Hotpoint FDUD44110P dishwasher

The newly-tested Hotpoint FDUD44110P

Our latest round of dishwasher testing has uncovered two new Best Buy dishwashers that will leave your dishes looking polished without any elbow grease.

We’ve tested six of the latest dishwasher models, including three from Miele. Miele says its dishwasher trio offers ‘perfect’ drying courtesy of its SensorDry feature, which automatically measures the size of the load and the temperature, and then selects the drying settings accordingly.

Meanwhile, Hotpoint calls its FDUD441100P one of the quietest dishwashers on the market. Both Hotpoint and Miele have made bold claims, so we put their appliances through our rigorous tests to see if they live up to the hype. For our full test results and verdict, check out our dishwasher reviews.

New dishwasher reviews

As newer dishwashers have started to perform better and better in our tests, we decided it was time to raise the bar so only the very best dishwashers hit our Best Buy gold standard. We’ve made a few changes to the way we assess dishwashers to better reflect your needs – it’s now a little bit more difficult for dishwashers to earn five stars in our key tests for cleaning and drying. 

We’ve also lifted the test score thresholds required for dishwashers to be considered Best Buys. This ensures we only recommend the top products we’ve tested. If you want to see which dishwashers have done well enough to hit the benchmark, click to see our full list of Best Buy dishwashers.
