Really efficient and really quiet dishwasher.

By 

from USA

Comments about Bosch Built-in Dishwasher:

Bosch was already a reliable name in our household when we purchased this dishwasher. We had purchased a previous dishwasher from them and knew this one was a winner. This dishwasher is easy to use, extremely quiet, and works very well. The only reason I did not rate this one a "10" is because it smells worse in-between washes than any other dishwasher I have owned. For this reason, I would not recommend leaving dishes in this for days in-between cycles. It cleans very well, though, and is the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. You will barely notice that it is running.

Noise Level
This is the quietest dishwasher I have ever owned. You have to strain to hear it running. I love it!!

Cleaning Time
The cycles seem a little long to me. However, sometimes, the cycles will be shorter than they initially display on the screen. I wish the eco-friendly cycle was a lot shorter than the others to make it seem more eco-friendly.

Loading Flexibility
There are multiple ways this accommodates "hard to load" items. You can fold down some of the racks. Also, knife storage pops out of the side. The utensil holder is removable.

Performance
Some of the more hardened stains have to be put back through the dishwasher. However, day-to-day use is very efficient.

Design
I think it looks sharp in the kitchen. I love the streamlined design.

Durability
My only complaint with a couple of years on our dishwasher now is that the handle appears to be breaking. I wish it would have been designed a little better.

Very nice

Comments about Bosch Built-in Dishwasher:

When I moved into an older house the dishwasher was so disgusting that I had to get a new one. I am glad that I choose Bosch. A friend of mine had recently purchased one and had told me how well it worked. It is definitely even better than I was expecting. I had never had a digital timer on a dishwasher before and was shocked of how long it took to wash but other dishwashers are probably about the same but they do not tell you exactly how long the cycle is. I love how every time I hit the start button it goes to the last setting I had before because I do not even have to think about doing the dishes now. I always keep it on the economic setting and everything always comes out clean no matter how many dishes are in there!

Noise Level
It makes a bit of noise but is not that noticable

Cleaning Time
I do not have a problem with the time at all.

Loading Flexibility
It fits most of my dishes but I wish the bottom rack was a bit more suitable for large pans and bowls.

Performance
Always gets my dishes clean.

Design
Looks great.

Durability
I have not had a single problem so far!

Loaded to the brim, but crystal clean dishes everytime!

By 

from USA

Comments about Bosch Built-in Dishwasher:

Fantastic dishwasher that holds a lot of dishes in each load. I have a large family, so we are continually dirtying dishes, and this dishwasher cleans them with little work on my part. It's also a beautiful addition to the kitchen with its unobtrusive exterior and dishwashing sounds.

Noise Level
Naturally, there is some noise that will come with operating a dishwasher. However, compared to other dishwasher brands, the Bosch is wonderfully quiet.

Cleaning Time
I believe the cleaning time can be minimized, but mine is always full of dirty dishes (large, hungry family). Thus, it generally takes a long time for the dishwasher to run. Still, I would say that it takes the average amount of time.

Loading Flexibility
Thankfully, the loading layout works with my needs. However, there are some prongs that could be considered slightly limiting.

Performance
I load the dishwasher with filthy dishes, and it produces spotlessly clean dishes everytime.

Design
The interior layout works well with my needs, but the exterior is my favorite part. It is beautifully designed. The settings are easy to understand and operate. Overall, it is unobtrusive to the kitchen with a sleek, simple design.

Durability
Considering how much I use this machine...I would place a large stamp of approval on its durability.

Dishwasher cleans quietly

By 

from Storm Lake, IA

Comments about Bosch Built-in Dishwasher:

We purchased this dishwasher after a lemon Maytag. I can tell you that this is the quietest dishwasher I have ever experienced. Standing in the kitchen a couple feet from the dishwasher you can not hear it running. A complaint is that the dishwasher does not drain the stuck on food items through the drain, resulting in the need to clean the crud collector each time you run the dishwasher. Some reviews we had read stated that it did not do a good job of drying the dishes, we have not noticed that at all. The dishes are not bone dry but are not dripping wet either. Overall I would recommend this dishwasher to anyone with a family of five or less who is interested in a quality dishwasher at a very reasonable price.

Cleaning Time
An average cycle takes about 2 hours

This Bosch cleans but rack size DOES matter

By 

from USA

Comments about Bosch Built-in Dishwasher:

I like having clean dishes, but this dishwasher is a pain to load. Many dishes won't fit in or between the prongs. I have an especially difficult time with glasses and cup. All-in-all I like it better than the Maytag it replaced, but if I were buying another dishwasher, it would not be this one.

Noise Level
Super silent operation. When I first started using it, I kept checking to make sure it was going!

Loading Flexibility
Those strange racks make me rearrange the dishes every time I run it. I definitely do NOT recommend this machine for large families.

Design
You know, it's the racks.

Wonderful Dishwasher

By 

from Willmar, MN

Comments about Bosch Built-in Dishwasher:

I love this dishwasher. I've had it for over 7 years and it does about 4 loads of dishes a week. Runs smoothly and efficiently. It's quiet and with the right dishwasher soap it gets the dishes sparkling clean. I like that it heats us the water inside the dishwasher and that it is energy efficient. It is just the right size and all of my dishes, even big pans, fit inside it. I will have to say that my parents bought on at the same time as I did and their's only worked long enough for the warranty to expire. So maybe there are a few lemons, but mine is still working just fine!

Noise Level
Very quiet.

Cleaning Time
Takes a while, but does a great job.

Loading Flexibility
Everything fits.

Performance
Very good at cleaning all the dishes.

Design
Great design, looks good and sleek and modern.

Durability
My dishwasher is going on seven years and it still works great!

Very quiet dishwasher

By 

from Alexandria, VA

Comments about Bosch Built-in Dishwasher:

When we bought our house, the only new appliance was this Bosch dishwasher.  I had never heard of this brand before, but when I went to run my first cycle I was shocked to see that it was almost 2 hours long!  Believe me, I never even think about that anymore.  We were the kind of dish-washers who would practically clean the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.  After seeing what a great job this dishwasher did with every load, and how the dishes *felt* so clean when I took them out, I thought that we should try one load where we barely touch the dishes before the go on.  What do you know- our dishes came out sparkling clean!  We couldn't believe it!  So now our dishes almost always go straight from the table to the dishwasher.  The only food that this dishwasher does not do well with is dried peanut butter, so we usually wash those knives pretty well.  But each cycle is so quiet, you barely even know it's on.  We have been so pleased with this dishwasher and hope it lasts us many years!
