I use (like lots of others here) the Lidl one which is perfectly adequate for the occasional bracelet/case clean. I don't use any special cleaner, just hand hot water and a few drops of washing up liquid.

Obviously, for more frequent or professional use, a more robust machine would be required.

I have the silvercrest one, and a more professional, larger, heated one.  But most of the time the silvercrest one gets used, as it does the job, and is smaller and quicker.  Warm water and a squirt of fairy.

Gonna hijack this thread slightly.... Are the options for ultrasonic cleaners on Amazon worth it just for movements and parts as a hobbyist?

you shouldn't put a complete movement in them, but for parts it is fine.  You might need a very fine mesh basket to keep them safe though

Cheers. I might have worded it better. Thank you for the answer.

Think it looks awesome, but doubt my wife will let me leave it out on the dining room table 

 

looks like something from the film Journey to the centre of the earth :jawdrop1:

See..  THIS is what happens when you don't give free condoms to your hoover.
