Tried And Tested; Dishwashers.
MieleG1230SC(pounds 530):A freestanding dishwasher from a firm which maybe pricer than some of its competitors but is a byword for excellence, according to Which?
It produced unblemished results for cleaning, drying and left dishes smear free.
AEG Favorit 40660 (pounds 299 from John Lewis.): The strongest challenger to Miele and matched its results for washing and drying.
It also boasts quicker wash times and a cheaper price tag. It's slightly noisier and less energy efficient though.
You can't alter the height of the upper basket either.
Beko DWD86550X (pounds 270): A bargain and excellent at cleaning, although Which? noticed a few smears and water drops left behind on its main program. Which? hasn't had chance to test enough Beko models to give a verdict on their reliability either.
Whirlpool ADP 66830/5 WH (pounds 350): An impressive main program but this brand's dishwashers tend to need more repairs than average, according to Which?.
