We will figure out what are the features of the “kitchen helpers” of the German brand and consider their best models. For an objective assessment of dishwashers, we identified competitive advantages and highlighted the shortcomings identified by users.

Design features dishwashers Miele:

  1. Profitability. The appliances are programmed so that the minimum amount of resources is used in the dishwashing process. Although it all depends on the specific device and the selected mode, there are models that cost only 6.5 liters of water per load.
  2. Reasonable water supply. Alternate water supply to the sprayers for best washing and rinsing results.

Dishwasher Miele in the interior
Miele dishwashers belong to the hi-end class, for the creation of which exclusive designs, cutting-edge design and various innovative ideas are used, so the price of models is so high

Of the benefits, consumers noted:

  • high quality materials and machine assembly;
  • good roominess even in narrow models;
  • low power consumption and minimal water consumption;
  • the ability to change the program at its discretion;
  • intuitive machine control principle;
  • easy loading utensils using marker tips;
  • excellent cleaning results even heavily soiled dishes;
  • perfect care for glass, porcelain items;
  • the ability to connect to hot water.

The most important minus is the high price. Therefore, some consumers say that instead of one Miele dishwasher, you can buy 2-3 lower class cars, albeit not so comfortable and functional.

Therefore, we consider in more detail the characteristics of the most popular models of consumer demand, their advantages and disadvantages.

The best models of freestanding dishwashers

In addition to its impressive volume, the main advantage of the Miele floor machines is its robust cover, which can easily be adapted as an additional work surface.

Such appliances can also be installed under the countertop, but they do not fit into the kitchen, so if necessary they can move with the owners from place to place.

No. 1 - roomy Miele G 4203 SC Active BRWS

A very overall model from the Aktiv series, the height of which is 850 mm, and the width and depth of 600 mm each, is equipped with push-button switches, including for independent programming of the washing mode. It easily accommodates up to 14 sets of dishes.

Model G 4203 SC is available in standard white and with a signature steel coating Cleansteel with protection against dirt and fingerprints.

  3. ECO - with an optimum consumption of water (up to 13.5 l) and electricity.
  4. Intense - for thorough washing of heavily soiled dishes, including pots and pans with soot, at a temperature of 75 ° C.
  5. Automatic - a mode that allows the machine itself to choose the duration of work, depending on the completeness of the load and the degree of contamination of objects.

Judging by consumer reviews, the dishwasher works really quietly and is able to serve a large family. Respect for glass and other delicate objects is not satisfactory.

Thanks to the patented pallet design, all cutlery can be positioned separately to perfectly clean and dry items without damaging their shiny finish.

The users noted the efficiency of the model - with its good capacity, it spends up to 15 liters of water and not more than 1.35 kW / h in auto mode. And when connecting dishwasher to hot water supply you can additionally save 40-50% on electricity.

As for the minuses, with a large load, there may remain streaks in metal pans, which must be removed manually.

Also, for many housewives, the minimum set of functions is not enough and I would like more programs, however, the last drawback is completely compensated by the ability to specify individual settings for the technique.

No. 2 - economical Miele G 6000 SC Jubilee A +++

A premium Jubilee dishwasher equipped with Miele's best-in-class dishwasher. No wonder the G 6000 SC Jubilee is called economical - with an automatic wash, it spends no more than 6.5 liters of water per load.

For the G 6000 SC model, a construction box is provided ExtraComfort, which is equipped with various, height-adjustable holders: a box with a fixed comb, a retainer for tall glasses, a sliding tray and an enlarged lower basket.

Judging by consumer reviews, there is only one drawback with the G 6000 SC - the high cost starting from 79,900 rubles. But the happy owners of such an assistant have no complaints about the quality of the sink or the reliability of the device.

  1. The dishwasher from Miele is my dream. Our family has already had the opportunity to assess whether the praised quality of this brand is actually true - we bought a washer of this brand. Of course, a very high-quality technique, absolutely no complaints. I would like to purchase all types of household equipment manufactured by them, but the price tags bite. Therefore, you have to prioritize, buying a little bit. Using this technique, you fully understand the meaning of the expression “decent quality of life”.
