Energy saver dishwasher costs just £30 a year to run

Our latest dishwasher reviews have discovered an energy saving Best Buy that not only leaves grimy dishes clean and dry, but costs just £30 a year to run.

We often find models that are cheap to run, but it’s rare to find one that’s also top class when it comes to cleaning. Our new Best Buy is just one of three top performers from our latest dishwasher reviews, which includes models from AEG, Belling, Bosch and Hotpoint.
