    Super Quiet, Super Small

    Posted

    We got this for our very small ski condo. A quiet appliance was of utmost importance to my husband - since the kitchen/dining and livingroom are basically all in one space. So, we shelled out the extra bucks for a Bosch. We've been using it for three weekends now. The Bosch is amazingly quiet. You pretty much can't even tell that it is on. Auto mode does seem to create a little noise, but when set to Normal, it goes into Stealth mode . It does an excellent job of cleaning. And, I was very happy to read the manual's explanation of its built-in "leak protection system". So, I needn't worry about it causing flooding for us or our downstairs neighbor. I would, without hesitation, buy a Bosch again. My only qualm with the machine is that it *is* quite small and I'm still learning how to load it to maximize space. For two adults and two kids, using it on weekends, with mostly pre-prepared meals that we bring up from home - it is the right size. However, I did just go out and buy a set of extra-short drinking glasses (3" high) so they would fit and allow the extra shelf to flip down for another row on top of them. Teacups work nicely, but mugs are too high for that side with the flip-down shelf. I have thought, as I stand there figuring out how best to configure the plates and bowls... 'You know, I could have just hand-washed these by now...' I'm hoping that with a little more use I'll get it sorted out and it will be a quick load-up and wash scenario. If you can make the space for it, I'd recommend getting a standard-sized model. If you can't, and you need a quiet machine - the Bosch is a good choice.

    Quiet operation and quality built

    I'm impressed with this dishwasher. As advertised it is very quiet during the wash cycle (rated 46db). For most of the cycle, you really can't tell that it's running. There is a countdown clock that shows the time remaining. Efficiently organized racks allow this small dishwasher to hold a surprisingly large amount of dishes. (Did you know that 18" dishwashers are standard in Europe?) The top rack is adjustable into three positions. Two spray arms on the bottom of the top rack do not interfere with plates on the bottom rack. Top rack also has fold down shelf for cups and large utensils. We've washed plastic containers on the top shelf, and they did NOT flip over and fill with water. Easy operation, with up to 24 hour delayed start. Has an adjustable built in water softener if you have hard water. The drain filters are easy to access for removal and cleaning. Does a great job of washing and drying the dishes. As far as installation, the dishwasher comes complete with the fill and drain hoses, and electrical plug; no need to buy any additional hoses. The dishwasher fill hose has a built in sensor that will shut off the water supply to the washer if it senses a leak. The dishwasher feels like a well built, german engineered product.

    Wish I Had Waited a Little Longer

    Don't get me wrong because of my title. I love my 18 inch dishwasher. I purchased it for my summer home where I didn't have enough room for a 24" standard dishwasher and it does a wonderful job. My only reason for wishing I had waited a little longer is because when I ultimately purchased a full sized 24" Bosch for my permanent home in another state (both from Best Buy stores), it came with a third top shelf for individually laying out silverware to be washed. I love this feature which eliminates the silverware basket near the bottom shelf and am sorry it wasn't offered on the smaller sized dishwasher. Both, however, are so quiet that one of them has a red light which shines on the floor to verify that the machine is still running!

    We bought this for our new home (as it has an old kitchen with no dishwasher). I cut out the cabinet next to sink (only had 18" of room to spare, not enough for regular 24" dishwasher) Easy to install, comes with everything you need, hoses pre-connected, also adapter to plug into regular 120 VAC outlet. Online description labeled this as a black stainless dishwasher, not true, it is black exterior with a stainless interior. black color is ok, but wish it was black stainless exterior. Very happy with how quiet it operates, reviews said it was quiet, but they didn't do it justice, it is very very quiet. we run it as night just before bed, cant even hear it run when your in the kitchen.

    I bought the dishwasher for a small rental cottage on Cape Cod. 18" dishwashers are hard to come by and surprisingly expensive, but I had constraints of space. We recently bought a Bosch for our home on the basis of CR ratings and liked it (although my wife finds the tines a bit close together for loading, as compared to our old one). I want to commend the installers, who had trouble finding our house but persisted late into the afternoon (after they had first returned the dishwasher to the warehouse, in fact). They did a very professional installation. Because it is in a rental unit I do not have direct experience of its operation.

    Everything comes out sparkling clean. It's also quiet enough to run while I'm doing other things at home. I don't use the delay to run it while I'm sleeping because the drain in the sink makes gurgling sounds when it empties and these wake me up. I did not previously have a dishwasher in my home. The 18' size fit perfectly where one of my cabinets used to be. I live alone and don't usually run it more than once a week. However, it makes it possible to entertain without the mountains of dishes to hand wash. I REALLY LOVE this machine.

    Excellent, quiet dishwasher

    We were looking for a white 18" dishwasher and the Bosch fit the bill. Installation was easy. The dishwasher came with everything needed besides a copper T fitting for the hot water input. The Best Buy dishwasher installation kit included this piece and some teflon tape. The unit is as described and is remarkably quiet. The sound of the water coming through the pipes is louder than the machine itself. We are very pleased.

    Super Quiet 18" D/W

    This machine was so quiet when I first turned it on that I kept pressing the ON button thinking that it wasn't working. One really has to strain to hear it! Only completed 4-5 washes as of now but so far so good. My only complaint is that the machine is significantly lower than my counter top, so it's necessary to use the adjustable legs to bring it up to a point where it doesn't look odd (with a big gap between top of machine and countertop).
