Dishwashers Buying Guide

In our cleaning tests we ask more of a dishwasher than you probably ever will—we load 10 full place settings, slathering a dozen of those dishes with a composite of sugar, starches, proteins, and fat. These are elements typically found in most foods. We bake on the mixture to make it tough to remove, then wash the dishes using the normal cycle. We record cycle time, judge how noisy each machine is, and assess how well the plastics dried.
