CHOICE recommendations for dishwashers are based on their overall, washing and drying scores. To be recommended, conventional dishwashers require a score of at least:
75% for washing performance and,
80% for drying.
We don't include any dishwasher in our recommended list with any weighted scores under 60%. If you don't see a high scoring dishwasher in the recommendations, it's because it does not meet one of these requirements.
Don't buy: These products score under 55% overall.
