A bit disappointed

By 

from Penrose, NC

Comments about Bosch Ascenta Evolution Series Built-in Dishwasher:

I was so excited to have this installed. It looks great. I really like the eco wash function. However, I have to rinse every dish until there is nothing at all left on it or it will not get clean in this dishwasher. In my previous house the dishwaser is 16 years old ( don't remember the brand unfortunately) and I did not rinse at all. I would scrape off any excess of course but did not rinse. The dishes always got clean. So I was disappointed with this Bosch in that regard. I have used all the washing options and get the same results for each.

For the most part I like it...

By 

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Bosch Ascenta Evolution Series Built-in Dishwasher:

This has probably been the best dishwasher we have ever had, but it has some cons to it. The thing I love about it is that it is very roomy. It cleans the top rack pretty well too. I like that it is energy efficent. I also like that it is quiet. You can barely hear it. I also like you have a lot of options to use when you wash your dishes. For the most part my dishes are clean. The down fall is that the button that you push to start the dishwasher has been getting where it will all of a sudden pops out and then you realize your dishes are not clean. Granted, we have had our dishwasher for a while now. I have noticed that sometimes the dishes are not always dry when the dishwasher is done. I have had a few times where I have not rinsed the dishes and then the food was still on my dishes. I sill do think it is the best dishwasher I have ever had though. I will recommend it because it has lasted better than any other dishwasher we have ever had. Bosch's dishwashers are well built.

washes dishes well

By 

from Andalusia, AL

Comments about Bosch Ascenta Evolution Series Built-in Dishwasher:

This is the dishwasher that i recently had installed in my kitchen. I like it because when it is on, i hardly even notice it. It runs quickly, and also very quietly.When i put in greasy, dirty utensils and dishes, i can always count on them getting cleaned. the dishwasher has nice racks that are easy for me to pull out. It also has a nice utensils bin for me to put spoons, forks, knives, and other small things that are more likely to fall through the spaces in the racks. The dishwasher has a slick modern design and the outside of it does not show fingerprints from my kids. The installation process was easy to do with my husband, and we have not problems with water leaking like we did with the other dishwasher we previously had.

you work, then Bosch SHE6AP05UC works

By 

from Apex, NC

Comments about Bosch Ascenta Evolution Series Built-in Dishwasher:

The **Bosch SHE6AP05UC 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher** is an attractive dishwasher that works well after you do the dirty work of rinsing dishes.  After spending money on a higher end brand such as Bosch, I was sorely disappointed to find that I am still rinsing away.  If I do not rinse our dishes before washing, the food dries hard onto the dishes.  The food then becomes extremely difficult to get off.  After our experience with this Bosch model, I wish I had bought a more sleek line model with the handle across the top to make for easier opening (the door can get slightly stuck sometimes) and researched the washing power.  I have not however, played with all of the settings.  I usually use automatic (which I assume would do whatever is most efficient to clean thoroughly).  The best feature about this dishwasher is the half load.  It is very convenient to be able to put even top load dishes on the bottom drawer to save energy using a half load.

Bosch dishwasher is super quite!

By 

from Mohnton, PA

Comments about Bosch Ascenta Evolution Series Built-in Dishwasher:

For the most part I love my bosch dishwasher. It is super quite and gets the dishes very clean even without me rinsing them first. But what I really struggle to like with this dishwasher is the fact that I cant fit as much in it as I could fit in my whirlpool dishwasher. I've had the Bosch for a year now and recently was talking to an appliance salesman about it and he informed me that Bosch is made slightly shorter than other dishwashers. It would have been nice to know that before I bought it because it really does make a difference in the amount of things i can fit in. Other than that it is an excellent dishwasher though.

Clean if damp dishes

By 

from Natick, MA

Comments about Bosch Ascenta Evolution Series Built-in Dishwasher:

  We replaced a very old dishwasher with this bosch mid level washer.  We chose this model for a number of reasons, not necessarily in this order  

1- energy efficiency  

2- No exposed heating element 

3- price

No heating element was important to us because we have a child, and as a reult have alot of plastic cups to wash daily.  The lack of a heating element allows us to use both the top and bottom racks to wash plastic items.  The downside is that there is no active drying feature, so you are more susceptible to spots and streaks on your dishes.  There is a feature to turn on an extended drying time which is condensation drying.  This features uses the residual heat from the rinsing to dry the dishes and drain the water.  Bosch requires/highly recommends the use of a drying agent, even if one is included in the detergent you use.  I use Electrasol tablets with a Jet dry tablet included, and the non plastice items seem to dry well enough without the additional drying agent.  BUT the plastic items do tend to have spots.  This may be partly due to the fact that our water is on the hard side, but I think it is worth noting.  Also, the lack of active drying leaves water in areas where water pools such as concaved mug or bowl bottoms and tupperware lids.Other features:The top rack can be adjusted to 2 levels, high and low to accommodate either taller glasses on the top or larger items on the bottom.  This is done by removing and replacing teh top rack onto one of 2 sets of tracks.

There are fold down supports along one side of the top rack that can be used to support stemware or as an added shelf for small items.

This model also comes with 3 clips used to hold small items.

There is a manual filter for food mits and larger debris which does not fit through.  There is no built in disposal.

This model also does not have a fully stainless steel tub, it is a combination of composite and stainless.

Overall I think this dishwasher does a good job cleaning, and I'm fine with the spots on the plastic and can dry the small pools.

Bosch dishwasher is amazing... soo quiet!

By 

from Evansville, IN

Comments about Bosch Ascenta Evolution Series Built-in Dishwasher:

We have had our Bosch dishwasher for over a month now and I absolutley love it!  It gets my dishes super clean, the sparkle like they never had before.  I love that it has a sanitise cycle so that I can wash baby bottles in it and not have to worry about sterilizing them.  You also can fit alot in this machine, you can even fit tall items and pots on the top rack.  I love that it has a top rack only wash feature, so if I don't have a full load I can just put everything on the top rack and hit a button and save water and energy instead of running an entire cycle.  One of the biggest reasons I love this machine is because of how quiet it is.  It is so quiet you can't even hear it running!  The first time we ran it I had to open it just to make sure it was actually running.  Another thing I like about this machine is that it has a stainless steel interior and the racks are teflon coated stainless steel, it looks like it will last a long time.
