Dishwashers

In order to be featured on Topten, dishwasher models must comply with EU Energy labelling regulation No 1059/2010 as well as with the following Topten criteria:

  • Have an Energy Efficiency Index rating of EEI < 50 (corresponding to the A+++ rating)
  • Have a drying efficiency rating of A
  • Have a maximum water consumption of 10L per cycle

Ecodesign minimum rating

The current minimum energy rating of a dishwasher that can be placed on the market is the A+ class.

Best available technology

The most efficient dishwashers currently on the market achieve the A+++ class.

Glossary

Annual energy consumption: the energy consumption according to the EU energy label, based on 280 standard cycles, in kWh.

Capacity: the maximum load capacity of the dishwasher, in standard place settings according to standard EN 50242: Electric dishwashers for household use.

Construction: free-standing or built-in (integrated).

Dimensions: the unpacked dimensions of the product in mm.

Energy consumption per cycle: energy consumption per cycle in kWh according to suppliers' declarations for the standard programme.

Energy Efficiency Index: the basis for the determination of the energy efficiency class. The lower the value, the more efficient is the dishwasher.

Energy label: the energy efficiency class according to the EU energy label. The classes range from A+++ (most efficient) to D (least efficient).

Water consumption per cycle: the water consumption of the standard cycle according to suppliers’ declarations, in litres.

Drying efficiency class: the drying efficiency class according to the EU energy label. The classes range from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).

Noise level: the noise emissions during the standard cycle in decibels (dB), according to the EU energy label.
