How and why we test

Here at CHOICE we've built our reputation on the strength of our rigorous and scientific testing of goods and services.

Our testing process is what we're famous for and the key to Australians' trust in us. So, as you can imagine, we take our testing seriously.

  • We have a dedicated team of 13 testers, many of them experienced scientists.
  • We pay retail price for all the items tested.
  • We use a range of metrics such as price, durability and ease of use.
  • Our tests are completely independent and transparent.

And although we might be famous for testing washing machines, we put more than just whitegoods under the microscope. Our testing team tackles food products, medicines, financial services, sporting goods, holidays and much, much more.

Lab tours

Have you ever wondered how CHOICE tests hundreds of products every year? From pushing strollers along hundreds of kilometers of rugged road to cooking up a storm in the test kitchen, we have a unique facility where most products we review are tested on site.

Intrigued to see just how we do it? Why not book in to come along on one of our lab tours?

Lab tours are free for CHOICE members. Tours are also available for non-members for a fee which covers the tour running costs.
