Our old dishwasher bit the dust and we had to begin the hunt for a good replacement. I didn't want to spend the money on fancy great looking brand names that looked amazing but didn't clean very well. After looking at a few options, we unanimously decided on the Bosch SHE3AR76UC. We had heard good things about the brand but had no previous experience with it. It looked good and seemed to have some great reviews. We decided to reserve our opinions until we experienced it for ourselves. Installation was easy with the proper connections. It's a beautiful machine that fit perfectly with our existing kitchen design BUT when we turned it on..... THAT is when the magic happened!!! This dishwasher is sooooo quiet! You can stand next to it, have a phone conversation, AND hear EVERY WORD!! At first we double and triple checked to make sure that it was still on. It was. When the test was over, we put on the kick plate with insulation that came with it... and it was even quieter. We were amazed. When we opened the door, the sight was amazeballs. Everything was so clean that it actually sparkled. Literally sparkled.Our dishes were CLEAN! Like *SHING!!! SPARKLE! SPARKLE!* clean. We cook a lot in this house and we're pretty busy so the dishes aren't always done immediately. This cleaned crusted glass baking dishes and stainless steel sauce pans/pots with no problem. I am so impressed with this machine.
