It washes great, is extremely quiet, love the flatware tray. And expecially like the versatility of the racks and tines which can be maneuvered and set to many different degrees. And it really d oes clean fine china and stemware beautifully. Noise Level Noise level is very good, however I would rate my BOSCH as the quietest ever. That's not to say the miele is making a racket. Far from it. But comparatively speaking, BOSCH is quieter. Loading Flexibility This dishwasher has the most flexibility of any dishwasher I've ever owned. You can put huge pots and pans, long stemed glassware, small items and everything in between. It takes some getting used to but once you get the grip of it, it's fantastic. Performance Cleans exceptionally well Design Excellent design.
