I'm managing 95 apartments with single dish drawers, they are now coming up 6 years old and have been used by many different nationalities and surprisingly I would only have a serviceman come out once every 5 months to attend to one.
I had one of the first dish drawers in a place I built about 10 years ago. Absolutely fantastic!
I have purchased a 2nd hand LG for a place that we are doing up at present. Whilst its rented the LG will remain but as soon as we move in we will change it for a double dish drawer. I bought the LG as 2 servicemen recommended them as dishwashers they hardly had to service.
When I worked as a kitchen designer a number of clients wouldn't even contemplate a dd as they had been put off them by what they had heard from other people. But my experience with them is all good.
We recently remodeled our kitchen and were sold a Parmco oven and electric hob. Biggest pieces of junk I've ever bought. The user manuals were obviously not written by someone who understands English, and very few of the symbols even match those on the oven. The rest of the manuals are almost painful to read. The appliances themselves are cheap and featureless. And you can forget about customer service. When I repeatedly called to complain, all I ever got was "someone will get back to you." No one ever did. I'd be very leary of buying anything made by Parmco.
Ive got parmco rangehood, oven, and hobs in my own home and a year on they are still going well with no issues. I have put them into numerous houses both rentals and specs and have not heard anything bad except for a broken hinge on a oven door about 3 years ago.
Sounds odd, they come with a 5 year warranty if purchased through an approved supplier. I put an oven and a hob into a rental/will oneday live there house in December and am very impressed with how durable they feel.

I bought an oven and gas hob from Parmco 2 years ago for my own use not for a rental property. The oven has broken down so many times I've lost count. They did at least fix it each time. Now the markings on the hob (decals) that tell you which element you're turning on and how to increase/decrease the heat have worn off. Parmco 'help' department very unhelpful, lost my e-mails, didn't reply for ages etc. Eventually they offered to replace the part but I have to pay for installation. They cannot guarantee the new part will last more than 2 years. They refuse to cover it under their 5 year warranty saying the decals are cosmetic only and therefore not covered by warranty.

I recommend buy another brand.
I have a range hood from Parmco being doings its job for 3 years or so no problems
We have Parmco oven and rangehood here at home, for 9 years, no probs.

They simply replaced the fan element with a larger one.
I've since sold the oven for $500.
Have Parmco rangehood in one of my rentals - it was a pain to install and is very loud. I wouldn't be surprised if it will last long just because it's too loud to be used frequently. Won't buy it again.
