New Best Buy dishwasher revealed by Which? testsNew dishwashers tested include Bosch & Ikea models
29 December 2009
Which? has put nine of the latest dishwashers to the test, with one model achieving our coveted Best Buy accolade.
We tested the dishwashers on a variety of factors including their cleaning ability, drying ability, water consumption and energy consumption.
New Best Buy
Which? dishwasher expert Matt Stevens said: 'The new Best Buy dishwasher scored highly for energy consumption and water consumption, making it a good choice if you're looking to cut your energy bills.'
The cheapest dishwasher we tested was the Matsui MS452, for £200. The most expensive was the £700 Bosch SBV50E10GB.
Compact, free-standing and built-in models were all tested.

Which? tests batches of dishwashers throughout the year in a lab, and all models are bought by us.
We also test dishwasher detergents - and we have Best Buys starting at just 9p per wash.
