Efficiency – this seems to be the hot topic at the moment, especially with energy bills continuing to rise. Naturally, this has led to a significant number of questions around how better efficient appliances can cut energy bills. With a new energy rating system being rolled out in early 2021, it can be confusing to decipher which rated appliances are better on energy and on your wallet. According to InTheWash, an A rated dishwasher can cost around 15p per cycle, equalling to around 0.54 kWh of energy, where as a C rated dishwasher uses 0.78 kWh of electricity, equalling an average of 22p per cycle. The average household uses their dishwasher around 280 times a year, meaning that, by choosing an A rated dishwasher, you could save £19.27 compared to that of a C rated dishwasher.

Evidently, choosing a more energy efficient dishwasher can make a big impact on your energy bills, which is why we’ve compiled a list of the most efficient dishwashers on the market.
