Dishwashers are an underappreciated appliance. If you're getting by without one, you know that washing by hand is a tedious chore that plays havoc on your hands. The best dishwashers will quietly and quickly clean dishes and glasses for you. It shouldn’t get more complicated than that, but a bad dishwasher can be more inconvenient than no dishwasher at all. That’s why it’s important to invest in the best.

Short of turning my kitchen into an industrial dishwasher unit, I’ve thoroughly researched the best dishwashers on the market. I also have years of useful hands-on experience with the Fisher Paykel and Bosch dishwasher. As in our guide to the best washing machines, I’ve rigorously examined a range of customer and professional reviews, assessed expert information, and followed up on some of the magnificent claims made by each brand. 

Not only have I found the best dishwasher you can buy - the Miele G 7566 SCVi SF -  but I’ve also found the best for different needs. Whether you want your dishwasher to be smart, quiet, large, small, or a drying specialist, it’s on my list.

The bottom line

🔎 Miele G7566SCVISF: This diligent machine automatically dispenses detergent and can thoroughly clean and dry dishes across a range of cycles.

Miele consistently delivers premium products and this dishwasher is no exception. Designed to make dishwashing effortless, the AutoDos system automatically dispenses detergent, and holds enough for twenty cycles. This thrives at around Thanksgiving or Christmas when you’re entertaining, because rather than overpour the detergent with back-to-back loads, the dishwasher regulates how much detergent you need. The result: less of an overflow of suds.

The range of cycle settings all perform exceptionally well. The QuickIntenseWash is a favorite amongst users. It takes just under an hour and tackles the toughest foods effortlessly. The Ecostart setting runs when utility rates are lower, and the auto-open arms ensure that you don’t have dishes sitting in damp for long periods of time. The SaniWash and IntenseZone receive lots of praise from reviewers with families too, because they can reach high temperatures and tough soils, making your dishes sanitary again. Users also like the adjustable shelves, which can make the most of this washer’s capacity. 

Premium performance comes with a price tag close to $3,000. Some suggest the Bosch 800, the second in this roundup, as a comparable dishwasher, but for less money. It’s also worth noting that this has a cutlery tray, not a basket, so you’ll need to be organized when loading, because each utensil needs to be lined up, rather than loaded in a big bundle.
