Miele dishwasher once again test winner with Stiftung Warentest

Gütersloh, June 30, 2017 No. 052/2017

Particular praise for AutoOpen drying

Dishwashers from Miele with a width of 60 cm and an A+++ energy efficiency rating count among the best. This is the verdict once again arrived at by the German consumer watchdog Stiftung Warentest in their latest dishwasher test (published in Edition 7/2017 of their 'test' magazine). Test winner with a mark of 2.2 was the fully integrated model G 6770 SCVi as well as the technically identical integrated version G 6730 SCi. A 'Good' (2.5) was also awarded to the freestanding unit G 4940 SC additionally tested.

The test personnel found the results in the energy-efficient Eco programme worthy of special mention. Most convincing of all was AutoOpen drying. The explanation runs: 'A small gap has a huge impact: The Miele built-in dishwasher automatically opens its door ajar around an hour before the end of the Eco programme. This allows steam out and fresh air in. This air circulates between the crockery items. By adopting this approach, plates, glasses and cutlery dries better than on other models. There is no need to wipe items dry'.

In the Eco programme, Miele achieves in total the best results in the test. This includes additional tests on, among other things, plastic items, pots and pans, and glass bowls. A quote from the 'test' magazine on the subject explains: 'Only the built-in appliance from Miele dries plastics, glasses and pots and pans well in the Eco programme'.

The current test win continues Miele's story of success. 'Three test wins in four years - that is quite a convincing feat. It is evident once more that our strategy is the right one, namely of focussing on dishwashers on energy efficiency without entertaining any compromises in terms of cleaning or drying performance', says Jan-Bernd Rapp, Head of Product Management at Miele's German sales subsidiary.
