I have the Adora 55 S, bought new 4 years ago. So far, no complaints.

The difference between the N and the N-Gi is that the N-Gi has an internal height of 66.5 cm vs the standard 60 cm for the N.

The S has a few more wash cycles that the N doesn't have: Fondue/Raclette, Hygiene, and a timer if you want to have it start at some specific time.

Dreamcatcher, I take it from the above post that you do not have a dishwasher, but you would like to install one.
To install one you must take out one of the cabinets next to the water.
The cabinets are 766mm x 550mm.
You must check if the cabinet is standing on a plinth base or on plastic feet.
Plinth base = 766 x 550mm machine.
Plastic feet = 866 x 550mm machine.
You must check also if you can connect the water and waste pipes and if you have electric nearby.
Salut Zmma

It looks like the standard Swiss size of 55 will be too large for your space. The link that you provided of the 45 model is a good start but appears to be too tall for what you need. Check out Bosch, Electrolux, Siemens, Miele, etc.,.. websites and before too long, with the help of Google translate, you'll be able to figure out which dimensions are important for you.

If you are trying to go cheap, you may want to look at IKEA as well. No idea as to the quality of those or if they have something in your dimensions.

If it is too daunting for you, go to Fust or a Kitchen shop (every village appears to have one although you will pay for their service).

Re: dishwasher V zug model questions

Hello,

Thanks for your reply, I researched and it seems the breadth is 55 cms if i remove the planks of the cabinet, right now its a small cupboard. there is a space for the water outlet and also power which is below my sink. so i think 55 cms breadth and 55 cms is depth and i think 76.5 cms will work. i have a feeling the previous installation was of a ZUG Adora here before i moved in.

so if i buy from Fust do they include installation also or its extra?

Re: dishwasher V zug model questions

I was surprised to see such negative comments about Vzug appliances as I and various family and friends have never had any problems with the brand. Oldest experience: mother's flat. All new Vzug in 1970 and the washing machine and dryer needed major repairs after 25 years of constant use, so the Verwaltung decided to get new ones. While the Vzug people were there we decided to get her a new dishwasher as the older ones were noisier than the new ones. Nobody has had to have anything new since then. I keep hoping the cooker will break down as it is really old fashioned and I imagine it uses more electricity than modern ones. Personal experience: I have had Vzug for many years and never had to call the repair service. 4 years ago the kitchens were renewed in our building and everyone got Vzug. I haven't heard any complaints yet. However one of the inhabitants was someone who wanted Miele and paid extra to have an all Miele kitchen. I guess being from Germany he knew the brand better. I once heard his dishwasher and it didn't sound any quieter than mine. It seems to me that it's all down to luck.
P.S. Fust usually charge for installation and the cost varies on how much the need to do.

I also have a V-Zug, and yes it beeps too much. The first set of beeps says its done and fairly dry, and if you ignore them, it continues heating until the stuff is completely dry. So you can save some money by opening the door after the first set of beeps.
We also have V-Zug dischwasher and found out you can turn the beeping at the end of the cycle off. Check the manual.

All my kitchen and washroom appliances are vZug and I have had dreadful experiences with them all. They regularly break down and each call out for the vZug engineer carries a flat rate of 80 chf just to get him to the house.

The microwave died irretrievably after 6 years. Given that it cost 1200 Chf, I was appalled and astounded. I bought a cheap as chips one from a supermarket in the UK 10 years ago and my sister still has it and it is going strong.

The cooker never cooks evenly, despite having been investigated and poked and prodded by the vZug engineer and the dishwasher and tumble dryer break down approximately every year. Even the fridge has not been immune to breakdowns .. including having to replace the chiller box door THREE times!

I bought the house with the appliances already there and little did I know that even at CH prices, I would have gained money if I had just replaced the appliances (then only 4 years old) when I bought the house.

We are in the process of building a new house and I am going for a mixture of Siemens, Bosch and Miele for my "white goods". Never ever will I let a vZug machine anywhere near my house!

Edit: I started this edit thinking that I had told a lie .. the one thing to never have broken down is the cooker extractor fan .. but then had a quick look and realised this is Wesco brand!


I thought I must be going crazy or that there was something going on in the electrical circuits in our house, that every single of our Vzug appliances have died systematically. We built out house in 2011 and the builder suggested Vzug and I looked at the great reviews.
Luckily the rangehood and oven were under warranty. I got nervous, and when they sent me the option to extend the warranty, I took it for the induction cooktop, and sure enough that died and was replaced. Now I did not take buy extended warranty for the oven, as I thought it would be okay since it was only replaced under warranty not so long ago...it died last night, and I was not even using it - I rarely do oven cooking!! Now I'm thinking - should I change change to another brand of oven - and end up with multiple brands in my kitchen or will I replace with another Vzug?...

I will never ever put Vzug into a new kitchen again!!!
