The Miele freestanding dishwasher is one of the more expensive models on the market, so it can be expected to hold up well compared to other products. The Miele dishwasher offers maximum flexibility thanks to ingenious adjustment options that create space in the dishwasher, even for small items. This dishwasher is one of the more energy-efficient models; it is classified in the better class C and uses 0.74 kWh for one washing cycle. Its water consumption of 6 l per Automatic cycle is a pleasant surprise, making it one of the most economical dishwashers. The cost of electricity for £0.34 per kWh for one Automatic process is approximately £0.25.
This dishwasher does not stand out regarding washing or drying efficiency, but that is mainly because practically all modern dishwashers are equal in these respects; in short, they wash and dry more or less at the same level. With a noise level of 45 dB, the dishwasher is average.
The Miele dishwasher offers seven programs, which is above the standard, but can be expected to a certain extent for a model of this price category. Of course, the most popular (and often the only) washing programs that users use must be included. Specifically, it is a quick program called Quickpowerwash, an ECO and automatic program. The fast program saves you time, and the dishwasher can wash the dishes within an hour, but it tends to be demanding on consumption. The Eco program, on the other hand, is economical, but it can drag on quite a bit. The automatic program tries to optimise consumption and time based on the number of dishes loaded.
In addition, this model also has a unique program for washing glass – Extra Dry, as well as Intensive 75 °C, which is intended for maximum cleaning performance, for example, for pots, pans, and more. Furthermore, the Express program is offered, which cuts any program in half.
