Dishwasher test

Our latest dishwasher test results are in

The latest Which? dishwasher test results are in, including one of the most energy efficient models we've ever tested - and another that was a real energy guzzler.

One of the five dishwashers in our latest batch used an impressive 20% less energy on its main wash programme than the average we've seen in the Which? test labs. 

Another of the models, meanwhile, used 38% more energy than average when completing its equivalent washing cycle.

Dishwashers on test

Along with some good energy efficiency highlights, this round of Which? tests also uncovered a model that proved excellent at cleaning and drying dishes, and a machine that was one of the quickest dishwashers we've tested - taking just an hour and five minutes to do a normal wash.
