Testing and research at CHOICE

What we're testing in our labs, plus how to request a test or get involved in our research.

staff profiles combined


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 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, unbiased and transparent.

And although we might be famous for testing washing machines, we put more than just whitegoods under the microscope. Our team of experts tackle electronics, baby products, food products, financial services and much, much more.

Accredited testing laboratories

CHOICE laboratories are accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) to test products to a wide range of standards. Our accreditations range from children's products such as cots, strollers and toys, to household appliances such as fridges and washing machines.
