Dishwashers of previous years are better

In the test of the issue 11/2018 no dishwasher could really convince the experts: out of 19 tested products, not one received the grade “good”. Among the best dishwashers tested in 2018, the Bosch SMV45IX01E rated “satisfactory” (2.6), followed by Beko DIN28410 with the overall grade “satisfactory” (2.7) and the Constructa CG5A04V9 with a smooth 3, 0 satisfactory section.

Stiftung Warentest awarded the best ratings for built-in dishwashers to the devices from Miele and Siemens: The models Miele G 6770 SCVi (fully integrated) and Miele G 6730 SCi (partially integrated), both with the overall rating, performed well by Miele (2 , 2) the ranking of built-in appliances – but these models are also quite expensive. Siemens offers two models, which have also been awarded a grade of 2.2 Good – but cost almost half.

The Siemens SN558S06TE (partially integrated) and Siemens SN658X06TE (fully integrated) are identical in construction and particularly quiet. However, the best test results are achieved by the test winner devices from 2016.

Shop recommendation for Siemens SN658X06TE

The dishwasher Miele G 6260 SCVi, which was tested in 2016, is unsurpassed number one (rating 1.9). He convinces with all washing programs and works very quietly and efficiently. The electricity and water consumption is very low – but the dishwasher gets the dishes clean. With around 1,300 euros, the test winner is not a bargain. The partially integrated variant Miele G 6200 SCi also scores well in the test (1.9).

Stiftung Warentest also tested the cheap and almost as good alternative in 2016: The dishwasher Siemens SN66P097EU (Update 07/2019: unfortunately no longer available online) convinces with the grade 2.0, but costs less than 600 euros. He is a little quieter, but does not quite come up to the good values ​​in the washing programs of the test winner. He has a good price-performance ratio.

Dishwasher types: fully integrated, semi-integrated or freestanding?

When buying a dishwasher, the design is crucial. Traders and manufacturers use the terms “fully integrated”, “partially integrated” or “freestanding” to describe the devices. Which model is suitable for you, we explain below.

Basically, it’s about the question of whether you have a fitted kitchen and want to integrate your new dishwasher in the existing kitchen system or not. Fully integrated and semi-integrated dishwashers are suitable for integration into fitted kitchens. The front with fully integrated dishwashers is completely hidden behind a panel matching the rest of the kitchen.

The front panel is continuous, so the display and control panel are hidden and are usually on the top of the door. The advantage: Your whole kitchen appears in a uniform look. On the other hand, semi-integrated devices are clad in the front area with visible controls.

The advantage: Operation is much easier. However, the front differs from the rest of the kitchen system. Freestanding dishwashers have their own, manufacturer-specified design and have the advantage that they can be placed anywhere.

Buy a dishwasher: You should pay attention to this when buying

In addition to the design, the power efficiency, the water consumption and the operation and washing programs are important criteria for the purchase.
Energy Efficiency: The first glance should be on the EU Efficiency Label, which makes it quick and easy to assess the energy consumption, cleaning and drying power of household appliances. The energy efficiency class divides the power consumption into classes A to G. A stands for a particularly low, G for a particularly high consumption.

In the meantime the classifications A +, A ++ and, since December 2010, A +++ have been added. Your desired device should be awarded if possible with the latter. Dishwashers of categories D to G are meanwhile no longer produced. The cleaning efficiency class indicates how well a dishwasher washes. On the scale from A to G, Class A devices give the best results, Class G devices the worst. The drying efficiency class can be used to assess the drying performance of a device.

The scale ranges from A for good to G for bad.

Water consumption and noise level: A modern dishwasher consumes less water per wash cycle than washing dishes by hand. Very economical devices are enough in the eco or economy program about 10 liters. When you rinse, you change the water only from a certain degree of contamination. Make sure that the operating noise is as low as possible – then the dishwasher can also run overnight. Silent products produce a noise level of only around 40 decibels.

Operation: The handling of all devices is similarly simple: program selection, time delay, start / stop – there are usually no more control elements. Important: coarse filter and salt filler neck should be easily accessible. You can pre-program the start procedure via the start time delay. Most devices have a remaining time display. So you know when the dishes are clean and you can clear out the machine.

Washing programs: With the eco or economy program, the dishwasher is particularly thorough and resource-saving. Due to longer exposure times, lower temperatures are sufficient for the rinsing process. The program lasts about two to three hours, but it’s worth it: They often achieve the best cleaning result, protect the environment – and in the long run, your wallet. In the automatic program, the dishwasher estimates the level and degree of contamination and adjusts the program sequence to the values ​​determined. You save some time, but the power and water consumption is usually higher than in economy mode.

The short program is ideal if, for example, the dishes go out during a party. But: It consumes about a third more water and energy than the austerity program. Glued, encrusted food scraps, baked casserole dishes – a case for the intensive program. It also eliminates stubborn dirt with the help of high temperatures and longer rinsing times. Fragile glasses and expensive place settings can be cleaned with the rinse program. It only works with low temperatures that will not damage the material. Some dishwashers even regulate the water hardness.
