. It’s quick and efficient to use, does a fabulous wash and an incredible spin. Generally our clothes look brighter and fresher, whites are staying whiter and drying time is lower.
As I mentioned in the previous post I’d probably prefer something that looked a bit cooler, but honestly that’s not the end of the world and the design is ergonomic and well thought through. So I’m very much taken with my Siemens Avantgarde iSensoric washing machine and happy to recommend it.
