The Bosch 24 inch 800 Series Built-in dishwasher has been a huge hit in my home. We were needing one and now that we have it, I realize all the more how much we needed it. It has been a huge time saver and a big help for quick cleanups after any meal where there are an endless amount of dishes leftover. I usually do a quick rinse in the sink to remove extra food from surfaces and then pass them off to the dishwasher. This may not be necessary but I figure its less hard on the machine. It does a great job of cleaning the dishes, leaving them shiny and dry. Then you are set for putting things away in a moment and ready to fill up the washer again. The amount of time for washing and drying the dishes is reasonable and | often do two loads a day. Noise Level Great, very quiet or soft and practically unnoticeable. Loading Flexibility Can fit in a lot of dishes of all shapes and sizes, no problem. Performance Wonderful. Design Simple and classic.
