Miele dishwashers awarded for cleaning performance, lower energy and water consumption


Important satisfaction for Miele, which obtained a prestigious recognition for the quality of its dishwashers in term of performance and energy-water consumption. The company’s models were the sole winners in the current test conducted by Germany’s consumer watchdog Stiftung Warentest (StiWa, test 10/2019). The fully integrated model G 6770 SCVi and its technically identical integrated counterpart G 6730 SCi (both with A+++ energy efficiency rating) were awarded the top mark of 2.0. Miele also submitted the best dishwasher (G 4990 SCVi/G 4940 SCi) among model versions with an A++ rating. The test covered a total of 20 models, whereof twelve had an A+++ and eight an A++ rating.
Miele was the only contender to achieve a ‘Very good’ for cleaning performance combined with the lowest energy and water consumption in all tested programmes. Only the energy consumption in the ‘Short’ programme was higher, whereby Miele was the only appliance to achieve a ‘Very good’ for cleaning in this programme. Further top marks were achieved only by Miele in the automatic programme for energy and water consumption (Good), integration (Very good) and handling (Good). The test winner achieved top marks for sound emissions, as the quietest machines across the board (below 40 dB). As anticipated, best marks were also awarded for product durability. This aspect was based on 2800 programmes to simulate 10 years of use.
«The fact that Miele dishwashers regularly rank among test winners – says Olaf Dietrich, Head of Dishwasher Product Management of the company – is attributable to the machines’ particular dependability and workmanship. The current test confirms Miele’s strategy of focussing on cleaning results, reliable performance and high quality alongside energy efficiency».
Two years ago, StiWa covered Miele models G 6770 SCVi/G 6730 SCi in their test, which again came out as test winners. That test highlighted in particular the AutoOpen drying where the door automatically opens to the ajar position at the end of a cycle to allow in fresh air to support drying.
