NZ’s top brand ovens and espresso machines

Breville espresso machineBosch, Breville and Miele are the latest winners of the 2015 Consumer NZ Top Brand awards.

Bosch has won in the dual-fuel oven category, Breville for espresso machines, and Miele for wall ovens.

Consumer’s Top Brand endorsements were established this year and brands are measured by a robust methodology.

To achieve Top Brand status, a brand must perform well across product tests as well as customer satisfaction and reliability surveys.

Bosch, Breville and Miele were above average in product tests and customer satisfaction, and had at least average reliability. In Consumer NZ’s customer satisfaction survey, Bosch dual-fuel ovens achieved a satisfaction rating of 87 per cent , Breville espresso machines achieved 90 per cent and Miele wall ovens 95 per cent.

Results were calculated from independent tests on 57 ovens, 33 espresso machines and survey results from more than 4000 Consumer NZ members.

Product testing receives a 50 per cent weighting under methodology, with satisfaction and reliability both receiving 25 per cent.

Consumer GM for business, Derek Bonnar, said the Top Brand award is one of the most robust and important endorsements in the NZ market.

“Measuring three key components and asking thousands of New Zealanders for their opinion means the winning brands have to perform across the board to be considered a Top Brand. We congratulate these three brands,” he added.

“Winning brands can license use of Consumer NZ awards for marketing and promotions. All revenue raised from the endorsement program goes back to the research and testing program, the awards initiatives, and to working on behalf of consumers.”
