How much do Miele dishwashers cost?

Miele dishwashers occupy the premium end of the market, and there's no getting away from the fact that these are pricey dishwashers. We've tested one Miele machine costing more than £1,200, although we have reviewed slimline models from £500.

Choosing the best Miele dishwasher

Full-sized dishwashers from Miele have capacity for either 13 or 14 place settings (12 place settings is the lowest capacity for a full-sized dishwasher). It also makes slimline dishwashers, which usually have the capacity for nine place settings. Miele dishwashers are usually white, but some are also available in black, brown or stainless steel.

As you'd expect given their higher-than-average price, Miele dishwashers tend to come with a range of helpful advanced features. Most will have a delay start, a display that indicates the time remaining until the wash cycle is finished, and auto-sensors that adapt the wash based on how dirty the dishes are. You can find out more about these features by heading to our how to buy the best dishwasher guide.
