New Best Buy dishwashers uncovered by Which?Eight new models tested – find out which is best

18 September 2015

Bosch SMS69M12GB

The Bosch SMS69M12GB has flashy features, but can it get the basics right?

Our latest round of dishwasher tests put eight new dishwashers under the microscope in the Which? lab - with two models earning our Best Buy recommendation. 

But proving that not all dishwashers were created equal, another model we assessed from a well-known brand was so abysmal that it earned just one star for cleaning power.

You can avoid ending up with a dud by reading our full dishwasher reviews before you buy.

Best dishwashers from Bosch

Our latest reviews include three models from Bosch, one of which earned our Best Buy recommendation. If you're particularly interested in models from this brand, check our Bosch dishwasher reviews.

Two of the models tested are full-size freestanding dishwashers - the Bosch SMS50C12UK is a relatively simple model with height-adjustable baskets, a child lock and delay timer, while the SMS69M12GB also has sensors that measure how dirty your dishes are so the machine can adjust its wash accordingly and a door that opens automatically at the end of the cycle to help with drying. 

The SPS40E22GB is a slimline dishwasher designed for kitchens that are short on space but it can still take care of 90 items in each cycle.

Only one of these dishwashers earned five stars for both its cleaning and drying – check our Best Buy dishwashers page to find out which.

The most reliable dishwashers

The best dishwashers leave dishes perfectly clean and dry without using too much energy or water, but you also want a model that will last for longer without developing any faults. Each yeah we ask thousands of Which? members about their experiences with their dishwasher so we can tell you which brands are most reliable. 

Several brands earned high ratings, but three earned less satisfactory reliability scores. To ensure you choose a model that’s likely to last longer, find out which are the most reliable dishwasher brands.
