Recommended dishwasher detergents, by Consumer Reports

“The best detergents clean well without leaving film on glassware or discolouring aluminium,” says Consumer Reports. “Top performers can also remove a ‘monster mash’ of sticky foods from glass dishware and, from pots, a macaroni-and-cheese blend. These recommended detergents not only remove the food but also keep it from being redeposited and don’t leave water spots.”

Here is the Consumer Reports’ selection of recommended dishwasher detergents. The maximum overall score is 100, and “Best Buy” models offer more value.
