We all love the convenience of dishwashers – they keep our kitchen essentials clean and sparkling, while sparing us the hassle of washing up.

However, they're high-cost items and when shopping for a new one, you want to know you'll be getting your money's worth. That's why we've done the hard work for you and compiled our top 12 dishwashing appliances, from big-name brands like Bosch, Hotpoint, Hisense and Beko.

Spanning integrated and freestanding designs, most of our list includes dishwashers under £400, each able to make light work of cleaning pots, pans, glassware, cutlery and crockery.

Keep in mind during your online browsing how much kitchenware you need your new dishwasher to fit, as this can vary between models and brands.

Don't forget about energy efficiency, too. This can be discovered via the energy rating on every dishwasher (this will be between A and G, the most commonly seen are B and C) – which can help lower your energy bills and impact on the environment.
