This review is both premature (this dishwasher was installed four days ago) and reactive (we had a super-crap Maytag dishwasher for four years). But with those caveats: I'm in love!
When we were shopping for a replacement d/w, because of the amount of plastic we wash I was so firm on on the d/w being able to dry, but our other "must-haves" were third-rack, stainless interior, exposed controls, which kinda limited the pool. Because we'd had a Kitchen-Aid which was ridiculously expensive and which then died four years later, we have a strong bias against them, so that was also off the list. Because of our recent unacceptable experience with Maytag (which we'd chosen based on the rec from the popular consumer magazine as well as online reviews), that was also off the list.
So here we are with the Bosch.
It is so quiet -- it is running right now and I had to keep checking "is it on?" Yes, it is.
Every time we've run it since installation everything has come out bone dry, including all our plastics. I'd forgotten what that was like ....
I will say that I definitely see some of the nits others have mentioned:
-the tines are spaced rather closely, forcing creative (aka awkward) placement of some items, especially in the bottom rack. (For example, I cannot get our pan / pot lids to fit because the tines are too narrow, so they have been perched at a rakish angle.)
-the three trays, especially the top two, are not smooth operators. Especially the third rack -- that you really have to jimmy to get it back in, which feels stupid and makes me feel a bit resentful, like "really? Brand new not inexpensive d/w, and the racks are giving me grief?"
-the utensil tray's openings are not big enough for some of our cutlery. I am a HUGE proponent of the business-end of cutlery being up (so as to be thoroughly cleaned), but our silver has decorative bottoms, and the knives and dinner forks have LARGE decorative bottoms: they do not fit in even the largest of the openings. I really like using the cutlery dividers because nothing can then nest together (and not get cleaned), but that's not an option, unless I lay them on the upper (third) rack. Which I don't and probably won't, because that I am using for sippy-cup innards and spatulas / tongs.
I know, very first world-champagne issues, but it's also true.
So, would I buy this again, based on my extensive use these past four days? YES. This is about the most money I am now willing to spend on a dishwasher given their short lives, and, given our must-haves, it fills the bill. Plus it cleans beautifully, dries thoroughly, and is super quiet.
