Find out which newly-tested dishwasher will leave your plates and cutlery sparkling

A newly tested dishwasher has stormed our tests, earning an unprecedented overall test score of 85%. In total six dishwashers from popular brands Electrolux, Miele and Whirlpool went head-to-head in our latest round of testing, with three doing so well we've named them Best Buys.

The new Best Buys join 22 existing Best Buys we've uncovered from more than 100 models tested.

New dishwashers reviewed

Our dishwasher group test included models from both ends of the price scale. The affordable Bush DWFS146SS, £190, is designed to be incorporated in a built-in kitchen and has handy features that include a child lock and electronic display. At £1035, the Miele G6260SCVi (also fully integrated) is five times more expensive. As you’d expect, this premium model has flashy features including an ‘AutoOpen’ door, which allows steam to escape (to help with drying). Are you on the market for a Miele model?

But which model does the basics the best? We tested how well each dishwasher cleans and dries, and whether it will leave your cutlery and crockery covered with unsightly watermarks. Noise, ease of use and energy efficiency all feed into our test scores too – only models that are strong all-rounders earn our Best Buy recommendation. The test scores in our latest group test range from a paltry 47% all the way up to the extraordinary 85% earned by the new top scorer.
