    We have a Bosch and it's amazing!!! I'm really glad we spent the extra $ as it gets a flogging! Oh and it's really quiet.

    I will add. A few people I know have got no name brands and they just never seem to completely clean and dry. I don't see the point of a dishwasher if you still have to dry the dishes.

    Also buy good quality tablets and rinse aid. We tried cheaper brands and they just didn't work for us at all.

    The dishwasher at our house is a 1977 model, approximately 177cm tall, brunette. In other words, it's ME! Haha! But to answer your question seriously, I've previously had both Bosch and Miele ones. Both really good. Bosch would probably be my first pick, I recall that it did a great job on tough baked on food.

    Edit: I don't recommend the drawer type of dishwasher. Horrible to load and mine did a crap job.

    Years ago we had one in a place we rented and it seemed to be just a cheapie. The top rack was never cleaned properly.

    I'm mainly after a good standalone one that can fit a lot in it. I'm not too fussed on noise or length of cycle

    We have a Miele and it is amazing. It has a cutlery draw up the top so no space wasted for the basket.

    Everything comes out spotless, dry and streak free. Best of all it is extremely quiet.

    I've had cheaper ones in other homes and I really think it's worth the extra money for a good one.

    This is the cutlery draw because I don't know how to explain it. https://m.miele.com.au/domestic/1752...=200019009-ZPV

    I have Bosch. Had Miele in last house but it was hopeless. Wondering if our last Miele was a dud as I have and like all their other products - ovens, induction cooktop, washing machine, dryer etc.

    I have Miele. Really love it. I do wish we got the cutlery drawer at the top. Otherwise - it washes well. Has good water ratings. Is quiet. Have not had issues for the 4ish years I have had it.

    I am also going to add the drawer type dishwashers are rubbish. Had them at work. They were terrible.

    I was given an old Miele dishwasher when a family member renovated their kitchen, and it was pretty good, but the Bosch one in an apartment I rented with exH was much better by far.
