Miele Futura Dimension G 5670 SC VI Dishwasher Review
The dishwasher with an open-door policy.
By The Numbers
Despite all that this dishwasher has going for it, we wouldn’t be able to reach a sound conclusion about how well it cleans dishes without solid data to back it up. While many of the Miele Futura Dimension G 5670 SC VI’s strengths relate to its fit, finish, and build quality, we also have numbers to prove it's superiority at cleaning dishes.
We load dishes filled with carefully-measured portions of baked-on spinach, dried up meat chunks, and all sorts of other nastiness. We then score based on how much of that is left behind after a wash, and we found that the G5670SCVi’s Normal and Pots & Pans cycles could clean every stain with 100% efficacy.
Of course, we know stain removal is not the only factor in determining whether a dishwasher is worthy of purchase. We clocked the commonly-used cycles on the G 5670 SC VI and were a little disappointed with the times. The Normal cycle took 2 hours and 21 minutes, which is a bit on the longer side. Engaging the Turbo feature brought this down to 1 hour and 46 minutes.
Unfortunately, there’s no Quick cycle on this dishwasher, and no cycle lasts under an hour.
We ran efficiency tests on the G 5670 SC VI’s Normal and Pots & Pans cycles, then ran another on Normal with the Turbo option engaged. Overall, this dishwasher uses more power per cycle compared to similar cycles on other dishwashers. As a result, we calculated an annual cost of $33.74 a year to run this Miele, which is higher than the $29-30 average.
All three cycles use about the same amount of water. Specifically, the Normal cycle used 0.96 kWh of power and 4.15 gallons of hot water, Pots & Pans used 1.13 kWh of power and 4.05 gallons of water, and Normal with Turbo engaged used 1.02 kWh and 3.98 gallons of water.
We were able to fit ten place settings and a serving setting inside the G 5670 SC VI. The highly adjustable racks and shelves made it easy to load everything, and the absence of a cutlery basket didn’t negatively impact the capacity test.
