Best Dishwasher Reviews

What is the best dishwasher?  Who makes the best dishwashers on the market?  These are questions we frequently get asked, but there is no easy answer.

Best Dishwasher Lists - Top 10

Here at, we aim to to make your search for the right dishwasher as simple and painless as possible.

So we have recently decided to put together lists of the top 10 dishwashers in as many categories as possible, based on how well they sell and consumer feedback ratings.

The team is busy compiling the information on these best selling, best rated dishwashers, but to see where we're going with this, take a look at our page covering:

In the future, we'll be bringing you a round-up of dishwashers in:

  • different price categories eg - best $500-800.  Until, we complete this, you might like to read the Consumer Reports February 2014 article on 5 Dependable Dishwashers for $400 or Less
  • different styles eg - top10 black dishwashers
  • and with different characteristics eg -  quietest dishwashers.

We hope our readers will find these lists helpful.

According to Consumer Reports, the independent product testing organisation in the United States, the best rated dishwasher in April 2013 was the Kenmore Elite 12783.

As for the best brand on the market, Consumer Reports said that: 

"One brand, Bosch, has topped our dishwasher ratings for many years.  Until now.  In the latest tests, the Kenmore Elite 12783, edged out the number two Bosch Ascenta SHX3AR7[5]UC."
