Kagoo Score

Why Has it Scored 85?

purchasers report that it has superb user reviews with an average user rating of 94%, based on 114 reviews.
This dishwasher is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer dishwashers with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
This Bosch dishwasher has an energy efficiency classification of A++, and its running costs of £460 over 10 years are pretty average compared to the other 2,400+ dishwashers that we have calculated running costs for.
The Serie 6 SMV68MD02E has some great features:
Quieter than average noise level
Has a self-cleaning filter
Has a load sensor
Has a remaining time indication

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each dishwasher by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the dishwasher is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec dishwashers come to market, the older dishwashers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
