Test winner of fully integrated dishwasher: Miele G 6770 SCVi


The Miele G 6770 SCVi achieved the winner in the dishwasher test from Stiftung Warentest (see issue 10/2019) with its good overall performance. While models from other manufacturers were able to keep up with her in the washing programs, she narrowly outdid the competition due to its better handling, noise rating and endurance test.

Miele can heat the water to a washing temperature of up to 75 degrees - according to the manufacturer, ideal for particularly greasy dishes. Normally you should get by with the automatic, or even better the eco program. This saves electricity. So that one can estimate the energy and water costs, the Miele display shows the expected consumption for the selected program. The upper basket is height adjustable, the dishwasher has its own drawer for cutlery. Smart detail: at the end of the washing program, the dishwasher door opens automatically. This allows the content to cool down faster.

Test winner for partially integrated dishwashers: Miele G 6730 SCi


No wonder that in the same test by the Stiftung Warentest, this machine came first in the semi-integrated models: the Miele G 6730 SCi is, so to speak, the sister model to the fully integrated dishwasher just presented. The display and controls are attached to the front. For details on functions and performance, see above.

Price-performance tip for built-in dishwashers: Bosch SMI67MS01E


It is also much cheaper without the washing performance having to suffer as a result: According to the Stiftung Warentest, the Bosch SMI67MS01E washes just as well as the test winners mentioned above. A look at the current market price is a relief: here you pay around 650 euros.

The Bosch machine offers three loading levels, with the top drawer for cutlery or small dishes such as espresso cups. The upper basket can be adjusted in height by up to 5 centimeters - according to the manufacturer, even when fully loaded. It doses the amount of water via a load sensor: With a lower load, it uses less water. A silence program reduces the operating noise, in return the cleaning time is extended. A lower rinsing pressure also ensures a similar washing result.

Test winner & price tip free-standing appliances: Bosch dishwasher


The Bosch SMS46MW03E is the test winner among the standing devices - however, this category was already described by the Stiftung Warentest in issue 07/2017. The more current devices are better. Therefore, we advise you to prefer the sister model of the price-performance tips mentioned above, the Bosch SMS67MW01E. This dishwasher offers the same advantages, but is designed as a free-standing appliance. It is therefore not integrated into a fitted kitchen, but simply set up and connected at the desired location. For more details on functions and performance, see the sister model above.

Dishwashers in the test: So it was tested

In the test, the Stiftung Warentest put various washing programs under the microscope: economy, automatic and short programs. How good the dishwashers are here when cleaning and drying, how long the washing process takes and how high the energy consumption was included in the overall grade with 15 to 20 percent per program. The testers also rated handling, safety, noise and endurance testing.

For the endurance test introduced in 2018, the Stiftung Warentest spared no expense or effort: three devices of each model had to perform 2,800 rinsing processes in the laboratory, which should correspond to a service life of 10 years.

Buying a dishwasher: you should also know that

Ikea, Neff, Samsung: Other dishwasher manufacturers

The Stiftung Warentest drew the conclusion from the long-term test: “High-quality machines last longer.” An Ikea dishwasher failed after two and a half years, but overall the Ikea Skinande model was still barely able to achieve a good overall result. In contrast, Samsung failed in the short program and the endurance test and ended up in last place. Good alternatives to the Miele and Bosch products presented above are offered by Neff (model available in various versions from Amazon).

Energy efficiency class is cost class

It's amazing how economical dishwashers are. According to a study, the machines already used 50 percent less water and 28 percent less energy than handwashers in 2011. Since then, however, the dishwashers have become even more economical. For the best possible effect, however, you have to use the longer-lasting, but more energy-efficient Eco program.

For buyers, a look at the energy efficiency class is worthwhile for financial reasons alone. If you look at the operating cost calculations by Stiftung Warentest, you save between 100 and 150 euros between the current devices with A +++ compared to A ++ after ten years of use. As a result, the cost difference is even greater for lower classified devices.

Buy a dishwasher: delivery and connection

Dishwashers are usually supplied by a shipping company. The cost differences are very different - so you should take a look at this when buying. For the exact delivery date, some are contacted by phone, at Amazon you choose the day and time slot when ordering.

The connection of the machine is included in the delivery costs at many dealers or you can book it. When buying, you should make sure that you not only have space for the dishwasher, but also a location near a water connection or sink. Pipes from wash basins make it possible (from the start or by connecting a Y-piece) to connect the hoses of a dishwasher for the water inlet and outlet.
