Five new Which? Best Buy dishwashers

We’ve put 10 of the latest dishwashers through our tough testing, including full-sized, slimline and compact models from AEG, Bosch, Fisher & Paykel, Hotpoint and Zanussi. Five of the dishwashers we tested did such a good job of cleaning and drying our dirty dishes that we’ve awarded them Best Buys[1]. One model scored an impressive 87%, making it one of the highest scoring dishwashers we’ve seen.

But one of the dishwashers on test left our crockery so grimy that it got just one star for cleaning. It left glasses smeared with watermarks, and was noisy to boot. We simply couldn’t recommend it so we had to name it a Don’t Buy[2].

Below we take a look at some of the latest models we’ve just tested. Read on to find out more about the dishwashers on test, and click the links to head through to our full reviews. Dishwasher reviews[3] – read all of our reviews of the latest dishwashers


This full-sized dishwasher has space for 13 place settings, so you can wash 130 items in one go. The lower rack can be adjusted using a ComfortLift mechanism, which lets you pull it out and raise it to the level of the upper rack for loading and unloading. The AEG FSS62800P, which was also on test, has the same feature.

We assess every dishwasher on test to see how easy it is to use, so can the ComfortLift lower rack help when unloading large loads of dishes? Read our full AEG FSK93800P review[4] to find out.

Bosch SMV68TD06G/01

The SMV68TD06G/01 is a full-sized integrated dishwasher with capacity for 14 place settings, which should be plenty for all but the biggest families or dinner parties.

It’s wi-fi connected, so you can control it via the companion app on your smartphone. It’s got an A+++ energy rating, but we check energy and water use on both the main and eco program in our testing so we can tell you how much each dishwasher will affect your annual utility bills. Find out how economical this smart and stylish dishwasher is, and how it does on cleaning and drying, by reading our Bosch SMV68TD06G/01 review[5].

Bush DWINT125W

This full-sized Bush dishwasher is exclusive to Currys and costs less than ?200. It can wash 120 items or twelve place settings in one load, so it may be on the small side for some. We know that price doesn’t correlate to performance when it comes to cleaning dishes and glassware – we’ve found plenty of good low-priced models and some pricey duds too.

So how does this bargain Bush measure up? Read our review of the Bush DWINT125W[6] to find out.

Fisher & Paykel DD60SCTHX9

This Fisher & Paykel dishwasher is a semi-integrated one-drawer dishwasher that has room for 60 items.

It’s designed for built-in kitchens, but with a front exterior that’s designed to be visible rather than hidden behind a regular kitchen cabinet door. We put this dinky dishwasher through the same testing as full-sized or slimline models, so we can tell you if the cleaning and drying is up to scratch. So is this the perfect option if you’re tight on space?

Head to the our Fisher & Paykel DD60SCTHX9 review[7] to see whether this small machine is mighty.

Sony Xperia XR news and rumors

To say that Sony s mobile brand is one dogged by turbulence is a bit of an understatement: The Xperia division recorded a loss of $544 million for the 2015 financial year. That s partly thanks to tribulations brought on by its parent company s continued restructuring it cut 1,000 jobs in Europe and China early last year. But also to blame are an inexplicable series of management missteps: the Xperia Z3+, one of the first smartphones to sport Qualcomm s Snapdragon 810 chipset, was initially plagued by reports of overheating, and when Sony s latest handset, the Z5, became available in North America an off-contract capacity, it bizarrely shipped without a fingerprint sensor. Sony s desperate for a hit, needless to say. Last month, leaked images showed a previously unrevealed Sony handset that s slightly different from the company s established design language. Now we ve got a few renders, and a name the Xperia XR. Here s everything we know so far.


Notable leaker @OnLeaks has released renders1 of Sony s upcoming handset, which he calls the Xperia XR. Take a look at them below, but keep in mind that we cannot verify any of these images or the name of the handset take everything with a grain of salt.

So, here comes the first one #SONY #XPERIAXR (moniker TBC)Roughly 146.4 71.9 8.1mm

OnLeaks (@OnLeaks) August 7, 20165

The smartphone is actually quite similar in looks to the Xperia X there are the same button placements, and the rear camera sits in a familiar place. The top and bottom bezels are a little thick.

But previous images do show that the handset, which GSM Arena reports7 might be the F8331, features geometry that s a little more angular than this year s Xperia X. The aesthetic might almost be described as brutalist: the phone s top and bottom edges terminate harshly at the edges, and there s no sign of the rounded, sloping corners of the type on the Xperia X. Rather, the prototype s longer edges taper at its front and rear, evoking Nokia s Lumia series of Windows Phones. It s not entirely seamless the phone s rear cover sports a discolored tab near its bottom, presumably to accommodate antennas, and a camera and flash dominate the top-left side. The image s source claims the screen is larger than that on the Xperia X.

It may not be long before Sony blows the lid on its skunkworks phone, though it s scheduled to make an appearance at September s IFA conference in Berlin. And even if it did, it might be bound for destinations overseas: according to leaked documents obtained by Xperia Blog in July9, Sony plans to defocus its mobile business in the United States, India, China, and Brazil in the coming months in favor of alternative East Asian, European, and Middle Eastern countries.


The design renders from @OnLeaks and the leaked images clearly indicate the phone will have a USB Type-C port, a first for Sony. The former leaker also says the Xperia XR will have dimensions of 146.4 x 71.9 x 8.1 mm. That s slightly larger than the Xperia X it s dimensions are 142.7 x 69.4 x 7.9 mm. A profiteering user of Nju kalo10, Croatia s dominant classified ads website, has listed11 a unit of the unreleased smartphone for sale.

The seller describes it as a new model of Xperia X Performance, and provided a few specifications. According to the listing, the phone features a 5.1-inch display, 23MP rear-facing camera and 12MP front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM, and non-slippery metal housing. A USB Type-C port appears to be on tap and so too does a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Everything else about the Xperia XR remains a big unknown.
